In case you are wondering why on earth I just haven't been keeping up with blog posting, let me indulge (for myself mostly) momentarily. Our main laptop has died. Yes, it died. We have a small notebook computer that has recently contracted some very serious hard drive ailments and allows me *maybe* 30 minutes of internet time before shutting down. While we were able to back up all of our photos from the other computer, I haven't been able to load any new pics from our camera. HOWEVER, the happy news amidst all of this is that today we received a very wonderful gift from the Fed-ex man....a NEW (to us) lappy from a generous family friend. I have yet to experiment with it, but am very excited....hopefully I can get some new pics up very soon!
