Hiya Miss Carole Barrel,
I'd forgotten that silly name for you .... either you intend to stretch my time, or our manuscript will remain undone ... received a new Mac from Apple but the time machine backup HD failed.
Luckily, also made a CD copy of what was on the desktop before returning the other. Am writing this in way older workhorse 2009 computer ... won't know what is missing until I need it.
Had mounds of files saved in text edit, mostly research to build place: time/history; they are gone.
So hoping recent rewrites were saved. Haven't quite looked because also needed to update Word to work with OS 13. 10. 1 ... it looks different and am waiting for new HD to arrive before resuming.
Images blicked away too, into the ether. Had a very few on my phone, technology after your time here. Same with cloud storage, or not.
Relating to, yesterday went to our favorite Ross specifically wanting doggie ornaments for holiday mantle. Had a few nebbishy things in basket, but no doggies. Then, after three loops around the same section, there they were ... right on top where they had not been.
In plain sight.
Doggies was all it took.
Gaiety and mirth.
They, you and I came home. Thanks, schwestie.
