They were selfish tears. Not because of Arizona, not because of not feeling well, not for anyone or anything except me. Last week my computer died on me. Fortunately, it was still under warranty. I spent almost an entire afternoon with a tech from HP trying to fix it remotely. She could not do it, so I packed my trusty little lap mate up and sent her off for repair. I paid extra to have the repairs expedited and to have HP collect and save two years worth of pictures. She was returned to me yesterday in like new condition. Exactly like new. NO pictures were saved, none of my patterns I had collected, nothing at all. She was naked, stark naked. I had to reinstall virus protection and all of my favorites. I did not mind doing that, after all I had my precious computer back in my arms. What she did not have with her was my pictures!!!!! The virus/worm that infected her had already deleted all of those things. Sad thing is that I had been telling myself for a couple of weeks to get my pictures off of my computer. It was a project for this month, you know, after the rush of the holidays. The tech at HP told me that even though I have a very good virus protection, it is not, unfortunately infallible.
All I have to say to the A$$%@!!# who has enough time on his hands to create these nasty creatures is: Get off of your lard ass and get off of welfare and get a real job!! If you were working at something respectful and constructive you would not feel the need to destroy what is not yours.
Guess I had better go buy that external hard drive now so this does not happen to me again.
The tears are dry and it is time for me to get on with life. I am so thankful for the few pictures I have posted here and on FB in the past two years. I do not have all of them, but at least I have a few.
