This is what happened:
When I moved to Kansas in January 1998, I bought a computer. And I put a lot of pictures on it. Then a few years later, I acquired a computer through my job, and I put a lot more pictures on that one. Over the years, I acquired a third computer (the one that I'm using now) and it has about a bajillion pictures on it.
Meanwhile, I've been toting the two old computers around, not wanting to get rid of them until I could get the pictures off. Since one didn't even have a CD drive, and one had a CD drive but not a burner, I was at a loss.
Then I remembered my wonderful friend Matt, who in my eyes is a computer genius. I handed the computers over to him, and within hours he had all of my pictures on a CD. *happy dance* I traded him a loaf of hot fresh banana bread for the CD.
I've been tripping down memory lane ever since. Pictures from these two old computers will be resurfacing, as some of them are just too good not to share! And face it, some of them are just wonderful blackmail material.
Picture it: Wichita, July 2005.
