31 Day Photo & Prompt Challenge Day 9

**Linking up to It's Gravy Baby's 31 Day Photo and Prompt Challenge**

Day 9 - my most treasured item

Undoubtedly my photos.

Hands down, no questions asked.
I mean of course if some sort of disaster was to occur I would grab kids, pets then photos. I've lost 2 entire years worth of pictures due to hard drive failures and now I am careful to burn them all to a disk. With our latest crash I did lose a handful of pictures, but nothing major. Nothing like 2 years worth. When the tech came out he said I should run, not walk to the nearest store to buy an external hard drive. He said everyone should really have one, because you're computer gives no warnings, it just dies.

Now if only I had the time to sort and scrap them all.


  1. It sux so bad when technology fails on you and you lose so many pictures of the dear ones in just a second. But hey we can always use our mental cameras to take pictures of our memories... click.. awwwww you blinked:)(if you're watching The Office then you've definitely seen Jim&Pam's wedding and get the reference.. if not.. well YOU SHOULD!:P hi hi:) I am now following you thanks to Friday Blog Hop, and it would be so nice if you could share the love back on my blog;)

  2. You are so right, and it's such a daunting task!!!! I need to save my photos ASAP! :)

  3. Good point, I need to go get one as well. Especially since my pc has been acting like it has been. Thank you for stopping by my blog! I will go check out those blogs you suggested! I am following you as well.

  4. Oh my gosh I'd lose my lunch if I lost two years worth of photos. I do need to be much better about printing them out. Thanks for the reminder. I'll get to that. One of these days.
