10,000 Photos

My computer died.

I took it to the doctor.

The doctor said, “Just think of this as an opportunity to upgrade.”

I asked the doctor if he could save the photos.

The doctor said, “Sure, how many photos?”

“Four children, three years.”

He assured me a little flash drive would be enough.

Today the doctor called me, “Uh, Mrs Phillips?  You’re going to need to bring in a big hard drive.  You have over 10,000 photos on that computer.”

I guess the doctor didn’t understand what I meant when I said, “Four children, three years.”

I’m using Clay’s computer tonight.

I opened up his photo files.

So many memories.

I chose a recent photo that makes me smile.

Ellen and her very patient date getting ready to go to the winter formal.

I feel a bit weird not having a computer in my life.

It will be a while before I can replace it.

I wish I could access those photos.

Those 10,000 photos.
