First off, thank you all so much for your kind thoughts (and helpful suggestions) regarding yesterday’s post and the loss of my external hard-drive. It was suggested that I take it to a computer specialist that we occasionally use at our school. He’s the ‘big guns’ we call in when something is really serious. He’ll take a look at it but said it sounds promising because it’s still making power noises.
I am still not too terribly upset about it. Why get all worked up over it only to find that it’s a simple fix? I’m still able to take photos, and will just store them on the hard drive on my laptop here. I am still able to edit the photos in PS, however 90% of my textures (both free downloads and purchased) are on that hard drive. And I have tons of textures. Still – plan on remaining calm until I find out the news.
Ah, well. I only took a few photos today. Took the day off work to do another trip to Johns Hopkins with my husband. It was a follow-up MRI, and all is well for the moment. We were told to have a happy holiday and to do something fun. So that’s good news!! We were both really surprised and glad.

When we got to the city at 9 am, it was sunny and nice. When we left at 2, the sky was laden with clouds and it was quite chilly.
Chesapeake City Bridge, Maryland
I’d just dropped off the hard drive. This bridge is really high and traverses the C&D Canal which is a short cut between the Chesapeake Bay and the Delaware River for all sorts of huge cargo ships, and anybody else who wants to take a short cut.
I made angel hair pasta tonight and heated up some homemade spaghetti sauce I had stored in the freezer. I was only planning on eating half of this meal and taking the other half to school tomorrow.
But I love pasta with sauce (and freshly-grated Asiago cheese on top). And besides, the plate is really small.

Once again, thanks for your kindness, and for your friendship. I’m still reading many of your comments at this point ~
ps – figured out how to get my signature back. Can’t believe I didn’t think of it last night. I must have been a little bit frazzled!
