Good Day

Today's been a good day. I got out early and found me a new interim computer and a decent price and I was back home before lunch.
I started copying the files off my old disk drive and if any of you have had computer issues in the past, know this is a prolonged process.
I had 168 gig of music. Let that sink in for a moment. That's 168 billion bytes of musical data on my old computer. I had almost that many pictures. When I did a copy command, the lights dimmed in the house.
Once I got that started, I went down and worked at Davis Cemetery for a while. It's Decoration Sunday at Davis. I'm on the board of directors for the cemetery and I wanted it to look nice.
The folks we have cutting the grass do a great job. Jamie Bradford at Souther Pride Lawn Service maintains the cemetery.  I know he can't be charging for all the work his crew does because Davis is a very old cemetery that's been there for almost two hundred years. There are native Americans buried there. We have Civil War veterans there and even someone who fought in the Spanish American War. The graves are laid out in a haphazard fashion and it's difficult to get any equipment in there to make the job simpler.
When I got home this afternoon, I worked on a rock wall at the top of our driveway. I've been picking up creek rocks out of the hollow for some time, so it's taken a while to get enough to make the wall look right.
Jilda came in and shot a photo with her iPhone.
It will take a day or two to get the computer up to speed, but I'm thankful I had backups.
If you don't do anything else this weekend, make backups of your computer data. You will thank me sooner or later.
