Any Way Saturday
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
We got home last evening.
After having had no sleep for 33 hours straight, I half-way unpacked and went to bed around 9:30pm and slept until 8:16am this morning.
Then my lovely wife woke me up and reminded me that I had volunteered to help set-up the hall [tables and chairs] for the wedding reception this afternoon.
We finished that - went to the wedding at 11am ... to the reception that lasted until 4pm ... helped clean-up the hall ... came home and went to the 5:30pm evening vigil mass and came home.
I sat down at the computer.

It was my intention to post some pictures from our 25th wedding anniversary trip to the Hawaiian Island of Oahu.
I took almost 30o great pictures - make that probably closer to 250 great pictures - keepers - and another 50 of the trash-can variety.
and started to download these 300 great pictures.
There were some other older pictures from an earlier June wedding, so I wanted to delete those older pictures.

Can you guess what happened next?

And now the media card is empty.
And you don't get to see any of those 300 great pictures ... and neither will any of my kids ... or other friends ... or my wife [who is at the grocery store while I stayed behind to download these 300 great pictures].

Have a great Saturday.

When I get over this, I'll try to post some comments about the trip.

Oh...I'm so sorry!

But glad you're both back safely and can't wait to hear about the trip (even if we can't see it!)

whoa! I would be in tears!! But more importantly you are back safely and you can't erase the memories.
Can't wait to hear about the trip.

Welcome home, though. Waikiki is surely nice, but there's nothing like sleeping in your own bed.
