Once upon a time there was a boy and girl who got married and had a really cute baby boy. They loved him so much. He was so cute that his mom took pictures of him all day long. Pictures laying on the ground kicking, sleeping pictures, making silly faces, smiling, giggling, pictures of how he grew and changed every day, and esspecially pictures with those who love him who live (and are going to live) far away...etc. etc. One day her computer froze. The next day she was told that her hard drive crashed. She was in denial that this meant anything that bad. Until he told her all the data on the computer is lost and that it would be about $1500-$3000 to recover it. (...something about a "circuit" crash, rather than a regular crash) This is when she started to cry- a lot. LOST. All the pictures of their baby. LOST. All the pictures of their last couple years of marriage. LOST.
Moral of the story. BACK UP YOUR PICTURES!!! I am talking to YOU! It WILL happen to you so do it. NOW!
