But it's not like the sea...

It's been a week of FAIL for me lately.  I hope things really do happen in threes, because maybe that means my bad luck is over for a while! 

The laptop I've been using decided to die yesterday.  Thankfully, I regularly back up my writing to a web server, so I don't have to worry about that.  But I have no clue what else was on my computer that I didn't bother backing up.  Ugh.  I'm sure there are quite a few VDP files that I may have just lost.  Moral of the story: do scheduled back-ups of your hard drive to some place external!!!

And then today, Malcolm P. (one of our cats) decided to jump out the window to capture a bird or something.  You'd have to ask my husband why the screen was not down and why he heard and saw nothing.  Luckily, I was in the dining room on the floor below because I heard a crash and saw a big puff of white!  Doesn't appear that he broke anything, but I'm still panicking.  Kids!!

That said, I hope you all have a safe Memorial Day!
Many thanks to all those who have risked and given their lives for the safety and freedom of our own!
