Out of commission....temporarily!

Hi everyone! Sorry for the silence lately, but we had a WICKED thunderstorm blow through here Monday night and our next door neighbor's house was struck by lightning (really...there's a HOLE in the front of their house!). We think the current must have traveled through the phone lines because our phone system and main desktop computer are COOKED! The computer (which has all my camera software and pictures on it!) is with the Geek Squad right now and they are figuring out how to either revive or repair/replace it (kudos to Kevin for opting for the extended service plan!). SO...we are checking emails and TRYING to work on a rickety old Sanford and Son jerri rigged computer held together with duct tape and powered by a retarded geriatric hamster pedaling a rusty bicycle under the desk. (Not really...but you get the idea).

SO...stick with us and check back every few days and hopefully we'll be back in one piece again soon!

Slurpy kisses to all!

S-Dog and the family

WoWie! We are so glad you are not hurt. We had a tornado here in NH this afternoon. And TONS of rain. Good luck getting the computer back together. Hope it can be repaired.

I'm just glad you, your family, and your house are all safe! Here in CO, we have had several houses and acres burned down by lightning strikes. Glad you're OK!

Look forward to you getting back!
