As of today - all the photos have been replaced in the blog! It's taken me over a year to complete!

Today, I looked to see if all my screen saver photos had downloaded to my phone's "gallery". They hadn't... neither had the photos that I kept on there of the grand-kids, horses, dogs etc. But! It's a BIG BUT... here were 522 photos from my blog! Hummm... not thinking - not much anyway - I thought why do I need to have all those photos on my phone??? Couldn't think of a single reason - so DELETED them with one key stroke!
Later in the morning, I went on-line - to my blog... Guess what I found??? I think you probably KNOW by now what I found... As it's the same thing YOU found when you checked out the blog today... NO PHOTOS! None AT ALL! ALL gone!
Disaster for me - anyway - since the pictures are what I enjoy about blogging! I went to my Picasa Web Albums & yes - you are correct - they were gone from there too! I looked everywhere for a restore... but NO - No restore anywhere for the pictures - or for the blog... The "back-up" key didn't do anything at all - so no idea what that's about.
Was so darn mad about the whole thing! Butch & I planned to take the guns & head for the Norpoint Shooting & Tactical Training Center today in Arlington. They have a price break for women on Monday's & offered a half-off special for Veterans today - what a deal. Believe me - I was ready to do some shooting! Too bad they didn't have a target with the Google Blogger logo!
I had downloaded the first year to a web-site that will turn it into a book - so have that much intact - but now I'm faced either with saying to heck with blogging - starting on from here - or trying to remember & restore all the photos. Thankfully I do have two external hard drives that I use as back-up! Don't know what I'll do yet, just take a step at a time I guess & start with my background photo & go from there!
Stayed tuned - even if it's pretty darn boring without the color!
