Paignton Zoo with Family Millard
We met Family Millard at Paignton Zoo at ten o’clock. We had a smashing time and I took over four hundred pictures of animals, flowers, creatures and birds. The pictures of the family were priceless. Martin and Kim bought the boys plastic masks – one monkey – one tiger. I took great shots of Kim doing an impression of a chimp, arm actions and all. Bear wearing a mask with his glasses on the top. The family train journey and so many more.
Later on I downloaded the pictures as I always do onto Bears Mac. That’s where I do editing and stuff before copying them onto an external hard drive for safe keeping, too tired, sore throated, no voiced and feeling generally rough, I didn’t do the copying. At bedtime Bear asked to borrow his computer, not an unreasonable thing to ask and it began an update. Somehow, of its own volition the internal hard drive crashed. Devastated, he took it next day to the Mac shop and Miffy’s old school chum told him it was a gonna. Nadda, nunca, finished. With great sadness he came home and reported it’s demise, New hard drive installed. I wept.
So all we have left of this super day is the picture Bear took on Kim’s phone above.
ALL IN ALL A GREAT FAMILY DAY
LESSON LEARNED AND VERY SAD
