See this photo?
It’s important for two reasons.
1. It proves that I attended a tractor show. That in itself is a near miracle. So it had to be documented. (OK. I’ll admit that I did attend one when I was a teenager, but I wasn’t thinking straight back then.) I reveled in the glory of the tractors, yes, but also in the sight of so many little old men (LOMs, to be precise) walking around in tractor awe. It was quite a good thing, too, that I didn’t have much cash on hand or my kid would be sporting a John Deere cap. And that would be putting him one step closer to a Nascar cap. No, no, no, no, no!
2. This photo was on a card that I formatted before downloading the photos to my computer. Which means it was blasted into oblivion, never to be found again. Except! That a wave of brilliance rained down upon me and I figured out how to download software to fix the problem. Software that would run only in Terminal on my Mac. And I have zero clue of how to use Terminal. Yet here it is, right before your eyes. Which means? I rocked Terminal. I found those invisible files and extracted them and got them back. Yessiree! Can you feel the pride emanating from the computer screen?
