Oh Sally you crack me up.  :)   I am so glad you found the problem and don't have to worry about not being on the site as much.  So did your new Bff Bobby tell you how to install the memory card??? I think that would be a good thing to get so you don't have to delete pictures or videos.


Love your google on your fancy computer :) clapclapsuperstar

You know me so well Michelle! When my BFF Bobby told me ....shhhh....I could purchase the memory card cheaper at Walmart...I did immediately say..."Do you think Walmart will put it in for me?" He smiled..."Just come back here...I'll do it for you."way-cool

Yeah Lori...I'm here! Couldn't leave my REAL BFFs!!!

Glad you got it worked out, Sally!

Our story: Broke rear leg in June 2013 - non-conclusive results for cancer so leg was plated and pinned. Enlarged spleen in September 2013 and had it removed and was diagnosed with Hemangiosarcoma and started chemotherapy. Became a Tripawd January 8th, 2014 and definitive Hemangiosarcoma diagnosis. Three major surgeries in 7 months and Shelby took them all like a champ only to lose her battle to cancer in her brain. We had 8 amazing extra months together and no regrets. #shelbystrong #loveofmylife
