Wednesday with the Cowboys

with one comment

On Wednesday I accidentally formatted a CF card BEFORE downloading the images and spent most of the night waiting for softaware to retrieve those images. Yay Lexar Image Rescue software. The images were recovered. It looks like I was in the mood for mustaches when I made this quick edit.
