I must have been glimpsing the future as I typed up yesterday's post.

30 minutes after I published it, I was at the bookstore trying to mop up the nearly half inch of water that had flooded in with the evening's rainstorm. One of the downspouts was dislodged, allowing all the roof runoff into the building.

Not a book was lost (okay, a few romance paperbacks I had lying around) but the cardboard box containing all of the unpublished forgotten bookmarks was right in the middle of the lake. I'm still going through the damage, but so far it looks like a total loss.

Happily, Moon Shadow is here to save the day. They send along this find:

In today's mail was my book order for "Photoshop CS3: Photographer's Handbook". The attached two bookmarks were in it. The medical center map with all the circles and arrows and a second sheet with notes and figures.


Thanks Moon Shadow.
I will do my best to keep up with the updates.

  1. Wow! Sorry to hear about the water damage. You're the second blogger that I've "saved" recently...

    You'd think I could keep my own blog more up to date. ;)

  2. Yikes! So sorry to hear about the flood!

  3. Oh no! Glad most of the books are alright, but hope some of the forgotten bookmarks can be salvaged! Good luck!

  4. How awful! I hope there's no other damage. This is more than bad enough!

  5. That's what you get for reading romance novels at work...(snicker)

  6. Sorry to hear about your flood. I hope that the cleanup is not toobad. I shall wait patiently for future forgotten bookmarks.

  7. Even damaged I would love to see the bookmarks.
