This afternoon, I received this email at work. (For background, see the second half of the previous post below.)
I know that it was stupid of me to delete the photos without having backed them up first. I'm sorry. However, even though I am stupid often, I wanted to remind you that you are married to me, and with that comes some good things too. To illustrate I wrote a formula:
Nerd + Computer Geek + Don't Give Up Easily + Star Wars Rules = These attached (and 10,000 other recovered) pictures.
I love you!
To sum up my response: cheering and smiling and love.
