Tucker tribute: Sentimental ol' me

I've had my iPad mini for about two years. I regularly delete photos from it (mostly of the cats) or I'd regularly run out of space.

For sentimental reasons, I'm unable to delete certain photos, like the first one I ever took with it. . .

These are early photos I can't delete either.


It's sort of silly, I guess. They are backed up and saved in two locations. I also have photos of my late Grandmother from the birthday party we gave her about 7 months before she died (oddly, today marks the one year anniversary of her death).

Is it just me? Are you unable to delete certain photos too?

Yes, I am the same way. For me it just re-enforces the special memories and events those photos represent. If I delete it seems to me that it diminishes the event.

same here....they can be backed up, but certain pictures will stay on my phone

I am the same. What makes them more special in the camera memory?

My human rarely deletes photos from anywhere! She really needs to make some more room on her iPhone.

I keep a lot of photos and regret I didn't keep more from the 'before' the internet.

Those are beautiful photos of Tucker. I completely understand, I do the same thing with photos of my past kitties.

I have my laptop backup, but I also have a separate back up, plus I save all the photos to my laptop. Unfortunately I don't have a lot of photos pre-computer. I'm sad to say I only have a few photos of Silver, Shady and Silas.

Gorgeous photos of Tucker. It's wonderful you have these.

I have over a thousand photos I can't seem to delete. even after I back them up and know they are safe somewhere else. I know it will make me smile when I scroll back through my pictures looking for something, so I leave them. I dread getting a new phone.

I'm guilty of keeping photos like that, too, even if they are backed up elsewhere. I find it very comforting.

Lucy is a good nurse

My surgery went as expected and I'm doing ok. Lucy has been on nurse duty and is taking the job very seriously.
