"Oh no you didn't!" is what my wife heard as she walked by the office door earlier today.

As I then had to explain to her; ALL I was wanting to simply do; was a rebuilding of the playlist I've titled 'Favorites'! So yes, I did tell it to delete THE PLAYLIST. In whose world does the term 'playlist' include the entire library of music? Every single song that I have collected since I threw away my cassette tape recorder 4 decades ago, appears to've  *poof*  GOT-REAL-GONE!! As soon as I realized the severity of this situation I went and locked Clementine's PID, while I attempted to locate my music. That attempt to find and recover these files is almost 5 hours old presently. And so here I am. Hat in my hand, humbly looking to the 'wise men' for a bail out answer to my current nightmare.

I'm really hopeful someone can come up with that miracle for me, because as time goes on I know my chances for success are steadily getting slimmer. And that says nothing of my wife's I TOLD YOU NOT TO GET RID OF WINDOWS berating I am gonna be hearing forever...

So someone PLEASE help an old fool of man from being required to live out this upcoming winter in the dog house. Without a single Loretta Lynn song.
