Try the

puppy pfix=ram
at the grub screen on boot up. It looks like you have a corrupted save file from improper power off or a brownout voltage spike.

If it boots OK. Delete your personal save file and start over from scratch. Save what you have on .sfs file to usb like documents, movies, books, whatever.
