Third time in two months that our Dish receiver has gone out. Doesn’t bother me one bit . . I’m not going to say I wish the TV would go out because I know we’d just go buy a new one but . . I’m no fan of the TV. Tonight Vince said . . if it goes out one more time, I have a good mind to cancel the whole thing. Then he saw the excitement on my face and he clarified . . if it goes out one more time, I’m canceling the DVR and the HD. He was so aggravated with them today that he canceled part of what we had. We’re down to just the basic channels now. Oops . . just read this to Vince and he said . . no we’re not. We have lots of channels. Dang it . . maybe after 4 or 5 more receivers going out, we can get down to the basic channels.
I don’t see the point in having a TV but if you have to have one, why on earth do you want to pay to watch it? I remember when I was a kid, we only got 3 or 4 channels and it was free, and we sat down at talked as a family! We went for days that the TV was never turned on.
I suppose, if I really stretch my imagination, I can think of why it’s kinda fun to have a TV if there are certain shows you enjoy watching. I’ve really tried to get hooked on shows . . I just can’t. There have been times when everyone was raving about a series and I thought . . I’m going to make myself watch that and like it and I just couldn’t. American Idol, Dancing with the Stars . . never seen a single episode.
Know the last thing I remember being interested in? Flamingo Road. How long ago was that?
