Man In The House

It just throws a kink in the routine when the man of the house is sick.  My hubby came home on Tuesday doubled up in pain.  He got on the couch and hasn't moved in two days except to go to bed and the little room next to the bedroom........

Several sprites, a pitcher of tea later, I think he's on the mend.  He felt well enough today to get the remote control in his hand.  He watches Encore Western channel "all day".  That consists of Gunsmoke, Bonanza, etc. The shows are good, don't get me wrong, I like em too but  the commercials are getting me down.  They go from life and burial insurance to portable oxygen tanks to catheters (yes a commercial for catheters), and on to every disease know to man and treatment for it.  Don't forget the Medicare commercials that last at least 10 minutes.  I finally asked him if he thinks anyone under 50 watches this channel?  He said I know it's kinda depressing  (but he hasn't changed the channel yet!)  He can hold the remote til 8:00, that's when I take over! Grey's and Scandal tonight!!!

I have to tell you I am very pleased with the Windows 8 purchase!  It has made my computer dramatically faster and I really like the features of the program.  Still a lot to learn but I recommend it, if you are thinking of making the change.

Looks like he is on the mend if he can handle a remote. My husband is lucky that I rarely watch TV except for sports, and those sports he enjoys, too. We get along just fine with him watching TV and me playing with the computer.

I hope the man of the house feels better soon, Nanny! I hate those nasty bugs. Thank goodness for cable TV's thousand channel diversions...lol!

Thank you for your best wishes on the new apple of our eyes--she was totally worth the big move :)

We were wondering about that Windows 8. Thanks for letting us know. We were worried that it would be too difficult to learn.

Hope he's much better by now and that you didn't catch it!

I've said the same thing about commercials geared to middle aged adults and older. Depressing and kinda funny, too!

Oh the commercials! SO FUNNY! Hope Hubby is 100% by now!

My sister-in-law's husband is ill and homebound. Everytime we visit them, their TV is on that channel LOUD.... Yipes!!!!!

We did have a fabulous time at Mt. Nebo... I have said this so much--but we do LOVE your state...
