Good News, Bad News

Good news:
All my blood work came back normal (long story, not important).
Bad news:
The doctor could have told me that over the phone instead of making me pay for an office visit and miss two hours of work.

Good news:
I have inherited my son’s beautiful 42” Samsung HDTV until they get settled in back here in Beaumont. Then, I’ll finally be forced to buy my own new television, because my family has vowed to destroy my 20 year-old 26-inch console Zenith which has been my faithful companion lo these many years.
Bad news:
When I exchanged my regular DVR for an HD DVR, I lost all my recorded programs including my Hayes Carll clip from CBS Sunday Morning a few weeks ago.

Good news:
When I went to the cable company to exchange my DVR, there were only two people in front of me and the whole exchange, including waiting in line, took a total of fifteen minutes. The wait in line alone is usually at least twice that long. It was a little cable television service miracle.
Bad news:
My internet and, therefore, my phone (because I’m cheap and decided to “Bundle”) are down. This means another excursion to Time Warner. Whaddayuwanna bet I won’t be as lucky with my modem exchange as I was with my DVR exchange?

Brian loves our HDTV. You've seen it! We watched a fat British woman getting a colonic on the morning of my wedding. Hahaha. Memories...

Just - Thanks!

Ms. E - What a great weekend that was.

Old Horsetail - You are absolutely right. In fact, it was fixed with a phone call.

Grimm - Can you believe it?

Glad your blood work came back ok, I hope nothing else is wrong. My doctor has someone call on the phone and he sends a letter.

Have fun with the new tv. Sorry about Hayes Carl clip, maybe its on youtube?

Hope you phone and internet are back up, that sort of thing drives me nuts.
