Hi there. Here I am writing this entry with a new dryer full of wet clothes running. How come one store can manage to get something delivered to your home and installed less than 24 hours after you purchase it and others take days and in one case 2 weeks? We buy the new washer and dryer Tuesday, and Wednesday it showed up on a truck that made it up my driveway no problem. The new units are great except I haven't figured out how to mute the dryer when its finished. It doesn't make a game show buzzer sound. This one when its done plays a tune that reminds you that the ice cream man is coming. It can get to be annoying when you're doing multiple loads. Not only did I get my home appliances on Tuesday, I had two of the online purchases I made arrive that day and I actually had a winning a bid on Ebay. I finally caved in and searched for something on Ebay that I've always wanted to own. A piece of animation cel art. I found a cel from the Archie's cartoon produced by Filmation that ran in late 60's and early 70's. This should be fun going to the antiques store that does framing in Warrensburg. First I brought that "big record" in to be framed and now a piece of cartoon art. Good thing they haven't seen the movie posters I have somewhere in my garage.
One of the dilemas that occasionally happen at the radio ranch is when a game that we plan to do on WWSC gets moved to another date and conflicts with something already scheduled. In this case it was the Queensbury/Glens Falls hockey game at the Civic Center. It was moved from this coming Tuesday 1/15 to last Tuesday night 1/8. I found out at the last minute when I read the Sunday paper two days before it took place. I was not a happy camper. We had a basketball game already scheduled for that night and stuck with it. Too late to switch.
Shut up already about Tim Tebow! First it was the Jets circus, then the Jaguars and their new GM saying we're not interested. The Broncos lose to Ravens and if Tim Tebow had played they would have won. No they wouldn't have! Joe Flacco has got his confidence back and played a heck of a game. Tim Tebow is a stand up guy, but I personally think he likes seeing his name in the headlines and on the back page and sports talkers bring him up constantly. Just go to Canada and play for the Hamilton Tiger Cats or the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
Also shut up about Robert Griffin the 3rd and his knee. Mike Shanahan felt they had the best chance to win with him at only 75 percent than with Kirk Cousins at 100 percent. Also Griffin being the competitor that he is felt he could play. I watched Outside the Lines this morning and Mr.Griffin was the topic of the day and his injury and the race card was brought up. Must have been a slow news week. How about giving the Seahawks some credit? Solid running game, nasty defense and a smart kid behind center in Russell Wilson.
Same thing goes with the 49ers. I watched Colin Kaepernik play on tv a few times in college at Nevada and some of the things he did, the combination of his size and smarts you could see he would be successful at the next level.
I'll admit this morning that I watched Cartoon Network and The New Looney Tunes Show. Almost fell off the couch laughing so hard when Bugs Bunny in a panic told his doctor when looking at his diploma, "You went to Syracuse! That's a basketball school!" Also was very happy to see The Animaniacs on the The Hub network. I've got to find them on Blu-Ray for my niece Morgan and get her hooked like I did with Tiny Toon Adventures.
It's taken 6 years and tv viewers are now finally discovering "The Big Bang Theory?" One of the few times I was on that train before everyone else was.
Last year it was homemade pasta and this year my cooking challenge will be, envelope please: Ice Cream.
Still haven't written out "thank you" cards. I've been slacking in making appointments for a dental cleaning, my chiropractor, and some other stuff. Got to run. That's either Mr.Ding-a-Ling driving by my house or the dryer calling saying its time to fold clothes...Leccese out.
