|That Red Fish was This Big...|
Then in all the chaos Disaster Struck... "The Cable DVR Quit. as in did not work. At All.... "
It was like The End Of The World.
I had to decide to leave Bob Home Alone and fret over him or let him have another stroke because he could not watch NASCAR and NHRA.
I drove straight to Spectrum and exchanged the DVR, Be glad you were not a fly on the wall while we hooked it up...
Alas! they changed the FORMAT... the menu on the screen, everything we use was DIFFERENT.. Bob Panicked. It was NASCAR/NHRA week end.. Disaster Averted, I figured it out...He calmed down, the whole week end was pre-recorded by Madsnapper
There it was, waiting to be watched and he went to hospital.
The good news was, when he came home 3 days later there was lots and lots, hours and hours of racing to watch.
I have pondered if the death of the DVR could have caused the stroke??? hummmm
We came home from hospital and Day Two at home.... NO CNN! the noise he made, OH MY!
the only channel missing out of 87 million was NOT THERE.. for hours...
I checked the TV in the bedroom. THERE it was.. He did not miss it enough to watch it on the tiny 36 inch flat screen (remember the 19inch). HE WANTED THE BIG SCREEN. I mean who cares, all they do is yada yada blah blah . (in my opinion)
Listening to his ranting, I picked up the phone and dialed 611 which is a direct line to Spectrum and GUESS WHAT..... I got a recorded message saying Due to high call volumn, we can not answer your call, If you are calling about missing channels ..We are Aware of The Problem with CNN, our engineers will have it repaired shortly.... whooo boy I bet those lines were HOT..
I do solemnly swear this is NOT a Whopper Story but the whole truth and nothing but the truth.
