Who needs it ?

by surrender884

My wife has left or three days. Our stepdaughter wants her help while she studies for exams. It is so quite here the only sound is traffic out on the interstate. The television has this odd function I never tried to figure out. The damn thing goes from a program to plenty of still life photos.  I for one enjoy it. Beautiful scenery in nature in slide show mode.                                                                                                                                                                                                                          After we learned that our cable TV / internet service was going to exceed one hundred and fifty dollars a month it was time to cut the cord. When you search for internet service for just in the home it is almost non existent. All provider sell bundles.  TV and internet together is the norm. Sure we can get internet only but, the price is no bargain unless your a new customer.                                                                                                                                                              Now my wife doesn’t have job, so our televisions are both on at least while I am at work. She even leaves one on to give the parakeet company while she is out. I know, strange. Today she calls me saying, ” such and such has TV and internet for $$$$. I am thinking she his coming to grips with no more fifty some channels when we use an antenna. Nope, nada, no way I tell her we are leaving cable TV forever.                                                                                                                 If there is one thing that is absolutely true, it is TV will suck your brains out and dumb you down.                                         Think I will read a book.
