November 23

Seriously . . . who the heck is in charge of network programming these days?

Why are The Grinch, Frosty The Snowman, and Santa Claus Is Coming To Town on network TV IN NOVEMBER??

Why are they are AT THE SAME TIME and ON THREE DIFFERENT NETWORKS?

How am I supposed to watch all of my favorites if they’re competing against each other?!

Remember back in the day when you were sooo excited to see the holiday specials?  You scoured the TV Guide to find out when they were on and then camped in front of the TV so that you wouldn’t miss a minute?!  You could spend an entire week watching all the wonderful holiday shows.  It was a glorious time.

Yes, I know I can stream all of them on Netflix or Hulu, or I could get a DVD collection and watch them any time I want . . . but that’s not the point . . . and that’s not the same.

And, yes, I realize I sound like a very old person complaining about new fangled technology . . .

Thanks for listening . . .

Wild Wild Life

It’s Saturday night and we are home watching TV.

Classic Star Trek.

“The Trouble With Tribbles” to be exact.

I don’t know how we keep up this pace!

Too Much TV

Every night at 7:30, Millie barks and runs to the door.  Since Prince Charming and I are usually doing the dishes after supper, we have no idea what she might be barking at and go check on her.  She’s pacing and dancing at the front door like there’s somebody there.  So we open the door to see if there is someone on the front porch or if she’s heard somebody walking down the sidewalk.

Usually, there’s nobody there.  We tell her she’s a silly girl and she looks at us like we’re crazy.  If she could talk I’m sure she’d say “But, I swear I heard the doorbell.”

This is a new development for her and while it’s amusing to me to play this game with her every so often, I’m kind of curious what’s going on her mind to do this.  Is she feeling neglected and needing attention?  Is she bored and wants Mommy to play with her?  Is she developing some kind of early doggie Alzheimer’s? My doggie mommy worrying has been going off the charts!

Well I got my answer yesterday . . .

We had the TV on in the living room and “Wheel of Fortune” comes on at 7:30 . . . one of the sounds they use at the start of the show sounds a lot like our doorbell . . . and that’s what sets her off . . .

I feel much better now to know that she’s doing what she’s been taught to do . . . let us know if she hears the doorbell . . . and I have to remember to change the channel before 7:30!
