A New Cable Box Could Be the Best Thing That Ever Happened To My Summer…


August 2019

I’m a creature of habit.  I find something I like and I stick with it.  Easy, peasy, lemon squeezy.

A few months ago, at the urging of our old cable box that kept putting messages up our our screen, trying to cajole us into taking our old cable box in for the latest and greatest, my wife finally succumbed to the pressure.  I could have held out indefinitely.

In came the new box, and the vastly improved HD version of all our favorite channels.

And just like that, I no longer knew where my favorite channels were.  And just like that, I quit watching TV.  Sure, my kids are prone to binge on The Office or Friends, but I’ve hardly flicked the power on in the last couple of months.

Now, to be fair, I still stream an episode of Diners, Drive-ins and Dives every night to fall asleep to, but Lord Almighty, I’ve really enjoyed having time to do stuff.  I actually pulled out all of my woodworking tools to build a new, vastly lighter, bike rack for the camper the other day (I wrapped it up yesterday before heading over to the Tuesday Night Club Ride).

To be fair, this’ll only last till the snow flies, and they’re saying this winter will be a doozy, but I’ll take it while I can get it!  Thanks Cable Company!

    Ha, ha. You should send that to the company’s marketing department. They wouldn’t know what to do with it 😉

  2. When the DVR broke on one of our TVs, I found myself watching less and less TV. I never did get it fixed. More time on my hands to be productive!!!

    I try not to watch too much tv, aside from sport.

  4. I shunned cable TV several months ago. It was the best move EVER.
