We Have TV and Waiting For The Results

DeBary, FL.

71 deg. clear, no wind.
Forecast = Partly cloudy with thunderstorms and rain showers in the afternoon. High of 93F. Breezy. Winds from the ENE at 10 to 20 mph. Chance of rain 20%.

Thursday morning, before Linda went to the doctor, "The Antenna Guys" came and talked to Jim about the installation. Ray, one of the "Antenna Guys" had an antenna with him and a small TV to  check the signal quality. He determined that a different antenna was needed, but being that he didn't have the needed antenna in his truck, he came back Friday and completed the installation.

We now have TV and are able to receive all the major channels. In fact we receive a total of 48 channels!!

So, for the price of about 2 or 3 months of basic cable or satellite, we have an antenna which receives free over-the-air TV without further costs. For someone who can be satisfied with just the major networks like ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, PBS and some others like CW and ION, this is the way to go.

Of course you have to be near enough to a metropolitan area to be able to receive the signals.

About all that happened Saturday was that CLT took Jim and Linda over to Bed Bath & Beyond to purchase a few items for the house. They didn't get everything that they wanted, (the prices were too high on some items), but they did get some of the things they wanted.

For dinner Saturday, Linda ordered a pizza from a local pizza place, "Gentili's Pizza" and then Jim took CLT and went and picked it up.

Sunday was a day to just kick back and take it easy. You know, football on TV, naps, that kind of thing.

Yesterday, (Monday), was grocery shopping day. Jim and Linda took CLT and went to Winn Dixie and just about bought the store out. There were a lot of sales this week on items that they use regularly, so they stocked up. Then, in the evening, Laura and Lindsey stopped by for a little while just to visit and bring some mail that had come to their house.

Don't know what's going to happen today. The test results from Linda's doctor visit are supposed to be back either today or tomorrow, so both Linda and Jim are waiting for them.

Not much else happening worth posting about. I'll be sure to let you know when those results come in.

Did you know that on this date in 1913 - The Lincoln Highway opened? It was the first paved coast-to-coast highway in the U.S.
