That is a monster TV. Hope vacation was fun.

J-Wim said...

a) My mother always told me you were a grown up when you drank coffee. Therefore, I have never drank coffee. Diet Coke=not grown up yet.
2) We alwasy said we knew we were old when we watched the weather channel and the news at 5, 6, and 10. (BTW- Mike does all of these things, plus watches the 630 news as a bonus...... I'm just saying....)

Thanks for sharing!

Ohhh -- I forgot Rudy.

92" -- party at Dan-O's house!

Another Reality-TV-Aholic -- I wonder if there is some connection between this sickness and being formerly fat?

The world awaits -- how was vacation?

Glad you're back! I hope you and the family had a super time on vacation.
You and Bigun are alike when it comes to BIG TV and lots of movies. he has a mutli dvd player and 61"screen too. I had a hard time listing the movies, there really are so many I could watch over and over

92"? Are you sure your not saying it's a wee bit bigger than it truly is? Once again I have to say mine's not that big.

the baseball games on diretv are awesome. I'm torn between watching my hometown Reds and watching the Yankees. Watching the Yanks is like getting to watch the all star game everyday.

Pat, funny you should ask. I exchanged emails yesterday with Big Mike and he told me that he measured 92 inch to see how big that is. So I thought to myself, hey I paid for 92 inch but I never did measure it. So when I got home I pulled out my tape measure and am Proud to say it is as big as advertised (the TV that is).
