You might be a Redneck .........

If your hubby decides that a 12" TV is better than no TV! You know if you ever have heard Jeff Foxworthy that he says that "You might be a redneck if you have a little TV on top of a non working larger tv"

Well, for some reason, the day before Inagauration, our 36" TV, that we had bought used, went belly up. So, when hubby came home....he immediately got out our 12" TV that I have in the stamp room so he could watch television.

Now, mind you....the remote has long been gone....so now we are 'living in the 60's" and actually having to get up and turn the channel....no....that would be easier....we have to push the button xx number of times to reach the station we want to watch.

You see, we gave up our cable box...in order to save a little money....so we don't have a guide anymore on the TV.....so we now have to go to channel 11 and wait for that dang thing to scroll, ever so slowly, to see what's on TV....and HOPE you can remember what channels looked interesting....LOL

Then, you have to punch the button how ever many times to get to that channel.

Then, if the sound isn't quite loud enough....you have to get back up and punch the volume button.

My gosh...HOW did we ever make it in the 50's and 60's...ROTFL!!!!

Here is what it looked like after he hooked up speakers to it to make it louder .......

and here is what it looked like after I readjusted the dang wires... :-)



It's sort of funny to us...as we got along with a 19" for years and years. My Sister got a new TV (this one) and decided to give us her 27". We were thrilled!!!!

Then 2 1/2 years ago....she got a flat screen....so we bought our current one, the 36" from her. It was so much fun to see everything so much clearer.....and now we are back to a 12". Taking some adjustment.....but we are just glad to be in touch with the outside world.

It's pretty bad when your computer screen is bigger than your TV screen. :-)

Actually, it really doesn't bother me quite as much as DH as I rarely have the TV on during the day but he likes to watch his news shows and commentary shows at night.

It will be quite some time before we can get another TV....so we may opt to move the furniture in closer ROTFL!!!

Have a great day!!!

  1. Hey, that's the size of my tv! I'm ready to move the chair closer to see it. I remember the days of no remote very well. I do hope you get another large tv soon. At least you're getting exercise from the walking!

  3. I just had a good laugh! But I can laugh because my dad has a similar set up!! The bottom big tv has satelite and the little tv on top (with books wedged under it to keep it from falling off) has local cable. Too funny!

  6. I am cracking up because when I was growing up we had to turn the dial and me and my siblings always got the job of turning the channel whether we were watching it or not. Maybe that is why I don't care much for t.v. LOL
