a plasma thanksgving

even though the ABC network broadcast a christmas special last night, we still have another major holiday to get to first: thanksgiving.  i love thanksgiving, not so much for the decor (turkeys sort of scare me), but for the actual meaning of the season, i.e., giving thanks for the tremendous array of blessings i enjoy in my life, from the huge ones like my family, to the mundane ones like large-handled coffee mugs.  and everything in between.  so, to get things started off...



a regular reader of the blog, dlm, recently asked us if we would like a plasma tv.  we have been watching tv on the same sanyo television for our entire marriage and, while it worked just fine, it was a heavy, large beast that no longer showed us the whole picture.  while we were content with it, this gift of a new television was wonderful.  but not only that, in order to receive this gift, our whole entertainment center had to be reconfigured in order to house the plasma tv.  so dlm graciously provided time and talent every step of the way, building a bracket and new shelves into our old entertainment center, and even coming to my house to help me install it.  basically, this effectively eliminated the need for me to touch any tools, which is a really good thing for everyone involved. 

so last night the kids watched the madagascar christmas special on our new plasma tv.  and we are all thankful to dlm for his generosity, his time, and his friendship.  what/who are you thankful for today?

I was visiting friends this weekend and they have a big, new HD LCD tv with the sound and everything and I was envious - not covetous I don't think - and wondering how and if I could 'sell' the idea of upgrading our smallish regular old tv to my wife. After reading your story, I'm thankful for our smallish regular old tv.

Bill was watching Glee at our friend's house when he was thankful for our tv. There was a shot that was of Finn and Mr. Schuester throwing a football back and forth. except it was a wide shot, and on their old tv all they saw was the background. Yup, just some blue sky and empty football field. Welcome to the wonderful world of wide screen. You'll see so much more ;)
