I Shot the TV
I Shot the TV
This will be a brief post – after all, I am too embarrassed to say too much about my stupid mistake
I shot the TV – OK not literally – and, not even a clean kill – but it was dying a slow death so it was needing to be finished off ….
Now many of you know I am an avid outdoorsman – my fav’s are bow hunting elk and fly fishing – but I enjoy all the fish and game pursuits.
Well, I tagged a TV a few weeks ago ☹
Yup, I was grilling a steak outside and despite my best efforts some large Texas moths ( remember everything is bigger in Texas ☺ ) got in and were landing on the TV. So I grabbed the dish towel – my firearm of choice in the kitchen – and snapped at the moths with it
Yup – you guessed it – missed the moths but managed to kill some pixels on the TV –a nice white bullet hole appeared –S#%& !!
Well, that nice little white hole has been getting bigger and bigger and even colorful stripes were appearing on the TV
Can’t watch Charlie Sheen hopping in the sack with a couple of ladies with a TV like that…
So, brand new TV was necessary – and, being green now with my solar install – why not a super efficient LED TV from Samsung – reduced my power consumption a bunch – guess there’s a silver lining in everything . And, I got one of the “smart TV’s” – now I can connect to the internet through my RV network – bonus!!
With Marvin finished on the solar install I had him remove the old TV and bracket and build a new bracket mount – and , like the solar install, Marvin was meticulous with this job too
A few hours of work – remember, measure twice, cut once – I was up and running — nice!!
I promised brief so that’s all I am saying about this stupid – and ultimately expensive mistake –
thanks again Marvin for another outstanding effort
See you down the road…
