Unwinding To A Little Television


Pull Up A Seat

I am like so many other people

I find t.v. fascinating

There is so much to watch

I have to limit myself or I can easily go overboard

My wife and I like some of the same sitcoms

After about three hours I had enough

All this time I lay down on the couch and get real comfortable

My wife has her own special chair

I enjoy a light blanket over my body

Even though I am not cold

Our cat will make her rounds

Sometimes she will spend time with me

Laying on my chest

I pat her for awhile until my arm gets tired

Off to sleep she will go

Then when she gets hungry or decides she has to move

She stretches and jumps off

She walks to my wife and lays on the chair of the arm

Going for a little more attention I see

I catch part of the news

When I get up it is time for bed

If I am not tired I go on the computer and now I have to think

Before I didn't have too

Every show performs for you automatically

All you have to do is work the remote

To fast forward, change the channel, raise or lower the volume

Of course the most important of them all

The on and off button

I enjoy comedy and many types of humor

My wife likes her cooking shows

I like to eat everything she cooks

There are so many recipes she sees

Yet she will only cook a few new things

I am so lucky

I look forward to all our meals

They not only fill me up but taste so good

I wonder a lot about people that watch six to eight hours of t.v. a day

I don't have the time

There are a lot of good shows I would love to watch

I think that amount of t.v. becomes a little too much

When we could be doing something else a little more productive

There is a happy medium

I could easily watch Lifetime movie channel and On Demand

Even though that should be more than enough

We have Net Flicks too

It is cheaper than going to the movies

Every once and awhile we do that too

The world of entertainment

Right at our fingertips

I love to read and sometimes it is a hard choice to decide

I flip a coin

I do a little of one and then the other

Too much of one and none of the other

I think I have tried every combination

One thing is for certain

I enjoy both equally

I will not give up one

I try to do more reading than watching

Both make me happy

I think this year I will create a new invention

That will scientifically be able to tell

How much good both t.v. and books are for me

It will give me something I never had before

A guide and tape measure

To all hours of my pleasure

Gypsy Rose Lee I will check out Putlocker. I also love the Odd Couple and many other sitcoms. I am going to look for the Perfect Strangers I never heard of it. It is always nice to share and have so much fun doing it. Thank you for reading my Stoems.

The regular TV here is terrible. In the afternoons they have Latin soap opera translated into Latvian. For that reason, I don't have a TV. Anytime I want to I can watch the TV over the Internet. I have found a fantastic site Putlocker which lets me watch all my favorites from when I lived in NYC. I have watched all the seasons of Perfect Strangers and currently am into the awesome comedy The Odd Couple. I watch mostly while I work online on my other PC. Hope you are having a great weekend.

lunaticdiaries You would be surprised how much we have in common. Life has many ups and downs. There is so much pleasure to be found. With that joy don't look outside of yourself but deep inside to a love so strong and deep it makes everything happen. Television is fun but not to be used as an escape for real life. It is an addition too. One more way to bring out the love we share. Always learning and loving the smallest things about each other. Thank you for reading and sharing. I can't wait to read all the wonderful stories you write this year. Have a wonderful day enjoying the warmer weather.
