So, we finally had enough of it. Again. We get fed up periodically and cancel our service, but this time it may be for keeps.
Television. We have a love/hate relationship with it.
So, we dumped the whole thing. Satellite, box, remote control, good shows, bad shows, and all.
And that could have been a very sad thing. Like Lent forever.
But, all is not lost.
We found a great alternative: Netflix. It's a deal, let me tell you. You choose on the website from among thousands of dvds; some you can watch online immediately, others you order and they arrive amazingly quickly in the mail; you watch your movies and return them in the envelope provided. As soon as they receive your returned movies, the Netflix elves send you the next dvds on your online queue. I'm sure you've heard of it. It's cool. Way cool. We've had our service since Holy Saturday, started watching dvds Easter Sunday afternoon, and we are in love. We can order documentaries to our hearts' content (=sigh=). We can access an almost inexhaustible online list of old movies (be still my heart!). And they even have Jimmy Neutron -- and old Bugs Bunny cartoons!
But, the main reason I'm telling you all this is that I'm working up to sharing a silly (yet strangely profound) little find. One of the movies we ordered first was an oldie but goodie called The Ghost Breakers, starring Bob Hope and Paulette Goddard ~ a good view from beginning to end, one that we remembered watching when the big boys were little boys. But, we forgot about the one Bob Hope zinger you can see below, and it's a honey. Check it out:
