We actually bought a HDTV, it is a Panasonic Plasma TV. After much moaning and groaning, thinking and rethinking, contemplating and looking at various TV's; we bought it; we also got a "free" Blu-Ray player with it.

This purchase was really pretty frivolous. Our old 27" CRT TV worked OK & we don't really watch that much TV anyhow. But we "deserve" (in the same sense that the people that lawyers get money for their pain or injuries do) to pamper ourselves a little; as my kids would tell you, I am cheap & did not spend more than we made for all the years they were with us. We did give them money for most of college but there were few frills when they were growing up.

“All things are cheap to the saving, dear to the wasteful” Benjamin Franklin

“Always laugh when you can. It is cheap medicine.” Lord Byron {Maybe someone should tell P.O.}

“I buy expensive suits. They just look cheap on me.” Warren Buffett

“I can't stand cheap people. It makes me real mad when someone says something like, "Hey, when are you going to pay me that $100 you owe me?" or "Do you have that $50 you borrowed?" Man, quit being so cheap!” Jack Handy

HDTV (abbreviation) high-definition television, using more lines per frame to give a sharper image than a conventional television

  1. Well, I think Logo's going to be disappointed that we have no reason to check on "Grand-dad's TV" anymore. I suppose we'll probably do it anyway...
