The Vacation Chronicles Day 20

When I first accepted this house/pet sitting gig 20 days ago I had forgotten that this household doesn't watch television. This means no cable, antenna or other device to make TV programing accessible. EEEEKKKK!!!! How will I survive! However, there is a TV, a DVD player and a VCR. I haven't been able to watch any DVDs because Daniel isn't here to operate it for me! No oatmeal either! Anyway, back to the subject at hand. I decided to gather up a bunch of tapes that I had never viewed or hadn't watched in a long time. No Veggie Tales, Star Wars, Thomas the train, Lost in Space or Mr. Ed videos! First I picked out a few here, then went and got some from my house and found a few at Savers. Then I proceeded to set up what I like to call my "Home Theatre on a Budget." I turned the recliner to face the TV. Lined up the movies I had acquired on the little hutch thingy and arranged the remotes(although I don't use them)in their own row on the thingy. So far I have watched:
Shadowlands-slow moving but good
The Longest Day-2 tapes which turned into a 3 evening extravaganza
Sense and Sensibility-BORING, I turned it off after about 15 minutes
Sounder-a sad, sad movie
Tea for Two-kinda silly but fun
I'll Cry Tomorrow-true story about someone I've never heard of
Rio Lobo-typical John Wayne movie
The River-pretty good movie

Tonight I think I am going to start watching Gettysburg, Its a 2 tape-er so it will take at least 2 evenings to watch. But first I have to get Marmalade to relinquish the chair! Oh; I really haven't missed TV programming!
