Smart TV Day

My two youngest helped me purchase my first flat-screen, HDTV today. They joked that our existing TVs were relics from so long ago only weird collectors would want them. So out to the curb went one, into my bedroom the other and into the living room came our lovely new flat-screen HDTV.

Basically I bought it for them, but I'm sure it will be very nice for me as well when I watch my favorits sports, politics, news and movies.

What I enjoyed most about the shopping process was how much fun the kids had. Dylan took the lead installing all the new equipment, assisted by Julia. Aidan had to work.

I just stood aside, amazed. This new generation has so many skills doing these technological things. I've become something of a relic myself.

But I'm happy to defer to them.

We also ordered a new pair of tough boots for Dylan. The ones I bought him in Montana last fall have fallen apart.
