The Dean's Class Retreat

Phillip and I recently helped plan a retreat for our Sunday School class (The Dean's Class). We had the event this past weekend and I thought I would share some photos with y'all.

Life with Cable

What do you get when you try to order cable for the start of college football season?

  • 6 phone conversations with the cable company
  • 1 complete cable outage in the span of 2 days
  • 2 visits from cable men (1 was late so we got a $20 credit to our account. Aren't you proud Kyle Bethancourt?)
  • 3 resettings of the cable box
  • 1 1/2 total hours on hold on the phone
  • A few strong words from me to the customer service ladies, nothing mean just effective
  • 1 visit from an official cable van
  • And finally 2 exasperated people
This is the first time in our marriage that we have had cable TV! I am happy to report that the new cable has been fun, especially with the DVR recorder. So now the party is at our place. We even rearranged the living room furniture: one part due to the cable hookup another part due to the home decorating TV I can now enjoy. Also, my 2 new favorites on the free digital music channels that we receive are hands down: Bluegrass and Americana. Bluegrass because it is the official music of this state and it's just a lot of good 'ol boys who can get with it. Americana because it's a little more earthy and you can hear Robert Earl Keen, Lyle Lovett, and Jerry Jeff Walker all in one place! Whoop to that and the Fightin Texas Aggies being 2-0.
