the dying television

i think the television just died ... the first tv that was out here used to take about 3 hours to warm up ... so i'd turn it on at 3am and by 6am i could watch the news ... that got old fast, and cost a lot of electricity ... so [the rancher's wife] gave me another tv to bring out here ... but then something happened to the digital receiver ... and i could only get one channel ...

i found that if i dropped the receiver box a bunch of times and let it kind of rattle around that the tv would first display a "weak signal" message and then flick on ... but you still couldn't change the channel ...

well, now this morning, the installation guide is displayed on the screen and the ok button will not work on the remote ... so, i am stuck with no way to click next page to progress the installation ... hahahha ...

the dying television.
