Up on the Housetop

I was going to post a picture of PR putting up his new TV antenna on the roof, but he hasn't done it yet. Apparently the rocking chair/receiver in the front yard is doing a pretty good job, so "if it ain't broke, don't fix it"...

Seriously, we are canceling the cable because we'll be able to get plenty of "local" stations with the antenna (the rocking chair-rig was PR's way of testing his new acquisition). He called a week ago to cancel the cable, and since the work order fell through the cracks we've had a week of free cable. Hence, no picture of PR on the roof... yet.

    I would never have guessed what the rocking chair apparatus was for.

    I won! Do I get a prize?

    We don't have cable either, we get:
    Ch 2 -- NBC
    Ch 3 -- CBS College Station
    Ch 8 -- PBS
    Ch 11 - CBS Houston
    Ch 13 - ABC
    Ch 14 - TBN
    Ch 20 - Fox
    Ch 39 - CW Ch 45 - Uni
    Ch 47 - Tel - Spanish
    Ch 49 - ION - Spanish
    Ch 51 - Ind
    Ch 55 - Ind
    Ch 61 - Raza - Spanish
    Ch 67 - TF

    Houston has several others, low power stations, that we can't pick up from up here.

    We look at the schedules but just don't see much else we want to watch.
    Our TV won't tune them in, but we have digital over-the-air stations too.

    What is my prize?

    I think there's usually not much worth watching whether you have 2 channels or 200! The NBA finals was only worth watching for the HD though.
