Black Friday Bargain

Gustavo (that's our car's name) can go no bigger.
Even though I don't really believe in all the madness, we caved to the pressure of Black Friday and bought a TV for the living room.  Technically, we got it Thursday, so we are better than most Black Friday shoppers.

I did extensive research and decided to get what many sources were calling one of the best deals this year, a 60" LED backlit smart TV.  My dad and I trekked to Walmart and waited in line to score this giant Vizio.

We got it home, just barely (see above), and it's working great.  The only problem is we can't find our rabbit ears, so it looks like we're going to miss Sunday Morning tomorrow on CBS.  I still have no intention of paying for cable or satellite.

It is sitting on our old dining table right now.  Hopefully we will come up with a permanent place for it soon.

The best part is, I was able to hook it up to my speakers using a fiber optic cable and the sound is amazing.
The worst part is I now have something in my house worth stealing, so I'm going to be paranoid about locking up.  I'm going to have to remember to start closing the back door when we leave too.


  1. So you're saying you don't close the back door...

    1. It's actually a trap. I have a honey badger stationed there.

  2. Oh good! Im glad you guys went with a larger screen. Nothing worse than getting a screen thats too small. Regardless of whats on, you'll glare at it wishing you had forked over a few more dollars for the larger one. Since Andy is so handy, you may want to consider mounting it to the wall and building a wooden frame for it. My cousin does it for his TVs and it makes the TV look like art. I dig it.
