I should have but after waiting so long for that one I just didn't have it in me, I probably broke it when I dropped it, but it all blew up in my face anyway...
I have bad luck with TV's, I was wiring an above center speaker in once and my brother handed me a glass of whiskey, I took a sip and went to hand it back and spilt it in the TV I was balancing over. Another time I went to toss a blanket into a basket we have near our fireplace, it opened up and caught the corner of the tv making it turn sideways on its mount, so that wasn't so bad until I walked over and went to pull the blanket off, the tv spun all the way around and fell from the mount, broke the tv and pushed the fireplace glass out of the gasket... What a mess that was, it was the original reason I was buying a new tv...

We just got a new 50 inch TV and I'm a nervous wreck worrying that my 6 year old grandson will either throw something or bump into it and knock it over. All the years raising our kids we never had a TV incident. (Knock on wood!)

If you have the tv on a table type stand and not hung on the wall, I would DEFINITELY buy a TV strap from either Quake hold or mono price amazon should have plenty to choose from and they are under from $9-20 so not much of an investment to protect your expensive TV and more importantly your grand children's safety... I have one on my the tv in my bedroom, it is ontop of a dresser and close to the edge, $15 and 5 minutes to install it was well worth the piece of mind...

DH was irritated by Beagle's nose prints on the window in the sun room. So what does he get out? Not the Windex. Not the vinegar/rubbing alcohol/water mix. Not the plain water. He brought out the Clorox Bleach spray!!! He sprayed it on the window right over the couch and carpet! I couldn't catch him in time.

I'm not very happy right now. There is now another area from which he's banned.

That may have been his diabolical plan all along!

Heh. You may be right, AB! He's already banned from the pots and pans drawer under the stove, the dishwasher, and the freezers, both in the fridge and the deep freezer.

And I just realized if DH comes up, um, missing, it might be an issue. Though I doubt any jury would convict me.

Are you going to need a character witness?
