YeS!!!! Our old TV died so we were watching on a 26" tv. My bestfriend was at her neighbors who was getting a brand new HDTV installed and was going to give his "OLD" TV to the repair man. My bestfriend said "Whoa!" and advised that he give the TV to someone who "really" needed it and she suggested "ME!". He knows me, although not that I had an inferior TV, lol, an said, "Ah, yes, give it to Carolyn!".
We are so very thrilled and grateful! We offered any services he needed as we do bartering. He has a dining room table that needs a leg repaired so dh will buy the dowel and fix it this week.
Dreams really do come true!!!! Can you imagine how exciting it wil be to watch NASCAR races on a 60" TV? Dh is drooling over it and I can't get over how BIG it is!!!!:grball: What a great friend to think of me so quickly! She said the repair man was probably still cursing her, lol.
