503. She said it was on Channel 6

A friend called to tell me there was a special on Channel 6 she thought I'd like to see. I was on the phone at the time with another friend so her call went to voice mail. She said "they're doing a Michael Jackson special on Channel 6; if you are up, turn it on."

As I said, I was up, and on the phone. But as for turning on the special, that wasn't going to happen. As I've written before, I do not watch TV. I don't subscribe to cable - the truth is I don't have a TV. Well, there is a very small one with rabbit-ears on a shelf out in the garage. I thought my friend Keith was going to take it with him to California, but he didn't. There was one, a large modern one - cable ready and everything, in the living room until, oddly enough, yesterday when I gave it away to someone who would watch it. I haven't turned it on in six months. It was here when I moved in. I do know it is in perfect working condition as long as one has one of those adapters every one needs if they don't have cable.

That is, unless they are like me and they don't have cable because they don't do TV.

And as for being on Channel 6 - when I gave up TV, there was no Channel 6. We had 3, 11, 15, 32, 41, and 68. I suppose we still do. It's time for bed, a time to read a little and then to sleep, perchance to dream.
