    Default Heeheehee - I Have TV!

    After 8 months of watching bad reception telly and barely getting even the analogue channels via the rabbit ears, I bit the bullet yesterday and called the local bloke to come fix the antenna. I'd had him out 5 years ago when I first moved in, then a couple of years later he'd stopped to help me catch a couple of stray dogs. Yesterday I called him and said he'd met me a couple of times and I had to laugh when he said "oh, are you the dog lady?"...yep that's me!

    With some trepidation I waited for him this morning worrying about how much it was going to cost. He got up on the roof to find the cable was pretty much ripped through, held together by a thread of wire. So new cable, new splitter box, tidied up a few other bits and pieces. Cost..$140! Woohoo!

    THEN, I was telling how I'd dinged the back of the car a few months back which caused the boot to stick and next thing he's there with his tools pulling the lock apart and he fixed it for me! He's also offered to put dark tint on the windows for me at cost so the dogs can be more comfortable when I have to transport them!

    He was here for over 2 hours, and it was a gab-fest!

    It's made my day, was thinking it was about time something nice happened to me...thank you John, you're a top bloke! He even put up with all the doggy cuddles...not sure who enjoyed them more, him or the dogs!

    *Sigh*...sadly not Boh and AF, shame coz he's a lovely bloke! He's very supportive of rescue and said he'd help keep costs down for me because he'd rather the money went towards the dogs and horses.

    He's also given me a recommendation for a good mechanic!...and before you ask, he's an old bloke!

    Make him a cup of tea & lock him in a room. I'll be right up to get him. You can never have too many handymen around the place.
