Tragedy Averted


Standing in the kitchen, I saw this....   
 and out came the zooooooommm lens and
Soooooooooooooo I walked around the pool to get a closer view and you know The Rest Of The Story...


Several days ago, I heard a ROARRRRR in the living room...


Bob just came in from the garage and flipped on TV to watch the History channel until dinner, which is his daily thing to do. both channel 25 and 1125 which is basic and digital HD, same channels, were GONE gone off my TV not even in the pick list, he was ROARING and acting like we had been attacked by aliens.

"the History Channel is GONE! where is the HISTORY CHANNEL?"

I dialed 611, our cable provider answered, I said we have an emergency.. the History Channel is gone.... I was laughing, he started laughing and said they moved it to 54 and 1154... ask him to see if he has it. He did, I thanked the guy and said you have averted a tragedy... I could hear him laughing when I hung up




Typhoon Haiyan Slams Philippines, 10,000 feared dead.

Very pretty! My roses are still blooming, even after a couple of 30ish degree nights. Beautiful to see the splash of color.

Blackberry Lane said...

Beautiful photos. I can only imagine how I would feel if HGTV was gone from my channel!!!

From the Kitchen said...

I'd be roaring to find a favorite channel gone! Love the hibiscus.

Best,
Bonnie

Miss Debbie said...

Pretty flowers and funny story! The cable company should have told you.It's not good for your guy to have that kind of shock!! :-)

GOOSE said...

Hahhaha. Glad it's back to normal for Bob. Beautiful flowers.
Blessings,

Last year it was very odd for us to see Hibiscus blooming all year round. BTW you will like Fotor as it has tons of effects. Play around with it and let us know. Happy Sunday. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

Kathy said...

Like a lot of other guys, I take it Bob doesn't know how to dial a phone.

Cranberry Morning said...

That is an absolutely gorgeous hibiscus! And I'm with Bob - if we had cable, it would be only to get the History Channel!

Madi and Mom said...

Bob Appleseed should be thankful he has a wife who keeps her cool in emergency situations!
Laughing in Raleigh

Betsy Adams said...

Oh the crazy tragedies in our lives... It's the little things that we get so upset about. We seem to be able to handle the big problems much better than we do the little ones...

I thought you were going to say that you fell in the pool!!!!!!! ha ha

Great photos.
Hugs,
Betsy

it is good to be able to laugh at ourselves.

Willow said...

Too funny ...my hubs would be having a royal melt down if that happened to the history channel too .lol

Very Pretty Hibiscus !

Deb said...

my Hubby watches the history channel too...must be a guy thing...great photos of your pretty flowers...

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Enjoyed your pictures. It is amazing how attached we get to our cable channels and I know exactly how he felt!

Inger said...

I'm so glad to hear you keep your cool in emergency situations. I saw your note about the typhoon. I had no idea, I guess haven't watched TV or read the news online. That's just terrible. I have blogger friends there and know many who must have relatives living there. I have to find out more.

rottrover said...

That happened here when our satellite company could not negotiate with the local station that shows Two and a Half Men! There was much roaring! Thankfully, they were able to settle!!. Love the hibs this morning :-)

Susannah said...

Thank you, Sandra! Jim loves the History Channel and watches it a lot. You have stopped a strange howling that would have happened here. I will check it out for the old boy!

Your hibiscus is stunningly gorgeous. I need to follow through with my wishes and get a hibiscus bush. Three houses away from us has a bright red one in their front yard. Oh..it is beauty.

Thanks for the letting us in on the emergency phone call. Funnier than heck! I am still laughing
!!!

Snapper II said...

That is no laughing matter. Serious and un explained disappearance's should go out to cell phone alert.
LOL

Mersad said...

Thankfully there were no further problems. :) My dad is equally easily disturbed when it comes to his sports channels.

SweetMarie said...

Love your flowers! They're my favorite color. :)
We no longer have cable. Hubby is starting to miss his sports. lol

Chatty Crone said...

Prayers for the people of the Philippines.
And thanks for the heads up on the History Channel - we will have that same problem here as well.

SquirrelQueen said...

Oh no, the case of the missing channels. I'm glad to hear the master sleuth, MadSnapper, was on the case and solved the mystery. Our cable company used to do that to us too. The satellite service has taken channels off a couple of times because they were at odds with the owners of the channel.

I love your beautiful flowers.

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Ha! I thought you must have fell in the pool. My hubby would die if his favorite channels went out. He's as addicted to it as I am to my computer. :)

That is a beautiful flower!

George said...

I'm glad that a major crisis was averted, although I think it is unusual that they would move the History channel without telling you.

Ramakrishnan Ramanathan said...

Pretty red flowers and amusing anecdote !

Ann said...

not much color out my window any more so I love looking at yours.
That is so annoying when they switch locations of a channel. You would think they would flash something across the screen for a few day letting people know it's going to happen

EG CameraGirl said...

Makes me wonder why the cable people insist on changing everything around. They could at least warn people. ;)

magscorner said...

Glad Bob found the History channel so you don't have a continuous roar at your home. lol Beautiful plant...hibiscus? Hugs

DawnTreader said...

Too funny about the History Channel :) And your flowers are beautiful!

Rose said...

We have this kind of tragedy often enough...only it is not just a simple thing of them changing the channel...we lose all our channels. Always right when we are really watching something....

Eva Ason said...

Very pretty flowers :) I'm glad the History channel only moved place.

Betty Manousos said...

such beautiful flowers! too funny about the history channel.
thoughts and prayers for the people of the Philippines.
