Survivor Season 46


I know. I KNOW. Few of you care one whit about Survivor let alone read about it here. But yesterday’s (Wednesday March the 6th) episode was classic.

We had two (not one but TWO) “First Ever in 23 Years of Survivor viewing.”

First Ever!! Surely some of you have a favorite show. A sporting event you are really, REALLY, looking forward to watching. For the  first time EVER, our eagerly anticipated Survivor episode was suddenly “interrupted” by our local CBS Television network. Right smack dab during the beginning of our Survivor episode came this announcement.. “We interrupt this program to bring you the latest news about the local murder by beating of teenager Preston Lord .. and the indictment of four suspects..” And it went on, and it went on, and it continued to go on for perhaps 15 minutes.

Acceptance does NOT MEAN approval. What is IS. And Patti and I were powerless to do anything. Yes I called our local Television Channel and was 100% totally unable to speak to anyone to express my vote to get back to Survivor!

Gullible  .. When Oh When Does It Get Easier??

First Ever!! Now this one is fun. The Immunity Challenge was so long and so difficult that during the Immunity Challenge the Survivor editors inserted a full commercial break. 

It was a Hoot. It was a Holler.

Oh By The Way 

This afternoon (Wednesday March 6th) I had a 3:40pm appointment with my Mayo Clinic primary care Doctor. The appointment went until “around” 4:40pm when my doctor said.. “I want you to have a blood draw and a chest x-ray.” I said.. “Doctor we are leaving Phoenix tomorrow!” He smiled and said.. “I have already put in the order. You can do it NOW!”

So off to the lab I went. Sure enough! I had a blood draw and a series of chest x-rays and was out just at 5pm when they close for the day!

What an organization the Mayo Clinic is!!

    Remember this? “On November 17, 1968, Heidi unexpectedly became part of sports vernacular when East Coast viewers suddenly lost the NBC broadcast of Pro Football Hall of Famer Joe Namath’s Jets trying to hold off a Raiders fourth-quarter comeback. ”

    The network cut off the end of the football game to start Heidi at its regularly scheduled time.

    And, the long run of things, the death of a teenager outweighs any TV program.

      Do I remember The Heidi Game? Yes Oh Yes! I was tuned in on the West Coast. The Raiders scored two touchdowns in the final minute of the game to win it. Smiling.. Cap

    Just to paraphrase….”We are powerless over people, places and things…..”.
    I believe that even applies to social media, television, and Hollywood. The salvation to us is truly that we don’t have to like it…yet our lives are enriched when we quickly accept it.
    Safe travels back up the desert highways. With all of the recent rains have you viewed any flowering desert flora and fauna?
    Love you both so very much!

      Michael, recent rains include the torrential downpour we encountered Thursday coming from Phoenix back to Lake Havasu City. So no we didn’t see any flowering desert flora. Smiles Michael. Cap and Patti

    Safe travels back to Lake Havasu! Enjoy the beautiful views! Glad you enjoyed the later parts of survivor! Yep, acceptance does not mean we have to like it, that was a rough one to learn. Much love to you both! ❤️

      Thanks Ginny. Our return from Phoenix to Lake Havasu City was very challenging. We encountered an absolutely torrential rain storm that was easily one of the worst, most severe rain storms I have ever in this lifetime encountered. All is well that ends well and by the time we got home it was sunny skies and very pleasant. Cap and Patti
