Blog Dare Day 8 - Too much TV : Sometimes

There are a few television shows that I really enjoy watching. My viewing habits have changed a lot over the years, but I still love General Hospital. My teen years were spent watching the adventures of Luke and Laura. I loved watching the crazy Ice Princess caper and when Robert Scorpio came on the seen. I loved all the love in the afternoon...and even have two copies of the 45rpm record of General Hospi-tale. TV was fun then...I dreamer about joining them on their escapades. OH the memories.

Television has changed now. The topics are not as fun anymore. I find myself watching Criminal Minds, CSI and NCIS. Crime dramas seem to draw my attention, TruTV calls me and reality shows are oft watched as well. I like having to use my mind and piece together evidence to figure out "Who done it." Maybe this has de-sensitized me...maybe that is why we watch less and less...

My family can agree on one thing...watching sports. We are thankful that we have more options for football games. It is a bonding activity here. Maybe I should look for more sports to watch, or maybe I need to turn off the TV and just enjoy the quiet...what would you choose?
