I'm a native Texan, lived there 62 years of my life and hated every minute of every summer. That's a lot of hating. In 2004 I retired and we moved to Oregon. Living in the Pacific Northwest is paradise to me. Our vet once told me when God retires it will be to Oregon.
Summers are wonderful here compared to Texas summers. We're in the middle of a 3 or 4 day heat wave with temps in the 90s, to near 100. Those don't happen all that often but certainly send me scurrying for a cool place to hide.
Tomorrow will again be a warm day but then the next 10 days will be in the 60s and 70s. Oh how I love this place.
I hate hot summers!!
We probably have the quietest house around and I like it that way.
Many years ago we reached a compromise (we do a lot of that), Bob wears ear phones to listen to TV. I've never watched TV because I'm always reading books and find it very distracting if I'm in a room where a TV is on and I particularly don't like loud TVs.
We bought Bob a nice set of wireless head phones and we've both been very happy with the arrangement. It's been long enough that he's had two or three sets but he always goes back to the original ones. I guess they just feel better.
In the last year or so I've begun listening to audio books and I use ear buds. We can occupy the same room because he wears headphones and I wear ear buds. Total silence in the room.
We would have very different tastes in TV shows anyway. Bob is also a flipper. I think men are genetically disposed to channel surfing.
Bob's twin brother used to have their TV at ear drum bursting level. His wife complained bitterly but she never did anything to make the problem more tolerable. I finally decided she probably liked her situation or she would have done something to correct it. I'm not one to suffer such things in silence.
Who controls the TV in your house? Do you agree of the shows you watch?
