The stereo adventure. LOL

Goodmorning everybody!

Jan, courageous as ever, (grin grin!!!) did start to install the"new"stereo. I hate things like that, it always makes in a few minutes such a mess in a room, you know, taking out the old stuff, put away on a couch and the floor, to be able to turn the closet where it is having it's place, etc.
So I asked him if he needed any help from(I hoped he would say "no"), but I could give him a little hand with removing the stuff and then I took off, doing some shopping and really taking my time for it.!!
As I finally came home again, oh wonder, the stereo was installed, only.................................not a single sound came out of it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am not good at those things, but together with Jan we checked all the connections, and I couldn;t find anything weird, so Jan was completely puzzled. I must say, that I am completely dedicated to a very SIMPLE kind of stereo, just a button for off and on, a button for searching  the radio stations, perhaps with a memory button, to easy get the ones you like, some possibilities to get the right sound mix(bass and higher tones level), etc. and not all kind of extras.
Why do they have to make things sometimes so complicated, with all kinds of buttons and install memories and whatever, a lot of things a simple human being like for instance ME, never uses that! Now it might help, if you have a manual or simple instruction booklet with it, which we didn;t have!
Can you guess what happened after some time??????
YEAH WE PUT BACK THE OLD ONE, CAUSE THAT WORKED!!  The only thing that we kept and changed was the cd player. LOL!!!!
Probably we just overlooked some little button or had a connection not at the right place, but for the moment we can play music on a turn table, radio, cd player and tapes, on easy to handle stuff. The one from Jan's brother will be put away for a while and when one day Rob will visit us, may be he can check it out and get the other thing working. Jan was rather pissed off, cause he couldn;t understand what he might have done wrong, his remark after the whole operation was: "Why aren't these things working with us the easy way? You know, plug in some connections, which isn;t too hard, and you turn the thing on and it works? We ALWAYS have trouble, there must be hanging a spell above our heads!"
Okay, this was............. the stereo, wheeeeee!!!
 I can laugh about this, well, as long as we can play some music if we want, all okay with me.

We still have really nice weather, it seems to stay a bit this way the next few days, only temperature may go down a bit, well, as long as it is staying around 60 F with sunshine and not much wind we have no reason to complain yet.!  Although the days are shortening, it makes a difference when the sun is shining at the time you wake up. I don;t like it too much to wake up in the morning and it still is dark outside, it seems, as if it makes it harder to really wake up LOL!


There is a new download at our forum again, a new part of the weekly download of the Vintage Halloween. This one will be from Snowy .Don;t forget to collect it.
Today I have a little fantasy kit for you again. Yes, can;t help it, just love to make fantasy things with fairies and such. Is it because I still have somewhere in my systems a child's soul and mind? You know what? I am happy with it. The kit is named "Fairies love Autumn too". Make some nice things with it!!
And have a wonderful weekend!

You have me grinning here listening to you talk of setting up the new stereo. I am the same way. I don't know how to manage all the buttons on my TV/DVD setup, and I can't upgrade my cell phone. I only know how to make calls and answer calls on the phone. The new phones are so busy, that I get confused. I need to go back to school to learn how to make a phone call on them. I guess I just like things to be simpler.

Ah well, you have a great day. I hope your Autumn weather lasts a while. Hugs, Edna B.

Oh Kyra, I feel the same about setting up these things. Why can't they make them Plug & Play? to put up a tv now is such a drama, but at least you do have music the old one is not broken, thanks for the Faries love Fall kit, hugs

Good morning Kyra:)
I did make it back.LOL I am hurrying through this morning but wanted to say Hi before I get started on the rest of my day.:)
I know what you mean about stereos and all the gadgets and wires.Fortunately Jim is able to fix most anything like that and when he has trouble..we call our son Robby.:)
I prolly would have used the old stereo again too.LOL I agree..why can't they make things more simple? I can remember when they only had three channels to choose from on TV oh..and a UHF channel if you had the proper antenna.hehe Telling my age here.:)
Right now..it's the four remotes we need in order to run the systems we have.Click the button on top of the tv..if you want to listen to the stereo...click it another time for the vcr and another time for the TV..then make sure you click the remote so you can get the picture to show up on the right thing on the TV.I didn't think I would ever get it straight in my head.LOL
Hope you have a wonderful day!!

Hugs,
Valinda
