Our New Acquisition

Most holiday seasons when the kids ask us what we would like, we don’t have a clue.  But this year, I had an idea.  Although we don’t spend a lot of time watching TV, we do miss some great shows. So, I suggested they give us a DVR. 

My amazing daughter-in-law Katrina did all the research and recommended Tivo. But when she told us she had ordered the lifetime guarantee package, meaning you pay up front rather than monthly, I was skeptical. 

“What’s a lifetime guarantee worth at our age?  Can we pass it on to our children?” I wondered. When I pushed back, she said, “Well, you only have to use it for three-and-a-half years to break even as compared to the monthly-pay plan.  After that, it’s like free.”

“OK,” I said.  I turned to Peter and announced,  “Honey, this means I need you to stick around for at least three-and-a-half more years.

We have to get our money’s worth!”

We bought our TIVO within 2 years of its introduction. We bought it outright for $250.00 and it still works. One of our best investments.
