Who Screwed Up the Travel Channel?

Sometimes on a rainy day, I like to sit and ponder the deeper meanings of life. 

  • Who screwed up the Travel Channel? Why are there no "travel" shows on the Travel Channel? Slimey poker games and other silly non-travel fluff have replaced interesting and colorful travel programs for years now. And whatever happened to Samantha Brown? I always enjoyed her perky travel get-aways.
  •  When it's pouring rain outside, why don't my outdoor potted plants get wet? It can be raining more furious than a monsoon in Mexico and yet my container flowers remain dry as a Baptist revival in southern Georgia. As a result, I have to hand-water the potted plants sometimes as much as twice a day....even on a wet, soppy, rainy afternoon.
  •  And speaking of flowers. Why do my neighbor's flowers across the street ALWAYS look bigger, healthier and more colorful than mine? We both planted similar type flowers the very same week. But after two weeks, hers are huge and mine are....wishing they could join the garden party across the street.
  • Why don't I ever win a beauty make-over? Could it be I'm already too beautiful...or is it because my name is never submitted?
  • Why does my husband, after unloading groceries into the car, push the shopping cart half mile back to inside the store, in the snow and yet NEVER unload our dishwasher in the morning?
  •  Why am I the only nitwit who cannot figure out Pinterest?
  • Why am I so jealous of that female voice on our GPS (who sounds exactly like  former news anchor Connie Chung)...that I insist my husband turn down the volume when he's driving? Seriously!  What is wrong with me?
  •  Why can't I figure out how to secure my own grandson safely into his car seat when he can strap himself into it in less than a minute?
  • Why does my bucket list have a hole in it? No wonder I haven't accomplished anything.
  • Why does the thought of a D.Q Peanut Buster Parfait torment me all summer long?
  •  If 60 is the new an afternoon nap the new foreplay?

Great post and thoughtful list of truly mind-bending questions - especially liked the last one.

I have no answers, but I enjoy the questions! And I know what you mean about those peanut buster parfaits!

No answers for any of the above....but I did have an odd little crush on Samantha Brown. I too, don't know where she went.

I have the same complaint with the History and Biography channels. Everything but...

You can change the voice on the GPS. Go to the settings.

"Why does my bucket list have a hole in it?"

Now THERE's a question! Funny how stuff I once longed to do seems silly and stupid now that I'm older and wiser. (Okay, older. The wiser part is debateable.)

You hit the nail on the head. Too bad I don't have answers for you.

You'd best find something to plug that hole!

I'm with you about the Travel Channel. I used to love watching Samantha Brown. I swear, sometimes change is NOT good.

Applause! I was thinking much the same thing as I looked at the offerings on the Science Channel... Why are there a bunch of shows about "ancient aliens"?
