AlphabeThursday - A is for Antenna

Beginning Round Nine of AlphabeThursday!  And I have a perfect word for our Letter A:   Antenna. 

Love this new poetry format: Piku
For the past few weeks, I’ve had the hardest time watching television.  You see, I only watch one channel:  OETA – the Oklahoma Educational Television Authority, which transmits from Oklahoma City.  I decided all I needed was my rooftop antenna.  I was set!  But I believe the last big wind storm blew my antenna “off course” and I’ve been getting horrible reception.   

So I went out and bought an indoor antenna.  
Which I couldn’t get to work properly… 

Luckily, Danny came over and redirected my antenna when he was cutting back the branches that were scraping my roof.  You know that sound, right?  (it’s very windy in Oklahoma and I didn’t need to damage the roof any more than need be!)   

This past weekend I watched The Train (1964), with Burt Lancaster on Saturday’s OETA Movie Club.   I’ve never seen it before.  The movie is based on a book called Le front de l’art by Rose Valland, who documented works of art that the Germans were trying to steal from France in World War II.  Kinda reminds me of a movie I’ve been wanting to see:  The Monuments Men,  just released on DVD.

Come by Ms. Jenny’s site … off on my tangent… 
and see what words were chosen by the AlphabeThursday gang for the Letter A.

I thought of the Monuments Men too as I was reading! It's on my must-see list! Nice of Danny to cut the branches and get the antenna situated properly. We got some rabbit ears when our cable company was in a fight with the network... a pain that I'm glad they worked out! But those silly rabbit ears are still by the TV....

I'm an antenna tv girl too! Mine's on the back post of my house so I can reach it when it gets blown off track!

Thank goodness you have a working antenna now!
Did you like the "old" movie?"
I've watched a couple old movies recently--All about Eve and Sunset boulevard. Both were excellent.
fun journal pages!

We loved the Monument Men, too!

But we have cable - ha!

One of the advantanges of living in the big city.

I forgot all about rabbit ear antennas until I read this!

I wonder if those will ever become collectables?

Thanks for an amazing little link for the letter "A".
