Last night I tempted fate.
Seriously, I came close to disaster but I survived.
What did I do?
I lifted a 99 lb TV by myself with a back that's gone "BOING" twice in the past and will do so again. (According to the docs it's not "if" but "when" I'll pinch my nerve again.)
However, I did it. The TV is on its new stand. I've ordered cable. There's a little more than a month before pre-season football and I'm in the last 9 weeks of my course work for Grad Degree II. Life is pretty good right now.
