I tried to get by with the postage stamp TV but broke down and went looking for a smart TV the same size as the LCD TV that failed. Due to cookies or whatever, Walmart sent us an email about a smart TV on sale. I had a Doc appointment and banking to do near there, so I went in. They do not sell the TV that was in the email, in Alaska. So after I got a manager to explain my options, he said if you are willing to take a display model with only a 90-day warranty and no box, he could give me a great deal on a Phillips 65 inch smart TV. He typed the TV info into a tablet and acted stunned to see the price $ 224. It printed out a new sale price label and he placed it on the TV. They even carried it out and put it in my old van.
After getting it on the TV stand at home, I realized it was a lot bigger than the one that failed. The picture is fantastic and it was easy to get connected to my router. It would be easy to be a couch potato with this setup.

Today was paying house insurance which is now $ 1688 for a year. I was told that home building inflation was the reason for the new higher cost. Grrr. Then I had insurance swapped from the Florida car to the Alaska van like I do each year. That is just one of those snowbird things.
Update 5-30-18: Paid Ak home tax $ 3033, Fl Cabana insurance $ 1463. Paid Ak gas & elect for a year.
It was a drizzly high 40s kind of day. I do have yard work to do but will wait for the mosquitos to hatch. That will make it even more fun.
