My Friends Made Me an Addict

Everybody was doing it. They all did it and then they talked about doing it. They really liked it. They tried to convince me to do it too. More and more I would hear about how great it was. I avoided it, I stayed away from the people talking about it. I knew I would get hooked, I have that kind of personality.

My buddy Ben Leroy is the one who finally convinced me it was a good idea. He does it all the time. He loves it. And he still manages to function and be successful, Hell, he runs Bleak House Books just fine even though he's hooked. I finally broke down. I found a place on the internet and spent the money. It arrived in a plain brown package. But I wasn't going to do it alone.

SO I did it with my wife Ruth and our friend Libby, it was thier first time too. We did together and we loved it. And now, now we are all hooked. Thanks Ben, you bastard.

The Shield is already one of my all time favorite shows, and I've only seen eight episodes.
I knew I would love, but never watched on cable because I didn't want that weekly fix hanging over me. Good choice . Because only being able to see one at a time would be murder.

More later, disc three is loading in the player and the sun's not up yet....

The man speaks the truth. I have been forever altered by the experience. I have Season One and just ordered 3 and 4. There was no hesitation. This is great shit.

Glad I could be of service. I can't wait to talk to all of you once you get through the most recent stuff.
