TV Blogger Takes A Holiday

TV never stops. But stilltalkintv is going to take another rest for a few days.

I’m telling you this because after taking a few days off last week I got a few emailers asking me if I were sick.

Hey, even bloggers deserve a vacation.

Now I’m heading to a wedding in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, where I’m not even sure they have TV.

Okay, that’s just a joke.

Television is everywhere I go.

Last Sunday morning, I actually was taking in the beauty of St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York City. To my amazement, the homily by Timothy Dolan, the Archbishop of New York, included a television reference.

The Archbishop said he didn’t care much for television. But he had just returned from a vacation, saw an old episode of “Bonanza” and was able to weave the deaths of all the actors who starred in that TV classic into his sermon.

If you get some television criticism in church, I’m sure you can get it anywhere.

Even Wyoming. The point is I’m sure something will happen in Wyoming that will lead me to write about television after I return.

So stay tuned.

Actually, I’ve already learned that the weekend is a good time for a blogger to take off. The hits seem to peak on Wednesdays and Thursday and decline on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.

A buddy of mine used to run a test pattern on weekends rather than new blogs because so few people read them on weekends.

In any event, enjoy the weekend with the knowledge that I am so healthy that I am going to go whitewater rafting with my three children. Catch up on some old blogs. I’ll see you some time next week with more TV stories to tell.

Who knows? Maybe the person officiating the wedding will talk about that classic western, “Laramie,” set in Wyoming.
