A Strange Thing Happened........

Before we left on our "vacation", we bought a DVD recorder so we could copy old VHS tapes onto DVD to take with us. Well, that never happened :) When we got home, we signed up with Netflix because, well, there just isn't much on TV any more and we rarely see movies in the theater - Redmond's only one usually plays kid's movies and it's an hour to Bend. So, we watch our first couple of movies and it's pretty nice. Returned those and got 2 more. Put one in the player and settled down to enjoy a good movie - and we hear this loud - REALLY loud - POP!! And something flies across the room - the DVD - in pieces! The door to the tray is in the middle of the floor and the DVD is scattered. Then it started smoking!! OK - everyone I have told about this says: "no way" - but it really happened. It is a good thing that no one was sitting in line with the DVD pieces! Needless to say, we didn't watch a movie!
So, today, I took the player back to Costco, where we bought it. Told my story and the clerk said, "no way"!!! But, they refunded our money and we went and got another one - the same model and everything. We'll see what happens when we get our next movie. Stay tuned!
