Call Sony and the customer service people don't know what that flashing light means, but suggest that I unplug the set from the power outlet. Yeah. It's a large set, perfectly fit into a huge display unit and I'm alone, with my canine helpers. Eventually, I was able to move the tv, squish myself behind it, and unplug it. I plugged it back in, following the instructions of Sony and it worked!! For that day.

The long and the Sony of it is that we need a service guy to come and take a look. Maybe they will have an authorized service outfit for me to call tomorrow. Don't know how long it will take to actually get service.
The good news is that for once, we bought the extended warrantee. If they can't fix the set, they get to buy us a new one. And they don't make our (less than two year old) model any more.

The bad news is, it took me 2 hours to get the set turned on last time, so it's not going off until the service man comes out. It's very weird waking up to the glow of the Weather Channel at 4 AM. However, if any of you know Stud Muffin, you'd understand how ugly it could get if he didn't get to watch tv after work or... *gasp*... FOOTBALL!
And you knew that more dogs were in the works! This is
All Pork Wiener!
With removable pig nose!
His eyes aren't really crooked, he's just a little dazed from all the coffee!
This collection is getting quite large, so I'm thinking about listing them on Etsy sometime soon. I'm also working (read: thinking inside my pea-sized brain) about some other gift collections to list there before Christmas. Mostly, I think about it while pulling weeds to distract myself from the endless nature of the weed-pulling project!!
Other than that, I have been noticing the season changing a bit. The mornings are cool, some of the leaves are starting to turn color, and flocks of geese have flown by, much to the delight of the dogs! Oh, and no more armadillo sightings!! Yeah!!
