Wanted: A New Doggy Sofa

As you might recall, I've entered every single VIZIO television give-away or contest I can find in order to get a new set for our upstairs living room. We currently watch TV on the 19" Sony set Stew bought as a college graduation gift to himself in 1991. The remote control no longer works on this set, plus the volume control is all jacked up. The volume is pretty much set to the highest level at all times. Luckily we subscribe to digital cable, which comes with a cable box and remote, so the TV remote control is no longer necessary. So, in anticipation of winning a new VIZIO flatscreen TV that will mount to the wall above our fireplace (minus all the crap on the mantel that would block view of the TV), I'm now in shopping mode for a new sofa. And since I was banished from sitting on the furniture a couple years ago, I want my own piece of furniture on which I can stretch out and rub my fat belly (like Stew does on his couch).

That said, I recently stumbled upon THIS link to the showrooms of DirectBuy New York - the #1 way to buy direct for your home. For example, home furnishing retail stores average a 43% gross margin on products sold due to excessive mark-ups. So, I've decided to stop buying retail and instead I'm joining the club. There are DirectBuy showrooms located throughout the United States, but I prefer the one's in New York. Again, find the nearest NY showroom by following the link HERE... And tell the folks at DirectBuy New York that Bogey sent ya!

About This Blog

Commentary from a stay-at-home dad on daily happenings and misadventures while helping raise a wonderful little girl. The goal is to employ wit, sarcasm and/or humor to make the blog pseudo-entertaining. Then again, setting goals never really worked for me, but maybe you'll chuckle anyway.

OUR FAMILY - Provides a brief bio on each family member.

THE SAHD CLUB - A rip-off of the letter written by the kids from the 1980's blockbuster hit, The Breakfast Club.
