The Price is STILL Right

Phillip had a little surgery on his wrist yesterday (I guess it was only 'little' because it wasn't my wrist!) so I had several hours to sit in a waiting room knitting and watching something on tv besides Dora or Backyardigans.

So while knitting and waiting, The Price Is Right came on the six tvs in the waiting room. I'm not a huge fan of the show, but used to watch it every now and then when we had the cheap cable.

I've not watched it since Bob Barker retired. I was really skeptical thinking they probably should have just ended the show when he left instead of trying to replace him.

Well I must say, I was wrong. And if you know know how hard it is for me to say that!

Drew Carey was fabulous! He was just so real...jumping up and down with the contestants that won and chuckling at the ones who bid $1199 right after the person before them bid $1200. I also love that he calls the models by name.

Hmmm, another show to add to the dvr....just what I need!

I am a long time fan of Drew Carey. Not so sure about the Price Is Right.

Hope Phil is doing well. Is he a whiner? or Macho Man?

The Price is Right comes on when I'm fixing lunch for the kids, my oldest has to be at preschool at noon. I let them watch it and they were upset when Bob retired. AJ keeps asking when the old guy will be back. I like that he calls the models by name and cracks jokes at some of the goofy prize combos.
