The packaging sucks

"I don't know where they get these packaging designers from but the designers of this package didn't know what they were doing. I've had two sets delivered and both times the package arrived with the hinge assembly that is inside broken. The discs are damaged. There are better ways to package multiple DVDs."

"Today would be my father's 91st birthday if he were still alive. I've been thinking about him lately and wanted to honor him today. I'm doing that through Andy Griffith and "Matlock--the First Season." You see, Matlock was my father's absolutely favorite television show. I cannot say I ever watched it. I was long gone from home when he was a faithful viewer. My brother used to tell me not to go see Dad if Matlock was on.
My mother is one to say how annoyed she is if she is disturbed. Not my father. He was a quiet, unassuming man, an alcoholic, but a working alcoholic, who never missed a day of work, not even when he was sick. That still astonishes me. If one did interrupt his show, he would never let on for a minute that you had (I didn't--I followed my brother's advice. We all have our favorite things.)
I adored Andy Griffith and "The Andy Griffith Show," but never saw "Matlock." Maybe I need to, just to understand my father a little more. In his own way, he was a good man. Like Andy Griffith, like Matlock, but in a different way. Happy birthday, Daddy!"
