Wii got friends in [high] places!

Okay so this is just a short little "plug" post until I can get my camera hooked up to the computer and post some pictures of my two snow angels.

Wii (when I say we - I really mean Keith) have a number of different gaming systems. Some we've had for a long time (like before Samantha was born) and others not so long, like not even a year. Wii decided for our anniversary this last year to purchase a Nintendo Wii. Now this is probably the third No Frendo (named by Keith's friend Ben) system we have purchased. We love it and it is very fun for the whole family. Price comparison wise - it's a lot cheaper than some of the other systems out there. But we started having some issues right away with it. They didn't happen all the time but intermittently it just wouldn't work. Then our nephew dropped it on the ground and so it started having more issues. Then Savanah dropped it on the ground from about 6 ft up. Needless to say, Wii didn't want to play with us anymore. So I called the 800 # hoping that it wouldn't cost very much to get it fixed. Dude on the phone says - hey you're calling from WA. I say yeah. He says we are located in Redmond and have a 24 hour repair service if you drop it off. So I made a trip up to Redmond, dropped the Wii off and they shipped us a brand new Wii the next day because ours wasn't repairable - FOR FREE!!! That's right folks, FREE Wii!!!! How exciting and amazing is that? I know - it's unbelievable!
So if anyone is looking into a video game system - go with the No Frendo Wii! You'll be glad ya did!

Oh, that is SUCH a great story! Just another reason to get a Wii. (Wii are really looking forward to playing the Wii with you whenever wii are together again! Maybe if I say Wii every time I mean "we", wii will get a Wii!)

Seth, there might be a hint or two in that last comment by JA. Of course, wii will gladly share our Wii whenever possible. Like when wii come down to visit you or when wii have you come up and visit us!!!!
P.S. Savanah got a Hannah Montana Wii game - I know you are just dying to play it!!!

I don't get that Anah says that Cory in the House is her favorite TV show. I would certainly have guessed either Hannah Montana or Full House.
I feel bad wii didn't plug the Montana game in on Sunday. I think it will probably be AWESOME.

Rene', I want you to know that I wasn't the one who gave up your son as the culprit - I do have two nephews you know. But it still worked after Ro dropped it. After Anah dropped it - no worky, no likey. We don't blame "the boy".
