Hubby ventured out today to pick up a grocery order, 5 gallons of distilled water, a prescription and a package. The stops included Sam's Club, a local water dealer, Walgreen's and the Amazon Hub here at the apartment. All items were sanitized and put away as soon as he arrived back at the apartment. Hubby said, "It's just eerie out there". Very little traffic and very few people at any of the places he stopped. Most folks he saw were wearing masks. So there is that Covid-19 report from our little part of the world.
Unless a major catastrophe happens between now and 2:00 PM tomorrow, I will finally see a surgeon about repair of the hiatal sphincter. I am not getting hopes up for surgery any time soon as elective surgeries are on hold. Not sure I would want to be hospitalized at this time anyway. Well, until my breathing gets a bit fore affected by the reflux. Now there is that report on the condition my condition is in, yea, yea, oh yea. Yes, I have been listening to Kenny Rogers' music a lot lately.
The coax strung between Andy Antenna and TV needed to be longer to reach. Another length required to go from the connector that comes through the outdoor to indoor area needed a different connector. Thanks to all the Amazon workers out there that arrived today, Monday. Hubby was able to finish the hookup. The extra coax cut to length. The antenna even has a remotely controlled rotor to adjust the direction for improved reception. In addition, the reception is getting more channels. Old movies, a country music station and others I have seen from afar. Hubby has the remotes and I am not in need of them now. Maybe later.
Saturday with Robbie was when I setup the app up on my phone. While I was messing with the app on the phone, Robbie just started his daily vacuum. I had set it for 3 PM. I stopped it so I could continue the app setup. The app shows where the vacuum moves during the last use. The phone app can, also, be used as a controller. The Robbie-to-phone setup was a bit slow due to the technician, yours truly, being distracted repeatedly. Finally was successful. I setup a 6 AM vacuum time for the next morning. Robbie spent the remainder of the day charging and hibernating as the app calls it.
Evidently Sunday was a morning of rest for Robbie as I failed to save the time for vacuuming. I went ahead and let him do his thing. But first I made adjustments I had noticed would help make optimal floor coverage. Pulled dining chairs as an angle that could be maneuvered. Wrapped up pesky cords, Tucked the sofa's skirting up out of the way. Adjustments like that. I missed the table leafs under the bed so had to help Robbie out of there. I just let Robbie vacuum until needing a charge. Robbie had vacuumed the entire apartment, even under the bed and sofa twice before needing a charge. The dust bin had lots of debris but not so much as the last time.
Monday morning, today, I heard the vacuum start up at 6 AM. When I finally arose and came into the living area Robbie was not on the charger. He was not making a sound. I spent the next 15 minutes looking for Robbie. I finally turned to the remote and turned on the motor. Sure enough there he was hiding under my chair in a tangle of cords between the legs of my chair and little table. Before I walked to him to help he was free and heading for the charger! I checked the map of where he had vacuumed and the living/kitchen area had been completed. Except not.
Instructions call for the dust bin is to be cleaned after each use. The bin and filters are to be left open to dry. I have been faithfully cleaning after each use. I found the perfect place to put them. The window sill in our bedroom works just great. That's where I found them this morning. After I found Robbie hiding under my chair. I don't know if Robbie was hiding in shame because his dust pan was missing or. . . Was he playing hide and seek because he had just blown around the living room rearranging the dust.

A couple of views from my chair out the patio door on this rainy Monday. A cool front is predicted to push the clouds away so maybe some sun tomorrow for the doctor's office.
Ya'll stay safe out there in this world that is on loan to us. Peace, Janice
