Stuff got done, and where's the fire?

The usual breakfast at about 9:30
Put the VCR, cassette deck and phonograph in the car along with a bag of all the linens and hand towels which were on the rack in the bedroom. Also grabbed the blue tape and pink highlighter.

First stop: Alliance mobile homes office, which was almost empty (only one realtor and the receptionist) dropped off the  tape and pen.

Next stop: Goodwill trailer up Lawrence by the gas station. Dropped off the electronics and textiles. Forgot the orca.

Next stop: B of A ATM

Final stop: Target. Sodastream cartridge exchange, milk, egg nog, cherry tomatoes, turkey baloney. They don't carry scoopfree litter cartridges.**

Home, put stuff away, watched Dr. Phil until daily ride home came on. Killed the "one pass" for that quack.

On Tivo was Masked Singer which was tough this time. Down to the final 4. Patti LaBelle was unmasked - she did not bring her A game and was beat out fair and square twice. Most of the panelists IDed her correctly.

Spook spent the afternoon on the bed with the dolphin.

**Petco wants $6 to ship a single litterbox cartridge. Amazon only offers 3-packs or more, but the 3-pack is $15.60 each. So I ordered a 3-pack, though two of them will probably move with me.

Watched the last half of football. Dinner was kind of a FAIL. Year old beef stew from the freezer, over rye bread. Dry as a bone. Tasty, but dry. Still at least one meal left, next time I'll make gravy.

Chocolate cake for one was dessert.

Streamed for 45 minutes, several legit followers. Streamers who are looking to build their follower count, so I followed them. No troll.

No plans for tomorrow.

Putting it all together

After the usual breakfast Spook alerted me to noises from out front. Surprise - the Alliance worker were there to put the house across the street together.

Got my phone set for live streaming, put it on the selfie stand on the porch and watched & streamed. The phone battery was running low, so I grabbed an extension cord, a USB charger and a long USB cable and plugged in the phone, the stream didn't miss a beat.

Around 12:30 I put the headphones down, went inside and made lunch, then joined the daily drive home using the PC. Also monitored my stream.

Back on the porch by 3 pm, but I had missed the actual joining (watched it on my twitch page later). The halves come together at about 4 hours 10 minutes in.

And that took 6 hours altogether. They need to come back and finish. Lots more work to do.

Dinner was another try at beef stew, this time with gravy. It helped, but not enough. Texas toast helped too. Ice cream sandwich for dessert.

Floribama Shore was the first Tivo offering, it is a houseful of youngsters who get drunk and fight and shout and only one of them even approaches being eye candy. Unless you're female or gay. Two of the guys are attractive.

PTI was minus Tony. It's just not as good without both regular hosts.

Temptation Island is a walking contradiction. The script insists that the couples have been split up to help them grow. The MC insists that most of the participants have evolved into Better People™ but I don't see it. This episode spent almost half its time showing us a redheaded man crying because his woman hooked up with someone who knows how to kiss. He apparently was extremely dependent on her loving him. He didn't try to hook up with any of the women, so he's going home alone. Boo hoo.

Plans for tomorrow:
Tempted to go to the auction, but not stay long or buy anything. 
If they come back to finish the house, set up the live stream again
