Sunday 10-28 Visiting Louise

Doing this and that

The other day Larry was talking to Louise on the phone and she mentioned that her waterbed heater went out. She bought a new one and drained her bed but needed help replacing it. This morning we headed to her house in Round Rock. While checking out the old heater Larry discovered the heater had apparently shorted out, it melted a hole through the liner and left a burnt mark on the bottom of the bed. He inspected the mattress and found at the corners it felt hard and brittle, the tag indicated it was 15 years old. Louise decided she should order a new liner and mattress for the bed. They went on Amazon and found a mattress, liner and mattress pad. When they come in we'll go back and install all the pieces. In the mean time she will continue to sleep on her couch or in her spare bedroom.

Louise had replaced the batteries in her thermostat and it would no longer work with Alexa. Larry reprogrammed the thermostat and now she can ask Alexa to turn the temperature up or down. While it sounds a bit crazy to ask Alexa to change the temperature of the air conditioner or heater instead of going to the thermostat and doing it yourself it is one of those things that once you start using it it is really convenient. We love our thermostat, you can even adjust it from the road via a smart phone. Really nice if you forget to turn off your thermostat before leaving on a trip.

Louise had also purchased a new Roku for the TV in her bedroom. While we were there Larry installed it and got it working.
While visiting Louise I played with her dog Alice.

After doing the projects we had lunch. Louise had bought a Papa Murphy's pizza. For dessert we had Reese Peanut Butter Cups. Then we said good-bye and went home.

When we got home we watched a couple episodes of GizWiz and some YouTube videos. In the evening we finished watching The Woman in White. I enjoyed watching this series. Then I worked on my puzzle. I finished watching the Frankie Drake Mysteries series.
