Amazon/Fedex

I ordered a wifi outdoor camera from Amazon and it works better than I expected.
Cool, I'll get another one for another blind spot.
Prime deducted $54 from my bank, gave me a delivery date of about a week, and a tracking link.
A week goes by and I see its at a Fedex facility about ten miles from here. So far so good, right?
Next day I see it's in a Fedex facility in Oakland, CA. WTF?
Day after that it was delivered and signed for in San Francisco. Shit.
Since May 5th I've got no response from Amazon, no refund, no replacement, email, nada .
Fedex tells me "not our problem, go to Amazon".
So now I'm out a bottle of good bourbon or a coupla boxes of ammo.
Maybe if joined the riots I could loot Amazon for fifty bucks worth of shit.
2020 is not shaping up real well.

Update

Just talked to my daughter and she tells me the fever broke and breathing is back to normal.
She tells me that her hospital [Palo Alto VA] is still very short on PPE.

Close to home

My daughter is a RN in  the Covid 19 unit a the Palo Alto VA.
Face masks are unavailable. She tested positive and is sick.
My grandaughter is a nurse at the Fresno VA.
She was told to wear the same mask everyday as there are no new ones.
Sec. Wilkie are you listening?
They both are ready to quit, along with a lot of their friends.

Cabin fever

Cleaned/oiled the guns, changed the oil on the truck, cleaned all of the bathrooms, dusted all of the hooch (nine times), washed all of the windows, planted flowers, read twelve books, reloaded enough ammo to take us through WW4, Netflix/Prime movies until sepeku is sounding like a better idea......sigh.
