Life in 2013

At my sister-in-law's house in Michigan, they have a motion detector/camera by the front door.

I think they mostly got it to keep track of a formerly feral cat they had gradually introduced to a life of relative comfort and ease.

Anyway, the camera unit automatically emails a series of photos of the person or animal on the front porch to both her and her husband's phones.

Well, a Fedex delivery man arrived at the front door with golf clubs that had been sent home to the Midwest from California by her husband.

My sister-in-law didn't hear the doorbell nor did she see the front door emails. But her husband, who was still in California, did. So he called and reported that the Fedex guy had tried to deliver his clubs.

My sister-in-law hopped in her car and tracked down the Fedex truck there in their development. She took possession of the golf clubs.

The formerly feral cat presumably requested that there be a little less commotion while napping was in progress.
