I usually work from home on Thursdays, but I had an important meeting so I went to work at the office.
When Heather drove to the bus stop and then home with me in tow through our neighborhood, Hodgkins wasn’t conspicuously present. I’m not surpised since he expects us Monday/Wednesday/Friday.
On the way back we saw a mail truck really deep down a side street, but so far away as to make it impossible for it to be a useful vantage point.
This shows me that he is altering his routine to be near us.
