Jeff Jarvis to the Rescue

SuperBlogger Jeff Jarvis read my post about our robot Roomba who had gone missing and issued an APB to the blogosphere.  Never underestimate the power of blogs; within twenty-four hours of Jeff’s post, Roomba has been found.

Actually he was found by our son-in-law Hugh Morris, but I still give Jeff full credit for amplifying the alarm.  Roomba was huddled under a bed where Mary and I had each looked many times.  Current informed speculation is that Roomba had drawn a cloak of invisibility around himself but, when his batteries ran down, was exposed to Hugh’s searching eyes.
