@ThomasWic Happy end of your birthday (although if I were you I'd milk it and go all week). When I think of your self proclaimed hermit status I am reminded of the Black Tower in Trier, Germany. It was very black when I visited in the 90s and leaned a bit like Pisa. The resident hermit was dearly beloved like you and although he rarely left the tower the villagers made sure he was well provisioned. Words of wisdom are worth many loaves of bread.
