But apparently I'm going to have to shop around! Initial research tells me that these devices sell for around $120.00! And there's no generic version because the patent doesn't expire until 2025. Going to have to explore this further, but yes...I will make a point of getting something like this.
Okay, so the first thing on yesterday's agenda was to get rid of Moose, the stray dog. He slept in the house with us and he was fine except that he woke us up at about 5:30am wanting outside. We let him out on a rope and went back to sleep. Apparently he did too because we didn't hear a whine out of him.
I had a couple of things to do in town anyhow, and Moose eagerly hopped in to the truck and awkwardly lay down in the passenger seat. He's actually a little too big for the seat and kind of had his butt laying on the console. Looked a little funny, but he seemed happy enough.
Found the SPCA in Prince Albert and saw the sign that said "Open at 11:00am". It was about 10:30 then. Hmm. But there was a guy doing a delivery of some kind at a side door and so I went over there and managed to talk to an employee. She went and got the director and I explained how Moose was on the road and was at risk of getting hit by a car so I picked him up. Yes, a little white lie, but I had been told that they wouldn't accept him unless you're a resident of the city so I wasn't taking any chances. Said goodbye to the big fellow and that was that. I hope he finds a happy home.
Did some more running around in town, and then back to the park in time for the long weekend campers to arrive.
Spent the afternoon and evening delivering wood and solving people's problems. Some registration and reservation issues and I'm learning that this is pretty typical. How can a small campground like this not have a computerized reservation system? One of the things that I'll bring up at the next board of directors meetings.
Didn't get to bed until midnight, and up at 7am this morning. Haven't heard about any overnight problems yet, but everything seemed relatively peaceful when I did my last rounds before hitting the sack.
Lots going on today. Volleyball and horseshoe tournaments, a silent auction, burgers on the beach. So have to go down and help the special events committee get all set up for this stuff. Looks like a gorgeous day though, calling for blue sky and sunshine with a high of 23C (73F).
This is the last day to enter our contest, so any of you in North America with a self contained RV camper can enter our contest to win one of three Harvest Hosts memberships. So fill out the forms above and we'll announce the winners on Tuesday morning!
Another pretty sunset last night.
