Our inmate work crew got a lot done yesterday. Even though they're really only here working for about 4 hours, then don't stop. When I told one guy it was quitting time, he said "What? We only just got started!".
They have an hour drive from the institution just to get here, so they arrive at around 9:00am. And quitting time for their supervisor is at 3:00pm, so they have to leave here at 2:00pm. Take out an hour for lunch and there's your 4 hour work day. But, we're glad to have them. And they're coming back again today.
They're from a minimum security institution and it sure looks like the guys don't mind getting out and doing something different. Plus, they get a good meal in our restaurant. I came out from my own lunch to find that three of them had gone and jumped in the lake in their underwear! There's nobody around just now so it didn't matter. Despite whatever reasons might have put them in their current residence, they seem like a good bunch of guys and when they're working they don't stop.
While I was keeping those guys occupied, Ruth was doing some painting.

What else. Oh, I ordered a bag for our new camera. I just wanted something small, and did some research. Turns out that a bag called ApeCase ACPR0600 looked like just the item. Do you think I can find it in Canada? Nope. So I've twice emailed the company that makes it, but no response. That kind of stuff drives me crazy. What, you don't want to sell your product? I even left a message on their facebook page, but no reply. Anyhow, I can buy it online through the U.S. Walmart site and so I've done that and had it shipped to the Duluth, MN store where we can pick it up next Friday. Only $24, tax included.
Should fit our camera perfectly!
