But I'm still leaning towards a laptop, just a smaller one. Ruth's little 10" one isn't really that much bigger than some of the tablets out there, and when you consider that I would want a keyboard, then why wouldn't I simply get a small laptop. I don't really need the portability to have it with me at all times, I only really want it smaller to lighten the load when we travel. And I won't be getting any Mac products. Too pricey for me.
Maybe in September I'll get a chance to go looking during a trip to town. I probably wouldn't buy one in Canada anyhow, unless it was a fantastic deal. Here in Saskatchewan the tax would be 10% which isn't too bad, but a deal is more likely to be had buying in the States. So the shopping will have to wait until we're back in the U.S. in early November when we return from Korea.
Yesterday was a coasting kind of a day. Nice to wind down after such a busy weekend. The park felt pretty empty! There's no rain in the forecast, so I power washed the Gators and got all the mud off them. They looked so nice and clean afterwards that one little kid actually said "Kevin, did you wash the Gator?"
We're down to a three person crew now for the rest of the season. Kevin W., one of our summer student employees, goes back to school in Toronto soon so his last day of work was Monday. We're having the boys over for supper today as a send off. He's not sure if he'll be back next year because he's studying website design and will be looking for a job in that field.
Kevin W., Russell, Ruth, Kevin
