Well, we had an interesting night last night.
First, we "camped" out at Walmart in Norwich, Conn. It was our first Walmart "campground" on this trip....but free. All was going well..Mike was in the bedroom sleeping and I was in the livingroom watching tv (Private Practice) and all of a sudden, the toilet started flushing....and flushing...and flushing. It wouldn't stop. It was possessed.
It woke Mike up and he asked what I was doing....I said that the toilet was going crazy. So, he groggily got up, and not too happy I might add, to see what was going on. He couldn't stop it so he unplugged the fuse. It stopped. Then he plugged the fuse in again and it wouldn't work. After reading thru the little instruction pamphlet and Mike trying to fix it, to no avail, he gave up and said we'll have to call the manufacturer in the morning.
To make a long story short, he called all around this morning, from our campsite in the Walmart parking lot, and no one had the part, a controller, in stock. So, we had to order it and have it overnighted to us. But, there was another problem. Where was it to be delivered???!?!?!? We decided to make a decision on where to go, find a campground, make reservations and then have the part delivered tomorrow. Thank goodness for computers with wireless internet and cell phones! How did people travel before?
So, we're now in Mystic, Conn. Its a little resort community on the water in So. Conn. And yes, its where the movie was filed. Of course, we went there for lunch. You'll see an awful picture of me standing in front of the restaurant. It was actually pretty good food.
Since we're staying put for a couple of days awaiting repairs (thank goodness for Mike), we decided it was time to find a vet for Lincoln. No.....not for that. But his terrier skin allergies have been acting up rather terribly due to being exposed to grass everywhere. He's not used to the grass at home since our grasses don't start growing yet. I found a vet and he has an appt. tomorrow for an allergy shot....poor baby. He's been on his best behavior since he was grounded after the incident in a few weeks ago.
We just rested the rest of today as Mike didn't sleep much last night due to the toilet issue, so it was an uneventful afternoon. Tomorrow, after our vet appt., we'll go sightseeing.
