Stopped by Sam’s Club tonight on the way home to pick up some dog food and dog treats. Sam’s saves me about $10 a week on just dog supplies over the cost at Kroger, Publix and even Wal-Mart. My dog does best on the Purina red bag of dog food, called Purina One, and the flavor is called “sensitive systems.” For variety I will pick up a bag of chicken and rice flavor once in a great while, but they do best with the sensitive systems flavor, which are mostly salmon and vegetables.
While I was in Sam’s I noticed an aisle display of walkie talkies in a blister pack of two handsets. They claim to have a 20 mile range, which is extremely powerful. Most walkie talkies that I’ve looked at only have an 8 mile range. So 20 miles is a huge improvement, and they were reasonably priced at just $54 for the two handsets plus a battery charger for home and one for the car.
As soon as I got them home I tore open the blister pack and got those batteries charging. It takes 16 hours for the initial charge, but the batteries should last about 6 months on that one charge. I can’t wait to give them a field test and see what kind of mileage they really do get.
