Shower Envy

It’s always after Christmas that the new toys start appearing at the beach, leaving some of us feeling a bit left behind.  

There are, for example, many of us who thought the HarCon 1.75L Manual Shower was as good as it got.  It was, therefore, a bit of a shock on Saturday morning when Gary Frost produced his All-New, Just-Delivered-By-Santa, HarCon 2000 5L Pump Primed Shower.

Talk about an “I-Want-One-Of-Those” moment.

I did my best to hide the feelings of inadequacy and waffled about wanting to “keep it real” and “going back to vinyl”, “retro” etc.  It was all just a front, though.  

Fortunately for me, both Messrs. Harris and Condon were at the beach on Saturday.  I was able to stop in to the HarCon Mobile Yaris Sales Pod and get advice on how best to respond.  Amazingly, it involved me parting with loadsa cash.  The end justifies the means, though (as the salesmen kept telling me).

Let’s just say, I’m looking forward to next Saturday morning, post-swim…

Anyone have a loan of a generator, by the way?
