A Video, City and Desert Photos

Good afternoon from Las Vegas Valley. The video was taken yesterday on Charleston Boulevard with the Escarpment looming large. The photo with many beautiful Joshua Trees was also taken yesterday and the others today on the way home from the doctor’s appointment that never happened. Check this out…

Two days ago, I couldn’t have my CT Scan because I screwed up and took my Metformin. Today, I was all set to have the CT done but couldn’t get it because the table you lay on suddenly broke. Apparently, it had gears grinding inside it! So, I once again had to drive all the way back home without the procedure taking place.

The technician was very apologetic, I was very forgiving. I said, hey, shit happens. That said, I hope to get the call tomorrow to return to a repaired CT machine complete with a functioning table. I meant what I said about shit happening, the technician seemed relieved that I wasn’t becoming belligerent. Of course, I didn’t!

Cubed Beef and Alfredo Sauce

Tonight I decided to use some cubed beef that had been in the refrigerator almost too long. The alfredo sauce was intended for the beef but I added a can of cut green beans which was yummy. I thought there was an onion in the fridge, but nope, it went into my chili! Ooops, next time, have an onion handy and maybe some other veggies too.

Mmmm good bachelor food!

The End Of The Road

Where the wonderful Bonnie Springs Ranch once stood at the end of Bonnie Springs Road, this is the view that greets you today. The attractions, restaurant, and more were located directly ahead. Now it’s dead. The sign that I blurred has contact numbers that nobody needs to have. The other photos were taken between the fence and Charleston Boulevard to the east of my location. I just love these beautiful Joshua trees!

Just West Of Town

Just west of town in the open desert as I call it is where I ended up this morning. It’s that wonderful time of year when the summer heat is fading away, and the nights are in the mid to upper 60s. I took a short walk too around Calico Basin. I snapped around sixty photos today, here are just three to begin this little series. These photos are from 50mm Nikkor.
