No Color Las Vegas

Taken in 2017, here are some old photos that were taken along Sahara Avenue heading east. The older fella holding the advertising sign is wearing a mask, that seems very prophetic today, doesn’t it?

Recent Grub

Recently, I’ve cut several salty foods out of my diet. The largest blood pressure raisers are my chili which I love and miss, but my black olives too among a few other foods. I’ve been purchasing much more fruit and veggies, both canned, frozen, and those that I can simply toss in the refrigerator. I want something healthier to munch on instead of tater chips or salty crackers.

This morning, I woofed down a yummy sliced cuke, complete with a splash of faux salt and black pepper. It’s been very different shopping for food these last two times! The eggs and toast were yesterday’s grub, complete with unsalted, I mean unbuttered toast. Today, I cheated for lunchtime and chowed down three tacos from Taco Hell. Not so good as Roberto’s, but they work!

A Very Low Ceiling

There aren’t any good photo opportunities today in my opinion with the cloud deck hovering so close to the ground, so I snapped this one photo of where there would be a six thousand foot mountain. This is at Summerlin Parkway and Durango Road. On the way home from the pharmacy, I spotted this odd-looking device and grabbed a photo of it.

Two possibilities: A small cell phone repeater, to fill in areas where the larger towers can not get a solid signal into, or, It is a detector that listens for gunfire. Not kidding. I’m pretty sure that my first evaluation is correct though. These damned low-pressure systems need to scoot outta here, but more rain is forecast this week. I want sunshine!
