Another Visit…

Another visit to my doctor’s office this morning for a follow-up on the blood panel. No worries, I will live! Great results. I snapped these photos along the way heading home this morning, another beautiful day in the valley! My dad’s home in Florida was not affected by hurricane Ian, thank God!

The Human Body

This wonderful print of the human body was photographed yesterday in the waiting room of my doctor’s office using the iPhone 12. I would love to have this at home, and one of the employees agrees with me. What a day it is, currently 102 very windy degrees in the valley. I took a ride to the pharmacy for a new medication doctor is having me try, then a bit of a joy ride on the way back home as the truck slipped through those powerful Mojave Desert Winds. I think of that truck as my ship of the desert. Click the pic to enlarge.

To And From

Just a few photos on the ride to and from the doctor’s office this morning. Great follow-up news from the doctor too! Today has been one of those days that I have difficulty dealing with the drivers here. I could go on a rant about what happened but I will spare you the bullchit. 😎

Tree Flowers and Red Glass

Whilst waiting to get into the doctor’s office (it was very early) I walked the sidewalk and came upon a tree with these pretty flowers all over it, and the bees were busy buzzing all over it. Not a great photo but you get the idea. The red glass is the light over my booth table at Denny’s restaurant. After fasting for sixteen hours, I was a wee bit hungry! That was cheating because I swore off eggs and hash browns… Oh well.

Throwback To Black Coffee

I miss drinking coffee. High blood pressure prevents me from enjoying the buzz and aroma in the house which totally sucks! I’ve read many articles on this subject, it seems that there is no solid evidence one way or the other on this subject but I know 100% for sure that coffee does raise my blood pressure because I have a BP machine in the kitchen always ready to go. It’s a serious daily battle that I must win each day or in time, I’ll be six feet under before my time. Everyone’s system is different and there are so many different compounds in coffee that one diagnosis could never fit everyone. Would you like to purchase my mini Mr. Coffee?

Rolling Home After A Dentist Visit

I had an early appointment for my every three months checkup. Doctor B says my teeth look great including the bridge and two crowns. Unfortunately, I have two cavities forming that has got to be dealt with before they turn into a freaking root canal! I’ve had at least two and they are horrid!

I scheduled that for next month, oh joy. Anyway, I grabbed these images on the way home, I can’t resist photographing Tivoli Village or the Queens Ridge condominiums. If you want a condo in there, you’ll need to cough up a million or more for some of the residences. That’s a wee bit out of my budget!

The Vegas Strip From The iPhone 12

I snapped this shot yesterday to send to family members, I think it looks damn good considering the focal length of the iPhone. Nothing compared to the 18-140mm Nikkor lens! I wish that I could bring myself to just go down there for something different for this website.

The first roadblock for me is the lack of easily accessible and free parking. A few years ago, we Locals had to show ID to get free parking. Today, and before the pandemic, the greedy corporations that own these venues on the Strip began charging everyone for parking. Seriously?

They are worth billions I’m sure, yet human greed reigns supreme here in Sin City. Then, of course, we have the remnants of covid still hiding, lying in wait for another victim. That’s just too scary for me man… Call me paranoid or a chicken shit, but I want to live as long as I can!
