Mexican Fast Food

This is an older photo from about four years ago, taken along Las Vegas Boulevard near the northern end of the Las Vegas Strip. That Bonanza gift shop is still there today with its 99 cent souvenirs. Would you like to have a 99 cent souvenir? I didn’t think so but I’ll try some food.

Local Streets

Local yes, but not at all close to my home! just some random photos from yesterday where I came upon the fun bunch of geese, goslings, and ducks. Did I ever mention that I love ducks?

You’ll not see this in Michigan! ❤️

Always The Road Work

Since it never snows in the valley except for a very tiny bit of flurries, our road crews can work all year round which should mean they get things done more quickly? Not the case, this area has been under repairs for several weeks now. Why?

It’s the same thing with the new freeway overpasses over the ninety-five freeway north of me a few miles, ongoing for a few years now. Again, why? I’m no road engineer but have a brain that sees something odd. Perhaps it’s all about job security?

Goslings and Ducks

Once again I had to head to the pharmacy today for those pills that keep my not so old body running, it sucks having heart disease, type two diabetes, and a messed up back. Anyway, I stopped along the little man-made lakes again for these fun photos. Note how large the goslings are now, wow! They grow like the weeds I remove from my yards every other day…

Hualapai at Charleston Boulevard

Here’s an older photo from about three years ago heading east on Charleston Boulevard. After moving north from this area it became obvious how much busier that road is compared to my new location. Vegas traffic can be tough and dangerous.

Oscar’s

I have driven by this place a few times and never stopped in. The architecture is very odd which leads me to think that it may have been built forty or more years ago? The website has no information on its beginnings. Should I have been born and raised in Las Vegas I may have known this. They have very pricey steaks!

A Quick Ride

I had a quick ride to the store for supplies at mid day, captured these not so exciting photos that do show that Las Vegas is still alive and well. it’s been several days since I went out, the traffic level appears to be up slightly. In the store I was not happy to see several folks were not wearing masks, that’s being stupid, people! But what is one man’s opinion worth…

Droopy

My Mexican Fan Palms are scheduled for pruning July second and as you can see in the photos, they are due. Last week’s 90-degree temps appear to have made the fronds become very droopy. I’ve almost decided to have that messy African Sumac (weed) tree taken down too as it’s a constant battle with the dead leaf droppings daily. They are terrible, nasty trees!

An Old Sunrise

These photos are about five years old and taken on the way to work one morning. I quit that job, not because of the job but because of very poor management. I won’t tolerate being talked at, through, or down to by a belligerent employer! This happens too often to people…

On The Border

Welcome home to Nevada! Some of you may be aware that a magnitude 6.5 earthquake rattle west-central Nevada around four AM this morning. I was sleeping and felt nothing, the epicentre was near Tonopah, Nevada which is a long way from Las Vegas. My home was not affected either, great news. I was awoken by my phone which was muted yet the vibrations from the phone woke me. My father and sister were calling from Michigan to find out if I am OK.

Water

With the ducklings and duck parents nearby, I snapped these photos of the agitated water. Today has been seriously windy with gusts up to fifty miles per hour! Another Wind Storm…

Welcome to The Show!

Here is a different angle on our famous Las Vegas sign as I call it with zero people in the image! In the other image. I am westbound on Charleston Boulevard just outside of the city. The Red Rock Escarpment is seen just left of centre and several miles away from my location.

The Escarpment is a faultline.
