Fabulous

Have you had your photo taken in front of this sign or drove past it? I’ve never been in front of the sign as the thing usually has so many tourists there. Have I driven past it? Dozens of times. Come visit, venues are slowly reopening.

Descending

A Regional Jet approaches the threshold at our McCarran International Airport. The distant clouds add a bit of flair to the photo. The RJ is my favorite aircraft to fly in, short takeoffs and landings too. Let’s get high together! 😎

Lunch With Out Of Town Friends

Today I met with some online friends who used to blog here on WordPress and used Instagram too. We have known each other via the web for three years now. Since they were in town we met up at a fun restaurant next door to the world-famous Pawn Stars shop, the same one you see on the television.

This restaurant is owned by Rick Harrison who owns the pawnshop. The food there is absolutely delicious! We three had a nice chat about many things including WordPress. The other photos were taken on the way home from lunch. Today is so beautiful, sunshine and 85 perfect degrees.

I have several more photos from today to share, please stick around!

Photos of Fremont Street

Here are ten older photos of Fremont Street that are about two years old and taken with the Nikon D3300 body. I’ve tried to clean them up but there’s only so much I can do. It was nice to go where you want with no mask and no fear of something so small that it’s not visible to our naked eyes. Time will change things as it always does…

Recycled Aluminum

Here are some nice photos of aircraft on approach to our Las Vegas McCarran International Airport about two years ago. I have lightened each photo up quite a bit, the Whites needed to be turned up a good bit so that they aren’t smothered in blues. Recycled aluminum, right? I’m excited about flying again soon and seeing my family. ❤️

The Sunset Forecast

It’s slowly getting closer to our scorching summer temperatures, one week at a time. Before we know it, it will be 110 degrees again. Can you handle the heat? Hey, that’s why we have air conditioning. Honestly, I believe that there would be far fewer people here if modern cooling systems weren’t invented.

I wonder what our native American people did to stay cool? Perhaps they moved high into the mountains in summer. In the nearby Spring Mountains, the temperature up there can be in the 70s and 80s while down here in Las Vegas Valley we are sweltering in up to 120F heat!

And this my friends has much to do with my remaining here five years ago after the bid D. Checking the weather on my phone this morning for two locations in Florida, Las Vegas was much warmer in the morning hours than west-central Florida. Oh, we have no hurricanes or tornadoes here in the Mojave Desert.

My Michigan hometown was at a chilly 32F but they’ve had the 50s and 60s recently which means it’s flip-flop season for the Michigan climate. Spray some seafoam treatment into your snowmobile engine’s cylinders, plug the air intake system up good to keep the varmints out, and be sure that the sled is off the ground.

Been there done that! It’s a very different life up there. I want to wish each of you a blessed Easter, He Is Risen!
