Landscaped In Blue

These photos are from the other day heading north for the park again, the processing is a bit different. Sunny and 76 degrees is our forecast today, I hope it’s sunny where you are.

I Forgot The Battery

On a whim, I headed for Floyd Lamb Park once again today but forgot to get the battery for the Nikon from the wall charger. Call me senile? I also forgot that it’s Sunday which means that the park would be super busy which it was. Usually, I drive right to the entrance gate and booth but not today, I was at least ten cars back from the booth.

Driving through the park I noticed multiple groups of people all near the ponds, the geese, and other birds scattered among the hundreds of people. I hopped out of the truck and had a short walk but decided to head back to the truck and home. These days, everyone carries a backup camera with them in the form of a phone camera.

Frankly, I use my iPhone as a camera, as a social media device, and to arm and disarm my home alarm system more than I do to text or call family members. So on the way to the park, out comes the trusty iPhone, always ready to capture the photo. These photos aren’t Nikon quality so don’t laugh! I do like the simplicity of the camera though.

Loop Trip

During yet another trip to the pharmacy, I decided to go west just out of town for some random photos for the blog. It’s a beautiful day again but a bit cool. I forgot that it’s Saturday which means the recreation lands out there are stuffed full of people. I stopped at Moenkopi Road instead of going farther in.

So here they are, there is another set yet to be processed behind this one. On a different note, my doorbell camera recorded someone trying to enter my home last night around 2AM. I am going to take the video to my local police station on Monday morning.

I have a great video of this asshole to show the police, I hope that I can help the police catch this guy. Maybe he has prior arrests. The police are your friends, people, regardless of what the current crop of young hooligans say.

Back To The Valley Of Fire

I really need to take the ride north to the Valley Of Fire again, it’s been a long time. The rock formations and colors are crazy beautiful there. There are two ways to get there. The fastest is taking the 15 freeway north from Las Vegas. The most beautiful way to get there is to take Lake Mead Boulevard east until you reach the boundary of the Lake Mead National Recreation Area and head north. Eventually, you will come up to the park gate entrances.

Drone Days

Should I spend the money on another drone? I sold my first drone because I was frustrated with too many rules and regulations. I suppose this ‘hobby’ is completely run by the fools in Washington by now since these people always believe that they know what is best for the lot of us. Oh hell no they don’t!

On another note, did you find some changes in your Site Admin this morning? I did. No, the legacy editor I’m using via a plugin wasn’t taken away thank God, but the left sidebar has been altered to make you use a different Stats page which actually works better. Gee, WordPress did something right?

Double Whammy at The Dentist Today

I had an appointment for a cleaning this morning, but the new crown for one of my teeth was also there so just before the cleaning, the doctor came in and cemented the permanent crown in place. Good fit, all done. The cleaning went well too, I really like the professionalism of this office.

Here are some Nikon photos that were taken on the way to and from the office with the 24/70mm Nikkor lens. As predicted by the weather service, there were spotty showers around the valley, you can see the different cells around you easily with the lack of heavy forest woods around you. My ride didn’t get dorty though, yes!

Another Pharmacy Trip and Vaccine Scheduled

This morning I made yet another run to the pharmacy for a refill, pills, pills, and more pill refills. When I got back home, I did another daily check on the Clark County website regarding my eligibility. Well, it’s about time. They are now taking appointments for people in my age group who have underlying medical conditions. If you have followed the blog long enough, then you know I have Type 2 diabetes and heart disease. Please pray for me! 😂

Just three photos from this morning with the Nikon and 24/70mm lens.
