Wilson the Tortoise

The other day Sandy was commenting on the faux tortoise in my backyard, it reminded her of the soccer call in the Tom Hanks movie where he’s stranded alone on an island. So I’ve named him Wilson! Now Wilson being totally faux means he doesn’t move, right? This morning I noticed that he has somehow moved to the faux grass! OM Gosh, is my home haunted?

Sunny Fronds

I spent some time in the backyard today soaking up the wonderful 82 degree breeze and sunshine. My Latino neighbours behind me playing some traditional Latino music but not too loud for a change.

Other neighbours outdoors working on their yards also enjoying the sunshine. A quick chat about my electric leaf blower from much more than six foot apart. My windows open allowing a soft warm breeze through the house.

I thought why not grab the Z6 and take a few more redundant palm tree photos? Another wonderful day in my little piece of Las Vegas. 🌴🌵🌞

People Are Out and About

Las Vegas is a city of about two million people, many of them are still out and about doing their daily things. My drug store and pharmacy now has signs taped to the floor with blue tape forming a line with a six foot spacing. Why six foot? Overall things seem very much normal around my area of the city which I’m grateful for but let’s keep things in perspective, be safe.

Today is sunny with 82 degrees. 🌴🌞😎

Sunny Blue

Good morning from sunny Las Vegas, today we have full sunshine and 81 wonderful degrees on tap! It will cool to the seventies after today which isn’t bad at all.

Old Grits

No rotting grits here, just some iPhone photos from 2015. Back in the day the boys and I called a pack of smokes ‘Grits’, a single smoke is of course a Grit. Hey, this was the early 1980’s and some damn good times. Can I go back? I wonder what these antique machines are worth…

More of My Backyard

Are ya sick of seeing my simple, basic backyard yet? Honestly I’m quite bored as are so many I’m sure. I even scuffle hoed the few weeds I found both front and back today. It’s almost as though I’m thankful for the stupid weeds that give me something to do! Pathetic eh?

I have far more than enough photography from long ago to keep this blog going but I don’t wanna bore people either with old photos or the same old shit either… I’m wanting to take a couple photo trips too, one is the Hoover Dam, the other is driving all the way down to Laughlin, Nevada along the Colorado River. Actual, real photo opportunities!

Faux  Green Grass
Mr. Tortoise
Exciting photo of my chimney!

Limp

Or flaccid if you prefer. No high winds in the valley today which is nice, I snapped this photo after leaving the bank this morning. I tried setting up the online transfer thing Saturday with a bank employee, it didn’t work so I’ll di it the old fashioned way. That blue sky is beautiful!
