We enjoyed the back yard often. The cloud formations that drift by are hypnotic and Dave can't keep his eyes off all the planes that fly over on their way to and from Las Vegas. We have an app on my phone that identifies each plane and their route.....can't keep it away from him.

|chilly happy hour|
Lewis took full advantage of their deep leather couches and huge pillows when he tired of playing "find the fish" outside with Pam. He may or may not think their stone fountain is his personal drinking vessel.
We shared some good meals, either cooked in her large kitchen or taken out from the wonderful China Bistro. Dave and John learned new life skills when we asked them to preheat the oven and then bake a frozen Julian pie while Pam and I braved the grocery store. This accomplishment provided us all with serious belly laughs later that evening, but I will freely admit that the pie was perfectly baked.
|what will we do if it overflows????|
To assess the progress of Dave's leg pain we took a couple of Jeep rides, one to "the strip" and one out into the dessert to check out the wildflower situation. Things are getting better.
|no one around|
|Erotic Heritage Museum entrance.....|
|Pam discovered this Gehry designed building|
|the Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health|
|large Hoover Dam mosaic inlay at an overlook on the new I-11|
|We must all take time to stop and smell the flowers in this difficult time|
(and, if you're interested, cactus flowers do not smell!)
Here's hoping the stimulus check reaches us soon.
