Scenes from Las Vegas

Things did not go well with the two different doctors yesterday. We are both on antibiotics so all should turn out well. 

Just some pictures I took on the way - way across town - to the doctor's office. The reflection in the building is a new hotel being built. It is going to be really big. 

This is the new hotel, it will be a Resort World hotel.
I always do a double take when we pass this building. They sell manikins. 
This wall has had the American Flag painted on it for at least 17 years. Some one must be keeping it up. No peeling or faded paint on it. 
And here is what I managed to catch of this mornings sunset. Was up at 5:03 - ugh way too early. 
Across town again today to visit our youngest son at his business. New metal plants in the center divider. They look real until you look really close at them. Sure saves on the watering and maintenance while looking great. 
The High Roller was s l o w l y revolving. Little by little things are opening up. 
Found our son's business. Was surprised at this mask holder. What a good idea. A napkin holder! His business is a cleaning service for homes and offices and industrial businesses. 
This is how the ladies leave the towels in the bathrooms. On display in one of the offices. 
Stopped at the Argentine market and restaurant to get some empanada dough. Will make chicken empanadas sometime in the next couple of days. 
The reflection of the same new hotel in another building. It sure is red.
The RV is still at the RV doctor - seems to be a lot of doctoring going on. Waiting for a couple of batteries to be delivered. Stopped at Pharmacy to pick up Bill's antibiotics. Only three days worth. Pharmacist says it is pretty powerful. A powder that has to be dissolved in water then immediately drank. He was pleasantly surprised at the taste, said it was an orange flavor. 
Then on home. I fixed one of Bill's favorite meals for his birthday dinner - chicken Paella. Turned out really good. 
And on to  another day. No errands tomorrow, no chores that need to be done, no doctors that need to be talked to. Whew - hopefully quiet day.

Drastic change in weather

Oh my gosh, I knew it was finally going to get cooler, but this is a whole lot cooler. Bill is going to freeze. And we might get rain Sunday night and Monday. 

Had an emotional melt down the other evening. I think everything is just catching up with me. I complained loudly about how warm it was in the house, so Bill took pity on me and turned the thermostat down. Then he was cold. Ended up wearing long pants and a sweat shirt! I continued my sulking - got out a 300 piece puzzle and did it while listening to old sad country music. 

Heard, kind of, from doctor after many calls to them. They made Bill an appointment for Wednesday to see the doctor again. Think it is just an infection, but then they added, "If his symptoms get worse go to emergency." Now that is scary. What symptoms??? He feels fine - he says.  My results weren't back yet so have to call again today. [After another phone call found out my results were in doctors office last Thursday.] So  many changes since I started this yesterday. This morning Bill has an appointment clear across town with an infectious disease doctor and I now have to see our primary doctor this afternoon - I will be getting the appointment that was originally for Bill. What a mess. And still no real answers. When we get home in the spring will be looking for another primary doctor!

We got our second shingles shot two days ago, boy is my arm swollen and sore, even ran a slight fever yesterday. Feels okay today. 

I decided I like to be able to hang my mask around my neck when going between errands so made another beaded strap. The one on the mask I'd made when I was making the beaded necklace, so just starting the new one. 

Got it done, remember the necklace? The new strap is the top one. So now I have two just in case one breaks. They are so light weight can't even feel it on my neck. 
I can change them from mask to mask. Not making one for Bill, think he'd feel a little silly with flowers around his neck. 
Went over to the RV yesterday and it wouldn't start so called FMCA Roadside Assistance to get a jump start. They told me our account had expired. I was sure I'd paid it but didn't argue and after hanging up went on line and to check it out. Oops - maybe I didn't renew it in May. Then we went back to the RV and I looked for the paper work, sure enough I'd renewed it in May. After checking both cards I realized they had different membership numbers on them. So guess a phone call is in order later today. Finally got it started and right now it is at RV doctor being checked, belts, batteries, tires etc. Don't need any problems while on the road.  PS - called them and got my money back for duplicate membership. 
I would like just one day with no drama. 
AAARRRGGG! Home from one doctor on way to another.

Waiting game

 I tried this recipe in the air fryer. Didn't take pictures of my attempt - sure didn't look like their picture. They say to cut eggplant in 1" slices...well I cut it into about 3/4" slices and there is no way in heck you can roll up a 3/4" slice of cooked eggplant. It is just too thick. Before I go further though, it was very good when put together. I made a couple of changes used Italian flavored hummus and mozzarella cheese. Next time I'm going to cut the slices less than 1/2" thick. 

Just a picture from my walk yesterday. Liked the colors. 

Also another home really decorated for Halloween. 
This morning we went to the market, mainly just to get out and about and then to the pharmacy where we got our 2nd Shingles shot. We are now all done with shots - thank goodness. Also trying to get my prescriptions in order for our winter trip ... Hopefully they are all straightened out now.
We are still waiting to hear from our primary doctor with the results  of last weeks tests. Some of which might or might now put a damper on our plans to leave in a couple of weeks. 
There is also some concern about being able to drive into Mexico. We know of several people who have done it lately but just to check we got in touch of a friend in San Carlos and asked if any Americans in RVs had stopped at his campground lately. The answer was yes, of course. There is no problem on driving into Mexico. I finished another 500 piece puzzle. Very pretty and took some time.
