I will continue on for a few blogs about Area 15. But to catch up a few other things. The TV that Bill watches all the time keeps going black, until we unplug and reset the Dish Joey receiver. Needless to say this is driving Bill crazy. He has a hard enough time finding the buttons on the remote. So tech coming tomorrow aft. Hope he can fix it and that it is not the new Roku TV it is plugged into. We got lucky with tech - although for me it was a challenge. They were supposed to come between 12 and 5. So I went walking this morning at 9:00 - About 10:15 I get a call tech is at gate and wants code. I am in middle of Wetlands...So I told them I could meet them in about 15 minutes and gave them the gate code. Called Bill, several times, he was "reading in the bedroom" and didn't hear the phone - well, okay, he was sleeping. So I did some very fast walking, leaving my friends behind, and managed to get home in 13.5 minutes. They think they figured out the problem and now we wait and see. According to them our main box was the one getting too hot and shutting off the secondary box. So main box is now up on legs to keep it cool. So...
Also called health insurance and found a new retina doctor for Bill. Bill is not too happy with the way his eye is getting worse. And the doctor's attitude about it. So he now has an appointment on Dec1st to see new doctor. Hopefully he will get better news.
Las Vegas has been dealing with a whole lot of road closures along the strip due to the Formula 1 race event that starts next Wednesday through Friday. Guess when we will get our first rain of the winter. That's right Wednesday and Thursday!! I think most of the populace of Vegas is going OH YAH - NANA NANA!!! The repaving, putting up bleachers, closing strip sidewalks, cutting down old trees on strip sidewalks etc etc etc has been going on for over four months. Most regular people here in town cannot afford the tickets to go see it. So needless to say we aren't happy with the whole thing. All the strip workers will not be able to drive to their work places. Will have to park several blocks away and take the monorail or walk.
Entrance to a toy store, no we didn't go in. Too much to see to stop.
This is the line waiting to go into the "grocery store" Omega Mart. Our next stop after looking around some more. Let me remind you we had already walked in the Wetlands 3.5 miles that morning. Lots of ground to cover here.
You could crawl into this and stick your head out the hole for a picture. I thought about it but decided if I ever got under it they'd have to get a tow truck to get me out.
These are stuffed things...Daikon Radish stuffed toy. People were buying them.
Red and Green pepper ceramic pieces. Kind of funny.
Mushroom animals and vegetables. Only a couple of inches high.
A camel made out of soup cans, the soup was for sale.
And then we went through the cooler door. And the adventure began. How was it - well this is what I looked like when we came out an hour or so later.
