Pickin' & grinnin' at the Junction Store & Cafe, south on 95 Hwy.
Friday night catfish buffet... yum

Back where I started- almost

Play me!

Leaving Las Vegas, waiting at the gate, nothing to do, still have an hour, still have a dollar...
Played on a dollar for half an hour... Won my dollar back. Woo-hoo big winner... Time to quit!
Big gambler, huh?

16 Nov., 2009 -- Vegas geocaching

Las Vegas Natural History Museum, geocaching. That's an Argentinosaurus. Found a
travel bug up in the container hidden in the structure. I'll bring it to MO and pass it on!

Another geocache, with angels in the container.

Vegas during the day isn't very glamorous.

I copied this image of the Argentinosaurus from somebody else's
geocaching log, it shows the whole animal. I'd love to have this in
our front pasture!

15 Nov., 2009 -- Vegas lights

Dinner at the Golden Nugget downtown. Big ole crawdads, huh? $80 apiece. Nah, I don't think so.
Cousins Billie Lee and Jody. Lived here all their lives, know all the best eating places!

Sis Carolyn played $6 of her $20 in a slot machine, and won $75.
I put 20 of my $20 in a slot, won zip. That's it for the gambling.

Glitz and glitter, and two blocks of an overhead light show. This is the downtown, old part of Vegas. The cowboy's arm at the Pioneer Club used to wave, and the cowgirl wasn't even there when we were kids. The annual Heldorado Parade would move down this street in the afternoon before the rodeo. I have a photo of Roy Rogers on Trigger from way back then!

Las Vegas back yard

An old friend-cousin's back yard. Not much grass to mow. We're off to see the REAL lights of Vegas now!
