THANK-YOU  THANK-YOU TO EVERYONE WHO SENT ME BIRTHDAY WISHES YESTERDAY FOR MY BIRTHDAY ON FACEBOOK, TEXTS, CHAT, AND PHONE CALLS.

FOR MY BIRTHDAY MARK AND JAYNE TOOK US OUT FOR AFTERNOON BEERS ON THE PORCH IN GOLDEN SHORES, AZ.  WE ENJOYED THE DAY IN SHORTS AND T-SHIRTS IN JANUARY, IT DOESN'T GET ANY BETTER THAN THAT !!!




MARY RECENTLY MADE THE SWITCH TO A SMART PHONE AND WE'VE BEEN TRYING TO FIGURE OUT ALL THAT GOES WITH THAT. IF SOMEBODY WANTS TO SEND US A GRANDCHILD FOR A WEEK TO HELP US, LET US KNOW.

WE DID MANAGE TO TAKE THE TWO PICTURES AND GET THEM TO THE BLOG SO WE'RE HEADED IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION. I'M STILL USING THE OLE FLIP PHONE SO DON'T BOTHER SENDING PICTURES TO ME.

THANKS AGAIN FOR THINKING OF ME YESTERDAY!

Lake Mohave

Today  we went to Katherine's Landing in the Lake Mead Recreational Area to hike.  I cannot believe we have been here 20 winters and I have never hiked this trail before.  I do know this, I will be hike this trail again as it was really nice.



It to goes along the side of Lake Mohave and leaves me amazed at the desert/lake contrast.



Here's my favorite hiking buddy pulling out ahead of me.  Actually that is unusual.  I am usually in front!!




This was the payoff at the end of the hike, a nice beach.  As I already mentioned, we will be doing this hike again!

FREMONT STREET

MY REPORT ON FREMONT STREET

WE SPENT A COUPLE OF DAYS ON FREMONT STREET DOWNTOWN LAS VEGAS WITH MARK AND JAYNE.  THE BEST NEWS IS SOMETHING THAT HASN'T CHANGED:


YUP, I CAN STILL BUY $3 BUD LIGHTS ON FREMONT STREET.

FIRST UP IS THE UPGRADING OF THE CANOPY LIGHTS. SEVERAL MILLION DOLLARS AND EIGHT MONTHS OF WORK.  THE RESOLUTIONS IS LIKE A VIDEO SCREEN AND THE LIGHTS ARE SEVEN TIMES BRIGHTER MAKING IT POSSIBLE TO USE THE SCREEN DURING THE DAY.  MY PICTURE WAS TAKEN IN THE DAY LIGHT.



NEXT UP ON THE REPORT IS THE NEW CASINO CALLED "CIRCA". LAST YEAR MY BLOGS SHOWED THE DEMOLITION OF THE OLD VEGAS CLUB WHERE CIRCA IS BEING BUILT.




THE NEW CASINO IS SCHEDULED TO OPEN NEXT DECEMBER. AT THIS POINT YOU'RE LOOKING AT 17 FLOORS AND THE TOTAL IS GOING TO BE 37 FLOORS. THEY ARE WORKING 24/7 AND ADDING ONE FLOOR A WEEK.

WE CHECKED OUT THE NEW WHISKY LICKER UP  BAR AT BINIONS, BUT THEY HAD A NO-SMOKING POLICY DESPITE SLOT MACHINES SO WE LOOKED AROUND AND WALKED OUT.

CIRCA SPORTS IS A NEW SPORTSBOOK DOWNTOWN VEGAS AND WE FOUND IT INTERESTING THAT WHILE THE OTHER SPORTSBOOKS FAVORED THE VIKINGS BY 3 POINTS TO BEAT THE PACK, CIRCA SPORTS FAVORED THE VIKINGS BY 5.5 POINTS.  MARY AND I BET $40 ON THE PACKERS TO WIN AND COLLECTED $123.20 ON THE WINNING TICKET BEFORE WE WENT TO BED.

WE ENJOYED VEGAS AS USUAL AND HAD OVER 20,000 STEPS BY THE END OF THE DAY AND A PACKER WIN, BUT IT WAS NOT "SUNNY & 80".
