Lazy cat

Wednesday, September 30th, 2015


Here’s lazy, lazy Baymax. This is his normal behavior about 23 hours a day. The remaining hour, he’s complaining about his treatment. Typical. Great Art courtesy of the exclusive iPhone-cam, taken at the sliding glass door in My Humble Home, and part of my famous Las Vegas series.

I considered making it part of my famous Statue series, but he does occasionally move. So that didn’t seem like a perfect fit.

Wonders of WordPress. It’s been quite a long time since I posted and I refuse to miss a month. So I’m posting. So let’s find out where Joanne and I have been I last posted, shall we?

On August 22 & 23, we went to Pahrump. Yes, that Pahrump. The town with the totally legal brothels. We didn’t stop in at a brothel, although I thought it would be fun to take a tour. We DID go to a winery, where they had nice but relatively humble (trailer) lodging and a lovely restaurant. We had bought a package that included lodging and a fancy dinner. Enjoyed it! Would stay again.

On August 28 & 29, we drove up to St. George, Utah, where we stayed in a very nice Worldmark resort. We visited Zion National Park and thoroughly enjoyed it. Recommended. Next time: Bryce. Which I think is probably even more beautiful.

On September 3-7, we visited Vancouver, British Columbia. That was the Labor Day weekend, so Joanne had a vacation day. Interestingly, Canada celebrates Labor Day too, except that they call it “Labour Day.” So strange, huh? We took a bus tour to Victoria. We looked at downtown, went into a bunch of shops, and had lunch with some old friends of Joanne. Then we were off to Butchart Gardens. What a beautiful place! It’s not as big as Longwood Gardens in Pennsylvania, but it’s truly beautiful. Highly recommended.

Our hotel was near the waterfront in Vancouver and we spent time exploring the area. Then we discovered the float planes. I hemmed and hawed for a while and then finally decided we needed to take a ride in one of those babies. Which we did. It was amazing! Extremely highly recommended.

No other travel. On September 26, we took my new Porsche to Cars & Coffee Las Vegas. It was fun seeing all the interesting cars. We had a nice breakfast and came home. Later that evening, we went to my first event at Sam Boyd Stadium – a UNLV football game. Our team won by a score of 80 to 8. Not much of a close game, but it was fun to watch.

Oh, have I mentioned that I bought a Porsche? I did. Finally! It’s a 2007 Cayman in beautiful condition and with fairly low mileage. I love it. Behold:


Pretty nice, says I. I traded in my beloved Ford Taurus for it. I don’t regret that decision. The Taurus was a great car, but this one is greater.

And that pretty much brings us up to date. I’ll leave my Loyal Readers with this shocking food violence news: senior-citizen-instigated diner food fight!

See you tomorrow.
