Finally Caught Up and also starting to feel better

I have seen Las Vegas in passing, but had never really SEEN Las Vega. We stayed at the Thousand Trails RV Resort for four days. So we came into town, parked the car in a public parking lot, and walked, walked and walked.

From one end of town to the other. We also saw a couple of shows. Million Dollar Quartet  at Harrah's and
Las Vegas....The Show at Planet Hollywood.  We did see one other one and  for the price we paid we were very disappointed in it. Country Superstars  

These guys were such a kick!  Look closely. What is he sitting on :P

I think my favorite cassino was the Venetian and the  Grand Canal Shoppes.It was so beautiful inside. I loved the Gondola's and the Gondoliers singing. There was even a female gondolier and she had such a beautiful voice.

Our last day in the area, we took a day trip to Lake Mead and Hoover Dam.

Can you see how low the water is?

We took a tour through the power plant. Except for being stacked in the huge elevator lake sardines in a can, it was a very interesting and informative tour. We had to go through security like at an airport and Joe didn't see our car key he left in the bucket with other pocket belongs. (he also had to surrender his little pocket knife and was told it could not be returned to him.)

The tour guide in this picture was explaining to Joe and a few others about the drought situation.

As I said in the title, I'm finally starting to feel better. Trying to get my energy level back up. I had my first good nights sleep in weeks  last night. Thank you for all your prayers.  I would also like to add, for those of you who commented on The Christmas Card Blog....
The Most Wonderful Time of the Year  is our 2nd most favorite Hallmark Christmas Movie.  We are looking forward to the new ones coming out this season.
