Top Droppers for July....and....


Wow where does the time go? First my top Entrecard Droppers for July are:

Cinnamon Spice & Everything Nice
PJ's Prose
Computer Aid
WillOaks Studio
Split Rock Ranch
Frugal Healthy Choices
My Gypsygoods
A Rose By Name
Silver Sachet
Yarn Hall

Thanks to all that drop by! To celebrate my 50th post I am sharing a few of the photos I took while walking back from the post office last week. The first one is the Encore Hotel and Casino which is the one I took while lying on the ground in a church parking lot. That was interesting!

This next one is the top of the Wynn Hotel and Casino with the Encore's parking garage in front of it. Again this was taken in the church parking lot. About this church too, while it isn't technically "on" Las Vegas Boulevard AKA The Strip it is a stones throw from there so is considered the only church on The Strip and boy is it busy on Sundays. I still haven't been inside the Encore but would like to since the "theme" there is butterflies. When I do, I'll make sure to have the camera with me and share the photos.

Lastly, is Trump Tower....yes as in Donald Trump. Now I don't think this has a casino attached to it so is just a hotel. It's on Fashion Show Drive which is next to the Fashion Show Mall. We go to the food court there occasionally as they have some pretty good selections. The Greek place is my husbands favorite since they have Moussaka which he loves. Just in case you were wondering, yes those are clouds in the sky. We had just been having some rain since it's Monsoon Season here though when we moved here 15 years ago there was no such thing. In fact, we used to comment to each other how cloudless the sky was in June, July and August.

Hope you enjoy these new photos. We are driving up to San Francisco on Saturday morning. Starting early, about 7am so we get there in time for the baseball game which starts at 6.05pm. We'll drive back on Sunday so just a quick trip but need to get away from the heat. Will be bringing my thermal underwear and heavy jacket since, in the words of Mark Twain "The coldest winter I spent, was a Summer in San Francisco". The San Francisco Giants are playing the Philadelphia Phillies and it is the Dog Days of Summer at the park. I'm hoping I get some good shots of the dogs in their Giant's gear and the park which I will share later. Have a great weekend everyone!
