But we had a good day on Tuesday, show sitting at our annual APAA Spring Pastel Show. Linda, a pastel nature artist in the show came by early to sit and chat with us, then Peggy and Gary showed up, and then Kendra came early also. It was fun to have some time to just sit and talk with everyone. And while we were talking, a man came in to show his wife a painting that he really liked and wanted to purchase. She was fine with that... so our final sale made a total of eight paintings sold for the show. Then on Wednesday, while we were on the road to Las Vegas.... I got an email from Laura (and also a phone call from Peggy) to say that my painting "Cypress Gardens" (see above) had gotten the Peoples Choice Award. That almost made me happier than getting the Honorable Mention from the judge for my "Tehachapi Sunrise" painting.
The Oasis RV Resort in Las Vegas is always our go to place to stay when we are on the road from home to the northwest. Yes, it is a little more money, but the pool and hot tub can't be beat and there are all sorts of stores, restaurants, and sights within a range of 1/2 hour or less.
We had never been down to Fremont Street for the Light Show. And many people had told us to check it out... so this time we made sure that we got down there... well no wonder everyone said to check it out, it is like a lewd extravaganza of flashing lights, flashing skin, and throbbing sound. The sights range from the ridiculous to the absurd.
There were girls showing their attributes and there were men showing their own attributes. All those displaying attributes wanted money. Hands out when they noticed you were taking a photo, and who wasn't taking a photo. There were two Muslim ladies taking photos too, I'll bet they will have some great stories when they get home.
