and more on our recent trip

Good afternoon.
Well, I cleaned the Salon this morning. I went in late as I over slept. Which is unusual for me but I must have been a tired boy after working 11 hours Friday and 9 hours Saturday.  Glad for my weekend.  :-)
Now back in Vegas......
I ordered a couple of desks for Craig and I. The ones we have in the apartment are pretty cheap, and we wanted nicer ones for there.
I ordered them from Walmart.com and had them shipped site to store. That gave us a bigger window for pick-up after we got out there.
Here's a pick of the first one before I put it together.....
Parts all over the place.
And when assembled.....
A nice spacious desk!
I had to add a drawer for the keyboard and mouse. The drawers on the right is the night stand for the bed which I can use for extra storage since this is a spare bedroom. I apparently forgot to take a pic of the second desk, so that will have to wait until our next trip.
One night Craig wanted his delicious short-cut chili. It calls for a box of Chili Hamburger Helper, a can of chili beans, a can of diced tomatoes and a can of black olives.
Unfortunately we discovered we didn't have a can opener. So, I got creative and used tin snips....


Not pretty, but they worked.   :-)
We did go out the next day and bought a cheap can opener.
We also found these cute geckos that Craig would like to put on our wall outside. For now, I put them on the kitchen wall until we get approval from our HOA architectural review committee.
Hopefully, tomorrow I'll post about our trip to Hoover Dam.
Bye for now..

  1. The desk definitely looks good!
    You probably have real lizards there somewhere. We have them all over, down here, and we had them in NC, too.
    Enjoy your weekend!
