update time!

Good morning. And a happy 4th of July!
It was a crazy busy 2 days in the Salon. Glad for the weekend.  :-)
Here's a couple more pics from our recent trip to Vegas....
One day, we went to Sunset park. It's Las Vegas largest park and sits just a bit southeast of the airport, and right next to Wayne Newton's Estate. Well, the landing path for the airport is right in front of the park. We watched plane after plane land.
They must have come in every 5 minutes or so. I had read in the paper that McCarren (That's Las Vegas's airport) Had a record 4.1 million passengers in April. Yes 4.1 MILLION just in the month of April!
 So the planes are landing and taking off one after the other all day long.
On another note, we actually fixed a meal in the house this trip. 
Got a little tired of fast food and takeout all the time. Pan fried a couple of pork chops with broiled asparagus and a cheesy rice dish.
Now back here in Lansing, I went over to Best Buy and picked up my square reader.
Now since we've sold the Salon, the new owner is ending the charge card service that Craig had used. That then requires every stylist to process their charges from customers themselves. There are a number of services that do this now, and Craig and I settled on Square. I went online, signed us up for an account, putting in the bank account number and routing number we want the funds deposited into, then downloaded the square app from the google play store to my phone, get the card reader which attaches to the top of the phone and I'm all set to take charge cards from my customers. You open the app, put in the service amount, swipe the card through the reader, and it processes it, the customers signs the screen, and they can either get a text message receipt, or e-mail. Pretty nifty!
Yesterday, we went for a nice long walk, and while Craig did his paperwork, I went for another walk over to Best Buy, and when Craig finished his paperwork, we went for another walk, this time over to Reno's for a couple of cocktails and free popcorn.
Looking to be another couple of nice days so planning on some more long walks.
And with that, time to get going with the day.

  1. A lot less paperwork for Craig now. I bet he likes that.
    Your meal looks good on your new dinnerware!
    Hope you all have a blessed week!
