An Evening Out

Tracy and I had planned on a trip to the strip sometime during the week while he is on vacation. Well last night after a early dinner we decided that since it had cooled off some we would go see a couple of the free shows that had changed since we moved here.

First was the Pirate Show at TI (formally Treasure Island).
Sorry the picture is sooooooo dark but this is the Pirate Ship for the "Sirens". I really don't like the way they changed this show 8o( It was much better the way it was with the Pirates fighting the Brits. Now it's a bunch of "Sirens" against the Pirates and a little risque for the kids that come to watch. The humor is a little off color, guess I must be becoming a prude in my old age.


Inside the front door at TI this motorcycle sits. It was designed and built as a tribute to the "Sirens". To say it is awesome would be a understatement. You don't have to be a lover of motorcycles to appreciate the details that went into this. You could spend a hour just looking at all the details.
Next we moved down the strip to see the new Volcano at the Mirage. They totally redid the volcano and added more FIRE. Now this wasn't as disappointing.

Again sorry about the picture being so dark but you get the idea of the Volcano erupting with steam and fire coming out the top and running down the sides. There is water surrounding the mountain and it has fire coming out the the water too. This is all done with the sounds of birds and drums in the background. It was as good or better than what they did before the changes.
OK, OK everyone said they wanted to see the new hair do from the front. You won't see many pictures of me (I hate having my picture taken) but here I am at the Volcano.



By this time it was getting late so instead of staying out any later we headed for home and decided to go to the little local casino for breakfast (I was hungry again). We decided to put a few pennies in the slots and lucky Tracy walked out ahead by $60 (I only lost $5).
Well that was our evening out and now today is laundry day with some stitching time between loads. Not sure what the rest of the week will bring but I'm sure we'll go out again.
Until Next Time.....Happy Stitching

Beautiful! Better watch out...they might want you to audition for one of the 'sirens' LOL I bet it's much nicer having it short in all that heat.

Love the haircut. It should be a lot easier to manage. Sounds like you had a lovely time on the strip. Laundry isn't to bad if you have lots of time for stitching LOL.
