Dawn Out of town

So it’s a week with the wife out of town, this time its Thailand with her sister. It was suppose to be with our daughter till Alex broke her foot. The holiday tip was a birthday trip for both of them but that changed real fast.

So I was not looking forward to this week as I had the grandson to take to school and pick up at the end of his day while trying to work. Withe his mom breaking her foot now I have 2 people and a dog to deal with. It’s not a bad thing having Alex at the house its been a while since she has spent any time at home. Just going a little stir crazy being in the house so much.

Dawn and Joyce look like they are having a great time, playing with the elephants is got me so jealous but the flight took ms of a day to get there. The photo’s I am seeing look awesome.

Putting the win back in Winnamucca

Spending the weekend in the wonderful ( sarcastic ) Winnamucca,NV had a job to do out here ( 180 miles from Reno ) and it was a good excuse to get out of town. This time of the year in Reno we have Hot August Nights,and the tourist traffic is just the worst. We have done this from time to time before and it was mostly a good time.

Hotel Lobby Photos

The Model T hotel was a good place to stay and the slots were not to bad, you an walk the whole town in 30 mins so it was a good place to start. Then some large chain bought them and it went down hill from there. This time we are staying at the Winners Casino ( 2nd time I think ) Its been here for what seems 100 + years.

Side street

The last few times we have come to Winnamucca the gaming and slots have not been so nice, not that I want to go home rich it would just be nice to win enough to keep playing. So far Winners Casino slots have not been so good,it Friday and the weekend is just getting started so lets keep a open mind.

Friday night cam and went and besides drinking to much it was a bust as for gambling, from the Model T to the Winners inn they took us. It was so bad that we decided to come home on Saturday instead of Sunday.

Maybe next time Winnamucca……

Off to see Hugh Jackman

So the wife got us tickets to see Hugh Jackman one man show in Vegas this weekend. I love him as a actor and have seen bits and pieces of some of his shows where he is dancing and singing.

Got to Las Vegas late on Friday night, I was surprised I stayed up so late 1am is way past my bedtime. Vegas temperature around this time of year 110F during the day so you want to avoid going outside for long.

The trip was a good time and I came home with money in my pocket,my son had to driver back home ( 4 hours ) with a nasty hangover…lol.

Day of medical testing

So today was the day I had set up for my heart checking, I was not looking forward to this day for a few reason. One no food no coffee and no nicotine for 12 hours up to the test. Now this would show a very stressed Eric then normal but not the way I live everyday. Why don’t they test people how they are at the end of a regular “Monday”.

With that question out there the testing from 8 am to 1 pm was not a bad as I thought it was going to be. They moved the times around so I could get it everything done at once ,being diabetic its’s been a long time since I went that long without food.

I went to Northern Nevada Medical Center for the testing thinking this might be a “cheaper” alternative to Renown Reno. The staff at NNMC has always been the best when it comes to service and attentiveness. Its a smaller hospital then Renown.

Now comes the issue I have with the billing departments I think they hired people that used to work in the KGB. They are so aggressive It almost makes me want to go some where else.
