Beautiful fountain at Silverton Casino ...
Lost our money but got glory from the pretty falls
We saw the Popovich Pet Show before leaving for Vegas this morning ... and it was good , too! What a wild schedule these snowbirds keep!
We scored tickets to a Rod Stewart Tribute concert last night ... it was rockishly nostalgic ...even Doug and Gordie were smiling (although in Doug's case it might have been because of the beautiful eye candy that accompanied the faux Rod) . HOT LEGS!!!
Leaving Mesquite- Vegas or bust!

20 January 2017

Looks like you all are having a great time!! Love seeing your pics 😊😊

19 January 2017

In Mesquite, we camped the first night at Sun Resort .. walking distance to grocery , casino. It was nice for Gordy and Roxy to open up their unit and "thaw out", and good for all of us to stock up with camping "necessities" . Because there is a hot air balloon festival this weekend , here in Mesquite, there is no vacancies at any of the resorts , so we scored a free dry camping spot in Casablanca casino parking lot ... the balloons will be set up in the lots right beside us ! Fortune smiles upon these snowbirds! Hopefully , she will continue to do so when Doug goes to casino ! ... :)

18 January 2017

4th day ... we are all still talking to each other !!! Snapped this pic of Gordie and Roxy in front of the Casablanca casino in Mesquite Nv

17 January 2017
