I'm sick again

Guess that trip to LV was too much for me. I really deteriorated Friday, and the trip back home on Saturday was VERY LONG. I tried to give her a nice experience, but the germs didn't cooporate. I'll try again next year.

Donna's Birthday

In two days Donna turns 58! We've been planning a trip to Las Vegas to celebrate her birthday, but she was sick a week a go, and this week I caught her bug. Although I'm still puny, we forged ahead and came to the bright lights of sin city.

We arrived yesterday afternoon and spent a few hours in an outlet mall near our hotel. The goal was for Donna to get some replacement shirts for her aging wardrobe. She found nothing!

Today we visited a couple more shopping areas and she did find one shirt!! I started to poop out, so we are now back at the hotel, reading books. When you get to a certain age, birthdays are not as exciting as they used to be. We tried.

Here's a picture of Donna at the Claimjumper (Las Vegas) in the Town Square Shopping Center.

Is an RV Search Next?

An interesting thing happened today at work.

Next week there will be an inspection of the property to support acceptance of Forever Resorts into an ISO and OHSAS compliance program. This is something that Forever wants and would be a significant step in showing the world that Forever is dedicated to the safety of the employee and the protection of the environment.

The interesting (and disturbing) thing is that our lockers at work (I know - it's Forever property) were searched without our knowledge and we were told we could not have hand cream or sanitizer solution within. So, we had to remove those products and take them home. We sell hand cream at the store. Do you think it would be ok to have that cream in our lockers???? Apparently not.

This bothers me. Will they search our rv next?

Job Extension

Looks like we're staying on the job until October 10. Donna has accepted a Lead position and has promised to work until then. It's a little later than we had planned - maybe the snow will wait!

Cape Royal Storm

Today was a day off for us. We had our normal breakfast at Jacob's Lake Inn - very good. Then it was on to Kanab for groceries. On the way back we encountered some heavy rain showers (normal for this time of the year). It began to look like viewing the Canyon might be interesting. So, a short detour to Cape Royal gave us some of the most colorful views yet. Take a look at the latest on our SmugMug site.

BookCrossing.com

Just came across a free service for readers. www.bookcrossing.com

It's a very interesting concept - read a book, then release it to the wild. Record the information on it's release and then track it's journey. Kind of like - "Where's George" for the dollar bill.

I've set up an account and have registered all the books we have yet to read - quite a pile! Our user name is "sshaff" if you'd like to take a look.
