Sights in Vegas

Boy we are turning into real city people. We were actually eating dinner in a restaurant at 9:00 last night. Back in Indiana we very seldom were out late. For one thing there was nowhere to go within 25 miles and neither of us liked driving those narrow twisty roads after dark. We’d watched the NASCAR race in the afternoon - #54 – Kyle Busch won the Xfinity race at Indianapolis.
Then we took a ride to Fry’s Electronics to look for TV stands and office furniture. No furniture but did find a couple of TV stands that will work for us. And while there we saw something that just amazed me. Jaw dropping amazement. A TV that cost – get this! - $99,999.00 Yep that is right almost 100,000 dollars. Here is a picture of it. Granted it is big and curved but…$99,999! That kind of money to watch Dating Naked or the Real Housewives.
We took one of the freeways to get there and saw this guy – it’s a really neat metal sculpture.
Several of the interchanges have really nice art work decorating them. Have seen – in metal – burros, horses, goats, all kinds of plants and birds.  Nicer than just rocks or dirt.
And drove a ways down the strip – more show girls and minions. Can you imagine how hot it must be in those minion costumes? 
And lots and lots of people out walking in the 105 degree heat.
When we left the restaurant at 9:30 it was still 100 degrees, but sure didn’t feel as horrid as 90 in Indiana.
Today we of course watched the Brickyard 400 NASCAR race AND Kyle Busch won it! Since coming back from his bad injury he has won four out of the nine Cup races he’s been in. Three in a row.
