The Las Vegas Tour... & PhDs...

First I have to say, we couldn't believe how much of our snow had melted while we were gone!!! A healthy 18" plus (40-50cm) deep of snow disappeared in our back yard, and we now see a lot of our brownish grass... Evidence of our "under the deck rabbits" around too... 8-)
Dog walking weather! Woohoo! 8-)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The Tour Van... et moi, with first purchase of eye candy... 8-)
I highly recommend doing this tour when you are in Vegas!
Here is the link with the info for the tour...
Here is the page (on the tour info site) with the links to the 5 shops we visited...

Our tour gal/owner, Susan, is a lovely lady.
You can read how this tour came to be.
Susan explained what shop was next as we traveled, and what we could look forward to seeing there, as well as other interesting tidbits around Vegas.

Each shop gave a discount because you are on "the tour", and a few gave coupons for Susan to pass on to us before entering their shops, for even more discounts. We even received little gifts from a couple of the shop owners upon entering their shops too... 8-)

Lunch was also part of the tour. Susan treated us with a lovely lunch at specialty a Soup and Salad restaurant. Yum!!! 8-)Also on the tour with friend Wk and I, was Judy from...?... San Diego? I think it was - W will correct me... if she can remember...lol! Judy goes to Vegas every year, has for years, to meet up with her college friends for a week, and she always takes in the tour with Susan.
We met Vonda, from Maple Creek Saskatchewan. She has been to Vegas numerous times, and always tours with Susan when there also. Vonda owns the Cat's Meow Quilts & Gifts shop in Saskatchewan. I shall have to check that out if ever I am out that way...
Lovely ladies to spend the day with! 8-)

More tomorrow!
Myra

PS: Now, has anyone finished up some more PhDs while I was gone? Please let me know... 8-)

Is it safe to say, "Stella (oops, I mean, Myra) got her grove back"? It looks like the holiday was just what you needed to recharge. welcome home.

I have a few more to cross off, I sort of want to wait and tell you about it until one more that is SO SO SO close to done is done.

Wish I had known about this tour when we were in Vegas. I don't know that I would have had time but maybe I could have made time.
