Sunrise thru the Market House: Fayetteville NC

With a shift of the earth or something that I can’t explain. One can see the Sun Rise at the Downtown Market House in Fayetteville, NC. This phenomena happens twice a year. Once in January and in November.

I read about it on the Fayetteville Observer. But since I leave in town, I was not motivated enough to drag myself early in the morning and take pictures of it. Well this time, I decided to go downtown and take a picture of the Sunrise going thru Fayetteville Market House. I am so glad I did.

Hong Kong

I always been wanting to go to Hong Kong. So when an opportunity came up. I went. Your only young once. Of course have to take my camera with me. What I find out quickly. This city is not camera friendly. Have several times approach by a security agent saying no pictures here.

Can’t understand why they feel that way. So I took some pictures where I can. Not sure I want to go back.

One of Those Day’s

I was sitting  in my favorite bar one day and noticed sitting across me is a man who seem to be in a very bad mood contemplating drinking his drink.  Just as he lift the glass to drink the content.  A guy came from nowere took the drink off his hand and drunk it for him and began laughing.  Hahahahaha that was good he said.

Well the man was in disbelief.  He didn’t know what to say and start sobbing. Man felt bad for him and told him, if he felt that bad about it.  He can order any drink on the bar and he’d pay for it.  Well he thank the man for the offer.  While drinking his new drink.  He told him,   Well its’ been one of those days he said.  He start telling this man who drunk his drink.  That today his dog got run over which made him very sad.  Then he went to work and his Boss told him, he was laid off.  So he went home, only to find his wife run off with the Gardner.

So he said I came to this bar about to drink this glass of poison to take my own life  when you drink it for me.

If Price is No Object.

DSC_0034, originally uploaded by rabano9196.

While on Vacation in Vegas this yr. (7-24-09). Its’ a good thing that there are more to do than hang out the Casino’s and Hotel. Of course the accommodation were we stayed was excellent. But going to Vegas, you don’t spend your time in the hotel.

After a good night’s rest from the night before. We want to see the rest of Vegas have to offer. So we took a taxi from Mandalay Bay to the Bellagio which is a walking distance to Caesars Palace. As we walk around and look at the shops. I’m amaze at the number of people going thru these shops like you see people going to Walmart. Just a figure of speech cause they were allot of people going thru.

Just have to give people credit for those people that Price is No Object. Vegas Shops definitely have something for them. Even though I didn’t have the money to spend on the blings, and the clothes. It was fun going thru the shops. PEACE

Las Vegas Trip

DSC_0095, originally uploaded by rabano9196.

Still remember going to Las Vegas. We left our office to catch our flight using US Air. Friday July 24-09. Leaving our town was the easy part. Its’ only a 2 stop flight to Vegas. 1st stop is in Atlanta made it in less than 2hrs. When the plane touch down. I was already in a party mode. The flight from our home to Vegas is only a 6hr flight.

Arriving in Atlanta Airport gave us plenty of time to sit and look at the terminal site. As the time goes by waiting for us to board. Our flight was delayed. 2hrs waiting and the flight later was cancelled.

So all the passengers on our flight going to Vegas was told of this and the one’s who heard this. Rush to the terminal to catch the available plain out to Vegas. So in the terminal we wait and wait. The lines were long and took a minimum 1hr. per customer to get a connection flight to Vegas.

Its’ now 5hrs. since our flight was cancelled in line for a connection to Vegas. As we wait for our tern to talk to the attendants. Which there were only 3 agents taking care of hundreds waiting to get there turn to get schedule for the next flight to Vegas. 2 of the front agent decided to take a break. While we wait there on line waiting.

If your’ reading this blog, you probably get the idea that it is a nightmare stranded in the airport waiting for your connecting flight.
But, thank goodness we finally made it to Vegas. We only have 4 nights. And the magic of Vegas make me forget what it took to get there.
