This morning I went over and aerated the lawn at the house on 11th Ave, then I went to Fresno and watched the Fresno Grizzlies play an afternoon game. You got in free to the game if you parked in certain lots.
So what's this got to do with Karl? Years ago on a visit to Denver, Karl showed me this tool you use to put holes in your lawn so the water gets down deeper etc. I've seen him use it several times. I was fascinated and I knew I wanted that thing. Now Karl had just about one of any kind of tool you could ever want but that was the one I never forgot. When it came time to move them out here, I made sure the aerator was coming west. It's about 3 feet long with handle bars and a place for your foot, with one tube on each side of your foot that you push into the lawn repetatively and the plugs come out the top. While I am walking around the yard making plugs of dirt, I got to thinking of Karl.
Karl was also a big fan of the Triple A baseball teams in Denver. He went for years to see the Bears and Zephyrs play. This was before the Rockies came into existence. He would tell stories of the guys he knew at Mile High who would get him the "good" seats because he was a "Senior" and had a hard time walking. So naturally while I'm sitting there watching this Triple A baseball game, I thought of Karl. He would have been pleased with me. I think the only things that would have made the day better for him would have been a nap and a trip to the Kings Table Buffet. This day was for you Karl.

Red Rock Resort is about 15-20 miles off strip. We really like it there. I always wanted to take a picture of the fountain. I just like it. It is a beautiful contemporary place to stay.
We love the mountain views.
I have many more pics but this is all I have time to share from this Vegas trip.
We did enjoy a wonderful Randy Travis concert and many other fun things that I did not take pictures of.
Hope you enjoyed a little bit of Vegas that you don't always get a chance to see if you just stay on The Strip.
