PATRICKS BIRTHDAY

Today was my 74th birthday.  Never ever thought about getting to that age.   Maybe I am getting old enough now to know better.  We went to a casino for awhile this afternoon and then had a nice dinner at a local spot we like.  Below are the pictures for the day.

This is a shot of the full moon when I went out this morning to get the paper.  The plant on the left of the picture is the Ocotillo cactus in the front of house and the one on the right is the Bougainvillea bush.  You can't see it in the picture, but the Ocotillo is starting to bloom.  It has pretty red flowers. 


Here is a little closer shot of the moon.


Sun just starting to come up.  The white streak is a con trail from a jet liner heading east.


Sun just starting to hit the mountains on the other side of the lake.


Sun is up and bright as ever.  The two black things in the upper part of the picture are Pigeons.


This is the casino we visited.  It is the Blue Water and is near Parker AZ.  It is located right on the Colorado river.   It was not a profitable visit.


This is the place where we ate this evening.  That's me in the middle of the picture.
