October 12 of 12

Once again, I am at my home away from home (Las Vegas). So my 12 of 12 is from there today. Check out Chad's website to see what everyone else did today.

8:30 am Las Vegas : Leaving my hotel. I though the picture of the contrail going into the sun looked neat.

12:30 pm Las Vegas : Skip forward a few hours, which were spent on Nellis Air Force Base where I couldn't take pictures. Lunch at one of my favorite places, Sammy's! Grilled chicken salad with homemade basil balsamic vinaigrette with feta and walnuts.

4:30 pm Las Vegas : Skip forward another few hours of work where I couldn't take pictures. I spent a lot of time in the car today so this is what I saw a lot. It amazes me that I drove 175 miles today and never left the city limits.

6:20 pm Las Vegas : Watching the sunset before I go meet with someone else.

9:30 pm Bellagio : I finally finished work so I went over to the Bellagio conservatory to see the fall exhibit they had set up. This was a real pumpkin and huge!

9:30 pm Bellagio : "Fantasy Tree" which was made of 420,000 feet of willow branches.

9:30 pm Bellagio : A "working" Venus Fly Trap.

9:30 pm Bellagio : A whole bunch of ornamental peppers.

9:30 pm Bellagio : The Man in the Tree.

9:30 pm Bellagio : Another real HUGE pumpkin.

9:30 pm Bellagio : An even bigger, although slight discolored, pumpkin.

9:30 pm Bellagio : The size of the above pumpkin. Half a ton!

Thanks for joining me today in my endeavors. Only two more months left of 12 of 12 so let's make it two good months!


  1. Whoa... those are some giant pumpkins. The Tree makes me think of the movie "Pan's Labyrinth"

  2. I like the little tour of Vegas! And wow, that's something to drive so far and never leave the city limits...

    Sorry for the late comment – I also posted my 12 of 12 late, doh!
