Another day of relaxation

Another day of relaxation in Las Vegas.  Last night Jag cooked a scrumptious Jamaican jerked chicken for dinner.  He fooled me: I thought it would be curry.  I made the salad and, later, did the dishes.  Tonight he will barbecue steaks.  Our friends really appreciate the help.  They have both been so ill.  Baba has recovered fairly well, but Clara is still very weak from the partial loss of one lung and the chemotherapy.  We are only too happy to give them a break, even if it is only for these couple of days.  It breaks some of the monotony of being homebound (except for medical appointments).

We leave for the Los Angeles area in the morning.

  It is not my favorite place on earth, but I love my family and it will be great to see them all.  The drive from Las Vegas is rather boring.  The desert here is not as beautiful as the Sonoran Desert near Tucson.  Perhaps that is because of the human cultural variety of that area, as well as the different and more abundant plants and animals.  Of course Tucson does not have Zzyzx Road!  Some day I would really like to find out where that leads.

Clara and Baba's son, Phil, came over to join us for dinner.  He is a really sweet guy.  The gentlemen barbecued some really good steaks, so it was a really terrific meal.  I did the salad again, but Jag and Baba did everything else.  Baba is very delighted by how Jag cooks mushrooms.  He really wants to learn the secret.

I could not figure out how to upload photos from my camera to the computer I am using.  I will try again tomorrow.  My niece is computer savvy and may be able to help me with that.  There are not many pix, but I really would like to make this a bit more colorful.  Perhaps I should type this in rainbow colors ... Nah!
