Then heading east along hwy 163 the sharp craggy mountains have a quality unlike any I’ve seen elsewhere. I really don’t know what it is. The casual observer would probably think they all look pretty much the same. But to me, there is something that attracts me to them. The sharp edged mountain ridges, the sandy earthen color of the sloping sides dotted with desert ironwood and a few yucca’s and Joshua trees. Views of canyons as the hwy descends over 2,000 feet down to Laughlin and Bullhead City. The Colorado River sparkling blue against the desert scenery.
Went out for breakfast today. I’ve been going to Subway’s as they make a breakfast sandwich out of egg whites. I have them add ham, green peppers and onion and cheese making it basically a Western sandwich. Really good and their Seattle’s Best coffee is great. I asked the guy making my breakfast what his favorite sandwich was. He said he rarely eats there, as he’s been working for them for 6 years and after making all those subs, doesn’t have an appetite for any of them. Did you know they have a veggie patty that’s supposed to be pretty good as well. I do try to eat healthy when I can.
Haven’t gone into the casino’s on the other side of the river in Laughlin. Guess I’m burned out on seeing them all over Nevada in the past month. I’m sure I’ll make it into one of them in the next couple of days.

Is right next to the buffet which is not open for lunch. Which worked to my advantage, as I probably wouldn’t have tried the Aviano as it looks and feels very upscale. What I found is a great place for lunch with prices in the $6.95 range. Wonderful breadsticks, pizza made to order, make your own sandwiches with very fresh ingredients and good service and salad bar. So good I’m going back and trying one of their pasta dishes. I don’t usually talk about restaurants all that much since I often eat at the most average of places. This one was top notch and if you're in the Laughlin area, go a little further and eat at the Avi Casino.
I’ll head to Lake Havasu next then on into Tucson. My final winter destination.
A final shout out to my sister Ann, wishing her many happy years in her new senior apartment. Knowing she’s in a safe comfortable place at senior prices and surrounded by friends, starting a new chapter in her life brings a big smile to my face. Nice to know we can all continue to change and enjoy life no matter what age. PS, I’m two years younger than she is.
