    Just had breakfast in Siegals again just having a beer before going for a walk. Something else I witnessed yesterday was in McDonald's in the D, I was sitting there and a couple who had certainly had a few came stumbling by.

    They exited through the door that goes to the street, he opens the door and goes through as he leads his girlfriend through the door he lets go of the door and she makes no attempt to stop it closing. Well she did stop it closing though using her head.

    It's cold and windy today, been in the D and now in DTG, this might turn in to a tour at this rate.

    Not so many, there was 3 construction workers there though, they weren't drinking though. After there was Golden Nugget and then on to Golden Gate. Currently in 4Q.

    After 4Q yesterday I went to the D for a drink then went for a nap, had a quiet night in Cortez. This is pretty much a chilling trip been doing 50 hour weeks since Sept so that's why I wanted this trip. Going to hit the Strip later and have a good walk around.

    Seen this on Fremont St the other day.

    We were at DTG yesterday afternoon and it was surprisingly busy...I'd never seen it as hopping before. It was nice to see.

    Started with a chicken sandwich at Siegals, got Lyft down to Mirage. One of the songs playing during the journey was Walking on Air which was the theme to the tv show Greatest American Hero that I use to watch as a kid. I have shocking news as well, I hope you are sitting down for this. The tram between Mirage and Treasure Island is..............

    I used to watch the show, it was on in the UK on a Saturday lunch time. I liked all the Steven J Cannell shows

    The A Team
    Hunter
    Hardcastle and McCormick
    Simon and Simon
    Riptide

    I know he did a lot more but them ones stick in my mind.

    Some good shows to grow up with. As a teen, I wanted a Dodge Power Wagon just like the one Rick Simon drove.

    I know a bit off topic but a few hours ago I did a YouTube search and found the song and a great video. The official name of the song is "Believe it or Not". I kid you not I have played this 20+ times since my last post, including while walking a mile+ from PT within the past hour. Enjoy. The song is so happy and uplifting! It's a great workout song too!

    Okay, back to your trip!

    I think I started with the off topic so that's ok, all I think of with that song is the open credits of the show with William Katt trying to fly straight. I was in Tilted Kilt earlier then had a walk around Miricle Mile shops before having a beer in PBR bar, currently in Paris.

    The world of concrete is in town, everything you wanted to know about concrete but were afraid to ask.

    Just in Tuscany having a beer, previously been in Tilted Kilt and O'Sheas. Will probably pop next door to Platinum before heading back Downtown.
