Fremont Street

No trip to Vegas is complete without a trip down to Fremont Street.

There were two pretty good bands down there Friday. We almost didn't go because of the weather forecast calling for a 70% chance of rain. One thing I've learned about Vegas is that the weather forecast means little. It never did rain that night.

Even the dogs like Fremont Street. As I normally do, when I take someone's photo I offer them my Flickr card so they can see the photo on my site later. The two ladies on the right in this picture told Karen they wanted to speak to me. They wanted to pay me to photograph them. They asked how much. I asked what was it worth to them? They offered me $100. They were feeling no pain at the time and I knew I couldn't take $100 from them...it wouldn't have been right. We settled on $20. One of the ladies grabbed a vendor's stool for her friend to sit on. The vendor demanded $10 to "rent" the stool to them. Little did I know at the time they only had $14 between the two of them.....So I made $4. Almost enough to buy a beer. But it was fun so I didn't care. Below are a few of the pics I took:

The important thing in this picture is....the beer temp!

By this time mom was REALLY having fun! She wanted her picture taken with James Thunder, a Samoan Boxer. When we firs moved here, Karen had her picture taken with him also.
