Yesterday was a happy accident.

I was coming home from teaching my Sunday morning voice lesson, when the bus driver came to a rather abrupt stop. It seems driver was given the day’s detour map – that is every driver but him. As I sat there in the idling bus, stuck  in an incredibly narrow street with a very angry bus driver yelling at dispatch and very angry passengers yelling at the driver, I decided no air conditioning in the world was worth that amount of negativity. So I asked to get off the bus.

Who knew that the detour was the Henderson Super Run Car Show? I had a blast walking on Water Street in Downtown Henderson, looking at all the cars and exploring the random vendor booth. It reminded my a little of Hot August Nights. There were all these great cars, some in really amazing condition. I had fun doing something out of the ordinary.

The City of Henderson has special events throughout the year. Check out their events page for more information.

This weekend, I was once again reminded that Vegas isn’t just The Strip. Apparently we have car shows too.

Shadow came to live with me about two years ago when my dad decided retirement was going to be better in Florida. (Crazy, I know.) For the first year, Shadow was calm, cool, and collected. He never did anything sneaky or crazy, never did anything destructive or just plain weird. Then one day – when he thinks I’m not looking – I walk into my room to this…

 

Yes, I know this post officially makes me a crazy cat lady, but I couldn’t resist.
