If you have portable restroom, you had better have a portable sign.

The chocolate factory was all shut down for the day. I guess they stop at 1 pm. They grow all their own ingredients here in this garden

Suppose to be a world famous garden. They say the reason they planted the garden is that the owner of the factory wanted a garden. I am touched by their deeply profound reasoning.

This cactus looks like it is covered in snow, but it is 96 degrees out here.

The Joshua trees are in bloom.  These can only be found in one place in the entire world. Joshua Tree National forest in California. Don’t tell the forest service, but there have been sightings of these things in at least five of the Southwestern States.  Today’s paper told us they are blooming this year due to unseasonable hot dry weather, and honey bees are nearly extinct because 60% of them froze to death due to record cold this year.  I think our scientist, have got to have a meeting before speaking to reporters!

Solar panels used by the chocolate factory – something about being green. Looks Rather Blue to me

We felt the call of the wild and went to Sam’s town. Dang their Western Wear is expensive! I guess leather is hard to come by. We only found one bear and a mangy old wolf.

Well it is time to continue our search for M&M World, and get some of those almond M&M’s

Speaking of puke, all that fun made us hungry.  $20.00 bought us enough pizza to feel like stuffed pigs. You can’t get cheaper, quality food, than at the pizzeria in Circus Circus

We are crazy lost trying not to walk on the street in order to avoid getting the free baseball cards featuring nine of our favorite players in the buff.  I love this bike though. I have to get Martin and Randy together to build one for me.

This cant be good! M&M world is in Las Vegas, but this land mark is in Paris!

Shoot, we were lost in Paris for nearly two hours. The French are a bunch of crooks! No water fountains to drink from. We finally gave up and bought a bottle of water for $5.00 Darin was getting ill from being drug from country to country. Now, we are stuck in Venice!

Just as I thought, our luck was not improving! Athena led us straight in to wonderland. Somehow I think she is related to the queen of hearts!

Still lost, we wonder through the Belagio, the Cosmopolitan, and the Aria hotels, and no sign of the M&M’s. Sure wish our normal parking structure had not been closed!

Now get this; we are in the middle of Aria hotel. Athena and the girls go to the privy. I am left out in the hall where I discover this pond with pillars of ice rising out of it. While shooting photos of this thing wondering if it is real, four young people enter the area. One has the same question as me and puts his hand in the pond. He confirmed the water was cold and jumped back getting water everywhere and runs to keep up with his lady friends who are goofing off in a dress shop containing only three mannequins.  The cleaning lady shows up with a towel and begins cleaning the water up as quickly as it had hit the floor. While she was cleaning the water up she hears the crash and the screams that I heard coming from the dress shop. When I looked up, there was a mannequin in hundreds of pieces as if it were glass spread about the floor. The young ladies left in a rather urgent manner. I am not sure how a shop that only had three dresses for sale stays in business, but now, the shop only has two dresses. It is very sad, that the ladies did not stop and help the shop owner clean up the mess, and offer to pay for the damages.  Well, I guess this must be what it is like to live in a big city. Thank God I am a country boy!

Well the clock is not our friend! It is getting later, I am having a tougher and tougher time getting around, but I think we are getting closer to the M&M’s

We found it, the M&M’s are just past the coke bottle! Holly was finally able to buy her coveted M’s. Athena and I could not care less about them at this point.  Fortunately for only $20.00 we were able to catch the Monorail to the Stratosphere which is only a few blocks from where we left our car at Circus Circus.

You can go to the strip club for free! If you find the love of your life there you can get married in the same parking lot as the strip club.

In search of  M&M World, Las Vegas Nevada | Rolling Shoe Box, April 16, 2013// < ![CDATA[

If matrimony does not do it for you can always jump off the Stratosphere, providing you have enough cash..

One trip to the strip is enough to make just about anyone want to jump off the Stratosphere, but here are a few tips.

You don’t need to gamble to blow your wad!

Bring water! If your like me and need about 4 bottles of water per hour, that is $20.00 an hour! So bring water, and lots of  water.

Some people have very poor judgement and try to get carnal with superheros in broad daylight. Stay indoors if you can, the hotels seem to discourage this sort of thing.

If you have kids go before noon, or limit your Vegas experience to Circus Circus.. People are much more verbose with their lewd behavior than they were a year ago.

Too bad the strip is so uncouth, all the activity and lights are kind of cool

We probably will not be doing any further reviews of the Strip in future years, due to the current trends (Gay weeks are April 22 – may 7, and 9/6 and 7, 2013)

Lastly if Almond M&M’s are all that you want, you can get them at Ethel M’s for the same price as the M&M store.

Good Evening and Good Night…
