Day Tour At Virginia City, Nevada

ALMOST HEAVEN, WEST VIRGINIA....
Yes, we reached Virginia City around noon.... my first visit to this gold mine cowboy town.  John Denver's song Country Roads came to my mind when Virginia is mentioned.  My sister and I did a video stint singing the chorus during our stop at the top of the mountains.  When we listened back to our recording, all we heard was the strong wind blowing our voices away! LOL....

I didn't know what to expect in Virginia... I thought these cowboy towns do not exist anymore... I was wrong, I was told that during the summer, this place was full of tourists from all over the world but while we were there, the place was not crowded at all...

Virginia City... a birthplace of Mark Twain too, I got to know.  The city retains an authentic history character with board sidewalks, and numerous restored buildings dated back to the 1860s and 70s.  I get the feel of being "cowboy-ish" while I was there.... the bars, the sheriff, the wooden plank sidewalks, just like those TV shows like Bonanza, Little House on the Prairie...
The Last School Standing....

Inside the bar....
Here and there and everywhere... along the main road...
No horses in sight... so I "fly"....
Hitch a ride perhaps....

Lastly and not least... 
A visit to Mark Twain museum before we left our footprints in Virginia...

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
