Potluck and Christmas Lights at Ethel M's Cactus Garden

13-17 December 2018

Our good friends, Ernie and Alinda,from Oregon whom we have known since 1990 were in town for the Rodeo Finals staying at an RV park south of town. We invited them for lunch at the Bagel Cafe on Buffalo, one of our favorite places for lunch. They seemed impressed and enjoyed the lunch, taking leftovers home for dinner and a stop by the decadent dessert area for evening treat. It took all our willpower to pass as we are both on low-carb and low sugar diet..John for his type 2 diabetes and I to loose weight. We will meet up with them 1 and 2 March in Wickenberg  on our way to Tucson.

Invited Alinda and Ernie to the campground for our Circle 1 potluck and to take a tour of Nellis AFB. A group of us gather every year and this was one of several potlucks in the coming months. There was a long table of food, all very good. So glad you could join us. Wish you could have stayed longer for more touring of the area.

Alinda made us a beautiful Christmas Wreath. Thank you, dear friend.

Tonight we went with Joy and Kevin to the Ethel M's Chocolate Factory and Cactus Garden Christmas Lighting display in Henderson. On the way we stopped at Freddy's in Henderson for dinner. John and I couldn't resist the custard for dessert.

The display consists of over 500,000 lights and 300 different displays. Worth the visit if you live in LV or just visiting at Christmas.

Toured the factory after walking around the display and stopped in gift shop for a purchase. Had never heard of this candy brand before. The company was founded in1981 in Henderson by Forrest Mars Sr used his mother's (Ethel Mars) recipe. Got some milk chocolate dipped cherries..no sugar added. Check out their website at ethelm.com.

Thank you Kevin and Joy for showing us another part of Las Vegas. Probably would never have found it. Also for taking us to the Raceway Christmas lights and Bellagio Christmas display..especially since we don't drive at night. We enjoy your company and, of course, walking Shylo when you are working in the office.
