Best lil Whorehouse in the West...

Hey where is everybody? Hmmmm? I guess I haven't written in my blog in a while so I have no readers...

Anyway... back to my trip to Vegas last week... When I was talking to Gram Pam yesterday I remembered something else about the Luxor hotel room they gave us... The good room in the 'west tower' had a lovely view of the parking lot, drained pool with construction going on, and loud construction being done on the floor above us... Nice huh... Grrrr... We stayed there Sunday to Tuesday so I would guess giving us a nicer room with a nicer view would not have been a problem... I don't know... I will NEVER stay at the Luxor again that is for sure!!!
Back to Monday and the Hoover Dam and Lake Mead... Lake Mead is a man made Lake because of the Hoover Dam being built... Sam and I have always wanted to take the kids on a houseboat vacation on Mead... Sam and I took one on Lake Mojave 20 years ago... Lake Mojave is the man made lake on the other side of the Hoover Dam... and after Lake Mojave down the river is Lake Havasu... where we go in the summer... Did you follow that? Well if ya didn't it doesn't matter anyway because the point of my story is the drought over the last few years in this area of the country!!! Lake Mead is SO low!!! You'll see how low later on in my entries, when Sam and I tried to head to the Grand Canyon but I am getting ahead on my self again...



In this photo of Lake Mead by the Dam we were shocked at how low the water was!!!



This photo really shows how low the Lake is... The white on the walls shows where the water has been!!!


Ok... on to Tuesday... Sam and I headed to Pahrump Nevada because we are
HUGE fans of Art Bell and CoasttoCoastam.com radio... Art Bell started the show about 20 years ago... We have been listening since 1995... "From the Kingdom of Nye... Things that go Pahrump in the night" his show starts at 10pm and ends at 2am... we listen to it as we go to sleep at night... Coasttocoastam.com talks about all the subjects no other radio stations talk about... My favorite is near death experiences... people who have died and come back to talk about it...
I know that sounds weird but it is a really great radio show... Phil the Thrill listens as does Nurse
Pam... I turned her on to it... Lisa Jo if you could listen while at work... you would LOVE it...
Just go to Coasttocoastam.com for a station near you...
OK so anyway... Sam and I drove by Art Bells house in Pahrump Nevada and we took pictures [he broadcast ed for years from his house] but I am not going post them because I wouldn't want someone posting a picture of my house without my permission yanno... if you want to see it... email me and I will send ya a pic...
So Sam and I are driving around Pahrump and what do we see... The Chicken Ranch... I thought it must be a real chicken ranch... Sam laughed at me... "Kendra, its a whorehouse" "No way..."
"Yes... it is" "Oh! Then we HAVE to drive by and take pictures" so we did...
So here ya go...


More stories to come... so ya'all come back now hear!!!

OKAY I'm laughing that you didn't know that The Chicken Ranch was a brothel. You know the restaurant that Lauren worked at was called that. There big sell is chicken, but they found it humorous. I was laughing that my friend's mother had no clue what a brothel was.. she had never heard that word before. I said hell I must be perverted then. How do I know all these words and you don't.. she old enough to be my mom of course in her day you didn't talk of such things.
I'll have to look around for that station sounds interesting.
Take care, Chrissie

Of course, I heard of the Chicken Ranch from the Dolly Parton movie The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas that was based on the real life stories of the one in La Grange.
