    Las Vegas and Boulder City

    by crummey Written Feb 24, 2006

    30 miles in any direction of Las Vegas is a thick pall of smog. The smog carpets the desert floor. Las Vegas is 1 000 000 plus people. Who knew?

    Where we are working too we can see the smog build up throughout the day. There are dark black mountains scattered around like marbles. And the Mojave desert is to our north, south, east and west. And Boulder City should be a desert too. However, water is piped in from the Colorado river to make it a lush, green oasis-like municipality. And here we are in the middle of it, working longish hoursbuilding a golf cart maintinence shop in the June sun.

    Around us are some naturally growing tumbleweeds and joshua trees. I guarantee you that man has no use fior joshua trees. Because if there was a use for them, then they would have been all chopped down a long time ago. But they are still dotting the landscape.

    The tumble weeds and the joshua trees aside, everything else is contrived. the ponds wiith the catfish and the goldfish are contrived. The palm trees are contrived and the grass too. Under the ground are vast sprinkler networks that come too at 5 am to water the greenery. The automatic watering is followed by legions of labourers -some legal, some illegal. They cut and trim and rake and leave at 10.

    Wew should simply package and sell the desert. Maybe mix it with some cat nip. And sell it as kitty litter. If we could get a big contract, say the SPCA or Walmart then we would be styling.

    I also thought about bringing a couple of cactus back to Canada. But I decided against it. Because I aknow that there are already alot of pricks there.
