Tickets and Chairs

Tickets for the YES show went on sale today, so we made use of our Saturday to get a number of chores done. Put gas in the car; drove down to the Hard Rock Hotel and got excellent tickets (third tier back but dead center at the front of the rail so no one will be in front of us).

Then we drove along Tropicana Ave to an Office Furniture place that sells Herman-Miller Aeron chairs to see if we can get a deal on two of them. They had a couple on display so we got to sit and see which size we liked, and how adjustable we wanted them, but there was a lead time for ordering and we thought we'd look around some more.

At Meadows Mall we camped out at Wolf Camera for an hour or so as they created a set of two Passport photos for me, and then I tried to get some good quality reprints of various photos of sunsets that I've taken over the years. Some of them are pretty good, if I do say so myself, and I've always wanted to blow them up and hang them on the wall.

The technicians were very helpful and tried different lightness settings and colour mixes to ensure that I was happy with the results. This was good, but then they kept mis-identifying the negative numbers until I was as confused as they were. Took a while to get it straightened out.
