Halloween!

Halloween!

The SEMA SHOW oened on Halloween, 2006! But this picture was taken on June 24, 2003. NO! We're kidding! The shot was taken at the "Fremont Street Experience" (they put a roof over Fremont Street and show a fairly interesting film up there every hour on the hour; the show lasts about 5 minutes). And it was taken on Halloween! About that 'roof' ... Many people know the tall, neon cowboy on the side of the one of the big and older downtown gambling houses, who waves his arm up and down and says "Howdy, Pardner!" ... Well, he's been replaced by a new cowboy and the loudspeakers are gone and so is, if I remember right, the waving. Or, sure, it's perfgect and the neon is bright and new and all that --- But we have 8mm home movies which my father shot of that very cowboy in 1961, waving his arm and lookg grand. The original is still better -- Hey! Maybe we'll use that clip of the old cowboy on the 'CAR NUT TV' segments about the SEMA SHOW!
