We had dinner at John's Oyster Bar at the Nugget in Sparks, and then Lisa decided to play the Paradise Fishing slot machine, feeding it a $20 bill. On only the second pull (30 cents/pull), she hit a $30 jackpot and called it a night. She kept the $20 and gave me the balance to help pay for dinner.
Then it was over to Whole Foods for our last shot this season at egg nog. (The egg nog sold in the Fernley stores is full of fillers; Whole Foods sells the nice-but-expensive organic stuff that isn't loaded up with guar gum and such.) After that we headed south so I could find a store I'd heard about, and in the process we stumbled upon a World World store. I didn't realize there were any in Nevada. (They told me later than they are the only one in Nevada.) I needed a new pair of slacks because I'd managed to wreck one of the two pairs I brought with me on this trip. I also bought a new heavy work shirt since I'm wearing out all of those I have. Lisa also found good (and American-made) socks.
Lisa noticed that there was a Target store on the far side of the parking lot at this shopping center. This is good because she needed to withdraw cash from the Chase account, and the only Chase ATMs in northern Nevada are at the two Target stores in Reno. (Alas, they're withdrawal-only, so if we need to deposit anything to that account, we'll have to do it by mail or by driving down the Placerville or something like that. Of course, I can deal with such things in the Bay Area while I'm still there.)
The 30-mile trip to Reno is mildly inconvenient, and we'd rather group errands together when we do it, but it's not much different than the distance I've been commuting to work or between Mehama and Salem. It just seems a bit longer because there is not a whole lot between Fernley and Reno/Sparks.
