About 5 years ago, my mom made the offhand comment to Pete that she would take him to Las Vegas for his 21st birthday.
Five years later, she was good to her word. This is the two of them in the lounge of the hotel/resort/casino Aria.
The two of them spent four nights in Vegas before she headed home and he headed to San Francisco to visit his friend Zack Moore.
Pete told me he didn’t have much money to his name after working a minimum wage internship this summer, but somehow he managed to find enough money to play table games. From his Twitter account it sounds as if it started badly.
before a late rally.
My retirement plans hope he’s right.
Oh, here’s his photo from the Marin Highlands looking back through the Golden gate to San Francisco (with a little photo editing by me).
