Memories of 2007
This is another week when I couldn’t think of anything current to write about, so I’m falling back on taking a trip down memory lane. This time, to the year 2007.
Let’s start with some pictures of places I went.
The picture above was taken on a Mexican Riviera cruise. Behind us is Acapulco.
On that same cruise I had the pleasure to play and beat magician Shawn Farquhar at chess. By the way, I have also beaten author David Guterson.
My friend Kathy was kind enough to show me around some non-gambling-related sites in Macau. Here we are at a Buddhist temple, whose name I forgot.
I took a family trip to Maui. Here I am at the Garden of Eden Arboretum, on my second attempt to drive the entire road to Hana. I failed that time too. Dinking around at every site along the way, like I do, doesn’t help one’s chances. Neither does traveling with people who get carsick. Hopefully, whenever I got back, the third time will be the charm.
Did you know the longest moving walkway (is that the right term?) in the world, is in Hong Kong. Here I am juggling oranges on it. Nobody seemed impressed.
Here I am on a family trip to Death Valley, at the lowest point in the United States.
Here I am taking a sailing lesson off the coast of Vashon Island, Washington.
One of my goals is to visit all 50 states. I crossed Idaho off my
As of this writing, in 2021, the only state left is North Dakota.
Here I am next to a very large wagon in Spokane, Washington. The handle is a slide.
Now, onto the pictures you really want, of me with Playboy Bunnies.
I had the pleasure of being invited to a Superbowl party at the old
Playboy Club at the
Palms. It was
pleasantly replete with Bunnies.
I won a lot of money on prop bets too – what a great day!
Thanks for joining me on this trip to 2007. I hope to see you when I visit 2008 in a newsletter coming soon.
