Then I was off for a brand new experience. Touring the town. Getting attention from roadside workers. There really were some who even waved as though they were aware that we were having a joyride.
Now what Grandma Neta (me) was really proud of. Pete, that’s who. I’ve written about Pete before. How he astounded me with his counting twenty dollar bills I had received from the bank. He asked me if he could count my money. I said yes and passed him the 10 twenties. I expected him to count one, two, three…to ten. Instead he counted 20, 40, 60, to 200. https://onetahayes.com/2016/06/16/saying-good-bye-to-my-pete-the-younger-version/
I am delighted to tell you his “math” sense has paid off very well as he has made quite a bit of money in investments. At least enough to purchase this vehicle, a Mercedes G Class, and paid cash all by himself at 24 years old. He has done it diligently staying at his laptop for hours in order to get the big payoffs.
CONGRATULATIONS, PETE. I’M PROUD OF YOU.
