    Viva Las Pluto...

    He was on his third cocktail at the $100 Black Jack Table... He loved the Mirage... It was elegant without too many classless gimmicks... The rooms were nice and he seemed to always win here...

    He also felt it was the original, the prototypical 3-winger... Since the Mirage was built, it became a architectural template for casino owners... 3-wings so nearly every room has a view... There are also spiritual implications with the number 3... A prime...

    Pluto had 16 showing and the dealer showed a face card... He stared at his two black $100 chips and picked up two more... He doubled-down on a 16... He drew a 5...

    The Dealer smiled and flipped over his other card... A 10 of Hearts... Dealer 20, Plute 21 and $200 richer...

    He loved this place... He was seated in the center of a 5-seat semi-circle when three more men sat down at the same table... Two on his left, downstream, and one on his right...

    The gentlman to his immediate left was talking about a late-night blowjob he'd gotten the night before to a shorter dark-haired man, who looked of Italian decent...

    The guy on his right ordered a gin and tonic from the skirt, and he started a conversation with the Dealer as he was re-shuffling the 6-deck shoe...

    He lifted his drink, winked at the dealer, and said "Call me Nashville friend... That's Fresno and Houston... We just hit town yesterday and me and my Buds are lookin to win big, real big pardner..."

    The Dealer replied, "I'm Bob, good to meet you and good luck..."

    Plute played with his stack and got it lined up as he smiled... "I hope these spankers are'nt loud mouths..." Plute was very reserved... He didn't particularly like loud mouths that much unless the liquior started flowing... Then he was right in the middle...

    Nashville looked at Plute and said "Hi there friend... It looks like you are doing just fine... Where'ya from...?"

    Plute looked over at him and said "I'd rather not say... I am a retired fighter pilot and still have high security clearance... Its probably best if we just stay aliases... You can call me Chesapeake..."

    Nash grinned real big and said "Hey Fresno, we got'us Double Oh Seven sittin here... Better put your sunglasses back on...

    Whacha drinkin Chesapeake...? I'm buyin the next round..."

    Plute said "A glass of Murlot would be good, anything older than 1980 is fine with me, thank you..."

    Fresno said "Hey friend, I have a good buddy up in the Mid-Atlantic... He was a fighter pilot as well, but I have not talked to him in a long time... Big Guy... Loved Asian women... Man, did he have some stories to tell... We met him on the Internet on one of those message boards... He went by the alias Pluto... Hell, I called him a hellofa lot more than that, but he was my amigo deep down..."

    Plute looked at Fresno and said "I'm sure he still thinks about you... Fighter Pilots never forget the details... If they do, they die..."

    The Dealer passed the shoe to Houston who grabbed the first card and put it about 3/4 of the way back in the deck...

    "Let the Game begin..." said Nashville as Bob started goin round the mountain...
