    Andrea, as always, you come up with something "Excellent," such as what you wrote re the garbage truck. You are right, "Just smile, wave, wish them well, and move on.""

    nikko where did your mom and aunt decide to stay?
    you were aiming at booking them into divi or tamarijn right?
    or holiday inn?

    i hope they will relay some thoughts to you and you can throw together an mom and aunt aruba trip report.

    again, i think it is excellent that you pulled it all together and they are off!!

    well here is the beginning...they get to the airport....after finally convincing them that YES this is a international flight(did the usa take over aruba and NOT tell me???LOL) and they need more than 1 hour before their flight.....they get there....i spent two days telling my mom....please do not book my aunts flight without having her passport in front of you....yes mom they are THAT particular and they kinda want all the info to be exactly as it appears on the passport....well what the he// do i know....nope she did it anyway...not only did she get my aunts info wrong....SHE GOT HER OWN WRONG!!!!(herding wild, ferel cats here!!) they get it all straightened out and off they go to security.....my mom goes thru and is shocked that after all she heard about scanners...they didnt have any. then my aunt goes....she gives them her card saying she has had knee replacement and hip replacement....she goes thru and they start checking her....she gets escorted to a private area and it begins....SHE HAD HIDDEN MONEY BELTS STRAPPED TO DIFFERENT PARTS OF HER BODY!!!!!!! THEY DID A FULLLLLL SEARCH. neither my mom or aunt could understand.....she had the card!!!! lol

    GOD BLESS YOU ARUBA....YOU ARE GONNA NEED IT!!!!!lololololol

    ANDREA...THEY ENDED UP IN A GOLF VILLA AT THE DIVI....SEEMS MY COUSIN HAD A VILLA THERE.

    predictions for you mom and aunt.............
    (i am assuming they are single ladies, but maybe i am wrong)
    they will hook up with some wealthy handsome gentleman, will call you and say "sayonnara".........we are staying and marrying these wealthy handsome men from wonderful aruba.

    or
    they will have a blast, come home exhilirated and are so grateful they send you and your hubby to aruba as a gift.
