    Continuing with this thread as my trip report...

    Today, I umpired a baseball game in Aruba. This is my third year doing this, but the first time I brought all my gear and I umpired the plate tonight.

    It was a Senior Little League game that had a few of the kids from the Aruba team that played at the Little League World Series when I umpired in Williamsport three years ago.

    I hope to be able to do a few more games over the course this week and next.

    OK, an update to my ongoing trip report.....

    Happily, I report more of the same! Amazingly, I did hit another royal flush playing video poker -- this time for $12,000 at The Hyatt!

    I umpired another baseball game.

    Half-way through my 21st Aruba vacation, I am enjoying this immensely -- as always!

    I am smiling thinking to myself about the Aruba Stories and reading of people's water sports and dining adventures.....but in this case it all all about the "royal flush" and the mathematics of if it could happen again !
    I love the fact too that Rumpire is umping some local games.
