    Yesterday I spent a couple of hours at the pool. The trade winds were nice, weather nice. Ms Daisy loves the hot whirlpool. I can't say I blame her. Sometimes I feel sore in my legs and it helps.

    Dinner was at MJs. My plan was to order the almond grouper for me and rack of lamb for Ms Daisy. Then I thought, it's our last night so we can't do anything with left overs. So I ordered the rack of lamb to share. They charge you $7 to share but really they are not charging you. I say this because the sides are $7 and you get your own side when sharing so that's fair. The lamb were huge portions and people could not stop staring saying wow that looks so good. One lady said so you both ordered the same entry? I said no we are sharing. She said both plates is 1 serving? I said that's right. Now I've had lamb chops at chalete suisse and Quinta De Carmen but these were the best! Kudos to chef Kashi!

    Besides the food at Mjs they have great bartenders. I've ordered Manhattan's, old fashion martinis and they were perfect every time in large martini glasses.

    Next was the Glitz Casino. In May Ms Daisy returned home with all her money so she broke even. This trip she lost half the money she brought to play with but had a lot of fun. It was 1am and she was still playing. Thank God the flight leaves at 530pm today and I have the room until tomorrow so I can check out whenever. I will probably leave at 2pm to be at airport by 230pm.

    Will finalize trip when I get home. Have a great day all!

    glad that you get the full morning and the early part of the afternoon. i am betting the airport will be busy.

    MJs lamb is always a hit with many. My husband loves it too.

    This morning we had breakfast at Islander Grill. It was 1030am and all of a sudden there was a heavy down pour which lasted 10 minutes. Then suddenly, the sun came out bright as ever.

    I checked out at 130pm and at airport by 145pm for a 530pm flight. Jet blue line was short but I saw a line for mint which I forgot I was flying mint so I went straight to counter. The other airlines had ling lines. Check in took 5 minutes but I waited 10 minutes for wheel chair assistance and no one showed up. The gentleman that checked us in said that was inexcusable especially for mint service. I said well we are really early so no worries. He said no our mint service reputation is at stake so he decided to wheel Ms Daisy himself. There were long lines at Aruba and US security, customs but with wheel chair service we zipped right bye everyone. The whole process took 20 minutes.
    I have a lot of time to kill so I will probably stop bye the one happy bar. Looking forward to my flight home on Jet Blue Mint. The chair turns flat into a bed plus you get a meal, drinks etc. I purchased the ticket at 1/3 price and it will be a good and comfortable experience for Ms Daisy.

    Hung out at Happy Bar as usual. They make really good Panniers, hot dogs and drinks. I know one of the bartenders who is a DJ at the Renaissance Resorts Fridays and Sundays. A really nice guy and funny as hell. He likes to tease the customers and I help him sometimes. I go there for some Balashi and a shot of Cuban rum. I don't take Ms Daisy with me but keep track of time. The bartender I know is married to a Cuban women who is actually an ambassador so quite interesting. He has travel to Varadero Cuba which is like 3 or 4 hours from Havana with white sand beaches an DC you sip great Cuban rum and eat lobsters for dinner super cheap.

    Anyway boarding in 5 minutes.

    Thanks again for sharing so much of your trip with us.... sorry it had to end so soon. Safe travels.

    I especially like your view on the $7 sharing charge at Mme J's..... it really is a fair charge.
