    Thanks all!

    I'm home safe and sound and very tired!

    Flight left Aruba on time and the Jet Blue Mint Experience was very good! They give you a lot of great food consisting of shrimp appetizers, pasta, pot roast, cheese cake, great wine, bourbon, cappuccino or expresso plus free gifts like creams and stuff. There was only 2 other people flying Mint so it was empty. The service and experience was great but I would not pay $1,400 for a 1 way flight. I just lucked out and go a flight for $400 and after I booked it the price jumped back to $1,345 per person. There were people asking if there were any seats available so they can upgrade. I was like ok here we go wait until they here the price. "That will be $980 per person' No thanks! Anyway, it was a comfortable flight, waited 30 minutes for luggage and in NY there is some construction going on. It used to be that you could exit baggage claim and grab a taxi right out side. Now you have to walk all the way to the end, take an elevator upstairs, walk all the way to the other end, take an elevator downstairs and then get your cab. One time i let the wheel chair person go not knowing they moved the taxi stand and poor Ms Daisy was beat walking all that. Now I know better and don't dismiss the wheel chair person until we get the cab.

    Any way, my trip and report is over. I'm just going to post some Jet Blue mint pictures tomorrow and that should be it.

    Good Night!

    Glad to hear that your trip with your mother to Aruba was a good one, hopefully you've already begun planning your next trip. I'm looking forward to the day when I can visit Aruba two times per year, say around late March/early April and my usual September visit.

    I loved your reports however it took me a bit to get caught up. I know you and Ms. Daisy must have had a marvelous time. Jet Blue Mint is something I was not aware of since Jet Blue is not available in our area. This was something special. So glad you have a wonderful vacation. Aruba is just so special. We are very luck to be able to enjoy it. Now it is back to reality. Sorry your job is so difficult. Hope it gets somewhat better. I look forward to your next trip and your story. Take good care of Ms. Daisy.
