Made it to the beach at 1030am and Ms Daisy got in the water for 1 hour. She really loves the beach and hates pools except the hot Jacuzzi.
A little off topic but Ms Daisy had a terrible accident at age 39 while pregnant with me. She worked in a factory and got her arm caught in some machinery and could not reach the emergency switch. She was screaming for help but no one could hear her with all the machines running. Finally a foreman spotted her and turned the machine off. She lost a lot of skin and blood requiring blood transfusions. The doctor told my dad that she had a 50/50 shot at survival but most likely the baby would die. We both made it and here we are in Aruba. My dad passed away in 87 at 61 and from his death bed he asked me to take care of my Mom.
Back to Aruba, tonight we dined at Las Ramblas at La Cabana. Their menu is limited but they grill all cuts of steaks and seafood and you dine outdoors overlooking Eagle Beach across the street. I had a surf and turf which was a petite filet mignon with shrimp, bacon wrapped scallops and mashed potatoes. Ms Daisy had the paella which she really enjoyed but she kept bringing up MJ. I guess she really enjoyed MJ yesterday.
Tonight she lost at the casino. She was lucky during the week where she could stay on the same machine for an hour on $20 and then put another $20 and play for another hour and leave with $50. Well that luck changed tonight. She played around 6 different machines and no winning or long play. I think she lost around $60 but she enjoyed herself and say she will be back tomorrow for a rematch.
Well tomorrow is my last full day so I hope to make the most of it.
What a scary story about your Mom when she was pregnant with you. For sure, you both had a special Guardian Angel watching over you! So sorry you lost your Dad at such a young age. Glad you have such a strong bond with your Mom every since.
Thanks for taking the time and writing about your vacation.
Wishing you and your Mom a lovely last full day tomorrow. Fingers and toes are crossed over here that your Mom will have a lucky day tomorrow at the casino.

Have a beautiful last day in Aruba with Ms. Daisy, it is still a mystery to me how days seem to go by so fast in paradise. It has been a pleasure getting to know you and your Mom through your reports. Safe travels home but until then more fun, food and swims!

You and your mom are very blessed to have each other. I'm sure that she is one strong lady and you are a wonderful son. It is so great of you to spend time with your mom. Enjoy your last day in Aruba, and thanks for sharing your trip with us.
