A Good son Yes you are ... Credit to the human race ,Family is important ..But unfortunately, these days our kids have different ideas .thats from experience I am sorry to say, My MUm is 92. She is In A nursing home now ,But the best nursing home. They love her she is so taken care of. Which means we can leave her and my friends visit her while I am away and give me reports. She's seen the photos of this trip on my friends IPad. But is most confused where we are !
Now you have a great day and enjoy it even though we had Rain this morning ,
Please visit our Homeaway site.
Our lovely Aruba home is available for rent.
Day 7 6/25 The end of the road.
It's been cloudy all day and it rained hard a few times this morning. The pool was pretty empty I guess because of the weather and a lot of people checking out. I ran out of food and booze supplies but no worries we ate breakfast at the islanders grill, I hung out at the pool, 2 long Island ice teas which gave me a strong buzz and I ordered Quesadillas for lunch which were very good.
I did laundry and started packing yesterday evening so I could take it easy on my last day. My flight tomorrow leaves at 1235pm so I expect an easy check in with customs. I chose an early flight to avoid long lines to make it easier for Ms Daisy. Hopefully all goes well.
Tonight dinner is at Quinta De Carmen and one more casino day for Ms Daisy.
I will finalize my trip when I get back to the states. Thanks for reading.
I've really enjoyed your vacation.... I think you'll love QDC tonight.... it's a great last night choice.
I have so enjoyed your reports. Yes, you are a special son and I think it is fabulous your Mum can vacation with you at 91. I only hope I can do the same. She has been blessed to have you. I know you feel the same about her. I also have a great son and I know he will take care of me. So glad you had a grand time and was able to share your adventures with us.
Well I hailed a cab for dinner and I told him QDC. He dropped me off at MJs! I was thinking could this be a sign? I was almost tempted to get out but I told the cab driver hey I said QDC he said oh that's right I'm sorry.
Ms Daisy noticed the resemblance of QDC and MJs as far as court yard setting. We started off with Manhattan's and the waiter suggested a different brand of bourbon I never heard of but it was tasty. Then I asked for the crispy shrimp to share. It brings 10 shrimps on a a bed of mixed greens so he divided it into 2 plates 5 and 5. I thought that was classy because most places will just bring the full plate and you have to both pick on it. They were delicious! For dinner I had the Cajun rib eye and Ms Daisy had the rack of lamb. My rib eye was ok but kind of flavorless. It says seasoned with Cajun spices but it tasted like any ordinary rib eye. The yogurt sauce made it taste better. I helped Ms Daisy with the lamb and it was wonderful.
Our waiter was very attentive but I got the feeling he was trying to up sell us from the start. Like with Manhattan oh you don't want Makers Mark I will get you something better. Before I even tasted the Manhattan he was asking if I was going to buy a bottle of wine. When I finished the Manhattan he asked if I wanted a glass of wine with my steak and I said yes Carbernet Sauvignon and he said, I will get you my favorite. Which was $14 a glass and the Manhattan was $11. I don't know maybe I got used to casual dining but I felt uncomfortable there. It was a different experience than the first time. I felt more comfortable at MJs. The food tasted better and huge portions, great services without making you feel uncomfortable or up selling.
I'm actually surprised with this second visit to QDC.
Tonight Ms Daisy broke even at Glitz casino and we are checking out tomorrow at 900am for our 1230pm flight.
I will wrap it up when I get home.
I am sorry to hear that you felt that QDC was trying to "up sell".
Not the first time that I have read this about QDC.
Glad to hear that MS Daisy broke even tonight.
I consider breaking even a win!
Safe and easy travels tomorrow Ed. Enjoy and I hope that you do get back there in November.
I am glad you had a great trip. I would not be "happy" with being up sold either, I typically know what I want....
