    I can't believe they canceled the game today because it was cold...tomorrow is going to be the same weather in Cleveland, will they cancel it again? Suck it up and play ball already...LOL.

    I know our high school team plays in the cold! We are Indians fans and attended a playoff game one year during which the wind chill was in the teens.

    Hmmmm. There are many professions that pay less and work in colder temps.

    To bring it back to topic, how is the new pool at the Playa Linda? They started that project on day 2 of our vacation last year.

    Just a quick check-in from Aruba. Sorry for not keeping up with trip report. I will catch up when I get home.

    I am umpiring a noon game tomorrow (Saturday) in Noord. It will be my third game.

    I fly home Sunday.

    More to come ...

    I will likely make just a short trip to the Hyatt casino tonight, followed by tomorrow night at the Stellaris Casino. I want to reconnect with my friends in the band that used to play above the stage at the Hyatt. They are no longer there, but play Saturday nights only at the Marriott.

    Luck has been horrible this trip. Two winning nights, the rest losing nights. Maybe I can finish on a high note. I have had about five or six times where I was four cards towards a royal, but haven't caught the winner.

    Good luck..... odds of 47:1 with one to draw.

    Yes, I know. I wouldn't care if I drew one, two, three or fours cards to the royal as long as I get one! :-)
