Hello Everyone. Sorry I was unable to post immediately after the show. I left town the day after the showing and I wasn't really going to change my plans because they picked the date they did for the show to air.
As for the show I thought it was great. We watched the show at our local bowling alley with the my friends and my entire league watching. No one missed Monday Night Football for the half hour - LOL. They did a great job portraying us for who we really are. Yes Brenda really does clean as much as they made her out to want to be clean. I certainly do have plenty of "stuff" that I am going to have to figure out what to do with. The shirts and hats will all be coming with me. I think they spent more time than usual on the buyers (us) than a normal episode of HHI but that is what makes the show a bit unique as compared to the others over the years. I did think they showed plenty of Aruba though for the time frame they had. As for the other houses there was so much that could have been shown that wasn't but as someone already quoted, you can only do so much in 22 minutes. Mind you we taped for six twelve hour days to get down to that 22 minutes.
As for the bar, that is still a work in progress as it is not as easy to find a bar on the beach as you may think as those that are already there would have to want to get out. That will be a patience game for sure. Our house is rented for the time being as we do have a two to three year plan to make the full move. That gives plenty of time for someone to want to retire out of their bar and hand the reigns over to us. Worst case scenario I can become a server until the opportunity arises for the bar.
I'm glad most of you enjoyed the show as much as we did here in Niagara Falls and I am sure over the years we will meet many of you.
Really glad to see somewhere else beside Costa Rica, The U.S. Virgin Islands, and the Dominican Republic being featured. I always look out for those episodes set in the Caribbean, especially Aruba. I still have the episode saved, whenever I need a dose of Aruba I look at it. Really enjoyed the episode!!
