    Day 5 Wed.

    Oh my sober all day on account of the pain med I took this morning. However, I'm feeling better, walking less stiffed than this morning.

    Today basically took it easy. Spent 2 hours by pool, rested in room.

    I went to Bingoes for dinner at 6pm. I sat outside al fresco and it was a good night for it. I had a wonderful dinner, coconut shrimp app, beef skewer with peanut sauce, fries and chocolate mouse for dessert. I left stuffed!!! Glad I skipped lunch. I missed the coffees. They have a menu for coffee with amaretto, frangelica, khulua, Irish coffe, the works. Tomorrow I can resume spirits!

    Day 6 Thursday

    Woke up feeling better and walking better. Recovered fast! There is hope..My Orthopedic did not believe me when I told him I can walk up to a half mile. He said, I doubt that from what I,m seeing on xrays but if you can, that is great. I can but then I'm in pain the next day like when I walked to La Terrazza or last trip I walked from plane to baggage claim and next 2 days, pain...But I've been improving. Eventually I will need hip surgery. A few friends of mine had the surgery and got their life back and are doing very well. I just need to lose the pounds to qualify for surgery.

    Breakfast at islanders grill pancakes and eggs,coffee. Hung out at pool from 10a.m to 2:30pm. I made up for yesterday's booze free day. Well I had to drink up my duty free Captain Morgan's which I only paid $15. It was$18.50 but the wheel chair guy went to buy It for me and they charged him $15. He was very nice. Dropped me off bathroom, duty free, picked up luggage, jumped the taxi line, loaded my luggage and all. I missed mentioning that on day 1. Gave him a nice tip which he was not expecting. They are very humble people and appreciate our visit.

    Dinner was at MJ. My waitress and assist from last trip remembered me. Even though they were not my waiters this time, they came around to make sure all was well. I had the Korean Spring Rolls which were great. I saved one for lunch tomorrow but ate 2. I had the lobster roll which was huge and comes with a nice salad and French fries. I sub for augratin potatoes. I ate half the lobster roll and saved the rest for lunch tomorrow. I had a Manhattan for drink. One thing for sure they have great bartenders at MJ. For dessert an Espresso Martini. Then my former waiter bought me one. When I got the bill, they did not charge me for any of the espresso Martinis and they are $15 each. I'm a good tipper but they take very good care of me. I was even 20 minutes late and no problem while they made others wait...

    Tomorrow last day allready. I'm looking forward to see Andrea and Paul, Bradster but not laundry and packing. Good night!
