    So glad all is well and that you are enjoying. It could have been a disaster with the storm. Airlines use any excuse to cancel flights these days. I used to have a fear of flying. I’m not completely over it. It’s the turbulence that scares me. But after some flights to Europe I really became better at flying. Those planes go up higher and they are larger planes so you don’t feel the turbulence as much. Was a nail biter going to SC from Newark last year on a smaller plane. Have a blast!

    So glad you were able to get online. We are not tech savvy by any means so totally understand. Glad you are getting in “Manchebo vacation mode” and relaxing. I hope you are able to tell us about your casino wins. Enjoy your long overdue Aruba vacation and keep the trip reports coming!

    Edgar..... Nope... I really think my serious drinking days are behind me! Only one at lunch yesterday and I'm not sure if I'll put much of a dent in the 4 pack in the refridgerator!

    Some almost sand blasting wind this morning. Just came back after 2 hours on the beach and 2 splashes in the ocean so I could catch up with you good folks!

    Dinner at Taste my Aruba last night and Patti loved it! It fit her desire for a romanctic setting and good food. She had Amberjack and I had the Drunkin' Shrimp. She loved her fish and I'm really a steak kinda guy. The shrimp was very tasty but probably should have had a bit more sauce. The bread pudding later was great, but a bit dry. All in all a good experence and Nathely came to chat before we left. She is a delightful woman. The atmosphere and service were spot on.

    Made my nightly stop at Alahambra after we got back to the room. Had a fantastic run at one of the blackjack tables playing with only one other player who was building stacks of black chips. It was a $25 table so that kept some of the rookies away. I cashed out $800 positive after a very enjoyable hour playing with beside the really big winner! The other coupla tables I played at were not as kind and forget it about video poker! Any visit to the casino when you leave with a bit more than you started with is a good visit! Was actually back to the room and in bed right after 11:00. Yup, really slowing down in my old age!

    Are you finding that Manchebo is pretty much the same with the new owners?

    That was our trip in March, Chuck. We got sand blasted a few days. You could actually see the sand blowing around. We never tried to eat under our palapa, besides eating some sand, you also had trouble holding things down. Our trip in June was much better. You just never know.
