    We bought ours new, but it was an end-of-year closeout deal. We got it for several thousand less than it would have been a few months earlier at Honda. I do not remember if any of the dealerships had a lot of used cars are not, but both(Ford and Honda) that we went to, were very helpful. Maybe start there and get some help or ideas from them.

    I know this sounds crazy, but ask around at the bars. The kids that come and go from the Netherlands have cars they buy cheap and sell cheaper. Our really good friend from Moomba, Moxi, sold her car for about 1,000 bucks before she left to go home. I saw the car and other than faded paint it was really nice, and the AC would freeze you out.

    That's funny...we went to see Widows too. I actually fell asleep during the first hour. Came too and thought the second half was better than the first. They had a lot of good cast members but they didn't seem to play that well together. Might have to watch it again and this time stay awake

    Yes, we get a parking spot within the gate, so parking is not an issue.

    Paul and I went to the WIDOWS yesterday (senior rate $5 each).
    love Viola Davis, hated the movie...left after 1 hr.

    is the a place for you to park a car long term at your condo complex?

    continue to have fun.
    have a blast with you son.

    Yes, we remember...we went to the Honda Dealer first. Used car selection minimal and the Fit does not exist. The plant in Mexico flooded and they haven't had any for months. The don't expect to get any until after May of next year. Used cars at dealers seem sparse. I wonder where thy all go, as there are certainly a lot of them on the island! Thinking they pass in private sale.

    That makes sense Walt. We're going to keep asking around and talk to a couple of the locals that we know. Great tip!

    Wednesday 11/28:

    The bulk of the day was business as usual...Then headed to the airport to pick up our son. His flight was a little and we got there right on time. Stopped briefly at the condo to unpack and a change of clothes and the to Mathew's for happy hour. Wednesday is their karaoke happy hour. We don't participate but some of the people were very good and it was a fun time. Out favorite bartender gave us a couple rounds of shots to celebrate our son's first time on the island. We stayed there for dinner and sat by the water. Dinner was very good and it was the perfect setting for one's first night on the island.

    Went pack to the condo and sat in the hot tub for awhile enjoying the night breezes before calling it a day.

    Went to Bodytech Fitness Center and renewed our membership. Time to get the old joints moving again...
    Had a late breakfast at the condo and then headed to Eagle Beach for a little bit of Aruba sunshine. It was partly cloudy, which made it pleasant for our first day in the sun. The Bride's fingers we're itching for the slot machines, so we ventured over to the Glitz for a short time, so she said. Well the girl couldn't lose, and we ended up staying there for a few hours. I actually left for a bit and went to Peta Peta happy hour. We caught up an hour later. I must have been her good luck charm and the luck ran out. Still finished up a bit though. Had a nice surprise at La Cabana. I'll link the photo to see how good you people are.
    Went over to Pega Pega to close their happy hour and grab a light dinner. Everything was very good. We were pretty much done after that and called it a night.

    Here you go...and the celebrity is?
