    Like you said "Small World!"

    Did your DIL grow up in Bangor? If so, she may know my family!

    Gordon College in Wenham MA

    When we lived in Waterville we had folks from Jackman come to "the big city" for supplies.

    We went to Bangor every so often to the Hollywood Slots place

    Mine is after the old indigenous indian population of Aruba. The Arawak or Arahuaco in Spanish. It's a very common nickname online especially for Arubans. Some people also have it as a nickname themselves. Some even have it tattooed as a form of respect for all that came before us

    Since 1980, and throughout the many changes, we still love going downtown in Oranjestad.

    My kids grew up (school age) during the start of social media. We pounded into them that they never gave out personal info. They were not allowed to post:
    name, hair color, eye color etc
    hometown
    address
    phone #
    school name
    sport they played
    jersey number
    parents’ names
    when and where they were on vacation

    This became so ingrained that when I started a profile here I kept it vague as well.

    AUA is the Aruba airport code. 1989 is the year we were married and went to Aruba on our honeymoon.
    Hence: AUA1989.

    These days, social media has changed and you can find quite a bit of info about someone on social media.
