Amy - Your countdown is almost over.

Bring us back of tales of your adventures. Sun, Food, Drink and more Sun, Food and Drink, and more Drink.

We want to know everything.

Have a great time at the Amsterdam Manor and the BB parties.

Since the AM has a free internet, check-in with us once in awhile.

Wishing you a safe trip and a great vacation.

Default Re: AMY - Have a Great Time

Thanks everyone!! It's funny how excited I still get about going to Aruba after all these years/trips!

Liz - I will definitely check out the bb's while I'm there. It's very handy to have free internet at Amsterdam Manor!

We're going to try and do a couple of new things this year - the Balashi Brewery tour and WEB plant tour. Also need to try a few new restaurants, too. My husband has also expressed an interest in climbing the Hooiberg again this year....not sure if I'm up for that task again (seem to remember having muscle failure in my legs on the way down before!) Might have to keep him occupied with beer on the beach instead!

But most of our days will be beach, drink, eat....beach, drink, eat....repeat....!!

ok amy, repeat after me. 'those 5 pounds are fluid weight. i do not need to walk. i need to lounge.' actually i gained 4 1/2 lb and lost it the first week back. my walking was minimal. to the beach, to the bar, to the car, to the restaurant, to the casino, to the bar, to the beach, lol.

Wow 40 people at that 2nd party. Where are they all coming from (are they between all three of the "good" bb's)????? Can't wait to see pics of that one!

Hmmmm....stay til the end of November....I wish!!!
The 40 people are from this bb and two other good bb's. But if 40 people say they're coming, then I'm guessing we'll get about 30 because you can always count on no-shows.

5 pounds of fluid weight is probably right....from all of the drinking! Oh well....you only live once, right?!?

Dave - So glad you celebrated for me on my birthday!!! I will be online during my stay since Amsterdam Manor has free internet for its guests. Won't be on every day of course but I'm sure I'll check in from time to time.

Come to Aruba with us....yes, yes you can!!

I saw Amy on too.

Minnesota is on Central Time so it was only 10 p.m. - not our 11 EST

She should be on her way.
