I Love Aruba translate papamiento?

on our jan-feb trip to divi village i took a remote control truck. had a guy make up balshi stickers for the sides and strapped a 12 pack cooler on the back. then deliveredl beers for our friends around the pool. mr griffin, the manager saw it and came over laughing. he took pictures and it ended up in the diaria paper the next day. only problem is that it is in papiemento. i tried to use wikipedia and that was no help. if i can figure out how to scan and email it, could someone translate? any help would be appreciated.

I'm sure if you post the article someone on the board
can help translate. I'm not the best translator -
I can only tell you the jist of the story. But
there are others on this board that read it well.
I found out that at my age when taking classes,
I was 'thinking' way too much about the 'rules'
and didn't learn it that well. Ah to be young
and a 'sponge'! LOL!
