Just think Elaine----I'll be leaving Logan at 6:30 a.m. and still arriving in Aruba at the same time as you. I'd much prefer the nonstop, and I dread the Miami connection but we do what we have to do to get to Paradise. If you have the opportunity to shop before I get there---that will be fine. However, I would love to shop with you and Sue. Check at the desk to see if I've arrived.

Have a great vacation. My friend MaryJane and I are scheduled to arrive 1 day later. Whether or not we do so is up in the air at this time, no not an airplane, a stork. MJ's daughter is due to have her first child any day now so we are in a "winging it" mode. I hope we will be winging it to Aruba as scheduled, but the stork is a higher priority than the airplane.

Wow, I gotta tell you - double digits DOES feel good. I've been working a 2nd job nights lately and will be til at least January. The down side is that I'm working ALL the time now. Sure do miss my daily visits here. But the up side, well actually there are 2 up sides. 1 - $$$ to go towards Aruba, and 2 - the time is FLYING by.

Elaine, I do that head packing thing myself....

Gina, a few more days and you're off.....

Tom, ditto what Elaine said.

Wow, am I tired - this working thing has got to go. Well maybe I'll win the Mega Millions tonight. You never know, right?

Elaine, never let it be said that you haven't tried everything once. And I guess one sunrise at the lighthouse is more than enough!! Now what else do you want to try once?

mick, actually it isn't normal. over the last year or so the weather pattern has been quite unusual as it has everywhere (who would have thought that baltimore would have the record winter snowfall of 77"?) this is rainy season on aruba but rainy season doesn't usually mean this much rain. hopefully, the island will go back to it's normal pattern by the time you get there.

Congratulations to MJ, and the family! You've won a "bundle" already!!

Glad you get to use your airfare, and while I'm sunning and funning in February, should the rain ever stop, I hope you make a killing at the tables in Vegas.

Oh, while I'm in this thread ~ 54 and a wakeup!!

Thanks Elaine. I hope you have a great time--and a dry time-- in Aruba. 54 days is not too long to wait considering much of that time will be spent on preparing for and recovering from the holidays.

You and MaryJane most certainly made the right decision---to stay home with daughter and grandson. Congratulations on the new addition, and good luck in Las Vegas.

Thanks Mary, even though it is MJ's grandson, not mine, I know I made the right decision. There is no way I'd rather be sitting on a beautiful Aruban beach with a cold beer in my hand than sitting here in freezing Jersey waiting for a phone call from MJ telling me what I have to do or where I have to be next. Right now, MJ is doing all the heavy lifting and I am doing what I do best, sitting on my butt in front of either my computer or TV...waiting...waiting... and waiting.

Anyway, I have started a new Aruba countdown, 195 days till week 25 at LaCabana. For Christmas I am giving all of MJ's kids a copy of our 2011 vacation plans, and hoping they consider that before conceiving any more grandkids for MJ.

Another fantastic trip to Aruba is now in the history books! Rain.....there was plenty of that, mosquitos.....there were plenty of those Great times.....there were plenty of those! I even had a winning streak at the casino with blackjack and craps! I love it when that happens!

Now we start the countdown for next year. I'm already excited about getting back there and seeing all of the posse again. We had 22 with our group this year, and all friends we've met over the years that we've been making the trek to Aruba! How great is that?

I hope everyone has an amazing holiday season!

Please, oh please, go away rain
Only sunshine - no arthritis pain..
My island of Aruba, of sunsets and rum..
It won't be long till here I come!

28 days and counting just got blasted with snow and ready for some warmth, Are the beaches ever ready buzzy? I have read were you have to get to the beach early to save a chair.

Elaine...I can't wait for the saga to begin. It is always a good and entertaining read. It will help me forget that I still have 270 some days to go. But it's better than 300 some days I guess.

I can't believe how fast the time is going by - haven't had much time to visit here lately - but I'm down to 79 days!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Once Christmas comes around, I can't think about anything else and actually start floating up there on cloud 9. wooohooooooo! I've done nothing but work work work, but knowing I have 3 weeks of paradise coming keeps me going. My God, I just can't wait.....

Ro - it's nice to "see" you again!!

It's been so freakin' cold here, and snow's already on the ground. I wake up every morning, and say to myself..."it won't be long now, one less day to wait." Bring it on!!!
