Corrine, he may be right. They usually have a "cooling off" period before the strike actually begins. I'll keep my fingers crossed that your flights operate as planned.

Happy to report back that Elaine and Big Papa did leave enough liquid refreshments for us on the island. Either that or an emergency re-supply was flown in.

down side is that my brother and SIL are flying down on Saturday, April 8 on Spirit. this will be their first visit to Aruba and I am now getting nervous about their flights. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Hope everything works out for all.

Thanks, Carol! I hope so! Now if they go on strike AFTER April 22 and I'm stuck in Aruba - how awful!

Just back after 14 "boring days" - blue sky, white sand, blue-green water, 82 degrees, great restaurants and friendships. I can take more of those boring days .

50 weeks or 350 days to go before I am back. Saying it in weeks sounds shorter.

There's something hauntingly familiar about this scenario. My personal 34 year drought comes to an end in 211 days.
