Cheers from the lanai! A long day; a quick bandage change at Mom's turned into a 4 hr ordeal, she's such a bleeder. Of course 2nd patient needed help today, the afternoon on a Friday on a Mother's Day weekend = traffic, which I don't do :wink: but did :evil: I really have nothing to complain about in the scheme of things so just be thankful that the sun is beating on me (albeit I have a blankie, the wind is chilly :P ). How are you feeling Tara, you may want to get that checked, you need to be in tip top shape for retirement :wink:

We had a good day here. One of our PIA but lovable adult cats was adopted and George and the guy he hired finished digging ditches for the sprinkler system. In with some red.

Looks like not just you Judi....

From QB Airport:

INFO: Eventhough Aruba is experiencing a complete power outage (black-out), the airport remains open and operational. The emergency back-up system is providing the necessary power for the primary services.
All departing passengers have to be at the airport 3 hours prior their flight (normal procedure). Passengers can expect some lines, but as soon as the power issue is solved all processes will continue without any inconveniences.


Thank you for understanding. Please share with travelers traveling to/from Aruba airport.

We've been in since the bars opened at 11AM :mrgreen: !!! As Captain Anthony would say "The answer is rum!!!" We had no power in the room when we finished our beach walk but the restaurants have generator backup so it was all good. The room came back on before we went for lunch. We heard rumors that the workers at the power plant were going on strike. Judi, any knowledge about that?
Go Sox!!!

Cheers everyone. We went for Chinese food and now home watching the game and having a couple of beers. Allergies are making my eyes so itchy. How’s the knee Tara?

Spend most of the afternoon outside mowing, trimming, using the blower, washing the tractor and turning over my garden.
I made spinach salads with grilled chicken for dinner. I put watermelon and blueberries in mine....yummy!!
