grrrr...dealing with internet connections is a challenge here!  I just lost my entire Sunday blog that I had written  :(
But, what about those Lakers?  What a great OT game! 

Today was church and dancing ~ is it okay to use the fact that I'm still on CA time as an excuse that I fell back to sleep after my wake up call.  This is not good when someone's picking you up at 6:45 AM (2:45 AM in Cali) and you drag your sorry self out of the sack at 6:35.  Arlene is the Condaleesa Rice looking one on the far left of the picture.  The other Bajan ladies are the greeters/ushers.  I have never, and I mean never, been so hugged and kissed in one day (at least in church!)  It is a warm place!  Great teaching, lots of energy, we waved banners while we sang, there was dancing.  You should have seen the banners, they were red, blue, green and pink.  Can you guess what color I got.  Yep, pink.  :)  The pastor was young, energetic, loud and loved the Lord.  It was good. 

Let's not talk about my 3-nap afternoon.  Come on now, this is getting ridiculous.  Well, I was up late last night and did have to get up early.  Usually a good travel book will hold my attention, but as I was reading, the call of the nap was louder than the call of the travel book.  But to give in to it 3 times.  I noticed fellow beach dwellers doing the same thing.  Planning on reading a book, then they'd drift away, curled up in a ball, never minding the fact that their tan would be wonky.  There was even a dog lying next to me on the beach, totally stretched out and sound asleep in the full noon sun, truthfully.  It must be the island elixir.  Whatever it is, bring it on.

Angie and Alicia are my new, well, not best friends, but acquaintances from Germany.  One is  attractive, fit, about 60.  The other one, isn't.  Well, she might be 60, but she's not the other two things.  I found out later she does belly dancing.  Now that would be, hmmm, that would be.  We all toddled off to Crystal Waters at their suggestion.  Beachside, barbeque going, lots of locals, lots of music and lots of dancing. was all good.  I even learned a couple of new dances.  I'll never learn to move my hips like they do!  I'm sure I'd have to go to the chiropractor if I did! 

Tomorrow ~ my last day of freedom.  I'm guessing this "free" lifestyle would not be good for one on a continual basis.  Words like structure, discipline seem very far away right now, but I'm sure they'll come back.  I feel very restored.  I have adapted to the island way...
