Two Tickets to Paradise

Two weeks ago I was here:

Riviera Maya Mexico

Sitting on these lounge chairs:

At this resort:

Aventura Spa Palace
With this girl:

Miss Jeree

Despite horrific food, questionable service, and a salon with ONE BLOWDRYER, we had a great time.  The weather was beautiful, the cocktails were flowing, and we had days upon days to just relax.


Bathing Beauties
The "Coco Loco Girls"
We had to dance in front of the entire pool area and assist the entertainment staff in making thes tropical cocktails.
Let's just say there was a whole lot of shaking going on and I hope it doesn't end up on You Tube.
Day 2:  Relaxing on the sand. 

Funny Story:
These two guys come up to us in the pool and open with:  "Where do you go to school?"
They proceed to tell us they are 19 and 20.
I pull my rock out from the depths of the water and say:  "I'm married with 2 kids."
The stunned children reply:  "We thought you were like 20-21."
Jeree says "Try adding 10 years to that."
Their disbelief was priceless.
I'm a sexy beast, what can I say?
Jeree and I have been friends for half our lives, since we were fifteen, and honestly I don't think we act any differently than we did then.  She was hiding uneaten steak under her mashed potatoes, I was dancing like an ass in the lobby.  You've seen us posing on the rocks and you've seen me with my snorkel.  It was so nice to just be silly and feel like a teenager again.  No worries.  No responsibilities.  Just sand and sun with my very best friend.  Our two tickets to paradise might have been free, but those days in Mexico were priceless.

Love ya Smitty!
