We are Dave and Ali from the UK. This will be our 16th or 17th trip to COR/CTI, we leave for Jamaica in 2 days, arriving "home" on Wed 10/14 - 10/22, 8 whole days in paradise woo-hoo. Possibly extending it for another 3 as our flight home is not till the 25th. Ed & Lynn, we are so with you as loyal lion lovers. We refuse to acknowledge the palm trees (though a sweet logo), we carry a lasting memory of the fun of those big cuddling cats, nothing can be a substitute. We should be there for most of your stay, looking forward to sharing stories going back to the days of no TV, no pool on the island, half the rooms they have now, but STILL the best resort on the planet. What keeps you and us going back? The staff, the staff, the staff and the staff!! See you in just a few short days.
Dave & Ali, You'll arrive before us as we get in on next Saturday. If all goes well I'll be drinking a Red Stripe and smoking a cigar by the patio bar at 5:00 PM. Lynn and I hope to see you, Fred & Cynthia and others there. You'll have a head start on your ALL over tans but Lynn will put you to shame by the end of the week. The Cherokee comes out quick!!
As we remember Saturday night is the taste of Jamaica around the pool. Hopefully we can share a table and stories of the grand old lady. My parents were there in 1955!!!
I love the way everyone gets soooo excited when they get close to their return trip home. We'll be there tomorrow and we'll make sure everything is in great shape on the island. Deborah, I didn't remember you also liked Myers and Diet Coke!!! We had so many people drinking it in Sept. they ran out on the whole resort and had to make a special trip to the distributor. They were totally out of it at the duty free shops at the airport as well. I hope Jamaica has restocked in the last month.....
Ed and Lynn, check out the Tower Island Islander flag thread on the au natural mb. The lions still live!!!!!
Fred and Cynthia
PS. Deborah please bring your Islander CD's. We lost some of them when one of our bags disappeared on the way to Ja. a number of years ago.
This is our second time at CTI we are really looking forward to it its been two years since we were last there and thats too long! we are looking forward to seeing the changes and getting Damien to fix up some drinks! is anyone else going to be there then?
