Another part of the trip...

To answer a few of questions...

Yes, I got my suit back on at Mullet

I don't remember where in Anguilla we went for our snorkeling trip. I think we were suppose to go to Sandy Ground or something like that, but we ended up at a place where there was a bar/restaurant called Roy's..?

Anyway, before we got back on the cat, we were all swimming and one of the passengers got up on the boat and asked who all wanted a beer. Well of course everyone in the water wanted one. So he said "Ok, if you want a beer you have to slap your hands in the water and bark like seals....Like a bunch of fools, there were about 20-25 of us in the water slapping our hands and ar, ar, ar, ar....we were all hysterical. Even the crew came over to see what all the noise was about. They started laughing and shook their heads and walked away. That made us laugh and ar, ar, ar even more. It's funny how you drink and eat together and become on happy family.

One lady from England came up to me and said "Oh the Dolla lady! Can I have my picture taken with you?" I looked at her and said "Oh sh-t!" and busted out laughing. She told me to look for myself on youtube......"niiiiice" I thought.

Ok....the Dolla lady must explain the Dolla thing.
At the buffet given by Toppers, I was called on stage by the nice gentleman with the nice buns with 3 other people. A gentleman who must have been in his late 40's early 50's. A newlywed girl who was probably about 21 or 22, myself 45, and another newlywed young man about 22-23. We were asked if we could move our hips. I'm thinking at this time..."Oh yea, it may be big, but I can move it." We all get in a row, boy, girl, girl, boy. He said ok, when I say 5 cents, move your hips to the left (we did), he said when I say 10 cents move your hips to the right (we did), he said when I say 50 cents move your butt back (we did) and when I say Dolla, move your hips forward (we did that as well). But when he said dolla, we had to take our fists and move them back as we thrust our hips forward. lol

We then had to go center stage and do this in front of everyone to the beat of music as he was saying his 5 cent, 10 cent, 50 cent, dolla.

The first man, well he was kind of off beat..ok a lot off beat. The little girl next to me seemed like she was afraid she might break something if she gave it too much umph. Me, as I was watching, thought...hell with it, give it your all honey buns, you don't know a soul here......and I gave it my all!

He got to calling out the money and the beat of the music was like a double beat so that's what I was doing. He stopped the music and said "Honey, you're getting double paid here." I said, "Hell, I have to keep this big thing in beat." He said "Girl, I never thought you'd be able to move that thing like that." I said "It may be big, but I know how to use it." Everyone just busted out laughing and clapping. So he made me start all over again. lol So needless to say, when I was doing my Dolla, Dolla, Dolla, at the end, I was making a reputation for myself as the Dolla Lady. And was identified as the Dolla Lady 3 days later on our trip to Anguilla. I did win a free Prime Rib dinner and a free boat trip from Simpson Bay to Marigot.
Unfortunately, I didn't get to enjoy either. They didn't have Prime Rib again that I seen (we were always doing something and not in the area all the time) and we never had a chance to make the boat trip either. It's all good, we had a great time! Please, if you get a chance to go to the buffet, do it, you'll have a blast!

It doesn't really make a difference, but sometime it is easier to follow and find information if it is all under one thread.
don't worry.
I am glad you had a good trip. and we love to watch tourists dancing to that song LOL
