and I arrived at Hedo after a long 10 hour trip. Had to wait for about 1 hour
for our room to be ready. I was pleased we didnt get bumped to another
met Stacey, Keith , Denny and Diane within a few minutes of our arrival.
After talking to them in Dennys site it was great to finally meet everyone.
Keith, Peter and I all went to Pastafaris with Denny and Diane. We felt
honored to be invited to dinner with Denny and Diane. We had a great time
getting to know each other better.
during the week Diane, Trudy and I sang in the piano bar. Denny told us we
didnt suck; we were satisfied with that answer.
routine went like this, got up just in time to be able to get some breakfast,
before they cleaned it up. Went to the beach and commandeered one of the
floating rafts. Our group would slowly gather there and relax for the morning.
several occasions we had front row seats at the sex bunnies show. One day a
WWW couple decided to go out and copy the sex bunnies routine, same 69 raft,
same position. Soon the WWW couple had new respect for the sex bunnies, they
could go for hours.
soon as lunch was served we would wander in and get our fix of grilled cheese
and fries with jerk sauce. (mental note, jerk sauce is only for food, do not
apply it to sensitive areas of the body.)
I wont do it again Keith even if you beg me. LOL.
group would scatter after lunch, some napping, some would move to the
tried to play volleyball as many days as possible. A lot of the time it turned
into contact volleyball, once I even got peed on while going for the ball. I
bet that doesnt happen on the prude side. LOL.
Most of us would stay around till the jerk chicken was served. There is
nothing like being in Jamaica, sitting around the hot tub with 16 of your
closest friends eating Jerk chicken.
entered the wet t-shirt contest, came in second. I had lots of WWW votes as I
went on the WWW catamaran cruise to Pickled Parrot.
and Stacey both jumped off the cliff, glad they didnt hurt anything. Make
sure you hold on to anything you value before u jump.
night Trudy and I decided we would be a couple. The competition came down to
us against Glow Bob and Maggie.
u guessed it Bob and Maggie were the winners. Maybe next year I will enter
with Buddy. (My blow up gator.)
WWW bare as you dare night will be one we will all remember fondly. Keith and
Stacey had brought Latex paint to wear for this night. Stacey was a little
under the weather, so we had to help Keith apply his costume. We ended up
painting him a green pair of shorts with blue dots in all the right places. He
wore my captains hat to finish the look. As the paint dried his shorts got
tighter and tighter. He had to keep adjusting things LOL. It was all fun till
the time came to take his shorts off. A whole lot of oil and an hour later he
was back in the pink. Im sure the maids were thrilled the next morning to
see our room covered in green latex paint.
night we played volleyball in the prude pool (nude of course) and it was the
guys against the girls. There was Keith, Denny, Bob (on his 55th
trip to Hedo), Oli and Peter and for the girls there was me, Stacey, Lin, and
another girl. Off course the
girls won. That was a really good time thanks to all who participated.
That was the same night that Diane took our pictures in the pool
through the window in the disco. Cant wait to see those Diane. (even if they dont turn
out it was fun trying.)
final day came and everyone was in a very good mood. In the afternoon we all
ended up in our usual spot the cool Jacuzzi. This day was the best of them
all. We had a constant flow of vodka slushs coming for several hours. It is
good to try a new drink now and then. There was lots of conversation and
laughing. At one point we had a conga line going in the Jacuzzi. It was a
rather short line as the cool Jacuzzi is only so big, but it was rather cozy.
Make sure you dont come in too low when Keith is getting in the cool
Jacuzzi. It might make him nervous.
left the next morning really early, as in being awake at 6 am. We woke up
Keith and Stacey to say good-bye. Stacey was on the bus and ready to leave
with us. It was very difficult saying good-bye to such terrific new friends.
After some farewell hugs and good-byes the bus pulled away and Stacey
could go back to bed. Bob and Val joined us for our early departure and a nice
quick trip home. We slept on the
bus (if you can believe that) and once on the plane, we pretty much slept all
the way home too.
Id like to say thanks to all the special people we met and partied with all
week. You are all truly great
friends and we look forward to seeing you again at Hedo next year and
hopefully sometime during the next year.
You all know who you are: Keith and Stacey, Jay and Em, Bob and Val,
Scott and Debbie, Oli and Lin, Les and Trudy, Jim and Lisa and off course
Denny and Diane. Thanks
especially to you Denny for creating such a wonderful atmosphere for all of us
to meet and become such great friends.
