No Place Like Home: Text Messages from the Captain

 

miss you

I was blessed with a visit to California to hold grand-babies. Just so you know, I had all the fun for us this week, and I have the text messages from the Captain to prove it. Here’s a look at a few of the too many pictures that I took.

My only trauma for the week away was getting a free pass to the zoo, because I now qualify for the senior discount.

But, when someone gets to have all the fun, someone else gets stuck on the boat taking care of the animals and all the boat stuff that has to be done every day. It was simply a terrible week for the Captain, and I have the text messages to prove it.

Tuesday, when he returned from taking me to the Orlando airport, he had to take Nyah for a walk on the beach. My first text was his bottle find…Chinese or Japanese? Very cool.

By Wednesday morning, the “where do I find it” texts started to arrive.

I found it heartbreaking that I wasn’t totally necessary. Can you believe he can plan a meal or two and cook? Wow! All by his-self, I am so proud.IMG_8160

Not only dinner, but breakfast!IMG_8163

 

He sews button too, double wow!IMG_8164

But all good things come to an end, maybe he burnt a finger or something, cause the horrible pics of my favorite restaurants started to come in. Without me! I can’t believe it!IMG_8165

Of course, there was motorcycle riding.IMG_8167

And sea glass finds.IMG_8168

And a new cell phone, because the old one failed, when somehow it got wet on the return boat ride from Captains BBQ.IMG_8169

More motorcycle riding with friends and eating out and neighbors who felt sorry for him and cook him dinner.

Again…more proof that he can cook…others ate and lived to tell. But still a few “where do I find it” questions. I have to keep my necessity somehow.IMG_8176

My visit went quickly and the Captain is still a romantic at heart, my proof, his final text messages before I returned. He is so sweet and special, I’m a lucky lady and blessed to have him. A wise young lady once said, “There’s no place like home.” I agree, even if it floats.IMG_8178

  1. What a cute and loving post. This might become a romantic movie. Instead of love letters, it’s love texts! Just one question: can a grandmother ever take too many photos of her grands?
