I'm not quite sure how it happened, but NavyGuy one upped me -

(An email I received today)

So this will sound absolutely absurd, but I swore I just saw your husband.

Back story: I've been following your blog for a handful of months now, seeing as I'm a Navy attachment also (but I've only recently established "follower-ship").

Anyways, I got off work in Norfolk/Virginia Beach (Virginia), and was talking with my dad when all of a sudden I yelled, "I think I just saw Marrying the Navy's husband!!"

So fast forward to now, I'm emailing a complete stranger, after months of stalking, claiming to have seen her husband, probably sounding like a loony bin, but wanted to see if I was fooled by a doppelganger...

So if you do get to talk to him, and he was in the Town Center of Virginia Beach, then - by golly - it was him.

If it wasn't him, well then it was nice to meet you. Keep up the hilarity of life. And enjoy the PacNW (I'm from Oregon). Hopefully you've gotten used to the rain. :D

Mrs. Wookie

Unbelievable. Un-be-LIEV-able!! NavyGuy got recognized!!! So not fair... I do all the hard blog work, and he gets the love. When I talked to him tonight, he confirmed the sighting; apparently, he's staying in the Town Center area, so I'm sure Mrs. Wookie saw him. He was super amused when I told him the story, and I suspect his cover (Navy hat) doesn't fit anymore now that his head has grown four sizes. Despite my tiny bit of jealously, I am floored that someone in the real world (besides my mother) reads this blog closely enough to spot NavyGuy out and about!!! Thanks for the note Mrs. Wookie, and for being a loyal reader - you definitely win reader of the year :) (And yes, we're getting used to the rain... although we could use a little more what with all the hot weather we've been having.)

Next up - paparazzi photos and stalkers!

That's rich. Gotta love the blogging world.

NavyGuy 1*, Mugs 0.

*The red hair really gives him away though; it's kind of an unfair advantage.

Well, Kitty and I aren't sure that we like having Mrs. Wookie get "reader of the year".

You know how we in Farmtown love getting our awards.

In other you think we'll be invited to Pres. Obama's birthday dinner tonight? I haven't gotten my invite, have you?

Perhaps when we are on History Channel.....then perhaps.

Ha ha! I was going to email you to tell you I met your husband at a party in Anacortes, but I thought it might be too weird. Now I don't feel so bad!
