Thought I should provide an update.
Brother spent 4 days with us. Glad to see him. It had been about 4 years since I had the pleasure. Hope that it won’t be so long the next time, especially since his beautiful wife is pregnant and we ALL will want a chance to see the kid.
After he left us they went down to Charleston, SC to my in-laws. They spent about 5 days with his folks and 2 of his sisters. After that they were heading over to Tennessee to see her grandmother. Then it is back home to California.
With both of us in the Navy, our timing did not always work out. Either he was deployed or I was deployed. That’s what happens when a Sailor marries into a Navy family. My wife, her father, older sister and younger brother all in the Navy. At least we all have a common history.
Of course, it also did not help that he is stationed on the west coast and I was stationed on the east coast. The miles always did create a problem.
