It is one of the most dangerous parts of the world. He flies bad ass fighter planes off large naval carriers, he has risen to the ranks of a Lieutenant which is equivalent to a Captain in the other branches and he has many accolades from his superiors but I just want him home.I watch as he chats with his sixteen year old brother. ""Never receive them only give them because it will make chicks think I am taken.""Exactly…gotta be cool dude.I suppose it isn't the most exciting birthday being stuck in the middle of nowhere but I have thought about you all day." Ana tries not to water up as she knows this upsets Ted when she does that."Mom…stop. That one about the pilot that was lost at sea and was rescued by the Japanese. I wouldn't mind some magazines but maybe the kind I want…Dad should pick up.""Ted! She knows I send him some magazines that his mother wouldn't read but hey he is a young guy in the middle of fucking nowhere needing to find pleasure in some way or another.Actually it is Elliot that usually sends him the really raw porn magazines.Rather peculiar but a sweet kid who has her head on square now.She is closer to Henry than any of her other cousins and he keeps me posted about her life. The two hang out all the time and we worry about those two when they are together.Ana talks to Teddy for another five minutes then hands him back to me."Okay Dad I have to go to a briefing and then get in bed." He is ten hours ahead of us and I often forget that. I talked to Henry earlier but give them both a hug when you see them. I am okay I have to call your mom and then Ava is coming over to look at Grams veil." Ava is the first of the grandchildren to get married.Tell Poppa and Grammie and Pop Pops I love them and of course Taylor and Ga Ga. She is marrying a nice young man she met last year in Aspen when she was on a ski trip. She moved her wedding date so Teddy would be home and he is supposed to be home in two more months so the wedding is Labor Day weekend.
With Henry in law school and out of baseball, Teddy entrenched in the military and Caleb destined to go into architect and design and the heir apparent for Elliot and Brady's company, Phoebe is the one that studied International Business and now works by my side.I need to get home soon before I burst." This makes Caleb laugh."Can't you hook up with one of the 300 girl's bro?""No they are mostly enlisted and officers can't fraternize with them.After a long evening of exercise Caleb and I call it a night.I check in with Henry who is attending Stanford's School of Law and see how his finals are going and his studying for the bar.
If Elliot becomes a grandfather first he owes me ten grand. Sunny is finishing her second year of college and doing very well. She calls me every week and she has always been a bit of a weak spot for me.
