I Saw My Johnny!!
|Yes, I'm looking at YOU Kden!!|
I saw an announcement on FB that my FAVORITE Deadliest Catch Captain would be in Coeur d' Alene, ID one Saturday to sign his children's books. He wrote and illustrated them while he was laid up with broken ribs last year after getting thrown off of a bull. It was during a car show, which I normally would avoid; but I would have walked over hot coals to get there. He does a lot of appearances in Coeur d' Alene because his Mom is from the area and he considers it his second home. And good for us, it's just a quick 45 minute drive across the border.
It took us awhile to find a place to park with the re-routed streets but we walked right to the store where he would be. We were 15 minutes early and there were only 2 girls ahead of in line. He was right on time which was kind of surprising. He was very relaxed and happy to just chat and take pictures. Some people asked questions and it was really nice event without a big crowd. I reminded him of the last time I saw him; stranded in Dutch at the motel. He said...and I quote "I think I remember that". Sure maybe he was bullshitting me but I don't care, I took it anyway. I wish I had brought the picture from that day for him to sign, darn. Daughter bought a book for him to sign as well as a picture for a friend and we bought a few cans of smoked salmon. I made him sign that too. I know, I'm crazy.
I handed my camera to the guy behind me and asked if he could take a picture of all of us.
We all huddled together and the guy said, "Uh, you're blocking your husband".
I replied, "I don't care". But I scooted over closer to my Johnny so hubby could be seen. Husbands....sometimes they just get in the way of your boyfriends.
