Blm, sure you come that close when I’m out of the state! Sorry I missed you
Maggs, I agree with the mug.
Mom2B, Yeah for time with son.
Someones' moving.....??? done yet.
flower bulbs should come back next year. :)
Yokosuka, my daughter LOVED it, we visited, have to agree and so much to do.....communication is not a problem until they deploy.
made it back from vacation, had a WONDERFUL time! Sorry to see it end. Work was crazy but not the mess I expected. Of course no one went to post office, I even left my key for them, they could have went 24/7. So what a mess of bills and checks....still not caught up. And month-ends are right around the corner. Computer guy had my computer (main one) almost the whole time I was gone. so far it's working he said use it hard, let me know. Oh man...he has no idea what this week will be. hahaha
Joey will be in the states Friday, Sailor is going crazy. lol she started her new assignment yesterday.....
We're taking one of our adopted kids sister who we fostered a couple years to meet our oldest son this next weekend....then I think I'm good until Labor Day weekend. lol garden and flowers not doing so well, weather 70/50 too cold. and I came back from 88-93 :( massage therapist had both knees replaced, taking supper to her and her nurse tonight.....never ending drama.
Connor received a letter filled with pictures, too late last night to show him, but will this afternoon, yes, I'm only working half a day. I'm fed up!
duty calls, gotta run. have fun and stay safe. Hugs and Prayers
Good to hear your son loves Yokosuka...we just took him to the airport. I think he'll be on shore. He's a dentist so wherever their dental clinic is. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and any info.
Mom2b and dramasoul there is wifi inside the airport when they land. That is how my son contacted us that he landed ok. Your son's sponsor should take them to get a Japan phone once he gets there. They do not have to pay outright for there phone there like here. They just pay a monthly fee. I have not heard of being able to just get a japan number for his american iphone. They run on a different phone system here so our phones don't work. I turned my son's off but wish I had just suspended it. Cause when he came back to visit it was hard since his japan phone only worked with wifi getting a hold of him.
Tappermom my son is in Yokosuka. He has been there 2 1/2 years now and loves it. Is your son shore duty or on a ship. Mine is CT and now works in a shop. But has been out to see several times.
Hi. I have a son heading to Yokosuko. Does anyone else have a son or daughter there?
DramaSoul, yes, that is what he is doing as well. He went in to Verizon this morning and put me on the account and also to suspend his phone for this weekend. He had to supply the CO's name, rank and the base. We all have iphones and plan on facetime and also skype. My only concern in all this is confirmation that he safely arrives on base and hopeful that he will have wi-fi access to get a message to us. That is all I need :)
Mom2B...I have a friend who's son is in Japan and he got a Japanese phone number for his iPhone. Is that what you are talking about? They use Viber and he said it's free. I still have a couple of months before he goes so I want to work this out ahead of time. As I posted earlier, Verizon said we need to suspend his line and we have to supply the CO's name and rank as well as what base he will be on. We both have iPhones so we have done Facetime before.
Thanks for the clarification navymom3!
Mom2b we use facetime on the iphone and it is free. Just like skype but an iphone app. it is wonderful.
Mom2b we used to use viber. Which is a free app to text and talk. However he will need to get a new phone once he gets to Japan. Make sure you turn his off or suspend it once he gets there and lets you know he is okay. My son has an iphone and so do we so we chat on there and no app needed.
