@LuvMySailor: WOW! I’m glad it worked out! I’m worried some people at work will do the same thing!

well, as crashers go, this at least is a fairly nice story! I would’ve been glad to have someone who cared enough to come from so far away, even if I hadn’t been planning on them showing up! Take it as a sign that you are well loved! 🙂

Oh wow, its great you were able to have space for him & I would definitely send him a wonderful thank you for driving that far.

Its funny how you can sometimes be that special person to somebody and never know it until they do something like he did.

That’s so sweet- my philosophy is that if someone cares about me and wants to come they should be able to come- thus my large number of invites 😉

Sweet! I’m curious how you know him? What relation he is to your or your husband?

“I’m just glad the guard at the base let him in because he wasn’t supposed to.”

Anyone can get on base with a visitor’s pass.

How would he have gotten a visitor’s pass when nobody knew he was going to the wedding?

Oh my gosh…I can just imagine what the new person up the ladder from the gate guard would do if he found out a random wandered onto a military base!  Then again, I’m not military and would be far too intimidated to drive up to one of those gates in the first place!

ha ha ha! the title of this post made me laugh. poor guy, aww. yes i’ve heard you should never turn away a random unexpected guest because there’s guaranteed always going to be someone who said they were coming who doesnt show up. so there will always be room for the extra random!!!


what a funny story! 🙂 sweet!
