Canada cost me 150 dollars (which I was saving for my neck tuck)

So I went, finally, on Saturday to apply for my passport. I got a whole boatload of documents and went to the post office to get my picture taken and send in the application. They told me I didn’t need all the documents, just my birth certificate and drivers license. I hope they know what they are doing. Although they do it all the time. I think. It costs 110 dollars for the passport and another 40 for, um, I’m not sure. Taking this digital picture I guess…


Seriously?  Is it illegal to airbrush your passport photo? I wonder if government workers take an in-service on how to make people look less than attractive. Looking at this photo,  I’ve come to the realization that it’s definitely time to consider a bit of a tuck. You see,  the real reason I wrote this blog today with this picture is to send out a plea for money to pay for my neck fix.  Please.

So, when I tell people I am getting a passport the first question is “Where are you going” to which I answer “Canada”. Because I could drive there in a day. And I could go over the border with my passport. And I do love a little Canada now and then. I couldn’t ask for a better neighboring country.

Oh, and speaking of neighboring countries with a little monarchy thrown in-Look what’s coming to a Mall of America near you!

Yep, I am talking THE Diana. Everything Diana. I almost got the vapors when I saw the ad for it.

The dates are completely saved in my book-it’s actually already started and I don’t know how it got by me.

Because of the comments made by Dave……

me-We have to go to the Mall of America-they are having a Diana exhibit.

Dave-What? No one wants to see the Dali Lama


Dave-What kind of diorama?

…….he is not invited anymore.

Lastly, we got a bit of new furniture which I set up in the basement. Only tonight we put another leaf in the center table and I switched the sewing machines around.


It’s still a bit cluttered in this picture. I’ll take a better one next week. I now have 5 tables in my craft room. Jeesh. But there is space to craft.

Jack liked it too.


It’s almost March which means spring is just around the corner. I wonder what the weather is in Canada?

Your passport pic is heaven next to mine. Dude did NOT even tell me he was taking it.

Therefore, I'm in half blink and my mouth is jacked cause I was talking.

I really look highly intoxicated in it. And I ain't joking.

Now I'm all ticked about it again.

Your passport photo is SO much better than mine. We were in the midst of a torrential downpour the day we went to City Hall to pick up the application and have our photos taken. I look like a drowned rat.
