Yay!! How about That?!

For new Followers, you might like to read this post before you go any further, and you will see that I had been having a bit of trouble applying for my new Passport.

But, guess what, it's just arrived (very quickly I thought) AND they accepted the photos that I sent up to them where I was wearing my glasses!  Result!!

So much for those jobsworths at the Post Office.  I'm tempted to go up and wave my new passport in front of them - BUT, I won't do that because I'm a nice person. LOL!

Anyway, I just thought I would share this piece of good news with you, as you had to listen to me complaining the other day.

Tanya (a Taste of T) said...

Yay!!!! I strongly dislike my passport photo but hey, have passport will travel :)

becca said...

yay glad you finally got it

Thisisme. said...

Becky - how cool would that be, me actually being able to spend some time with you. I often wonder about my friends in America and if their accents are all different from one another!

Bouncin'Barb - wouldn't that be good - me strutting my stuff on Myrtle Beach!!! LOL!

Jumble - thank you. You'd all start panicking like mad, if I suddenly said I was coming over!

Becca - yes, I've got it!

Thisisme. said...

Tanya (A Taste of T)- I don't suppose many of us actually like our Passport Photos :( It's because we're not allowed to smile, so that's not a good start, is it?!

Olive Cooper said...

Ha! I have a lovely southern accent. Some would say it is not lovely but I like it very much. We once had a pastor from South Africa with a very proper British accent (lovely) and he thought I had a fabulous southern accent.

Thisisme. said...

Olive - Ah'm sure your southern accent is wonderful ma dear!!(Is it like something out of Gone With The Wind?).

Cinnamon said...

I am glad to hear this, and wanted to thank you for coming over the the Cinful side of things to comment on my blog. Thank you sweetie.

amber01sw said...

So glad you finally got it. I dread when me, hubby and the kids go to get ours when we get to go on that dream cruise!

Odie Langley said...

Dear Thisisme,
I am enjoying your writing style so very much! You have a lot of energy, passion and a lovely sense of humor. I know just what you feel like when dealing with official business. Congratulations on your new passport complete with a photograph that includes glasses. I am so nearsighted that I probably need them while sleeping so that I can see my dreams more clearly. Thank you for visiting and commenting today:) P.S. Where will you travel with the new Passport?

Thisisme. said...

Cinnamon - it was my pleasure to visit! I shall be over there again, so be warned.

amber01sw - what's that? Dream Cruise?! Wow! How wonderful - when is all this going to happen?! Be a great subject for your Blog!

Odie - thanks. You too.

EmptyNester - that comment did make me laugh!!!

Bethe77 - thank you.

kneesandpaws - gosh, thank you so much for your lovely comments. You are too kind! I liked your comment about needing your glasses to see your dreams. LOL!! My daughter, son in law and granddaughter live in Paris, so I go there quite often.. I am going to Spain in September, and hopefully there might be something in between!!

Chatty Crone said...

Okay I am happy for you - where are you going to go and when?

Belle said...

Now you can go swim across the Mississippi River! Glad you got it, I need a new one next year and I hate to see my picture on that one.

Stella said...

So glad you have your passport so you are free to roam. Seems like it takes forever to get them after you apply. Thanks for stopping by to see me and the lovely comment on my header.

Thisisme. said...

Chatty Crone - Thank you. Paris quite often to visit my family and Spain later in the year.

Belle - LOL! Yes, I could swim that river, couldn't it?! You've got such a pretty face, so you haven't got anything to worry about.

Stella - nice to see you here! I was lucky, because mine only took just over a week. I was very impressed!
