PassPort


I just got my very first passport today! It was awesome. It says on the brochure, in big letters
"YOUR PASSPORT,NOW THE WORLD IS YOURS!". Isn't that great, the world is mine, the whole wide world! How exciting to be able to see more of it now that I have this little blue book giving me permission to go. I love my passport, it is so American, so patriotic.
Maybe, now I WILL even travel further away than my local Publix & DD. I really can go anywhere.
I love that it screams out limitless opportunities and possibilities. It sounds mysterious, adventurous, like it is daring me to go somewhere I have never been:)
I really have not been anywhere. Yes, we go to the annual beach trip, and up north and out west, the furthest I have been is the world wide web checking out Figi (does that count?). There are so many places that I have yet to see, so many places to explore so many people to meet, customs to experience.
The world is my playground, get out of my sandbox, here I come..... but I hope they all speak English, have DD, use ice,have bathrooms,bottled water,a beach(bathing suit optional(LOL),and drive on the right side of the road! Let the exploration begin!!!

So I leave you with an excerpt from one of my favorite authors,Dr Seuss

"Congratulations"
Today is your day.
You're off to great places!
Your off and away!
You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself
any direction you choose.
You're on your own. And you know what you know.
And YOU are the guy who'll decide where to go!"

I love that you got your passport. I will let you be my eyes to the world if it requires flying or flying too far.

Would love to go with you on your adventure to the Riviera but do not like to fly. That cart can't come down the aisle fast enough for me (or back up) so I get a double to calm the nerves when it does finally arrive at my seat....and I am not really a drinker....but flying will do it.

Then you brought up the thong, well that is fine and good for you and Vik but mine would get lost and require surgery and there would be a beached whale siting on the news that, well, just wouldn't be appropriate for viewing....

Take plenty of pictures and I would love to see them when you get back....much love your way.
