I now have two passports from two different countries. I'm not sure if either issuing country would be thrilled with the news, but as far as I know there are no laws being contravened. Now if I go to Cuba, that will be another ball of wax. (Suddenly curious about that expression, anyone know the origin?)
Summer seems quite over today. Yesterday was chilly and rainy all day, it reminded me very much of January in Southern California. I'm going to need an actual coat this morning, but this is bad because it stinks. (I have been meaning to take my coat to the cleaners because the wool lining is impregnated with smoking stench.)
I can't believe our old thousand dollar tv (new 6 years ago) does not even generate one phone call at $200. It's 36" too! We put it back in the bedroom for now, but it's so big and blocky that it kind of cramps the space. And really? Picture tube televisions are worthless now? I had hoped to at least pay the first payment on the new tv with the proceeds from selling the old one. We did notice that there was only one store that we visited that still carried (one) the old style tv. It was a 27" for $329. When we saw that, we thought, "Who would buy one of those these days?" I guess I see now why our old one might need simply to be given away.
