Did you expedite it? If not it could take up to 60+ days. I think you can check on the status, but give it at least 3 weeks before you do.
I didn’t expedite it. I didn’t know that was an option.
It’s been two days shy of five weeks now.

Re: Who's going to Dublin, Ireland on September 21, 2019?

When I renewed my passport, it took 36 days to get the new one. I only know that because I posted in this thread the day I mailed the renewal and again the day the new one came in the mail. :lol: And it’s been something like 33 days since I renewed mine, and the lady did tell me it would be 4-6 wee...

Re: Back to reality Saturday @ the MSC

Hello to anybody who’s anybody. Not going to comment on this $&#%ing weather of ours, because it absolutely $@~>s. Seems like early March in Eastern Iowa. Kenny Chesney did a concert at the Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines on Thursday. It’s about an hour & a half drive. I wasn’t going to go, but then...

Renewed my passport a month ago because my current one expires in August.
New one still hasn’t arrived. I’m getting VERY antsy and impatient.

Happy Mother’s Day to all the Mothers out there- I hope it’s a day of joy and contentment for all. This is my first Mother’s Day without my mother and I’m doing much, much better than I thought I’d be. I put some flowers on the grave yesterday, and texted a photo of it to my brother, sister, and nie...

Re: Sunny SATURDAY@ the MSC

The second one was You'll Acompany Me That and “Ship of Fools” are my two favorite Bob Seger songs. Both make me think of a different person who was once part of my life. “Ship of Fools” makes me think of Captain Paul Butcher, my Commanding Officer of the Cruiser I served aboard in the U.S. Navy (U...

Socks?
Not me. Too warm for socks here.

Another overcast day with more rain expected.
Too warm for socks here too. Although it’s quite windy and overcast, the temperature is all the way up to 46 or 47 degrees.

Good morning BN. My particular harbor is Bar Harbor, Maine. There is a town park above the town pier. We sit till sunset and watch children play. Do you have a particular harbor? Lunenberg, Nova Scotia for me. I like to sit on the deck and have brunch at the Admiral Benbow above the harbor (harbour...

Hey Garry!! Are you okay during this flooding going on? :( Hi, Penny. Yes, I’m fine. All the major flooding has been in Western Iowa along the Missouri River- 240-250 miles away- and in Eastern Iowa (specifically Davenport, IA and the Quad Cities) along the Mississippi River, about 65 miles away. I...

Re: HAPPY EASTER@ the MSC

Easter greetings to all.
It’s a very beautiful day in Eastern Iowa today, so I think I’ll make me a lunch and drive to Kent Park and feed the ducks. They seem to love pistachio nuts.
I guess this means I’m officially old. [smilie=asa.gif]

Very sad, very devastating news from France. I was there in 2015 and got some amazing photos. I was there at the perfect moment- 12:00 noon on a Sunday. All the bells chimed in unison. I’ll never forget the joy I felt for those precious moments. My heart breaks for the great people of France, who we...
