Getting a Passport

Well we did our first step to take our 50th wedding anniversary trip to England this summer. I filled out the application for me and Jackie to get our passports. Holy cow it costs a lot to get passport these days. $270.00 plus the price of getting a photo taken. 

We will get the photos taken the first of next month and then go down to the city hall, pay our money and put the applications in for processing. It is getting kind of exciting even though it is month off, it is something we have looked forward too for a long time. 

We both wanted to go to England to see the history there. We plan on taking a guided tour, and hope to see all the highlights of the place. Most of the tours go even up to Scotland so we will be traveling a lot. Jackie really wants to see Stonehenge, but I am more into seeing some of the castles. After all we are both decedents of royalty there and maybe we will reposes one of our old family homes. Ha Ha.  

Now that I have lost weight, I am quite confident that I will be able to do the walking that will be required but Jackie is quite worried that her back may cause her some problems. She is going to go back to the doctor and see if there is anything she can do or take to make it more possible to go and enjoy herself without having to not attend some things because of back pain. I hope she can get something fixed before we leave. 

We are getting excited and now all we have to do is pay for it.
