I just got my renewed American passport in the mail today.
Good Lord. Every page of the passport book has patriotic or Americana prints and quotes and a giant eagle overlooks my lousy passport photo, along with a large American flag. This brings to mind a satirical webpage that I recently came across: “Americans for a more American America”.
I just looked at AP’s British passport and he’s just got lovely photos of little birds that are native to the British Isles. How civilized.
Pickles and I are off for a long walk and then to have tea with our fabulous friend and neighbor, Diana.
