My Passport

In my dream, I lost my passport; I was searching high and low Though it wasn’t clear exactly where I was supposed to go. I was frantic as I rooted Through my bag with all its stuff As the line was inching forward And I knew I couldn’t bluff. But at last, I seemed to find it, Zip-lock baggied, buried deep, So I stuck it in a pocket Knowing it would safely keep. The analysis is easy; There’s no need for Dr. Freud. With my passport gone I couldn’t travel, Which I’ve so enjoyed. It’s ironic, though, that in the dream There was a happy end. In reality, my travel now’s No better than pretend.

MY passport ran out a few years ago. With the pandemic still raging here and abroad I'm not upping my passport. As for my poem on thr mallard duck, it's true. Kids and teens are cruel and heartless at times. That few of them outgrow them I have my doubts. Thanks for thr stop y, Ilene. / M

Everyone's worst nightmare, but it's looking grim travel wise, not sure if we'll be going off in August. This virus is starting to get on my nerves. Tom

Ha, ha! Nicely done, Ilene!! … Pardon my aggression, but why not hop aboard AA next week? After all, they full-scheduling their planes. No physical distancing at all. Perfect for us 'juniors,' eh?! As Dorothy said, 'There's no place like home!' ~ Toto, too

The safest place! Until airlines stop packing people in like sardines, dreams are the safest touring vehicle! Stay safe! Aloha! Rico

Yes all travel plans are thwarted at the moment no idea if our holiday in November is to go ahead ... but i would prefer to defer it until next year. Let's hope its not too long before we have freedom to come and go as we please but i think life will never be the same as we were used to. :-( hugs Jan xx
