The Missing Passport Post

  • Hey Tom, I can soooo relate to this! Not quite as serious as your situation, but a couple weeks ago while visiting Rex and Tamara Harris, I lost $20 out of my pocket. I knew I last had it when we had been out to dinner. I checked pockets of pants, the bathrooms, suitcases, washer, dryer etc. With no luck. Tamara had also misplaced something and while checking her car for her missing item, she found my $20 bill in backseat of her car. This is a Great lesson in that the only time we truly fail at anything is if we quit.

      So true!

      Typing this from plane in Detroit en route to Amsterdam. About to close doors and take off soon.

  • So glad you found the passport in the end! I had this thing with my (forgetful) mother, who couldn’t find her TV remote for days. A friend of hers had already “looked everywhere.” So, I thought, “Where is it definitely NOT going to be?” and that’s where I looked, and that’s where I found it. 🙂
