Two weeks ago I was trying to get my Visa application for my upcoming Africa trip when I couldn't figure out where I put my current passport.  Thinking I probably put it in my safe deposit box at the bank, I head across town only to discover two sets of impression of my teeth, some old paperwork, my international shot record, and one passport- which was expired.  After a quick search of the house, I called for reinforcements to assist in the search.  We looked high and low, uncovering every nook and cranny.   Although we found $400 dollars and two more expired passports, we didn't find the current passport.  I even resorted to posting an SOS message on Facebook to enlist more help in finding the MIA Passport.

My Facebook friends came up with some very interesting ideas on where the MIA passport could be, but I finally broke down the next day and spent the $225 for a new passport.

A week later, my new passport, visa application, and the two heads shots of me looking half asleep where on their way to DC for processing.

Did you know that the U.S. State Department issues the first passport on July 8, 1796.
