If you are planning to leave the country in the next couple of days….beware! The passport you applied for in April may not arrive in the 3 months (12 weeks) the passport agency promised. In fact, you may find yourself without a passport two days before you are supposed to leave for Sweden! Not to fear…just call your Congressman! My new friend Chet Edwards helped me to get my passport so that I could take a family trip to the homeland. Thanks Chet! No one else I know could have helped to get a passport in 48 hours.
