Yep, gonna happen - updated
God willing and the Rio Grande don't rise, the trip to Turkey is on. Which is to say: my passport arrived today. I can stop biting my nails (well, figuratively; I've never been a nail biter). Tickets are paid for, so now it's only - only, he says - organizing the packing. Reading up. Yes, probably learning another dozen words of Turkish, though I have abandoned hopes of doing more.
I. Am. So. Relieved.
This being the Feast of the Conversion of St Paul, and therefore my feast day, I will take the passport as my saint's day present. Thanks, y'old curmudgeon. You proved God can use the most intractible material, which gives us all hope. Pray for us.
