Birthday Gift!

Well... I'd hoped my big 5-0 would be celebrated with this guy...

But, alas, this is the date the US Visa Center has assigned
my handsome husband to have his immigrant interview

in London.  He's been prohibited from coming home until

this entire process is over, and they return his passport

to him in a few weeks with his newly minted Immigrant Visa

stamped inside.  As Alan said - at least he'll technically

be on American property - if he can't be in America!  :-)

 

Typically a mere formallity, my birthday gift will hopefully be

that we walks out of there knowing that he has been approved.

And once he has that passport back, they will finally allow

us to make plans for him to fly back to his Arizona home...

and to ME!  The biggest fan of this interepid adventurer!  

 

Long distance relationship... Can't wait for that day!:

Think positive, Elizabeth...Frank would just be getting in your way if he was there while you were pulling double shifts.

Better for him to be tramping about Olde Englande and building up some memories of what she was like before Brexit killed her off.

[Easy for me to say, eh!]
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: smile I suppose that's one way to look at it... but I rather like it when he's in my way! smile

You are right though - I do want him to store some really great memories of his homeland, before he comes back!

Birthday wishes, and fingers crossed for you, Elizabeth
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you so much, Lisl!
That would be a very nice birthday gift Elizabeth. Happy birthday.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes indeed! And it looks like he's passed... they're gonna let him in the country! smile

If they have ever seen his US pictures, they would never be able to refuse him. Anyway, happy birthday. I scarcely can believe you have birthdays. One so beautiful, should stay that way forever.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It would be great if that were some sort of influence!
Thank you, Louis! You are too kind - you flatter me! smile
Happy Birthday Elizabeth! Since you are busy at work anyway, Frank is being kind and letting you unopen his present a bit later. Patience, girl, patience!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Mary!
Yes - I'm certainly too tired to party right now anyway!
I'm trying! smile
Even though Frank is still a long way away you will be in his thoughts on this very special birthday. We're all rootin' for you and him, have a happy day.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes - and it's nice to be tucked warm and safe inside his heart! smile

Thank you so much Brian!
Happy Birthday E. I do so hope it all goes to plan and you two will be back together!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks so much, Bill! His visa was approved today!! So sooooon!!! smile

I hope by now (5.50pm) Frank will have been sent back to England with a huge smile on his face. If it helps, I certainly approve of Frank. Is this the last hurdle or is there some other red tape to go through? Will he be there to see Donald Trump elected as President (you sure you would not rather live in the UK if that's the case?) Sorry.. you may approve of him! A cracking shot from your "back garden".
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: You are right! He was sent back at 1:30pm!!!!
And it does help - as your opinion is highly valued!
I THINK this is the last hurdle... of course they keep telling us that it's now up to the border patrol agent at his port of entry (Phoenix) to allow or disallow him entry!!!
But I have faith he will be here to see Trump DEFEATED!!! smile

Oh.. a public very Happy Birthday!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you very very much, Alan!
Hope you've had a great day, very soon this waiting game will conclude.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It's been as good as it can be!
Very soon now!!! Whew!
What a view...
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Isn't it - you should come out for a visit, Larry!
... By now he must have his passport and ticket ready... yes? Great shot too.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Soon... He's been approved - but they take the passport to print the visa inside. Then they'll send it by courier to Manchester- so he'll have to drive to pick it up. Once it's signed for, we can finally get his ticket! I hope to have him home by mid- September!
