Hair Color

Kathy and Danny got their U.S. Passports earlier in the year for their Jamaica trip. While you are supposed to be able to just use your birth certificate and a driver’s license, the Jamaica customs agents had told me last year to go ahead and get a passport.

I went ahead and applied for one Saturday to use on our Windjammer cruise. I got to the part of the application that says: “Hair Color.” I wanted to put “straw”, but I wasn’t sure that was legal. I stepped outside where Kathy was working in the yard. “What color hair do I have? The passport application wants to know.”

“I guess you should put gray,” she said. So I did. That’s a first.
