Big big big day, the gears of the U.S.government grind exceedingly slowly, but this day brought a bunch of official papers to our mailbox.

I'm  an alien, I'm a LEGAL alien...... Green Card!!!!!!!!!!! Yayyyyyyyyyy!
Of course, it's not without conditions... Carry this card at all times. (and don't lose it?) Well, like my social security card I'll laminate a copy and carry that, keeping the original in a safe place.
And it's only valid to 2016. Before then I have to become a citizen or aply to get restrictions lifted. No, I have no idea what that means, so don't ask.

All should be well in the home of the brave and the land of the free. None of that: "Papieren, Bitte!" "Show your papers boy!" stuff.

Seriously though, everybody's been quite welcoming. Well, a lot of people think I come from New England, that's those who don't think I'm Australian.


  1. Congratulations!! How's the shoulder mending?

  2. Well, congratulations, Soub! Well done! (There's nothing wrong with being mistaken for an Aussie! *smile*)

    I, too, hope your shoulder has mended well and you are now pain-free.

  3. Well some have thought you a bit alien anyway so it's nice this is now official!
    I look forward to the papers in 2016, an entire ream of them I bet.
    How is the arm?

  4. Well done, mate! You Australians have come a long way. Greetings from Holland, capital of Denmark.

  5. Congrats! It's a first step, but a good one.
