Notice Type: Welcome Notice

Fourth of July Fireworks 2012, Watson Island, Miami, FL

 

I know, I know... 4th of July has been over a month ago. I kept this shot for a special occasion. I wasn't what this is going to be, though.

 

Getting a job again? First day back at work?

 

Well, not really. Even though I was stoked to get my "old" job back. My former Department even agreed to me keeping my computer including its two huge screens (I shouldn't have deleted all my stuff from it) and my chair. I am surprised security didn't say anything when I wheeled my stuff out the door... LOL

 

I also could keep this shot for New Year's or next Independence Day. Yes? No? Maybe?

 

Then Friday night I picked up the mail and found a by now all to familiar envelope in between all the junk mail. I wasn't sure if I should open it or not. Well I did!

 

It dryly stated:

 

Notice Type: Welcome Notice

 

Welcome to the United States of America

 

This is to notify you that your application for permanent residence has been approved. It is with great pleasure that we welcome you to permanent resident status in the United States.

 

I have been waiting so long for this...

 

So if this isn't a special occasion then I don't know what is! :-)
