Tom McCormack’s Container #19 arrives Tuesday (July 4)

I just got word from Tom McCormack that container #19 will arrive and start unloading at 7AM on Tuesday at the casa de jubalodos beside the jail in David. Turn left at the light to go to the casa de jubilados. Going right puts you at the jail.

Tom said if you wanted to play a roll in unloading the contents to be there at 7AM.

I have like 26 photos of my entire childhood. Most of you probably have that many selfies from this morning.

People keep telling me to become a stand up comedian and I’m like “Ugh, standing.”

You know you’re old when you start telling people how much cheaper things used to be.

Lilliam: You always like to run things.
Me: Well, I’m a natural leader.
Lilliam: Sorry, typo. I meant “ruin things.”
Me: Ouch.

Proof of Life 2017

Today I received my POL form from Social Security. I do not know if my letter was sent from the US in May or June, but I have mine.

I thought I would pass on the process I am using to guarantee that it is registered properly., based on instructions received from the Embassy today.

I will fill out the form, sign it and send the form along with my passport via DHL to the Embassy in Panama City. It will be entered by Embassy staff on receipt. I will also include a prepaid DHL mailer for the Embassy to return my Passport.

The other option is to mail the form directly to the US and run the risk of having it lost and SS or other federal payments shut off.

In today’s mail, I received a 1099 that had inadvertently gone to Paraguay in February and made it to David on Monday. While the postal codes were correct , it got lost. I am amazed that it got here at all.

If you are a US Citizen that is a permanent resident of Panama (and is receiving federal benefit payments) and are not aware of POL requirements, my original post is HERE.
