Thanks, Walgreens!

We're planning a trip to FilkONtario in April, but Katie's passport has expired, so last month we went in to have it renewed. As part of the application, we submitted a passport photo that we had taken and printed at the local Walgreens. The photo person there looked at the shot and carefully shifted it so that it was lighter before printing the final copy.

Turns out that was a mistake. The passport office has now rejected the photo, so we need to have it retaken, and then we're going to have to send it down there via some fast mail service so that we have a chance of getting her passport back so we can make the trip.

We had better not be paying for the reshoot.
