Bonjour boys and girls!
Angie and Snooky told us yesterday that:
"This year July has 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays and 5 Sundays. This apparently happens once every 823 years."
I propose that we celebrate it with a Postal History Boutique Special Mailing in July.
The theme is FIVE (or vijf, viisi, cinq, funf, cinque, fem, piec, cinco, etc)
There are 5 rules to this Mailing:
1. You must mail on Tuesday 5th July
2. On a pentagram shaped card (or on a pentagram superimposed on the front of an envelope)
3. Your piece must have a 5-theme (see below). You have to tell the Mailing List Co-ordinator (Guess who? Yes, me) what your 5-theme) is going to be
4. It must include at least one 5-cent (or local currency equivalent) postage stamp. [If a 5-cent stamp is unavailable, then a 15, 25, 35 etc stamp is acceptable, as long as it has a 5 in it.]
5. Er, I don't have a 5th rule yet...any ideas, gang?
Possible 5-themes are:
* Renault 5
* Chanel No 5
* 5 senses
* Take 5
* 5 wounds of Jesus
* 5 Olympic Circles
* The Famous Five
* 5 books of Moses
* High 5
* etc, including of course any other(s) that you care to choose.
Please let me know -- with your full mailing address, and the 5-theme you have chosen -- if you would like to participate in this once-in-a -823-year-occasion mailing* .
* Regretfully, the Postal History Boutique cannot commit at this moment in time (ie now) to organise another mailing on this theme in 2834
5 = ΠΕΝΤΕ πέντε!
5 Olympic Circles in July! (along with the 12 Olympic Greek gods?)
Well, for sure: 5 Olympic Circles
Glinou 20 Harilaou Thessaloniki 54249 GREECE
-Fifth rule of the "5" could be that we must be 5 or 15 or 25 people on the mailing list?
"Katerina is committed" ...to which institution, duh?
Actually, Angie has it correct...
let's keep this discussion alive,
but wait until after April 12th
to launch a new attack on unsuspecting members ;-)
Let sleeping dogs lie (but Corgi always tells the truth, right?)
Five is Alive...
Then we can re-launch the idea in mid-April, and keep it 'open' for (say) 15 days, and then if it doesn't get enough support forget about it.
Now that's a good theme for a Mail Ary call! "What's in Jen's secret safe?"
Hopefully it's something very special.
Have you told Jen?
