You folks who know about postage stamps and first day covers and all that stuff, I think I made a horrible faux pas by opening the cellophane envelope that this really nice PC from Finnbadger came in. It was actually postmarked on the cellophane, even though the postage (Fire Monkey) was inside. I have a feeling this was a boo-boo, philatelically speaking.

Anyway, I kept the cellophane and so maybe all is not lost. And I LOVE the monkey!

Finnbadger also sent a really nice Charley Harper bird card -- such nice graphics.

Thanks Phillip -- I'm sorry if I screwed up a lovely gift! Chalk it up to ignorance. I did, however, watch Minions last night and almost hurt myself laughing. What a great movie!

I did not know it would arrive in cellophane - mostly they just go 'naked' in the mail. Don't worry, it is not something 'precious' that needs to hide behind plastic.
