hi Val, your postcard arrived yesterday, amazingly all in one piece, the flap flapping as it was intended, or not? but still attached. Love the captions. It will be displayed ont he STG (not an illness) or perhaps the BG (not a group, only the Bag Gallery) around the Jubillee celebrations.
Ahaaaaa, thank you for the explanation. The Dutch equivalent is 'heitje voor een karweitje' = a kwartje for a little job like mowing the law, bringing the empty bottles to the supermarket, taking the dog for a walk.
Today we celebrate the 172 anniversary of the one penny black, valid from the 6th of may 1840! Join the celebration by thinking of this late happening/contemplating the beauty of it all with thousands of fellow postal geeks like me. Make the toasting in tea, coffe, water, wine or pastis of your choise.
