Admin: People come up and ask if they can have a picture with him, he gets more attention and loves every minute of it. Oct 4, 2014 23:05:23 GMT
rod222: Lovely story.... Oct 4, 2014 23:50:33 GMT
Andy Pastuszak: I really hope I find some time tonight to mount some stamps. When did life get so busy? Oct 8, 2014 13:58:55 GMT
rod222: One can spend the first 40 years gathering possessions, and the next 40 divesting of them. Playing with stamps gives one that little window of peace amongst the mayhem. Oct 8, 2014 19:36:25 GMT
firstfrog2013: I must admit I'm still gathering possessions and I'm past sixty so maybe first seventy years on that and next seventy parting with them? WAIT that would make me on overtime.... Oct 9, 2014 2:47:07 GMT
Londonbus1: I have been saying I am going to do this or that with my collection for years....but rarely do. And life just gets busier. I don't think I will ever find the time. Oct 12, 2014 12:07:03 GMT
firstfrog2013: I want a true day off.Haven't had a day to call my own in quite awhile now and new arrivals are piling up.I did manage to mount that forgery and put her next to the bell's express same general era. Oct 12, 2014 14:42:19 GMT

firstfrog2013: Any word from Zuzu yet ?? Oct 15, 2014 4:24:06 GMT
Philatarium: We were able to touch base a couple of weeks ago. She's pretty occupied with life and family right now (we all know how that can be!), but will check back in once things have settled down a bit. Oct 16, 2014 2:49:14 GMT
tomiseksj: I'm glad to learn she is okay. Hopefully things will settle down enough for her to return to the fold. :) Oct 16, 2014 13:38:35 GMT
Philatarium: Agreed, Steve. She has a very pleasant style that complemented the board very well. Oct 16, 2014 20:48:25 GMT *
firstfrog2013: Makes me HAPPY to know she's alright.I miss her,she is a cheerful soul. Oct 17, 2014 2:56:23 GMT
Philatarium: Indeed! Oct 17, 2014 3:42:25 GMT
