firstfrog2013: Off to Mom with Esso envelopes in tow.With just a few in each she can conquer one at a time,without overwhelming her.The others I'll try and sort a bit before passing them on.My thanks for great participation in my crazy give away. Feb 26, 2015 15:58:35 GMT
irishjack: How's Mom doing Frog? Feb 27, 2015 22:38:37 GMT *
firstfrog2013: Mom's doing alright,I'm still hoping she decides to move in with us down here.She has to make her own choice we don't push it,not putting pressure on her.When the time is right all she has to do is say "let's go".Thanks for asking I told her screen name. Feb 27, 2015 23:21:24 GMT
firstfrog2013: She seems thrilled of the prospect of talking stamps with others. she says that will be fun.I told her even she had knowledge that she has not even realized and can share images of her stamps.Here's hoping maybe soon. Feb 27, 2015 23:26:13 GMT
firstfrog2013: wife is off playing scrabble for couple days I'm going to start putting names and entries together tonight and only have last couple days to do updates.Good Luck to all. Feb 27, 2015 23:30:15 GMT
irishjack: Well if she is half as good with stamps as she is with raising a son, she will be a great sport and a welcome addition to TSF Feb 28, 2015 0:33:31 GMT
firstfrog2013: Remember I was a Woodstock hippie and working musician.I think Mom had her hands full.I'm still trying to pay her patience back.My amplifier stack and guitar rack occupied her living room for a number of years.Dad died when I was 22 so I assumed a role. Feb 28, 2015 15:37:14 GMT

irishjack: They had to demo that building, all the vibrations from the music damaged the structure, Ahh the good old days of club gigs. The arena rock killed that off last major concert I was at was Van Halen 50,0000 people too many people. Feb 28, 2015 22:49:09 GMT
