Animals in the wild - Sunday Stamps II
I looked for a lion stamp as a tribute to Cecil. Unfortunately I could not find one, nor one of a dentist in the wild. Czechoslovakia has some fine animal stamps. Here are four that I like in particular. Wild Cat & Beaver Brown Long-Eared Bat & Marmot You n...

The Camera - Thematic Photography
I rarely took good photos with cameras before digital cameras came along. It was as recent as 15 years ago that I bought a FinePix 2600Zoom and gave my Olympus 10 to my younger son (who promptly sold it!) FinePix 2600Zoom I was upset when the FinePix stuck ...

Postal Theme - Sunday Stamps II
I've used up all my postbox stamps before so I shall have to use some stamps that I didn't realise were part of a postal issue. I'm sure however that no one would forget to use the postal code if they had a stamp like this. The next three stamps were 'scatt...
