A letter-writing blog extolling the virtues of snail mail:
old-fashioned postal paper mail and all of its varied accessories.
that is awesome my dear Have a great day and or evening . take care and thanks for sharing and posting this .
I love your blog and read it everyday, so thanks for that.That's a funny looking stamp, even for the Dutch. I saw that OOOOO on the side of an airmail stamp the other day, on someone's online collection, which I have now lost the bookmark to; I was wondering about it as well.The quote by Shakespeare the other day is from J. Caesar, I think.All the best, Jonathan.PS. You should get a crazy snail mail any day now!
Jonathan, thanks for the compliments! Also, thanks for the tip on the Shakespeare quote.The text I can read on this stamp is not the OOOOO but it's smaller, in blue-green cursive on the yellow/green background, just before the perforation between the two stamps. It's probably pretty blurred in this photo.
Thesse stamps are Dutch gnomes from Dutch stories.The words besides Priority say: Paulus the Boskabouter. He was a famous Gnome during my childhood who had his own tv show. Puppets on a string and very laughable when I see it now but it was awesome in these days being a little kid.The other gnomes are:Pinkeltje; De Kabouter (by Rien Poortvliet); Wipneus en Pim and Piggelmee .
Nic to the rescue with the explanation of the stamp! Thanks so much! I bet I would have loved to see Paulus the Boskabouter on his tv show. I am fond of puppets and Gnomes both. :-)
