How do you most enjoy working on your collection?

Is there an ideal way or do you just take it anyway you can get it?

When sifting through a box of stuff I just bought, it doesn't much matter.

My ideal, however, is generally a winter evening after everything has settled down... going into my stamp room, closing the door, and putting on one of my favorite soft jazz CD's while I carefully hinge stamps into one of my albums. It's soothing, relaxing, and so pleasant I sometimes spend more time at it than I probably should.

Since I work so many hours I find it hard to carve out a lot of "alone" time with my collections. I usually work on my stuff while watching TV with my wife or while she's working on something in the office.

Then there are nights like this when I have to be in the office until 9:00 and I spend time on here playing with the other kids!

Your ideal way sounds great, modern_who! The best of times!

Usually I am doing it more like LaSwabbie, though.

Hello modern.....

Guess I'm the lucky one here.....I generally get a couple of days a week home alone ALL day. I have a wide variety of music that I enjoy that usually matches what ever country I happen to be working on. Can't think of a better way to spend a day.

I like to work on mine in the front room in natural daylight; I find I get a better look at the stamps in the daylight. Plus, I have a nice view out my front windows.

Charles.

Hello dopie_13,

Do you mean two hats or two hearts?

Don't know whether you missed a key or hit the r & t simultaneously.

If you mean hearts, only one, though it's sometimes divided.

If you mean hats, I have more than you can hang a head on... though I only wear a real hat when it's raining or cold.

My Wife works doing night fill at the grocery store, she starts at 6.00pm. So I get all the time I want to do my collections (when I can pull myself away from this dang computer).

Like you greg I work long hours and in the summer even 7 days a week.

I guess I like working on my collection whenever I get a chance. It's usually in front of the TV as I have the coffee table and the dining room table to set up. My better half spends his time in his computer room so I get the entire main floor to myself with the help of fiveball and ti-gg-er (my cats) of course.

I'm in the process of setting up one of the bedrooms as my hobby room and actually have my own computer now.

I took today off and plan on spending most of the day with my collection. I'm halfway through putting stamps in my US album.

I guess all this to say Whenever I can get it!!

modern_who,

umm, that's two hearts.
I thought you might be a time lord such as the Dr.
Dr. Who is a British SciFi show.

Don't mind me, I lose track of the topic sometimes.

I love the Daleks, I saw a real one (the ones they used in Dr. Who) when I lived in England nearly 40 years ago.

Hello again, dopie13.

That's OK. I've heard of Dr. Who but never watched the show. My familiarity with doctors in British entertainment ends with Dr. No.

I've been kind of a James Bond junkie and sometimes when working on my collection I'll slip in one of the old Sean Connery 007 tapes I've seen so many times that I don't have to watch and just let it run in the background instead of music.

Modern_who is just one of those things that happens when asked to create a username at a website you found when you don't come prepared with something already in mind. No other heart. No timelord.

"Dr. No" stamps were just released in January 2008 as part of a James Bond set issued
to celebrate the centenary of author Ian Fleming's birth.

Thanks for posting those Dr. No stamps, Tom. I'll have to see about getting some just for fun.
