I have a problem.
I have two precious objects both arriving today.
One is a 500 off-paper WW mix from eBay.
The other is my Husband, who I haven't seen for 4 weeks.
You see my dilemma?
Who knows what treasures I might find in my kiloware. An elusive set-finisher, an unidentified mystery to send me off on a quest for info...
My husband is a more known quantity. He is a 1963 Australian issue, imperforate. Not Mint, but in reasonable condition, with only light cancelling.
My husband will probably expect me to talk to him. My eBay goodies will be whispering seductively...
Any advice?

I'd go the what ever arrives first route , hopefully the 500 off-paper arrives first - get that sorted and then your second precious object can have your complete devotion.

Now if only your husband felt the same way about stamps as you did, then you could combine the two.

<That> is a very funny post,
I cackled into my hot chocolate.

I'll be sending you the bill for my new keyboard.

Rod222! You hypocrite! You have just warned me of the evils of chocolate in another thread, and all the while you were DRINKING the stuff!!
I have no sympathy for your keyboard now.

Stamp obsession 40+ yrs.
Spouse 20 yrs.

Finding that 1 in a million stamp.
Finding another Spouse?

Losing half my collection in the divorce!

I guess Spouse wins!

PROBLEM SOLVED
eBay stamps did not appear. So much for "Immediate Shipping". Still, I will give seller positive feedback anyway - he's probably saved my marriage...
Oh, and rod222? "mhmmddhghhhadnnmunmm!"
Sorry, didn't you catch that? My mouth was full of chocolate

stampgal,
From one girl to another, this is really a no brainer. If I was you, I know that I would have more fun peeling the hinges off from my hubby, that I haven't seen in 4 weeks and that I knew would complete a set rather than 500 old stamps.

BTW, if you find anything really interesting,...of the stamps of course.

Donna, you know, you're absolutely right! You guys (and my stamps)have been great company whilst I've been Home Alone for 4 weeks, but lets face it, you can't get a cuddle from a stamp
(Anyway, he's away again on Saturday for another two weeks, so I can sort my kiloware then)

Yeah you can; but they are a bit clingy.

The only thing that would get you guys away from the stamps is if your spouses wore sexy lingerie with pasties, of either Queen Victoria or the penny black, God save the Queen!

I've been told that I am married and have children.

I will investigate this statement after I finish filling up my Scott International Part IB.
