You might be a stampcollector if your main purpose to win Lotto is to spend the money on stamps !!

You might be a stamp collector if you watch the collectables TV show and notice that they never show stamp collecting.

They have John, twice, but both were brief and not very exciting.

They only go back to episode 18
So missing stamps, and the lady who collects body parts.

you find a stack of old love letters in a box and spend more time examining the stamps and postmarks than reminiscing over your lost romance

You may be a stamp collector if you feel that stamps are not covered often enough in the regular news outlets.

I missed reading some of the older posts (will have to find them and read) so sorry if these are repeats.

You know you're a stamp collector when you walk into the Post Office and they know your name.

and

You know you're a stamp collector when you go into a strange Post Office and just ask a simple question or two and they say 'You're a Stamp Collector, aren't you?!' and look at you in a strange way that worries me sometimes actually.

You are REALLY a stamp collector if all of the above and then some apply to you.

Your favorite days of the month are Stamp club days;

Your favorite part of the day is getting the mail on the way home to see if you got any stamps;

You save extra money for stamp auctions at the club meetings cause you know you always go a little crazy;

The other guys in your stamp club have dollar signs in their eyes when they see you walk into the room.

You check all the incoming mail at work to make sure you get all the GOOD stamps.

and the list goes onnnnnn.....

Good one Dianne! I actually have a special "in" basket at my desk where everyone brings their discarded envelopes from their mail, and many even bring them for me from home!

Now I know where all the Good stamps go. Dianne has them!

You Know you're a stamp collector if you get worried that you spent your stamp money already so you will miss out on the Good stamps at the next stamp club meeting.
