Then again, Britain is full of place names that have spellings that come nowhere near the way they are pronounced. A good test of whether someone is a true Brit or not (I bet you could detect a spy trying to pass themself off as British this way) is to show them a list of some of these names and see if they pronounce them correctly.

That reminds me of an old Monty Python bit: It's spelt 'Raymond Luxury Yacht', but it's pronounced 'Throatwobbler Mangrove'.

Two large Desert Magic drying books arrived in good order, though the Marker Monkey got to the postage:

Cheers,

It's always exciting to get stamps in the mail, but to see how excited an 8 year old girl can get when SHE gets stamps in the mail is awesome. My daughter received a nice packet and BEAUTIFUL envelope from Dianne. Some of the people on this forum have gone above and beyond - and for that, I SALUTE YOU.

One of the APS circuits came today and I was able to pick a couple of nice stamps from it, Scott 337 and 339.

APS circuit.

Unfortunately, the APS and I are the only ones on this circuit who post with stamps. I guess the others can't be bothered.

Not today, but I just picked up two packages from my apartment complex office that arrived Friday and yesterday.

Two lots of German area that I picked up on eBay recently. One is a complete set of Allenstein #1 - 28 in mint hinged condition. The other a small lot of Soviet occupation issues. I'll be moving these to Steiner pages once I get a mount order in from Showgard.

A used 2017 copy of the Scott Classic Specialized catalog.
