I'm officially joining the forum (I've been reading but not posting for about a year). I collect stamps from the US, Germany and the countries they occupied during WWII, and any topicals that interest me that week. I'm looking forward to talking to all of you about stamps!
Good to meet you Jed, I'm JIM from Chicago. Am also a new member here and finding everyone to be most helpful. I related very much to your comment on topicals. Seems I go back and forth on that one never having decided . . . yet, which topicals to collect. I'm pretty new at all of this. I, too, collect Germany but tend to veer more towards Saar and Thurn &Taxis (both Northern and Southern). In any case, welcome!!! JIM
