21st Century Letter Writing

So, here I find myself writing more letters than Jefferson ever did.  OK, well, maybe just the same number of letters that Jefferson did.

Possibly fewer.

Regardless, some bait for this behavior has been dangled by our very own United States Postal Service for decades.  Small wonder.  They were basically the only game in town.

**** WARNING: PHILATELY AHEAD! ****

Not wishing to be “Booooooooooor-ing!”,  I now purchase unused postage stamps online fer cheap.  Yep, ya gotta lik em.  Here we have a series of stamps I recently purchased.

You will note that in order to actually use the stamps, you must tear great works of art asunder.  So instead, you become… a collector.  Whoops.

Rest assured, I will be tearing these out and using them to send missives to my scattered friends.  This last bastion of the Federal Government’s good deeds shall not go down without a fight.  Shove yer Eeeeee-mail!  ~TH~

    • Ha HA! I may need to get that one custom made. So nice to see American leaders using their own language choices to forward the vocabulary of our young people. (Yes, that’s sarcasm).

  1. I legit don’t care about stamps, too nerdy for me!, but I actually geeked out about those for a moment. Yea, I’d save them, too. I found my way here and I really like this blog. I look forward to following.
