Hi Guys.

Danny sent me a Fuzzy VAM last week. My wife whisked it off me before I could open it as its a present from her. I did get a chance to photograph the stamps though...... Felt like going back in time,

1/2p and dated 1983. I was 13 years old and coming to the end of my Action Man phase and starting to find fun with girls and booze!!! I was a wayward kid.

1990. Those stamps are 23 years old, over half my life!!!!!

I havent even had a chance to open the parcel yet Danny and you have managed to put a smile on my face. My brother collects stamps so they'll be going to him and he is delighted.

Thanks Jim. Can't remember exactly when we stopped using 1/2pence pieces. I remember wishing they would keep them. When I was little going to the sweet shop with 2p and getting two rhubarb and custard and two black jacks all at 1/2p each was great. Is it Canada that stopped using 1 cent pieces yesterday?

I know the price of a stamp went up 1 cent here recently.
Not sure who quit selling the 1 cent stamp???
The US has mainly been selling forever stamps. So if a person bought 200
forever stamps those stamps are good forever no matter if there is a price increase...

It's more a growing interest at the moment. I'm sure she would like them though Dal and it may well lead to a collection. She was very interested when I told her my dad and Bro still collect stamps and that I did as a kid. :-)
