Luckily I didn't have to wait long, mind the postie waited even less time - knocked on my door, I went straight away to answer, postie already left with the package sitting on the chair next to the door.. He/she wasn't bothered waiting for a signature.

Nice and quick on receipt of this purchase from Glen!

And many thanks Glen for the freebie Stamp News!!!

Strong winds, pelting rain. Not the best of days to be receiving stamps in the mail but luckily Glen seals them up well. The small envelope feared worse and was quite damp but the stamps stayed dry in the hagner, though I'm glad I'm near the start of the postie's run otherwise things might have been quite different.

The two latest deliveries have resulted in these stamps from Glen & Margo.

I spoke to the delivery guy and he said there is more than 1 million packages in the warehouse (here in Canberra). Lucky I learnt patience!

Patience is a good thing in these times. Lucky we have stamps to keep us busy.

Ordered a book (Brusden-White Vol. 12 "Stationery") from Glen.
It was posted May 25 and safely arrived June 13 in Germany = 3 weeks.
So that luckily did not went by ship and there is a label "air mail printed matter".

And yes, the stamps are immaculate under the cellobag.
The camouflage worked as intended :D

Currently I've lost my latest franking from Glen so I'll show that at a later time.

However, check out Glen's classy penknife, all the necessary tools including Flat and Phillips head screwdrivers.

This one arrived from Glen but unfortunately Dr Evil of Black Pen got to this one even though it was clearly postmarked. There was a plastic cover over Winx & Phar Lap but sadly the plastic was not quite large enough & they were not unscathed:

Dr Evil needs to have his black pen shoved where the sun doesn't shine. :idea:
