You are coming up soon to 10,000 posts I see and a new bauble - we can leave your avatar section as is, or change it to Thread of The Month Winner instead .. let us know!

This is pleasant surprise given the other nominations and I thank all involved.

I also humbly thank those congratulating me.

I enjoy the Stampboards community and hope I can continue with my inputs for the benefit of all including myself trying to sort and rearrange what I have.

I must admit that the new easy way of entering scans is fuelling up my inputs

Thanks to all the people and the ´engines` that run this excellent board.
