Introducing...



Starting right now, I'll see what I can't do to showcase some highlights from my stamp collection (yes, I really am getting that old) each and every Friday.

Let's kick things off with a tribute to the Olympic games that just wrapped up. Wait... they're over, right? I haven't been watching too closely. Either way, this is a three stamp series from Germany in commemoration of the Olympic games held in their city of Munich in 1972. Really nicely stylized illustrations with great implied movement of the athletes.

Dude. Stamp collecting? Fruitless.

Philately will get you nowhere.

BOOM! THAT'S RIGHT!

I'm here all week.

So says the PROFESSIONAL LIBRARIAN.

Holler at me for a lunch break if the Ghostbusters show up and make you evacuate the premises.

Interesting stamps -- but they're from East Germany, not West Germany where the Olympics were held. That probably explains why there's no mention of Munich.
