Stamps Are Cool

… right? It seems like stamp collector = nerd.  I dunno, maybe that’s true, but I never counted myself as a ‘nerd’.  Geek, yes. :P  But anyway, I have been collecting stamps for over 20 years.  I even started pen-palling (remember that? when we use to meet people from all over the world via pen […]
