New United States Postal Service Stamps

The post office is featuring a new set of stamps for Pets!
I was mailing a textbook I had resold on Amazon today (good riddance)....Had to look up the proper spelling, found here:
good riddance

"said to express relief at being free of a troublesome or unwanted person or thing."

So good riddance textbook.  Yes, I think that's about accurate!  These stamps brought a smile to my day, and I bought a few books to have on hand.  These stamps are cute, but the colors and detail of the printing is a bit lacking.  The stamps are "Forever" stamps, which means that if the postage rate goes up or down, the stamps will still be accepted for mailing a first class standard letter.

Did you have a stamp collection as a child?  I did.  Somewhere I still have it.

I never collected stamps, except, now this will date me. They used to sell stamps that you bought and then could trade in for a savings bond. I was real big on doing that. I'm glad to see this post today because I have a blog friend that sent me an item she made and I want to give her stamps to reimburse her for the postage. I'll look for these.
xx, Carol
