Stamp and deliver

That's really funny!! Ha hahahhhhaaa!!


You want  ME to help you sort out the foreign stamps in that pile?!


Oh.

You are serious. 

Well, if it's for the Retired Greyhound Trust I'll give it a go.


No. I'm sorry. They all look alike to me.


You're on your own.

Seriously. Thanks to EVERYONE who has been collecting used stamps for us. And PLEASE don't feel sorry for the Lady Of The House. She really enjoyed sorting them out. (Personally I think she needs to get out more).

She kept showing me pretty ones from America and Australia where so many of our fellow pet bloggers live. She also found some nice UK ones she'd not seen before commemorating films and stage shows.

And when she found a very old one from when British stamps were one and half penny in OLD money she got VERY excited.

If you would like to collect stamps for the RGT yourself - or find out how they use them - take a look at this website page about the RGT Used Stamp Appeal.

Winnie, I did burst out laughing too when I saw the big pile! That's a great thing for your mom to do and fun too. I have some really old stamps from the US when postage was 3 cents a stamp and some that actually said "air mail"!!! Lots of love, Debbie & Holly

When I first saw the top picture, I thought it was a big pile of money! I am sure the LOTH is up the challenge of sorting through the stamps!

Your pal, Pip

Winnie, I bet if your mum had hidden some snackies in that pile, you'd have been happy to help:)

I am collecting stamps for the RGT also, but most of my mail is franked:(

I was so happy to read at the end that the stamps weren't attached to bills! BOL! Whew! Stamps are such fun. They have such interesting and differing designs! Happy sorting :)

Waggin at ya,

That is a huge pile of stamps to sort I do not blame you for walking away. Dippy would have jumped into the pile, that would have not helped.
We have a little 12 week Lurcher he can curl up like you Winnie.
