Superman turns 75 this year!  And Canada Post issued some wicked stamps to celebrate.  I adore the lick-and-stick souvenir sheets!  They're just asking to be put on some red, white and blue air mail envelopes.

Letters From Skye

"But, no, dearest, no letters from Paul.  Have faith.  If there's one thing you can expect from that boy, it's a letter.  And about a hundred more."

west coast delivery

A fresh batch of vintage stamp packs are now available at The Regional Assembly of Text in Vancouver and Victoria!  While in BC last week I hand delivered the packs and had the pleasure of meeting the lovely Rebecca and Brandy in person.

P.S. How great is their front window filled with typewriters?
