Postcard from Las Vegas

Dee suggested this particular stamp to honor a client.
He followed through with the stamp-design people, to make sure his client,
(who produced most of the Las Vegas signs)
was recognized on the Nevada stamp.

Dee's nuts about stamps.

Do you have a passion? Do you follow through?
What do you feel proud about having accomplished?

A stamp is a tiny, practically worthless, snip of paper, first spit on and then slapped.
But it travels the world, spreads a message, represents an artistic genre,
expresses the pride and values of our nation, and eventually has enormous value.

Is there an analogy there?
(I'm on vacation. I'm leaving the meaning for you to discover.)

I used to collect stamps with my son when he was young--we sold them.

My only real passion is genealoy which you already know. I used to like blogging, but I think I'll close my blogs. No one reads them or comments, so it seems to be a useless waste of time now. I wanted family members to read---BUT THEY DON'T--the big dummies.

BTW--please read my Sher-endipity blog and see what you think--the only comment was negative.

My father used to collect stamps ad postcards and I love it. Until now, we have his collection and it is really beautiful and inspiring.
