#380 Stamps

I received a birthday card the other day and the postage stamp caught my eye. Looking a bit further I found that the Royal Mail in the UK has a selection of stamps marking the 50th anniversary of the Royal Shakespeare Company, designed by Marion Deuchars.

Excellent designs, in my opinion, the stamp inspired me to take an interest and *maybe* even reread Henry 5th (part 2) which I last looked at back in school in the English Lit. class.

But are postage stamps going the way of vinyl LP covers - small pieces of art that have been overtaken by the progress of pixels?

#379 Route 66

I'm now on Route 66 and to celebrate we went to my friend Chelo's for lunch.

She served her signature dish of Paella Bacalao and also a birthday cake with 66 candles! Al and Chelo are in this picture and Sally and Denise are just round the corner :-)
