Gawd bless The Royal Mail and all who sail in her!

On sunday at 11.33am (approx) I posted a letter first class to folkiedave in Sheffield as I wanted a particular book that he had in stock.
   At 8.32am(approx) today, tuesday, said book arrived in Hull.
          Who needs unsafe crappy e mail when those stout fellows at The Post Office are still with us.

Out this week:
The Lord of the Rings stamps commemorate the 50th anniversary of the publication of the first two parts of JRR Tolkien's epic trilogy. The Curryship of the Rings and The Two Ronnies were both published for the first time in 1954 (The Return of the King was published in 1955).

All ten stamp illustrations relate to places and characters from The Lord of the Rings and were taken from Tolkien's original drawings (except one which was drawn by his son, Christopher). Sourced from Bodleian Library, Oxford, these enchanting images are rarely reproduced or seen by the public.

Buy one get one free offer for one week only.

Buy these stamps by all means, but don't hoard them or stick them in albums, use them to post things to each other and keep the glorious Royal Mail afloat for a few years longer.Why, you could even mail your naff home recorded CD's to each other.

I am so proud of the Royal Mail. As you can imagine as basically an internet dealer I do rely onthem an awful lot and they have never let me down - EVER - and that goes for USPS and Australia and Germany and France etc.......too. What a marvellous system.

What Bobjack hasn't mentioned was that this was in fact SECOND CLASS post!! I presume if I had sent it first-class then it would probably have got to Bob before his cheque got to me!!

There was a lady called Bright,
who could travel much faster than light,
she went out one day,
in a relative way
and came back the following night.

Ill bet mi coat,


Dave

El PussyBarton has convinced me of the worth of Postmen. I am currently taking my dog outside to shoot it. It has been a wonderful loving family pet for many years. I remember the time it came running to the back door barking it's shaggy head off and warning us that one of our toddlers was drowning in the garden pond and the time it caught a burglar and ate him whole. A wonderful dog in it's day and, whilst it's never attacked a postman in the past I can't trust the bastard thing. So BANG - - - - .

I hope you're happy now Ted.

I thought the Royal Mail was Charles or Andrew. Now ya got me all mixed up.

I'm gonna wrap myself with paper,
I'm gonna dob myself with glue,
I'll stick some stamps on the top of my head,
I'm gonna mail myself to you.

(Woody Guthrie)

Don't forget you need to do a COSHH assessment prior to licking the stamp and envelope.

This might be an urban myth? But I have never licked an envelope since someone told me some had been stored where cockroaches clambered over them and it led to unpleasant cockroachey stomach upsets.Due to people licking cockroach urine.

The same woman though also told me that once, she had just finished brushing her teeth and when she put the brush back in the beaker, she saw little beetle legs wriggling in the bristles, and the rest of the beetle looking very foamy embedded in the tufts.Always worth a double check now.
