Global Forever stamps aren't issued all that often, so I confess that I hope for something really neat. I'm ... well, the echeveria doesn't move me.

I like it a lot, but that's because I know what's coming out next and I REALLY DON'T LIKE THOSE. (It's sports balls.)

A great month for stamps, I love 'em all! Thanks for keeping us in the know ;)

My disappointment regarding indigenous succulents notwithstanding, I'm pretty happy about the Delicioso stamps. I'll have to make sure I send some letters to people from DEXCON this summer, and use the empanadas stamps -- there's a little place in Morristown called "Raul's Empanadas", and it is legend. When the gaming geeks (whose number I proudly count myself among) descend on Morristown for the various gaming conventions, the place (so far as I can tell) is packed from the minute it opens until the minute it closes every day.


I think the Robert Panara stamp is the best of this bunch. Quite an impact on so many lives!


Succulent > sports balls for sure! It's super pretty. Thanks for the background on Panara, totally nabbed some of those too.
What I'm really, really excited for are those eclipse stamps coming soon!!


Hens and chicks succulents have survived lower Midwest winters for 20+ years, so naturally I wanted those and got them.
