I am just putting together an order to a collector in Canada. Found all stamps no problem except for 1. This one is a Canadian year of the dog permanent stamp.

I searched through my stockbooks over and over, but no sign of the stamp. Who knows it may be in another country by now!

But then I recalled something and a strange feeling came over me. Just yesterday I received a letter from a board member abroad who also had some trouble filling in my order. A couple of stamps were missing. So he decided to send me a mint Canadian stamp as a compensation.

Guess which stamp he mailed? This exact Year of the dog "P" stamp I am looking for right now!

What are the odds of this happening?

Receiving his stamp within a day of realizing I need one of these? Very - very - very low!

I would say you have good luck. Go out and buy a lottery ticket.

re: The fugitive stamp

I often wonder what happens to the stamp I sometimes drop on the floor never to be seen again. ???

Stamps dropped on the floor go to "sock heaven", where else!

re: The fugitive stamp

I did find the stamp eventually! I had put it back in the package of Canadian duplicates believing it did not sell.

Of course I found it AFTER I had sealed the letter and affixed the mint copy on the envelope. So I had to reopen, correct my narrative, reseal and the buyer received an older stamp on the cover instead of a 2020 issue.

At least I am happy the order was completed 100% (for what I know :-)

Silence in the face of adversity is the father of complicity and collusion, the first cousins of conspiracy..

That Is like paper clips; paper clips hide in the
dark back corners of closets where they moult and
grow up to be wire coat hangers.
