I hope you will still be watching and keeping abreast of what is happening on the discussion board.

Who else can I have such a joyful and pleasant ding dong with.

In all seriousness I know how it can feel and we all need some R n R at times so enjoy doing other things and come back when you are refreshed and full of the joys of spring.

Take Care and Keep Safe.

Thanks Ian. All is well except for Covid fatigue. I do need a break from selling, as my collection has taken a back bench to it as of late, and I need time. Count on me to still be here for:

Would you mind translating Ding Dong for some of us not versed in Scottish expressions.
Did you refer to:

Having a "Ding Dong" is having a disagreement, argument or in Ian's context a friendly disagreement.

You say "Us Scots" and then always use Stanley Gibbons, a bit strange!

Harvey:- Scott catalogues are like hens teeth here. The only place you find them is on ebay or Amazon.
SG catalogues are commonplace in our public libraries and I've never seen a Scotts in a library.

Please note that Scot refers to nationality whereas Scott is either a first name or a surname.

I always like to educate and I bet when you've read this you'll say to yourself :-

Yes it is educational............that's taught me a lesson!

All kidding aside, hurry back Ralph - both you and your stamps will be missed. But I can certainly understand why, in these weird times, you would need a break. Stay healthy and stay safe! Thumbs Up

Please make sure that you have received all the stamps I mailed and that all is well by acknowledging on the SOR invoice system. I am about to "decompose" the old books, and if anything is missing, it will be impossible to recover it once stamps are returned to my stock books or envelopes.

Given the uncertain current situation with SOR's operation, I am slowing down the production of new books until the dust settles. Just 2 books produced so far, and I am aiming for around 20 before resuming. So the 3 months mentioned above are a best case estimate.
