re: Happy Thanksgiving USA !

Although our northern neighbors are ahead by several weeks (as is often the case), dawn will soon break on another Thanksgiving Day in the States.

And like so many others I have much for which to be thankful, including the fellowship realized across the past couple of years on Stamporama. Without exception, every query posted has garnered a response. In some cases leading to lengthy off-line conversations.

Despite the passage of more than five decades of WW collecting, I still realize joy from pawing through the proverbial pickle jar filled with what will be largely low-value stamps. Perhaps at the heart of it we all possess a bit of the “treasure hunter”.

Best wishes for a safe and enjoyable holiday. Take a moment to identify an organization that could benefit from your philatelic largesse.

Calstamp, i am with you...i look at my Paypal balance and think " i should buy some stamps" then i look at whats available on the internet and i turn back to my own horde or covers and stamps.Most of the worldwide stamps offered are post 1969, i look for the golden oldies.

re: Happy Thanksgiving USA !

I echo the sentiments expressed by everyone in this thread.

As an historian and a postal history collector for whom the covers that still contain their original correspondence are very special treasures, I thoroughly enjoyed the Thanksgiving opinion piece by Margaret Renkl that appears in today's New York Times. She expresses her thanks for a resolution she made last New Year's to write a note (a letter) each day of the year. She describes the power of the act of writing and sending a personal letter, power that an email does not have. And the mail system is a big part of that. She notes that the resolution may have been prompted partly by "the leftover stamps my father-in-law passed along whenever he worked on the stamp collection he had maintained since boyhood." She writes, "With every renewed effort (to write a letter), I marvel again how easy it is. How it takes almost nothing to write just a few lines, nothing to fix a stamp in the corner, to walk the letter out to the mailbox and lift the little metal flag to tell the mail carrier to stop at this house. I wish I had known long ago how much pleasure I would take in lifting that little red flag." She concludes by expressing gratitude at Thanksgiving for the people she wants to reach through her letters, and notes that they are "only a mailbox away."

I just read this. It is very sobering.

I'm glad you posted that link, D2M2.

I quit celebrating "thanksgiving" in the early 1980's when I realized how it turned out for the Native Americans. This really is a national day of Mourning for them. No group of people have suffered as much as they -- 400 years, and still counting.

I wonder just how many members bothered to read
the link posted or ever heard of the events of
King Philip's War.
I just wonder ?
