Doodad Note:
Philately
1 February 2018

ΒΆ My stamp collector kit arrived today. It’s not really for me, though. I gave the very same one to my grandson for Christmas. Only later did it occur to me that the only way I could inspire him to open it, long distance, was by writing to him about it, and for that I would need the same kit. 

Now I can finish the monthly letter in which I enclose cash that I know is much appreciated by the recipient. 

We’ll see how this experiment works. My grandfather collected stamps, and he got my mother into it for a while. For me, philately is the foundation of everything that I know about the world.
