It has been cold by Florida standards – not at all pleasent for snowbirds and other tourists, but great for us stamp folk. We are not tempted to go to the beach or potter around in the garden and we can concentrate on our stamp collections and exhibits. 

Jean and I attended both the APS Exhibition in Atlanta and the Sarasota Annual Show these past two weeks. We met up with many old friends (one couple even presented us with a bottle of scotch!) and it was evident that many a collector was upgrading a collection, or maybe improving an exhibit.

Fort Lauderdale and Naples are on our itinery in the next several weeks – hope to see you there!
