The (Relatively) Slow Lane

When I buy stamps, I buy first-class "forever" stamps. Now and then a new design is issued before I use up the ones I have. It has been interesting to observe new graphic style as it emerges. These stamps are turning into the correspondence equivalent of classic wardrobe design. A slowly accumulating collection allows me judicious choice of style when composing a written message.

I had been planning to commission writing paper embellished with a snail. A retired letter carrier told me how offensive he finds the rhyming term, so I'll save some money and revert to USPS -30-
