COVID Card #88

Think cool kids don’t philate (you may say that philate is not a word, but in the Choose Your Own Reality era, I say it is)? I beg to differ. John Lennon was a stamp collector and, while he had his flaws (and some were doozies), he was pretty cool. You can see his stamp collection right now. For free. Just click here.

COVID Card 88 features images from some of the stamps in Mr. Lennon’s collection, as will as a peak at a personal item of his.

The United States Postal Service has been hit hard by the pandemic. Controlling elements of the Federal Government (the president and Republican Senate) do not want to provide aid to the service. So, it’s up to us. It may seem insignificant, but if we all sent just a few letters a week, we could help ensure that our daily, free mail delivery service continues. For the past (see the card number above) days, I have drawn a card each day and mailed it to someone the next day (none are sent on Sundays; two are sent on Mondays). Please consider mailing cards and letters while we still can for 55 cents (first class letter postage). If the USPS fails, you could find it costs $8 or more to send a letter. And that’s just one of the ways we will all lose if the USPS shuts down.
