Stampin’ Tom

August 9, 2009


I haven’t collected stamps since I was a lad, but today I went to the post office to pick up some of Canada Post’s new Stompin’ Tom Connors stamps. I would have bought a whole roll and sent postcards to all my friends – but it only comes in a set along with 3 other Canuck recording artists I’m less enthusiastic about – Édith Butler, Robert Charlebois and Bryan Adams.

I also picked up a few sets of this series featuring some well-known roadside attractions of western Canada and the Territories:


Mr. PG (Prince George, B.C.), the Sign Post Forest in Watson Lake, Yukon, the Inukshuk of Hay River, Northwest Territories, and the giant Ukrainian Easter egg in Vegreville, Alberta. There’s more sets coming with attractions from other parts of the country.
