Sorry Less can't agree, had just split from my wife and she took the flaming stamp album with her:D

You weren't one of those modern day couples that dampened the back of the stamps with a sponge instead of licking them? If so no wonder there was no bond between you.

Of course these days because of health and safety, each stamp would have to be wrapped in a sterile envelope to prevent the transfer of germs because of all the people handling them.

Never used my tongue on any stamps Less, Green Shield a sponge and causer of water, stamps in the alumum always used fixing hinges:D
