Reunited With My Old Stamp Collection

Recently I was fortunate enough to be reunited with my old stamp collection. I had not seen it for at least 40 years, and the circumstances in its reappearing in my life are almost unbelievable (help from my ex-wife, a box placed on top of it in an attic saved it from destructive tar, kids found it and thought it was a toy but rescued in the nick of time, etc). Its hard to explain the memories and feelings I had when I was able to take a look at it again. It brought back such a rush of wonderful childhood memories. I remmeber working on it when I was in the first and second grade.

Do kids even collect stamps anymore? I don’t think its as popular as it once was, but I’m not sure of that. It doesn’t really matter. Just having the opportunity to thumb through the albums, the loose stamps, and the old catalogs from the 1950’s has been like seeing a very good friend after many, many years.

A big Thank You to all the people that made this reunion possible.

About Hurricane River Publishing

I write mystery novels. The Butterfly Conspiracy and The Peacock Prophecy, feature Stepehn Moorehouse, his Uncle Phillip Kahle, and Stephen's romantic interest, Jeanette St. Jacques. The Maze At Four Chimneys features John Barrington and his family. The Black Orchid Mystery features a detective named Archie Archibald. This book takes place in Vero Beach, Florida but has ties to John Barrington from The Maze book. My latest book, Menagerie of Broken Dreams, brings back Stephen Moorhouse and his uncle Philip, as they travel to central Florida to make a movie. Things don't go as planned when they meet Doctor Merryweather and his run down roadside attraction the Menagerie.
