Sell yor age!

Recommended Posts

Hello David

 

I wonder what the average age was 20 years ago

 

I have pondered over this for some time, using the wisdom that I have gained during the last few years. I can now categorically state that twenty years ago I was 20 years younger.

 

Regards

Hello Styphoiz

 

Thanks for your honesty (not being into stamps).

 

I would have disqualified you in any case – putting me very, very clearly on the wrong side of the average.

Hello Alloway!

 

Thanks for your wishes!

 

May I quote you:

 

may all your profits be large(er)!!!

 

Profits? What a wonderful idea!! Am I allowed to wish just for a small profit?

 

Regards

Hello David

 

Thanks, what a wonderful idea.

 

We simply have to give Korrie another chance.

 

I will start with: For how many years have you been collecting stamps / trading in stamps. I think that most collectors deal to some extent, even if it is just to get rid of duplicates and / or to buy needed items.

 

Regards

Hi all you old far*s.

 

I have decided to come out of my self-imposed exile to thank Jacques for organising the little competion. Although I still read the forum occasionally, I was shocked to discover that I had won a prize for the second time in my life. The first was a chocolate cake (that was baked by my mother) when I was in standard two. This was then given to my school mates who finished it in about three minutes.

 

In a similar charitable vein, I would like to donate my prize to the newly formed club that you guys have started. I am not a whisky drinker, but I would imagine that this would cover the price of half a bottle at least. Please don't finish it in three minutes!!!

 

Thanks again Jacques.

 

Regards

I think that this is a very interesting exercise you are doing - at 61 years old I guess that there are not many youngsters interested anymore. I know of Junior sections of philatelic societies. Please share your findings. I think most youngsters collect stamps at some stage in life - I oersonally like to give stamps as gifts to get them interested. Another factor is that it has become an expensive hoppy for a lot of people in these difficult times. Thanks again

Hello Kit W

 

Thanks for your reply.

 

Regarding the hobby being expensive.

 

Unfortunately, this is very true. A good quality stockbook, tweezers, magnifier and a SA Colour Catolgue will set the youngster back by at least R600-00! And then he / she is still to buy some stamps.

 

Regards

 

Jacques
