Wow, wow, wow! I was close to hyperventilating when seeing that. Would that be worth all the co2 (and far too much money) to fly over there for getting some of the stamps and maybe join some release party? Will there be some kind of party? Are there usually stamp release parties in the UK?

Boah, Blackadder! :hugs:

That was so popular, when I lived in England. All my favourite comedians in one series. Rowan Atkinson, Stephen Fry, Hugh Laurie, Rik Mayall, Adrian Edmondson.

I saw them all in plays, except Rowan Atkinson, through the years, got their autographs and still have the photo of Hugh Laurie and me in my living room. From the early 90s.

Those were the days! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

@reisegern lol, no we don’t have stamp release parties, but that is a good idea!

@Robin67 I love Blackadder as well, they still show them here. I met Tony Robinson once, called him Baldrick, he put out his hand said, “that will be £1 please” laughed, shook his head said, that Baldrick would forever be his legacy. I said, it was not a bad legacy to have.

All I will say is keep an eye on the lotteries… :wink: lol
