First Day of Spring

First Day Cover from the 1947 International Philatelic Exhibition in NY

After a little tease of nice weather yesterday, the first day of spring brought more rain, sometimes heavy and sometimes mixed with a few snowflakes. In fact, it’s snowing again as I jot this post.

I’m still wading through my stamp collection, now cataloging the first day covers.  I stopped collecting them over ten years ago but I still have over 500 of them.  That’s part of the delight in the cataloging project, I guess: really finding out what I have.

I’m getting antsy, though.  My thumb has healed enough that I’m going to hit some golf balls this weekend if the forecast for sunny weather holds.  I chipped a few in the back yard yesterday and it felt OK.

The Atlantic has a wonderful selection of spring photos.
