Made in America

I went into the post office yesterday and purchased some beautiful new commemorative stamps.

    Printed Stamps:

    Not to sound like a cynic or anything like that, but were they printed on US soil?

    Or was the bid won by some "American" Corporation DBA in the Cayman Islands and had them printed in Indonesia or some other exotic foreign place like that?



    Just curious.
  • Doesn't say

    I bough some Jimmy Hendrix stamps as well.

    Not that it's funny haha....

    More like funny sad, but your comment reminds me of all those tiny American flags they hand out at parades that are made in China.  Cool stamps.  My father has a picture of himself similar to those.  He worked in coal fired power plants for 32 years and has a picture of him and 2 others on top of a huge piece of equipment with an impact gun (big hanging from a chain fall) all are a bit dirty and grungy, but they got it done.  I keep asking for a copy of it from him because it's one of my favorite pictures.  There were a lot of tough men and women that built this great country and it's always good to see some appreciation shown for their efforts.

    Wow

    I love photos of the past. My favorite of that collection is the guy working on a bridge? Skyscraper? He's on a scaffold made of wood, cantilevered out and god knows how many stories up. He probably ate his lunch sitting in the same spot and admiring the view while discussing the baseball game that was on the radio the evening before. Men of that era had balls of steel and wondrous imaginations. I still love listening to the stories of the WW II vets at the VA hospital.



    God Bless,
