Heebee Post #513 - William L. Philyaw - Shawnee, Kansas - USA

Hello William and welcome back to the Affair my old friend. Looks like the cards may be stacked against you after a lunch such as the one shown above. Evidently, she is wearing it well though. And that looks like the old 'Bread in a Can' - A round and solid dark brown affair with raisins - top left. I must confess to loving that stuff - although haven't seen it in many years.
Check that majestic Romanian Zephyr postage stamp - wow - especially on the vast stark white expanse of the envelope. Here, William displays some more lovely vintage US postage. The stamp on the far left, I remember quite well. In 1962 the US Post Office honored the Mercury-Atlas 6 flight with this marvelous commemorative. It went on sale the same day the first US astronaut was put into orbit from Cape Canaveral! Thank you very much William - It is always a fine day for the Affair when you are here! Addressee and Marconi News. By the way, I sent you something today - prepare yourself!
