Not much will happen on Sunday, January 27th ! Woo hoo ! USA postcard rates stay at 35 cents domestically for 6.0x4.25 inch. Oversize cards will go up to 55 cents, so stock up on permanent Forever stamps now. International postcards stay at $1.15 for up to 1 ounce.

Hey Bruce! I'm a big fan of fountain pens too. Which ones are your favorites? I'm still a beginner. I'm not good at switching out the inks. I just treated myself to a Lamy Safari pen on black Friday. That's about my fanciest pen.

Space is cool! What did you think about the latest Mars landing?

Have a great week, Mary
