Just in time for summer now available for pre-order are the Soda Fountain Favorites US Stamps; these Forever stamps planned Issue Day is June 30, 2016.
Soda Fountain Favorites
U.S. Forever® Stamp
“In 2016, the U.S. Postal Service celebrates soda fountain favorites the cold, sweet treats beloved by people of all ages. The act of savoring cool, fizzy confections is a national pastime that dates back generations.
Each of the 20 self-adhesive Soda Fountain Favorites stamps showcases one of these five illustrations: a doublescoop ice cream cone, an egg cream, a banana split, a root beer float, and a hot fudge sundae. The stamp booklet includes four of each design….”
“Even if you have nothing in your wallet, nothing can keep you from having a great summer. You can listen to crickets sing you to sleep, trace the Big Dipper, breathe in the stars, run through a sprinkler, host a cartwheel contest in the front yard.” – Regina Brett
First Day of Summer 2016
How can it already be summer? The weather today has already been cooler than normal and it has been just perfect. It finds me thinking of the first day of Spring instead of the first day of Summer. Over at the Old Farmer’s Almanac they describe it as – “In 2016, the solstice falls on June 20 at 6:34 P.M. EDT.” “Summer” solstice in the Northern Hemisphere because of the timing of when the Sun reaches its northernmost point of the equator.
Here’s to the summer ahead for us – including making time for writing letters! These Soda Fountain Favorites stamps will be perfect to use with some of my summer themed stationery.
