Royal Mail Paul McCartney Prestige Stamp Book

With his 80th birthday this coming weekend, we are looking at the Royal Mail Paul McCartney Prestige Stamp Book.  And speaking of the calendar, next Sunday is Fathers Day, on June 19, 2022.

Just as we have the USPS in the United States, there is the Royal Mail in the UK.

And in case you didn’t see it yet, be sure to watch (so far 65.7M views) on Youtube with Paul McCartney Carpool Karaoke with James Corden. It is from four years ago, June 22, 2018.  The 23 minute video is fantastic!

Before closing, I find it fun to share from time to time the how of some of the blog titles. With today being blog post #2170, the inspiration for today’s blog is from listening to XM Radio today hearing Paul McCartney. It prompted me me to go look up his age discovering his birthday is this coming weekend with my search then finding the Royal Mail. 

Here’s to a great week ahead and Happy upcoming Birthday to Paul McCartney! See you back here next Sunday on Father’s Day 2022!
