The other 3 stamps showing different animals were issued in a 4v set in the year 1993. Very nice stamps aren't they?

And talking about lakes... that reminds me of a song... Good old days when people used to listen to Nirvana... don't you agree? :-)

On the back of the postcard (bellow) you can see a stamp and the cancellation of the french Fête du Timbre 2008. This event was created in 1938 and this year it has the goal to promote philately and the exchange of letters between everyone! Shouldn't this be the goal of all Postal Administrations?! I wonder...
Do you like cartoons? Aren't these little figures... drawn with a pencil... at least before PC animated cartoons... always present in the happiest corner of our minds? Hope they are in yours as they are in mine!
Have fun and watch some animated movies or read some comics! eheh!
That's all Folks!

Above you can see the front of the cover that was sent to me from Vietnam AKA The 'Nam!
The 2 flowers shown are ORCHIDS issued in 2001 in a 6v set. The stamp with the globe was also issued in 2001 depicting Environment.
The WWF stamps were issued in a 4v set (like all WWF stamps) in 2005 about the Owston's Banded Civet... for more information click here.
The last stamps... with a peacock-like bird are from 2006 and belong to a 4v set.
On the back of the cover (picture above) you can see another stamp issued in 2006 for the Year of the Pig and another one (left one) about the Year of the Monkey - 2003.

I was challenged to make a list of my 12 favourite words... What a difficult task... Well, you know the song... Words don't come easy! (You can recall the song from the clip above!)
I'm sorry to all my readers for publishing something not stamps related but the person who asked me this is "no ordinary girl".
I'm publishing all the words in English since otherwise the majority of my readers' community wouldn't understand it.
1. Family - since you can always count with their unconditional support.
2. Love - something one would die for
3. Friends - who can spice up your life if not your friends?
4. Resourceful - yes, I've already told you that I liked this word, haven't I?
5. Serendipity - isn't life full of it? And also a great film!
6. Pure - because it's the meaning of your name.
7. Work - you can have a job and don't work at all - Where is the fairness in that?
8. Grand - because life should always be grand!
10. Floccinaucinihilipilification - The most difficult word to pronounce... that I know of!
11. Stamps - yes, I'm a collector!
12. Blank - because I need you to fill in the blanks in my life.
Since my readers are probably almost all stamp collectors I can't continue the chain. But I want to thank you... sure had a good time making the list!

The stamps on the envelope were issued last year 2007 in a set of 4v, depicting Tourism.

Above you can see one FDC with a stamp from that set. It has the NY cancellation and was issued on Oct of last year 2007.
Interesting FDC... don't you agree? If you have the others please let me know and we could trade or I could buy them from you.
