Philatelic Friday: SUP-ER Heroes Stamps

After taking a few weeks off from my Philatelic Friday series, it returns today with a dynamic installment featuring Super Heroes. Or perhaps I should say it in a loud booming and dramatic voice "SUP-ER HEROES". I thought that with all the nagging economic news, we all could use an heroic effort to boost spirits and public mood. There's nothing quite like the battle of good versus evil, when the super hero saves the day and returns order to the world. If only we had a super hero to fix things. At least we have them on stamps. (Although that doesn't seem to have helped the Post Office much). For those of you who are comic book geeks I hope you thoroughly enjoy this post.

Happy Philatelic Friday all!

Have you ever used 'Wag Hotels', I made a reservation for this month, I hear they are good, but never from someone I know. Just curious, or maybe you know of someone who has used their hotel? I don't trust my girls to just anyone!
