My dear mother keeps telling me to clean my room. I should show her this, and she might let me leave my room a while longer... :lol:

By the way, Glen, what's that grand totem pole thing?

Ben that is something I bought back once from the Sepik River in New Guinea, carved from borer infested driftwood.

It is the ancient New Guinea God of Order and Neatness, so a tidiness freak like me just had to have it. :lol: :lol:

There was 6 inches of long forgotten rubble down near the base, so just for you, here it is, head to toe. :)

Glen

Now that is truly refreshing (and shows progress), since it shows the movement of the item, it was once near/on the formal dining room table and has recently made it across to near the oven (cooker) and now on the marble island between the two.

Kindest regards, Richard

Richard .. I know American 'beer' is only about 1% strength, so you must have had quite a few to decide that one. :lol:

My carving had been in that exact spot for at least 10 years, looking approvingly at my oasis of neatness and order, in the kitchen and family room. :mrgreen:

Indeed until an hour back when taking the photos above, I had not seen the base of it also for about 10 years!

Well I didn't even realise it was that small - thought it was life sized, not propped up on philatelic junk!

Glen

Upon close examination of the other photographs on the thread, I will concede that issue. It does seem that it was always on the kitchen island/bench. (Although some of the other photos show considerable movement of the fruit bowl)

Light night, being a Wednesday, was a gin night, so no problems with American beer there. Guinness is for the most part my beer of choice and then mostly on weekends.

Even Catweazle was confused about the size.

Kindest regards, Richard

Richard- seeing you noticed the fruit bowl, can you see the teeth marks in the banana?

I gave Glen an artificial banana once when they were $20 a kilo. One night a possum broke in and took a bite.

Only one so he apparently wasn't impressed.

Sorry I did not, except that there were times when bananas were absent from the bowl itself.

If a possum had broken into my house, I am afraid I would have considering moving, though come to think of it I did once see a raccoon climbing out of a nearby storm drain!

No the Possums just eat fruit - the Water Dragons and Kookaburra eat MEAT .. and that bit annoys me! They raid the BBQ.

I have now trained the Kookaburras to count stamps, so that helps a bit. :mrgreen:

So that is a Kookaburra. Always heard it during Cricket commentary when they discuss the "Kookaburra ball" :)

After seeing Glens house/stamp rooms, decided to arrange all the stamps albums I have and take a photograph, so here it is-
all that I have, in 9 measly albums and four small boxes :cry: :cry:

a close up of the albums-

trying to organize the stamps within the albums and need to buy more as these are almost full :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Girish,

I had a Kookaburra bat in my school days and then later changed to Slazenger. The Kookaburra was better. My all time hero David Boon used one. I envied 4 things about him, his moustache, his bat, his beer belly and his fitness.

Coming back to your collection, it is not messy at all. It looks well organized. Keep it up.

I would take your situation in a second. would be nice to see a shot of your mess?

Is that a LSAT, Law School Admission Test, textbook in pride of place, next to the spiral bound Unitrade and SG Part One catalogues?

Ah, but the rest of the mess isn't stamp related!

And the LSAT book is there so I can find it.

available.

a very, very good where everthing is. Oh I asking about
the cooking utensils!!!!

Amazing

I never knew! How can someone so messy be so business-like, reputable and highly thought of.

I have ordered a few items from Glen over the years. They always arrived quickly, and perfectly packed.

Friends have asked where to go to get a collection valued, I always say give this guy a ring.

And he goes on holidays many times every year.

I have stopped tidying my stamp room

Best wishes

Please keep that quiet --- EVERYONE will want my high Express Level "within the next month (maybe)" shipping standard, if you keep talking about it. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Here is a true story. A local guy (not even a "I want it yesterday or even earlier" American!) ordered a GB QV high value off me for $A825 early June. 2 weeks later I had not mailed it. Unknown to him, my Father had died interstate after being very ill, and I'd been down there for weeks for his passing and farewell etc.

Anyway, I got a tense "cancel the order .... NO-ONE makes me wait 2 weeks for stamps - it is totally unacceptable practice" email. Such petulance does not faze me one iota, and when I took a close look at the stamp it was far better than I had thought, so I re-listed it for $A875 and it sold within 2 days on my Rarity Page. There is a moral in there somewhere I suppose. :)

I loved this this thread when Glen was brave to show his messy, but I note clean, stamp empire spread over his house.

I am glad there has been a renewed interest and the last post showed someone else's stamp room and I have to say the curtains (drawn) are amazing. I doubt one can work long with the colours filtering through them. Must make shade estimation a nightmare. What about a side interest in "Who has the most interesting curtains in their stamp room?"

The chair there looks very comfortable. I had to buy a new ergonomically designed chair and this is the first essential of stamp collecting, never mind tweezers, lights, stockbooks, albums, etc. and of course a few thousand stamps.

Start with a chair as it avoids one of the many serious injuries that stamp people contract, the Stamper's Back, Its another thread " What chair do you have when stamping".

Very belated sympathy to Glen too over his Dad's passing. Mine was a sad loss but it sparked my resurgence in stamping when he left me his collection. I still see his very well ordered pages and sigh. Anyway my tribute has been to expand his lot into now an almost Glen'esque level nly I seem to buy not sell, even off Glen.

Perhaps immortality through definition is the deserved prize for Glen.

Glen units of disarray. Entropy being: the move towards chaos, what about the "Glentropy scale". A scale of 1 (order) to 10 (total chaos) would suffice. Any levels defined by Stampboarders?

Firstly the curtains. 8)

I have always wanted curtains that were "out" there" unusual, different and a conversation piece. When Val I went shopping it took three shops to find what I was looking for. Val did not say much, but I felt the vibes, she likes them now they are up.

8) No light refraction, well I don't notice anyway as there is a carport next to my "playroom" :wink:

The features on the curtains are the highlights of Sydney, done in a Ken Done (Australian Painter Google) style and as I just love Sydney, I never tire of them.

The first thing some friends said, were, I should replace the curtains as they "assume" they came with the house. We have only been here for five years... These could be a Ken Done print, not sure, love em anyway and that's what matters..

The chair: :D

A present from my daughters as they know I love a chair with good back support and this one is so comfortable. It is called "Bathurst Racer Chair" and is from Office Works. :)

I'm surprised at how comfortable and well built this chair is given its price. When I tried it in store, it was more comfortable than its more expensive peers.
Because I spend plenty of time at the desk for play , I'm thinking of buying a second one in case this one breaks and the product becomes obsolete. :cry: :cry:

Each of the arms fold up for a quick exit and it reclines back a little. They say it is a copy of one of the seats in the V8 racing cars used in the Bathurst 1000 race (Google) :D

Notice the two holes in the top, back of the chair, these are for seat belts,
but I have not fitted them yet :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

This is my space and I don't care what people think :twisted: :twisted:

The curtains then have a pedigree. At least you are a brave man and if you like em that is enough. I have rather boring red blinds that tend to remain shut. The effect in daylight through the blinds makes me orange so that when I Skype and use video people show genuine concern for my health..

Pondering on the chair. I realise now that it is a 'racing' car chair and the seat belt possibility is lovely.

Maybe a better idea is to ask people to take pictures of their view from the stamp room. I will post mine tomorrow and see what happens with others.

I am sure Glen has a superb view though, having a diverse number of stamp rooms, he has an advantage.

Not much of a view! I am sure many would swap their views for this. The lizard fight his weight I see. Thank you being first with 'view from the stamp room'. Dark here in Austria and raining, so tomorrow for my view.

Hi John

We've actually got a thread on stamp room views buried away.
(There are some beauties there too 8) )

Hi Margo again

Maybe another twist would be to ask people what they wear when stamping? Or is this already a thread too?

We tried that once, but someone from the Grumpy Old Men's Club posted this, and we decided to close the thread pretty fast!

Excellent start Sheriff. Now that is some stamper. A caption is needed!

Presently browsing in full overalls ready to garden. Day is grey but here are my views from the three windows in stamp room as promised. Just noticed on opening blinds that windows are in need of a good scrub, me too.

Last bit. Noted people at desk with stamps. Famous one of Roosevelt with great magnifying glass technique!!! I imagine he was saying " Oh my, I must clean that thumb" (no disrespect intended to USA people, my wife is from USA). Hey another thread " Stamp collectors wives (or husbands) . Too risque?
Image

Roosevelt pic from Web images, is he dealing with Italian stamps?

And who was this then?

Better technique but no box files.

Nice part of the world you reside in , John 8)
(But your room looks a bit under utilised- all of the desk space that could have piles of stuff on it LOL)

I take the point about space, next then the views of albums, files, loose papers, etc. and maybe a swing round to desk clutter. Anyone spot the tobacco tin effluent? Off to garden though looks like rain- planting three pear trees. So intimate this Stampboards.
