Well folks, it REALLY don't take much to excite the children.

Here's what happens when you and the husband pay off the mortgage a few years earlier than expected:

That's right people... you get to knock an item of your Philatelic Bucket list, in this case, by purchasing a beautiful 1840 GB #1 Penny Black, complete with certificate of authenticity, by spending the following mortgage payment that would have come out on it.


By the way, in order to remember the bottom plate letters (and I didn't pick 'em or anything) and since I'm a French Canadian, EH stands for "Eliminer l'Hypotheque"! ("Get rid of the mortgage!"

Now for the next item on my list... a Treskilling Yellow... LOL! wink

Actually no, my next item will be a Canada #1 Red Beaver stamp.
