Bonus Post - Eclipse stamp

You can pre-order this stamp which will be issued on June 20th. I am within driving distance - a couple hours - of the path of totality. I traveled a lot farther than that back in 1979 to witness the path of totality and it was pretty cool.

These stamps have another interesting feature:

The Total Eclipse of the Sun stamp is the first U.S. stamp to use thermochromic ink, which reacts to the heat of your touch. Placing your finger over the black disc on the stamp causes the ink to change from black to clear to reveal an underlying image of the moon. The image reverts back to the black disc once it cools.

Like a mood ring, I guess.

Regular post for today is right below.
