Popped into the shop today on the way back from a pre-Easter visit to my wife's parents who live just a few miles down the road from Wincanton. Had a good old natter with Bernard. Who charmed my wife with tales of bygone days when spies were spies and potters became coppers, the old rogue! And sweetened up my son with a Hogswatch 2008 badge and a box of Alchemists' Yellow Lucifers! Reckon he's working on the principle of getting 'em exposed to the product lines as early as possible. A good tactic since my son is already exhibiting clear signs of shopaholism (he'd just been wanting to buy half the things on display in the local butcher's).

Got a couple of Spring Posy LBEs picked out for me by the charming assistant behind the counter (not Hilary on this occasion as she is off for a few days although she would of course have been equally charming!) who told me that I wasn't allowed to blame her if they weren't any good. Well, I'm here to tell her now that they were just fine and maybe I should have gotten her to pick out a few more.

Two LBEs and two sports (an A-M 2p sport and, yay!, a ToA sport with falling man between the top bird and bottom bird on the right). :D

Bernard's been having a bit of fun, by the looks of it :roll:
Is this printed as part of the stamp, or drawn on later? If it's in pen, it's a unique "special" and i am not jealous at all :mrgreen: :oops:

This looks like a remarque. These are popular among collectors of Migratory Waterfowl Hunting Permit, aka duck, stamps, in the US, where the artist is very much associated with the stamp. Remarques are placed on the selvedge attached to the stamp, or in the margin of the lithographed print of the artwork. Nice find :D

I don't know what a 'remarque' is but does it mean 'Bearnard is messing about again'? :-)

On checking through my stamps again from my Naming the Streets LBEs, I have also found a Sto Lat 2p sport and a Sto Lat 5p with scribble on the selvedge but it is unintelligble on the bit that I have.

In simple terms, it was scribbled by Bernard.
