That's a bit strange that you're surprised. I ordered my LBEs yesterday. I suspected something was coming soon, as we're getting near the end of the month. I also spotted something flying over Lancre Castle on one of the stamps. Hmmm? :D

Did you, by Om? And without telling us on the Forum that you'd spotted a new LBE?!? :shock: you naughty CanadianGadfly, you!

To be honest, I wasn't expecting anything until later this week as I thought they might do an LBE issue to coincide with the UK launch of The Shepherd's Crown, but it looks like they might be waiting a bit longer to do one for The Shepherd's Crown - maybe because there's different and later release dates for other countries

And it's about time the good ladies in question made an appearance :D I wonder which one it is . . .

Teehee... Hopefully it wasn't TOO sneaky... you did get your mailouts didn't you...?!

This issue was instigated by a couple of collectors who saw the stamp artwork at a larger scale and preferred it greatly... so blame them... they shall remain nameless, however I can confirm that they rhyme with Cott and Scarole.

Yes, It's a lovely stamp to join the bee series!...

I noticed that Bernard had been at the LBE's again :D
Out of six LBE's I had five "Personalized" with Wonderful cartoons and encouraging messages like "This could be it - Or not", "Our Own Igor", or "You Git!"
Always a joy :D

I got a Bernard Bee as well :D

Although, sadly no Bernard doodles or any sports, Triangles or Dead Letters (them's the breaks :roll: ) but I did get an 'Igor 2 Igor' and 'UU Handle With Care' stickers so I now have a full set :D If anyone has a spare Jolly Sailor sticker, I could give it a loving home . . . :wink:
