Beach Music and 2017 Seashells Postcard stamps

This weekend finds me loving Beach Music and 2017 Seashells Postcard stamps being issued today; nearby over in Myrtle Beach, SC the National Shag Dance Championship Preliminaries are underway.  They started on Friday and continue today, Saturday; January 27 and 28, 2017.  The finals are held March 9-11, 2017.

This morning while writing today’s blog post, and listening to The Embers, I have already placed my order for these new stamps online at USPS.com.

The 34¢ Postcard stamp is available in a block of 4, block of 10, sheet of 20, and a coil of 100. The default setting came up for the coil of 100, so just pay attention before you get to the shopping cart!

“Whimsical and lighthearted, the stamp art features stylized depictions of four seashells: the alphabet cone, the zebra nerite, the Pacific calico scallop, and the Queen conch, frequently called the pink conch. The horizontal swaths of white and blue in the background suggest waves washing the shells onto a beach.”

The word “POSTCARD” on the stamps indicates their usage value. Like a Forever® stamp, these stamps will always be valid for the rate printed on them.”

There is a fun article at WBTW News 13 on National Shag Dance Championship returns with “Shagging with the Stars” including a video on the weekend competition and showing how to dance the shag.

I’m closing with this LP Version of The Embers – Beach Music Medley – Enjoy all 16:01 minutes!  Join me tomorrow for my Sunday blog post.  Here’s to having a great Saturday ahead!

Anchors Aweigh,
