The joke is a little note inside suggesting that next year’s may be on time!  That’ll be the day! LOL

One positive effect of this issue being so late is it's almost Christmas - so you could ask your nearest and dearest to gift you a nice stout box for all your Cindy goodies!  
My Etsy shop - FarFetchedPhilately - is now open again :-)

What a compilation of items and ideas!

It is going to take me till the weekend to sort and read through everything and log what Was in that box. There is so much going on, at least from first glance.

I think members need to scan and post (or at least describe) what they receieved apart from the stamp sheets. How many collector's cards and postcards are there? Did we all get the same Quantum stamps? Just how many variants are there?

Nice to see a mention of the Laernu triangles; will read soon, and to see a familiar image on one of the cards. Anybody else recognise it?

Well, quite! I received my box yesterday and have opened it today and what an array of splendid items did spill forth from it. To such an extent that Colin felt that an index page of contents was a requirement this year. How organised! And much appreciated!

Time (at least as represented by the calendar) is an illusion to the man, but his (and Alan's) mastery of the two dimensions of space confined within his far-fetched philatelic terra firma is unreal. From my perspective, hours of fun to come and much table space required for laying everything out.

On the Laernu Trouven collectable cards, the stickers on the little brown envelopes note eight cards in one of the two sets and maybe imply eight also in the other. I have logged the numbers of the cards which I have, which I am missing, and which I have spares of. Here are the two lists behind spoiler tags in case you want to avoid any details until you have seen and checked over your own set.

Spoiler Spoiler

Bash & Crackwell: Have 2 3 4 7 8; Need 1 5 6; Swaps 3
Spoiler Spoiler

Turtle Conservation Society: Have 1 3 5 7; Need 2 4 6 8; Swaps 1 5

On the Quantum stamps, I got one in single form and three different (four stamps, one of which twice but a colour variant as far as I can tell) attached and tied by cancellation to the address label of the A4 envelope within my sturdy white box. Again, behind a spoiler tag.

Spoiler Spoiler

I had a mint single of the 60 Days Quantum Turkey and it, the 30 Days Quantum Rooster and the 90 Days Quantum Lobster (x2) on the A4 envelope.

Interested by your mention of "a familiar image". I wondered whether it is
Spoiler Spoiler

William Lole of mythical Gardens fame
on one of the postcards I received entitled
Spoiler Spoiler

'How to make your own turtle soup'.
But it will take a dig through my archives to check. What have you spotted?

The variant on the sheet of Turtle Stamps is easy to spot
Spoiler Spoiler

an extra fish at the top of the image
Particularly if you look at the commemorative covers !
and I've also spotted a second variant
Spoiler Spoiler

the turtle is eating a fish

The variant on the sheet of Tortoise shell Stamps is a little trickier
Spoiler Spoiler

on the LHS of the 1 FILIS reads downwards not upwards
and I've spotted a second variant 
Spoiler Spoiler

two dots are missing at the bottom of the stamp

BUT Has anyone had any luck spotting the third variants ?

The Quantum stamps seem to be
30 Days Cockerel green
60 Days Turkey blue
90 Days Lobster red
I got the same as Joolz
The blue and green are quite similar blu my loose stamp held against the cancelled ones showed the differences

With the Collector's cards I received

Bash and Crackewell #s 1,2,3,5 and 7. spares of 3 and 5

Laernu turtles #s 1,5 and 7. with spare of 7

The familar image will only be familiar to those who subscribed to the Welsh Oddities series, and is on the B&C #5 card. I suspect some form of Whoniverse time rift playing its part.
