The local Post Office didn't have those. Can you scan them, and post them here as a jpg?

stand by. i'll try to score some this week sometime or find images on usps.com

and here is something cool. there is in philately a sub-section of the hobby called 'topical'. this is collecting stamps by subject (or 'topic'). stamps featuring things like boy scouts, trains, planes,etc. from all over the world. a very inexpensive way to add another dimension to whatever other hobbies you might have. i'm going to do some looking tonight. will pass on any websites i find.

here ya be, young man.

a thought (and yes, it hurt baaaaad):

you are allowed to create your own postage stamps with photos of you/bike/or both together!
about everyone in the world except me knows how to do this. i would guess it somehow involves paint shop, the post office, a color printer and maybe a program of some sort.

i know noooooooooTHINK!

you can also google images for bicycling postage stamps. lotsa cool pics there!
