“Hey Merlin, babes, what are these, thingy…err stamps doing in the lab. ” Morgarna called out, “Are they important or are they for the bin?”
“No they are not for the bin Morgarna, don’t touch them” a startled Merlin called back. ” I thought I’d start a collection of them especially the rare ones”
Morgarna laughed and winked at her sister and replied. ” But they are almost obsolete babes”
Merlin strode into the Lab from the kitchen, “what better time to have a rare collection when they are a rarity? “
“These are not worth much babes ” Morgause mimicked her sister.
“No those are not but they will be, plus I thought we could pick up the rare ones on our travels” replied Merlin “we could make a killing really” Merlin smiled and poured himself a coffee.
“By “We” he means me and you Morga if you hang around long enough”
Morgause thought about this and said , ” Merls might just be on to something here … Some of these stamps are worth a fortune, especially first editions, those with mistakes and some that they made a few of. When were the first stamps made. “
Merlin picked up his phone and asked it, “Google when where the first adhesive stamps made” Google replied “In May 1840 the world’s first adhesive postage stamps were distributed. With an elegant engraving of the young Queen Victoria (whose 21st birthday was celebrated that month), the Penny Black was an instant success.”
Merlin then asked who had the idea. Google replied *”Sir Rowland Hill, KCB, FRS” “Well ladies we have a plan, we could make a fortune out of this! Who’s doing the first jump?”
Morgarna and Morgause lifted their Bacardi’s and coke and as one said “You! Babes you”
