Nice an' Easy Does it....

For all you Rat Pack fans, Sinatra swooners, and Big Band lovers, get ready! I just stumbled across the USPS site and found out that a Sinatra stamp is coming out in the spring of 2008.

Here's a quote:

"..Art director Richard Sheaff of Scottsdale, AZ, worked with stamp artist Kazuhiko Sano of Mill Valley, CA, to create the image based on a 1950s photograph of the entertainment icon. The stamp depicts Sinatra’s charismatic smile, trademark fedora and cobalt blue eyes that earned him the nickname “Ol’ Blue Eyes.” Sinatra’s autograph also appears on the stamp..."

So now all I have to do is check to see if they have stamps for Dino and Sammy D.

Here's one for the road:

Have a great weekend!
