    Alas, most post offices in the eastern time zone have been closed.

    Perhaps ordering stamps online will beat tomorrow's rate increase, but believe it or not, the post office charges postage to ship its postage stamps.

    Fred, the change isn't for a month. It is July 10th, not June 10th.

    That's not why I'm in pain! 😉

    Does anyone happen to know whether the post office still sells envelopes with printed stamps on them?

    Yeah, I know. It was a general purpose "sorry", though I am sorry for your own personal discomfort, as well.

    Good Lord, and I even thanked you for that post. This is getting bad. If I start drooling on myself, just dump me in the bay.
