  • Sell yor age!

    Hello all

    Calling on, in alphabetical order, Albertward, Alloway, Gabriel1, Hans100, Rusty500, Savo, Seahorsefanatic, Zetw and ALL other philatelists.

    I promise to offer an electronic gift voucher to the value of R100-00 to one Lucky Draw winner.

    Please post your age!!! I would really love to work out the average age of the Stamp Lovers on BidorBuy. OK Angela, Lana and Sheann, you are excused. You may join in by simply entering “Twenty Nine”.

    I simply hope to prove that stamp collecting is alive and well in South Africa and that the hobby has a brilliant future.

    Please do not let me down.

    Right Seahorsefanatic, you can start. By now we all know that you are exactly one day older than I am. I have to respect my seniors.

    Regards

    Jacques

        Hi Jacques, I am the old toppie of the bunch 67 next week, but I have a sexy (younger) Wife and a new Grand Child to keep me young(er)!!!!!
        I suppose most of the Philatelists and Stamp Dealers I knew in the 70s and 80 have gone to the big stamp album in the sky.
        And your age Jacques...you might win the prize!
        Have a great weekend. :D
        My age is but an irrelevant number !

          SELL YOUR AGE

          Hi Donderstorm

          Yes I am 1 day older ( and deeper in debt ) - 47 years old.

          At some of the fairs I feel like the yougster- It is alarming how the average age at the fairs, auctions etc is getting older and older.

          Lets hope this trend is reversed.

              Hello all!

              Thanks for the responses. I am 47. So 5 replies (up to now). A combined age of 265 years or an average of 53!

              So it seems as if the Bald Eagle is THE Spring Chicken after all.

              Please Alloway (regarding the sexy younger wife), do not give the male collectors any ideas!

              And Seahorsefanatic, just hang around me all the time at the fairs and auctions. You will feel your age.

              Hoping for more replies.

              Regards

                My age

                What can I say, mentally I still feel 21, sometimes thought, I feel like i am 2000 years old.

                My birth certificate says that I am 38 so i guess i will have to go with that. I do feel as though I should be starting to dye the greying beard, thank *** for the long hair, that hides most of the grey ontop.

                Anyway..
                Happy bidding and may the Lord's of philately smile down on you as you find that perfect stamp you have been searching for.

                  Hello All

                  So Savo comes along and messes it all up. Rusty is not the Spring Chicken anymore!

                  6 Replies – Total Age 303 years! Average now ONLY fifty and a half.

                  Where are you Gabriel1? Embarrassed to SHOUT your age?

                  Regards

                    Thanks to everyone who responded.

                    I will keep this open till coming Saturday morning and then have a physical draw in the presence of at least three “stamp members” of BidorBuy.

                        Hello Leon

                        Thanks for joining us!

                        It is really fantastic to see that kids still collect stamps.

                        Total age now after 7 replies = 336 years. An average of 48 years.

                        Regards

                            Hello David

                            Yes, you are now the undisputed Grand Master.

                            And I am sitting one year below the average!

                            Regards

                              Hi Jacques and fellow philatelists (what's feminine for fellow?)

                              47 Seems to be the hot number here, Jacques, I worked out your age when you said you went to the Army age 24, 6 months before I did, also 24.

                              Dave K, when it comes to bidding you are still fighting fit.

                              When you get to our age it is all down-hill, I can't believe it is me when I look in the mirror, Jacques, you are becoming forgetfull, times and car doors etc.

                              Regards
