In Which The Old Man Fails To Buy A Stamp

So it be that we live quite close to the proud town of Penzance what do have a Gold Olympian quite early on. Putting aside groans about Olympic Hoo-Ha, The Old Man looks forward to his special issue stamp with picture of  Helen Glover. He do ask for several days running at the Post Office he do use (4 miles from Penzance) who do wait expectantly then ring up Royal Mail and so on. But no stamps arrive. Eventually Royal Mail tells our sub-Post Office that they ain't going to be sent any Helen Glover stamps.

The Old Man stomps off in high dudgeon.
If they can't supply our Post Office when all around are receiving theirs... so be it. No stamps bought then.
