Yes , September

It's September indeed. Time to get back on the blog. Today I have cards from Thailand, France, Germany and Luxembourg. Maybe even a few others if things move along well.

On to the first card. Here we see Wat Arun in Bangkok, Thailand. Wat Arun , known locally as Wat Chaeng, is one of the most stunning temples in the city. Even though it's known as the Temple of Dawn, it's just as stunning at sunset. So you won't go wrong , whenever you visit.

As always Jobbo used another fine selection of stamps. On the left is a stamp from a set of 6 issued in 1987 celebrating King Bhumibol's 60th Birthday Anniversary. The middle stamp, issued in 1990 shows a Royal Palace. The stamp on the right is from 1994 and shows the Mekong River Bridge.

Here's another one from Jobbo, sent from Thailand. It's the Royal Family this time.

Speaking of the Royal Family, the back of this card is festooned with stamps featuring the Royals.

Card # 3 is from France. It's a great picture of Pierres Noires
(Black Rocks ) Lighthouse in Brittany, France. It was built between 1867 and 1871 and has been automated since 1992. I guess lighthouse keepers these days are as scarce as hen's teeth.

Dominique used a stamp from 2015 commemorating 70 Years of Social Security.

This second card from Dominique is from Luxembourg. Shown is Henri the current Grand Duke of Luxembourg. He has reigned since Oct 7, 2000.

Dominique used a 2015 SEPAC stamp. SEPAC is the Small European Postal Administration Cooperation.

Well, that's all for this time. Thanks for cards going out to Jobbo, and Dominique.  I'll be back again soon, drop by for another installment of GemsWorldPostcards. Cheers.
