F is for Father Flanagan, Fossil Fuels and more

We're up to the letter F in the latest Sunday Stamps journey through the alphabet.

See how many Fs you can find on this postcard:

Father Flanagan (1886-1948) stamp issued in 1986. The link takes you to his wikipedia page.

Feathers and flowers on the Eastern Bluebird issued in 1991.

Fossil Fuels on the 1982 stamp issued to celebrate the Knoxville World's Fair, and designed by one of my favorite artists, Charley Harper.

I'm not sure about finding F things on the preprinted postcard stamp issued in 1984 for the Los Angeles Olympic Games. Can it be termed a Fleet of yachts? Can the Foam on the wakes count? Let me know if you have other ideas on this or any other stamps.

E is for Egg and Eggshell

In the last A to Z, E was for elephants on a stamp from Spain.

This time the E is for Egg and Eggshell on a stamp from Spain. They were both winners of a stamp design contest and formed part of the same issue.

Thanks, Eva, for this fun sending - I'll save the other stamp for another letter :)
