I speak a lot about the local show, PENPEX, but what is on my mind now is the APS StampShow on August 8-11. The show will be held in Milwaukee which happens to be where I grew up. So I look forward to a great show but also seeing family and friends.  If you are at the show, look me up and I can tell you where to get the best frozen custard.APS StampShow - Milw
