  1. Hi Dana,

    the right stamp are also charitystamp. And its about our "sandmännchen". Its a Children's programme in the evening programme. My daughters watch it every evening at TV. The last year it has celebrated his 50th birthday. My dad and my mum wath the sandmann too, when they were still children.

    The Song:

    Sandmann, lieber Sandmann
    es ist noch nicht noch nicht so weit!
    Wir senden erst den Abendgruß,
    eh' jedes Kind in Bettchen muß,
    du hast gewiß noch Zeit.

    Sandmann, lieber Sandmann
    hab nur nicht solche Eil!
    Dem Abendgruß vom Fernsehfunk
    lauscht jeden Abend alt und jung,
    sei unser Gast derweil.

    "Kinder, liebe Kinder,
    das hat mir Spaß gemacht.
    Nun schnell ins Bett und schlaft recht schön,
    dann darf auch ich zur Ruhe gehn.
    Ich wünsch euch gute Nacht!"

    Trallala trallala

    Best wishes
