I am a retired school bus driver, which I have done for 34 years. So I like school bus related things.
I live in South Western Ontario, about midway between Toronto and Windsor in the rural town of Ingersoll. Ingersoll is in Oxford County, a large farming county. It is known for the Big Cheese and has a museum dedicated to cheese. Although my mailing address is Ingersoll, I live in Southwest Oxford Township, within Oxford County.
In Canada, I have traveled to Nova Scotia and New Brunswick on the east coast and Vancouver Island on the west coast. I have made two pilgrimages to Israel. I am a Christian and have been an Inductive Bible Study student and leader for many years.
I knit, crochet, sew, collect stamps...and currently my time is taken up with preparing a stamp exhibit for a show. I love stamps, and I am working on a Christmas exhibit (which does not include Santa Claus) so, I do a lot of eBay-ing to find the stamps I need.
I am married (empty-nester), have 4 children, 9 grandchildren ranging in age from 3 yrs - 24 yrs. and 1 great-grandson. These children are the joy of my life.
I am also a photography buff and always looking for the unusual. I have been told that I have a 'good eye' and have some wonderful photographs of nature, insects, flowers, old buildings, barns and of course, my grandchildren. I like nature scenes of your country of residence but, it has been wonderful to received postcards with anything that reflects who you are and the country in which you live.
I would love to received religious Christmas stamps and/or special Christmas cancellations. I am also looking for stamps with Silent Night on them or Silent Night cancellations, the 'Good Samaritan' theme and the diabetes theme. I am collecting stamps for these areas, and hope to put them into a exhibit in the near future.
