    I really enjoyed your adventures and how fun to meet so many Dis members!

    If you ever pass through Duluth again, let me know and we can have a meet! I would not recommend this time of year, lol! Our weather has been awful over the last 2 weeks.

    I will be on the May trip so we maybe able to say Hi then:wave2:

    Thanks for the fun read!

    I will stay tuned for more of your adventures!

    Looks like ya do!

    Good girl.

    So I took a look and saw this:
    upload_2019-2-10_17-39-30.jpeg

    The bottom line says Canada.
    The top line...
    Might be Chateau?
    All that’s left is C h a t e...
    and a partial letter.
    And the “t” could be “l”

    Thanks, Caroline!
    Meeting fellow DISers,
    is often the best part
    (and sometimes the
    only part) of my travels. :)



    Okay! That's a deal. :goodvibes


    Probably not too different
    from ours, although
    with the lake effect,
    I'm guessing you had
    more snow.


    Oh, great!
    I'll be posting a brief
    schedule of where I'll be, when,
    very soon. :)



    You're very welcome!
    Glad you enjoyed it
    and are enjoying it
    so far! :)



    Coming up!
    Next update's photos
    are all loaded and I've
    started writing it already. :)

    Dang, Doc!
    That's probably it!
    More likely than Chateau
    at any rate.

    Did you see that @Tracy161 ?

    And look what I found after
    a quick Google search
    for Chalet glass...

    Different colours, but same shape.
    The blue one was valued at
    $40-$50.

    Thanks Doc!

    You are most welcome. Because one of my hobbies is numismatics, I've gotten pretty good at reading worn or unclear writing (happens a lot). Happy to help.

    I'm finally caught up! I guess that means you're getting ready to post another update?

    I'm not going to multi quote for now but will after the next update. I've really enjoyed reading about the great people you'be met, the things your done and the delicious food. You made me really tired when you totaled up your driving. I'm really sorry you had vertigo on the drive back. Good thing it passed fast. I've had "dizzy spells" since I was young. It really helps to keep your ears clear.

    I'm looking forward to more great stories.

    Interesting hobby,
    although I already knew...
    How did you get into that?

    As a matter of fact...
    I do have one in the works.
    Photos are all loaded
    and I've written the first
    little bit.


    Hoping in another day or two.

    Or three.

    Okay, that's a deal.
    I expect huge, massive
    amounts of multi-quotes.
    Pages and pages worth.



    ;)

    Thanks! :)
    It was great meeting
    so many wonderful
    people!


    Aw, you poor thing.
    Maybe go lie down for a bit.
    I'll drive over and tuck you in.
    It's only 1,500 miles or so.




    Ugh. Sorry to hear that.
    It was my first (and I hope only)
    time experiencing that.


    Thanks Vanessa! :goodvibes

    I'm on pins and needles waiting.

    How am I doing so far?

    I've enjoyed the few Dismeets I've had over the years.

    Any excuse to take a nap.

    I hope it's your last.

    :hug:

    I can't say I remember a specific time or event that was the beginning. My great aunt and uncle had given me a few, my grandma gave me a few, my dad gave me a few, I found some in change. I honestly don't recall which happened first. Pretty sure it was the chicken.

    I think a lot more happened about 20 years ago when I got out of the military and could actually AFFORD to actively look/find/purchase items of interest.

    I'll try to hurry up.

    Not bad!
    Could you multi-quote
    each individual line?



    :lmao:

    Me too! :)

    :laughing:

    Nighty-night!

    :scared: Me too!

    That's how it starts all right.
    I started with the CDN bird penny.


    upload_2019-2-12_10-24-39.jpeg

    I had about... 20-30?
    Long time ago.
    I stopped collecting when
    I found out they were
    worth... about a penny.


    :laughing:


    :lmao:

    ::yes::
    Money helps with getting stuff.

    A long time ago the US 1967 penny was worth a penny also. :lmao: The thing is keeping them in good condition long enough for them to be old enough and/or other good condition specimens to become rare and then they become valuable.

    I have some older Canadian coins that are worth more than face value. I have an 18xx? Cent and even though it's not in the best shape, it's still worth over $20.

    I absolutely love reading your trip reports. You have me lol-ing (l-ing-ol? Whatever) a lot. And I did see it in the last chapter! I'm not terrific at spotting things but have a couple times during this TR! Can't wait to read more of your travels.

    Really! Huh.
    I know I used to have
    a few of those.
    Maybe Kay has them.
    I gave what I had to her.
    Should ask.

    Why thank you!! :goodvibes

    And :welcome: to the TR! :)


    This made me stop and think...
    (A rare event , and seldom
    profitable.)

    Lol = laugh out loud
    Lol-ing = laugh out louding
    L-ing-ol = laughing out loud

    But “I was l-ing-ol.”
    looks wrong.

    My head hurts! Lol.
    Although that’s usually
    not a l-ing-ol matter.


    ::yes::
    Some are easy,
    some are hard,
    some are sneaky.

    ;)


    More coming soon! :)
