My names Jerry Fisher and I've been collecting for about 15 years.  I'm looking forward to sharing my passion of phones with fellow collectors.  I often get that glazed eye look when I talk telephones with friends but we can't all be perfect.  Below is one of my favorite phones.  Looking forward to learning more.

Welcome! We have a place near Big Rapids. There are a few members from Michigan on the forum. Also watch for the Michigan antique telephone show.

Welcome to the forum Jerry!

I think that most of our members either come from Michigan or Canada.

I agree, I can't talk to my friends about this hobby without them giving me weird looks!

I don't know about that, but Michigan certainly has the best collectors :D

Now wait a minute....  I have never even stepped foot into Michigan.  There are some of us out here in the wild, wild west.  :)

I'm not from Michigan, but my dad is, and I spent many a summer along the Lakeshore in Muskegon. It's also where I "inherited" my first phone - a Stromberg Carlson 1543 Black Deskset.

Welcome aboard!

Welcome, I'm new here myself. I'm one of the Canadian's I think they are talking about. I have been given a warm welcome here. I also get funny looks from people when I talk about my collection. When someone walks into my garage it's "WOW, Where did you get all the phones" or "I remember that one" The best line is "Do you get many phone calls"

I believe I answered that question before.

Whereabouts are you in Ontario?

That would be "Belleville" sir.


But that's ok because my memory is short as well, sir.   ;)

I did because the one I was using looked to much like DavePEI's.
