Just kidding, Harry!

It is nice, though to see some more Canadian members. Still wish I wasn't the only one from good old PEI! Its lonely down here :)

Wow!
We were the only Americans that gave Cliff a warm welcome! Canadians must be partial to him, based on his partiality to NE! ;D ;)

5 Americans & 5 Canadians in this thread at this point. I'm not partial to any phone, I like them all.

Whoops, didn't even see you, Paul F, Bones, etc. I guess I subconsciously see you guys as Canadians! :o

Kind of like so many people thinking Bill Shatner (Capt. Kirk) is American when in fact, he is Canadian :) What the heck, we are all collectors - that is the most important thing!

Some people think Canadians are so much different than Americans, but I see you guys as pretty much the same (other than legal identity stuff). Heck, I'm geologically more like Dave than I am like Harry!

My biggest regret is that there aren't any serious collectors on PEI. There are some who have a magneto phone on their wall for decoration, and a few ex-Island Tel employees with a few phones, but I haven't yet met anyone who seriously collects.

How I wish there were. It would be so much easier to find anyone to help in the Museum!

It is lonely on the East Coast :-)

There are no borders when using the internet, we all have a common interest and that alone makes us special. We are only a telephone call away.  :)

A little update. There is finally another collector on the Island, by the name of Robert Guth. Robert spent his working life with BNR and Nortel and moved down to the Western end of the Island to live the good life after the break-up of Nortel. He is a frequent visitor to the museum now, and it trying to develop a serious collection of his own.

Robert is a member of my Museum FB page, and I am working on him to get him to join here.

No so lonely anymore :-)

Aw, that would be great to get him here! At least you have a partner in crime now with collecting! :)
