Hey Bad!

Actually, I must admit that I never knew there had been comemorative stamps. I would dearly love to see a picture of those, (hint, hint.. :wink:). What year are those from?

BTW, do any of those core samples of yours have gold in them?.....lol. (Which reminds me, Jo, I have the core sample colour photo back from the MMA).

But seriously though John, and everyone, the personal momentos are the best! I would like to mention mine, as being a little tour book given me by Garnette for my wee son. The book got double blessed that evening, when I met up with Dan B. Without hesitation, he picked up the little book and wrote down a message. It said, "Never Give Up", addressed to my son. Evidently, this is his favourite motto or saying. So, this is most cherished, and I'll keep that for the little guy till he gets older. Thus the little motto in my signature at the bottom.

Joy,

I cherish my Oak Island memorabilia and book collection. The stamps...I'll take a photo of them and try to post them here at some point. I wished I lived closer. I wish I could own a summer home near Oak Island when I retire and live long enough to enjoy it.
Whewww...where does the time go!

Hi John,

There's that big old heart getting in the way again. Thanks, I'd love to see a picture of those stamps.

And regarding your wish of living close to Oak Island, remember if "you can dream it, you can do it". We also have a great health care plan up here for when you fall into the Geritol generation....lol. :P

Joy,

Yeah I will assess my personal situation come that time. I would rather live in NS in the summer them NH. And winter in NC. if possible. These New England winters are getting expensive to stay warm and I don't see it getting any cheaper either.

And I've extended an invitation to you as well.

So far Danny/Yvonne, Darcy/Patricia, Dave/Michelle,Garnette/David and Ken/Jan have graced our humble doorway. It was great to see everyone and visit. While Oak Island is a constant topic du jour other subjects are discussed. We have 2 spare bedrooms and a decent cooking staff and its just the best visiting with friends and reciprocating the hospitality thats been extended to us over the years. As I have eaten two outstanding seafood meals at your place, sure would be nice to give us a chance to extend you a similar opportunity. Your convenience.

Any pro Oak Island enthusiast that I know is welcome anytime. Given I have 12 acres of forest to hide things I welcome Oak Island skeptics to....lol.
:lol:

The Oak Island community is like a family, and like a family arguments occur. Tomorrows another day. Always give yourself that next day.
Whewww...where does the time go!

Here's a painting Joy asked me to add to this souvenir thread. It's a picture of the island by a mysterious 'E.E.K.'

Hello Richard,

It is that Caper again.......I can almost taste that blueberry wine from here......lol.

Anyways, I was over visiting my old buddy Kaye Chappell and she presented me with another Oak Island goody. It is a small watercolour done on the island. Garnette, perhaps you can describe better for us the location. I am guessing the West side near the MacInnis property?

If anybody knows who this artist is, please let me know. I am interested in dating the painting. The initials E.E.K can be seen at the bottom, but I am not sure. Kaye was thinking it was Elaine Kelloway perhaps.

Thanks all,

Joy
