Monthly RR - CANADIAN EDITION

Cards received today:

From @moneill - I agree. She is a badass but her choice for a political party and leader is questionable.

From @tinkerstorm - Happy Fall to you as well! All leaves are off the trees here. Love key lime pies, especially with a huge mountain of meringue on top.

Thank you both!!

One more in the bottom of the pile.

From @simplyrubies - Oh wow, never heard that fact before. Hope they eventually name a new street after him. I was signed up for a run last September but broke my ankle 3 days before from falling backwards on a treadmill. Will have to make sure I can go next year. Thank you for the card!!

Hi @tinkerstorm, thank you for the funny cartoon card! I don’t think there is a Canadianism that means something is different but looks exactly the same. But I know a lot of slang is regional, so maybe it just doesn’t exist in my part of BC (but it does elsewhere in the country?)

Bird card from the Animal Box series - from @simplyrubies. Thank you! Good luck with your cardigan :slight_smile:

We just come back from a trip to Europe, so we didn’t yet have a chance to enjoy Ontario’s colorful Fall.

I saw this painting in Paris during our first trip to France.

Apologies for delayed reporting of received cards - am recovering from surgery and behind on everything. Half my Oct cards have been mailed and will try to get the rest out shortly.

Thanks @helloleah27 for the WPD card and fun stickers. My kids are looking forward to Halloween and are making elaborate costume plans.

Thanks @MailingLlama for the Van Gogh card - great stamp too! I did an arts degree in my undergrad and managed to avoid chemistry lol

Thank you @LaurenceB for the polar bear card from the aquarium. I took my girls to that aquarium when they were young - we had a great time. Too bad your toddler didn’t enjoy apple picking. I’d planned to take my girls this weekend but am unfortunately laid up.

Thank you @tinkerstorm for your card. Sorry to hear you and your partner were ill - hope you have fully recovered and are having a great month of festivities.

And finally thank you @evank for the always fun envelope with cards, stickers and tea! And love the greeting in Afrikaans! I used to be able to say I could speak 4 languages, but a couple of those are pretty rusty these days.

I would like to participate in November.

I created a meetup in Montreal after the Nuphilex stamp show Nov 9, which would be perfect timing to write cards, especially if I end up sitting in the Tipsy Cow Bar by myself. :sunglasses:

I’m new to this RR, so I just sent my address to @stinkypaw.

Looking forward to sending cards across the country. I love receiving Canada stamps on cards!

Thanks to @garvey for the awesome and mystical glow-in-the-dark card. What a nice magical scene! I hope you enjoyed your time overseas.

A beautiful Thanksgiving card from @faithjohnson. Thank you, Faith, and yes, I am making time to rest and take care of myself amidst all the busyness. Thanks for the reminder.

A very nicely packaged postcard letter from @LaurenceB. Thank you, friend. A reply letter will be coming soon, and best of luck in getting the Halloween decorations up.

A card featuring a summery view of Outaouais from @JasonDavid. Thank you Jason, and I will keep in mind your tips for my upcoming trip in the wintertime. I hope you are taking in the fall colours as they are breathtaking.

Drew Habour, Quadra Island looks lovely @moneill. Thank you for the card, and best of luck with the increased workload at this time of year! I hope you get many jabs in arms ahead of the flu season.

Thanks @LaurenceB for this nice card about female “computers” I think I’d be good at it too, my work now is all about repetitive tasks & attention to detail

Thanks @AnitaGrace for this glorious card! I love how it shows the Queen at different ages. And really a miracle that it made it to me because I received it completely stampless! Obviously you would have put a stamp on so it must have fallen off somewhere along the journey and Canada Post delivered it anyway. Yay Canada Post!
