    Hey From Canada!

    Just a quick hello from Hamilton, Ontario.
    Going to WDW Sept. 4. Port Orleans - French Quarter.
    Can't wait! Hope the weather calms down.
    Anyways, I'm more of a lurker than a poster on boards,
    but maybe I'll try and participate more here!
    Check out my Disney Paper web site.

    That's about it for now!

    Hi Matt, and WELCOME to the forums!!

    I am actually a fan of your site, having visited many times before. I, too, am a collector of old WDW paper items (and am quite jealous of some of the things in your collection)

    Nice to have you here, and hope that you decide to join in and post!!

    Thanks Lou! I'd be jealous too if what was one the site was actually in my collection. I
    probably have only a tenth of what's there . The rest exists only as images
    on my hard drive from five years of browsing eBay. Disney paper items are few
    and far between here in Ontario, and with the US/Canadian exchange rates,
    eBay is usually out of reach for me as well. So I'll be happy with what I do
    have, and continue to work on the site and dream.

    Thanks again! Matt

    Hi Matt, great to see a fellow Canadian. This is a great site! Everyone is so friendly. I'm not too far from you in Milton - soon to be Cambridge as of the end of the month.
    Just took a quick look on your site. Pretty Cool!! I loved looking at the old issues of Eyes and Ears. I think I even have a couple of those and a Cast Member map packed away somewhere.

    Oh, and all the stuff I threw out as a kid... Ugh (Thank God kept all my Star Wars figures in their original packages back in '77)

    Thanks for all the notes of welcome!
    This seems like a very friendly site. You can be sure I'll
    stick around these boards!
    Also, I'm glad you've enjoyed my site. I'll have to update it
    more frequently now.
