Vermillion South Dakota, left good old Ashton back in 1981, didn't miss it at first but I sure do now. Was back in Ashton last summer and had the hardest time tearing myself away.

As you can all see - I'm living in London, Ontario, Canada now and for the last 41 years.  I left Manchester and sailed from Southampton on the Queen Elizabeth via New York to Ontario.   There I've lived in Hamilton, Exeter, Toronto and Ottawa (twice), as well as Moncton, New Brunswick and Goose Bay, Labrador over the years.  All this moving around was because my late husband's career was in the RCAF.   It's been interesting for sure and my only regret is that I've never yet been out West to Vancouver, etc., but there might still be time!!!   ;D
