    Well, today is the first day of 2023.

   Cheryl, and I have been sick so New Year's Eve, and New Year's Dasy was kind of a wash out for us. 

   I just hope the rest of the year gets better.

 So, another Christmas has passed. 

   I sure miss my dad. We can only Pray that life can get just a little easier in 2023.

   With 5 more days to a Brand New Year, I Pray it helps more of us get a better lease on Life so to speak. We have all lots something we cherish these past few years. 

   It has been a struggle to get up every day, Praying that it gets better financially for us. Opening the store was a big step in 2019, it did okay the first year. Then this COVID thing hit, and I just about lost my shirt. I owe so much to my family, especially to my wife Cheryl Harrington. 

   It has been hard on everyone. We had a few shows booked that first year, and when they were cancelled it just about broke me. How can life get better when the Government just seems to screw us over. 

   I can only pray that it will do a 100% turn around so I can help a little more with the bills at home, and not just cover the expense of being at the market. 

   Here is a link to my facebook page for the store called Hoarder's Corner Toys & Collectibles

 Hello Everyone,

   So much has happened the past year. It has been a very hard almost 3 years since my Dad Passed away. Not sure how we have survived all the BS via the way the World is going. I think we are all just trying to get through all of this, and pray that 2023 might get better.

   I hope my store in Chatham at the Market can manage to stay open for 2023.

Here's a link to the store on facebook,  please click onto the link and Please Like the Page, maybe even drop out to see me Hoarder's Corner | Chatham ON | Facebook .

   Really got into the Die cast cars the past few years, I think we are over 78,000 pieces now. Hot Wheels, Matchbox, Johnny Lighting, Green Light, M2's, all brands basically. I love the older brands that are no longer around, like the Kenner Fast 111's, Kidco, Tomica, Yatmings. 

   Well, got to fly.

   Just wanted to drop in and say Hello to everyone.

It has been a very stressful year to say the least.  I have been so busy doing so much, but it seems like every time I take 1 step ahead, I fall back 3.

The world as we once knew it has changed, and not for the better. 

I can only pray that things get somewhat better over the next few years.

The U.S.A. Border is still closed for Canadians to go over to Michigan (where we live), but Canada has opened its borders for the Americans to come over here. What the HELL is wrong with that picture!!!!

   This year Cheryl and I were able to escape for the first weekend in July, we headed up to Grand Bend to the Beach for one night then up to InverHuron Provincial Park. We really enjoy it up there. 

  I will add more soon,

DAD 2020


I am so lost right now. As I sit here, I just don't undersatnd, WHY !!! I prayed every day to God to make you better, I really wanted us to have more time together, not being greedy, but I had so much to say, so much to do with you. I know that when we talked when I gave you the snow plow truck you were very happy, I could hear it in your voice. I was over when you broke down on the phone. Dad, I LOVE YOU WITH ALL MY HEART !! I miss you so much already. Please Dad, Give me the strength to get through this. Please watch over Mom, so people do not take advantage of her when I can't be there by her side. Dad, I am so sorry I wasn't there on Monday when you left us.
Please forgive me. I am so happy I made it there on Saturday to hear you say my name 1 last time. We had no idea how bad this was going to be. Mom is being very strong Dad, but she needs your support from above.
