Hello from Nova Scotia

I suppose this should have been my first post and not third lol. I am a lobster fisherman, born and raised in 'New Scotland' Canada and a dyed-in-the-wool monarchist are are most people in this part of Canada. I look forward to learning about my monarchy from this most knowledgeable of royal forums and try to contribute where possible.
I want to apologise in advance for my informal comment style and grammar, I am ashamed to state that my formal school education is not at the level of most members but I will always be polite and courteous to all.

Hi :)

I am also posting from Nova Scotia (just outside of Halifax in a sleepy little seaside town, so to speak).

Good to "meet" you.

And a very warm welcome to our fold here ya have. After being online and talking with people for a few decades, I do tend to do conversational rather than the precise correct grammar of the English language. My grammar kinda wears army boots and I'm the gramma.

I came here for Ascot hats a few years ago. Had no clue about anything other than that how the British royalty works. I said my thoughts (which were wrong) and was directed to read and learn. If you do want to really learn, you're in the right place and there's them that will tell you where you are wrong in a heartbeat. Its how we learn. I'm just now getting to the point where I think I can give an educated guess with an opinion.

DOE: I find your grammar more than adequate, so no worries there, I think. I actually assumed you were a teacher from reading your posts! Your phrasing is quite lovely.

I just looked and Sidney is about as far north as our family cabin in the upper peninsula of Michigan. I love it up there!

I am curious- is you accent more like Maine (lahb-stah) or more like a basic Canadian accent (Hockey night broadcasters) or more like somewhere else - and if so, where? I "collect" accents and so I am always wondering what posters on TRF sound like.

You have a tough job. Do you go out all year? I'd assume the harbor freezes over - but could be wrong about that.

Anyway, and again - welcome, you are a lovely addition to our bunch of royal nuts, IMHO.

I fish out of Louisbourg, Cape Breton. 20 miles or so from Sydney. Lobster season runs from May 5 until July 27. During the rest of the year my brother and I own a motorcycle garage that specialises in after-market customising of British bikes. Old Norton Commandos, BSAs and Triumph Bonnevilles .
Thankfully lobster fishing here provides a great living so I'm able to indulge my hobbies.

As for my accent, it is 'typical east-coast Canadian' although not as pronounced as most lol.
For example, I talk over the phone with a lot of American motorcycle customers in the South-West and people there think I'm from Ireland lol, so there you go.

Gaelic is still spoken in the highlands of Cape Breton and the Gaelic College at St Anns provides Gaelic language education. Scottish and Irish roots run deep in Nova Scotia.
