My philatelic milestones have been replaced by medical milestones. Just came back this afternoon from my 60th operation since 2015 and earlier this month (August 13th) marked my 1000th medical procedure since 2015. But I am still one of the luckiest people around, 6 out of 10 dialysis patients die within 5 years and 9 out of 10 Stage 4 cancer patients die within 5 years.

Here is my advice on beating the odds and achieving milestones. Stay more positive than doubtful, stay more optimistic than fearful, be more determined than defeated, feel more like a victor than a victim.

@GeoffHa

The three are coil stamps from the first Definitive Set (SE wmk). I dont have a used version of one of the 1d red coils. It is lined up.
And I dont have a mint or used version of one of the 2d green coils. It is serious money and way beyond my reach.
The rest are Seahorses.
There are of course varieties to the low value overprints but I have never bothered with them.
On the other hand, I have all paper and perforation varities of Irish-designed definitives....Gerls, Architecture, treasures, birds, flowers etc.
It will be a relief when I can finally draw a line.

So, Tom Swift, it would be really neat to see your Canada no. 3; not many of them around. Is it possible to post a scan?

I've been working on a "One 19th-Century Mint Postal Card from Everywhere" collection since April 2018, and yesterday I got one from French Guiana, thus completing South America, my second continent (after Australia). Four continents and a lot of islands to go....
