Ambrose Dunderton


Meet Derek's father, Ambrose Dunderton from Doctor Digi's House of Stamps! Ambrose enjoys his role as the patriarch of the Dunderton clan and is proud to be a retired clam digger, although he is still able to identify what region of the world a clam is from by counting the rings on its shell blindfolded. As a senior citizen, Ambrose enjoys several hobbies including collecting vintage girlie magazines, taste testing each new bottle of whiskey opened at the local pub and raising mushrooms for the little fairies to sit upon. Even with such varied interests, Ambrose decided to settle down and started placing personal ads in the local newspaper looking for that special someone to share his time or perhaps, keep it for him!

  14. haha, sounds so true of me. Great card Tammy, great coloring.
    You know, we have to have pass words to get in and out of our building, to get on line ect. all of these passwords change every 3 months except the one to enter the building, I have had the same pass word for 30 years for entering. The other night I must have punch in 7 times and just went totally blank..had to call security to let me in. hahaha.. So this card sounds just like me :)
