The Clean-Up


-  Volunteered for the Komen More Than Pink Walk.  Other than getting up at 4:30, it wasn't very strenuous.   

-  Won the suicide contest on an Eagles fan site.  

-  My reading has really taken a hit now that I'm not hanging out at the coffee place.  But I worked my way through Bangkok 8, by John Burdett.  Murder investigation told from the perspective of a Thai cop.  Now I'm reading Wicked - the Wizard of Oz spin-off.       

-  I've updated my Want List tabs.

-  No longer reading comments made after the deadline.  It's set at 3 days, so that should be plenty of time. 

-  No cards today, but here's this:

Another Blogger Trade

Portrait of an Artist - David Hockney

So I traded a few cards to Jay a while back, and he sent me a large quantity of Giants cards.  I was hoping for some team page help, as my Giants page was oddly weak.  I got 4 cards for the team page plus plenty of bonus content.

He re-posted his offer recently, and I chose the Rangers.  Less slots to fill in the team page, and I sent him a bit less.  But he still sent me a lot, so let's see how I did.  

And some Jeff Russells, a few more Will Clarks, a couple Nolan Ryans and Ruben Sierras.  A Cole Hamels, a Tom Henke, and a Julio Franco.  So a good batch.  The Juan Gone is an upgrade over the Juan Gone I had in the team page.  The Al Oliver is a place holder, as his Rangers stint was short but productive.

Small TCDB Trade


The Human Condition - Rene Magritte

Sent two football cards (plus two throw-ins for protection) to Florida and Tim sent me three cards I like more:


-  Legend who had his career diminished by injury.

-  Second best goalie of all-time.

-  Not his rookie card, but I needed a Chipper for my Braves page.
