The Clean-Up


-  The madre came down to visit.  She gave me a ride to a charity thrift store so I could donate some stuff: bags of clothes, a few mugs, an arty photo type piece.  Then we went to a used bookstore, where I sold some books.  Then I bought her lunch at a sandwich place where I spent all the money I got from the books.  This place has always been expensive, but I think they raised their prices even more.  I don't plan on going back.  Good sandwiches though. 

-  Anyway, she brought down a lot of cards from my younger days.  Almost all baseball and football.  I'll address this in more detail in future posts.

-  She also brought my trophy for winning Bleeding Green Nation's suicide contest last season.  It's cooler looking than I expected.

-  I spent a couple days on jury duty but didn't get picked for the actual jury.  There was a James Madison in the original juror pool, but he got called for a different trial.       

-  I'm way behind on card acquisition posts, and also on entering new cards into TCDB.      


  1. Looking forward to seeing those cards!

  2. Two weeks ago I went and got a hot pastrami sandwich (with chips and drink) and paid $22 (not including tip). I was blown away at how much the price has shot up in the past 2 years. It was delicious though.

  3. I'm glad that I never eat out.
