Blue - My mood in Baseball cards.

I woke up this morning to an empty driveway.
Not even a late 90s Pedro brightens your day after finding out your car has been stolen.
The responding officer said that only about half the cards stolen here are ever found.  The rest make it to Mexico.
If I was still in MO the police report would have been in the paper.  (press - press prof)   Here it won't.

My severance ran out.
I was enjoying my time off with pay.

 I got a new job.
It is not what I want to be doing but bills must be paid.

It is a 45 minute drive to the new job.
 Now I must have the wife pick me up and drop me off. 

I'm working the night shift.
 










 My wife will now have to pick me up at 5AM in the morning.  She is not a morning person!!!


 My birthday was last weekend.
I didn't get a single card.

 I only  get my oldest son for part of the summer.
He goes back to MO next weekend. 

I haven't been getting any cards.
 My last trade package had these Topps Town Doubles in it.

Buchh is on the DL...











Along with Lester.  And Beckett left the game yesterday with a twisted knee.

Some of these cards might not even be blue!!
I'm the kind of color blind where blues and purples look the same.

I could have found some bluer cards but all these cards came from Too Many Grandersons about a week ago.  That was before the blues hit.  So I snuck a trade post in on all the anti trade post guys.  These are only a tiny sampling of the great stuff Dennis sent.  Only the blue stuff.  The rest were almost all different kinds of parallels.  Awesome stuff.  Thanks for the great cards Dennis.

Hey, blue cards are HAPPY cards.

Yeah, any stolen car would make the paper where I live, too. I hope it never changes.

Just realized my fly rod and reel was in there from fishing last weekend. It wasn't one of those crazy expensive rigs like some people have but it was the most expensive one I could afford.

Hi Adam, sorry I haven't been around. I got out of collecting cards. There were a lot of things that annoyed me and I had a hard time finding a happy medium where I could have fun. I was spending too much money too. I'm glad to see you are still enjoying the hobby. Thanks for continuing to read my blog too. I still follow yours.
