Where have I been?

Stop tapping your foot. I have my reasons.

I was out of town during my daughter's college orientation. My dog has arthritis in his back and neck and lets out the most ear-piercing, heart-wrench squeals of pain. I'm juggling about five different tasks at work that each, by themselves, is known for being time-consuming.

Baseball cards are still on my mind. But that's as far as those thoughts travel these days.

It's 10:45 at night and I'm really too tired to type out words, but it's important to show the cards that people have sent me.

Some period of time ago, I received an email from Kyle of Nolan's Dugout reconnecting and letting me know he had some cards off my want list. Back then I had time to reply to emails, and that's why I have some cards now to show.

Ah, yes, clearly I am out of practice and need to go back to blogging school if I'm starting out with a 1988 Fleer card.

But actually it's the final card I needed to complete the set. My mission to complete most of the 1980s Fleer sets has claimed another victim. The '81 Fleer set is next.

These three cards are the final non-variation cards that I needed to finish the 2013 Panini Hometown Heroes set. So, essentially, I've completed that set, too.

Two sets completed on this post. Pretty good for being absent, huh?

Kyle also took care of a couple more Nebulous 9 needs of the Kershaw variety. I am getting very close to 600 Kershaw cards. Let's hope I am still blogging when I reach that milestone.

These aren't as exciting as the Hometown Heroes trio. They're about as exciting as this post.

Look: some other cards that I needed.

I think.

I'm hoping to get another post up -- maybe even two -- before the week is out.

But I need to see what life is demanding first.

I hope to be more present the next time


  1. Nice to see you back. And I can relate. Real life can be a bitch. Congratulations Re: your daughter and I hope your dog gets well soon. Nice cards too :)

  2. Sorry to hear about your dog having arthritis. Squeals of pain coming from dogs are just as bad from humans.

    P.S. Hope things mello out at work. Seems like this is a busy time of the year for a bunch of us.
