I do my best every day, to live life in the moment. It's something I've preached for years. We truly only have right now - this breath, this heartbeat - for living. Work is a given, so there's 45-50 hours gone plus the two to three hours I spend commuting everyday. I could read, blog, enjoy music or cards, eat, sleep,
exercise, visit friends etc. Time only spreads itself around so far and then it's bedtime. If I could keep my eyes open longer, I'd be writing more often. So given this, I am behind on blogging/sharing the great trades that came my way over the holidays.
P-town Tom, always waiting - and thanks for that! Here are some of the great and colorful beauties he sent my way at the end of December:
Tom wrote a nice note on the back of this calendar intro. This is more of a note to myself - GET THIS CALENDAR NEXT YEAR!
Minis from 87 and 88, next to a 2011 Mud Hen!
Colorful and odd
2015 A&G featuring one of my least favorite pics of Miggy. Nice looking design overall.
Topps 2000 - already 15 years old. A bit freaky.
Tom is always great to share his extra Sandbergs. Along with Mark Grace, Sandberg is a favorite Cubbie. I have PCs of both boys.
That said - written? - a package from Matt, BWTP contains nothing less than a surprise or two or six:
2006 Turkey Red pinstripe; 2003 Finest Refractor Oswalt
2008 shiny Spectrum /75; 2011 A&G mini pinstripe
2015 Museum big fat card /99 sweet!
All great additions to my growing Astros collection but wait for it...
Sticker, schmicker. who cares? It's ALTUVE! 2014 Prizm, all mine!
Surprise?!?! Matt, wow! You knocked me over with this one.
I am so fortunate to trade with the best guys around the blogs. I have so much more cardboard to share. Thanks for being a patient bunch too!
