First, I want to thank everyone for their comments and visits. My daily readership has more than doubled over the past week or so and I'm excited about the new viewers. Of course, I also want to thank my longtime readers, without them this blog would have shriveled up and died a long time ago. Mo, CK, TCP, Karmic, Lester, and 3rdStone are the primary reasons I'm still writing - it's been their continuous visits and support that's shaped this blog into what it is today. If you don't read their stuff, you ought to - tell them I sent you.
Second, I want to thank all of the bloggers who have supported my baseball card interests. I've already completed 4 trades, and I've got another 2 ready to be mailed tomorrow...plus a few more in the works. The community of bloggers interested in cards has turned out to be a GREAT find on my part. Ebay is nice for exceedingly rare cards, but for set completionists (like myself) trading is the way sports cards were meant to be enjoyed. If you haven't checked out my want list, please do - then send me yours and we'll see what we can work out.
Finally, I'm off for the weekend, so there will be no new posts until Sunday (most likely). I hope you all enjoy the last weekend of political advertisements on TV. Just think, in a week neither Obama nor McCain will care what you think! (Just kidding...sort of.)
