It has been a year, hasn't it? Two weeks ago, the final week in October mind you, we had an ice storm here. I lost so many branches. I've spend a good part of the last two weeks cleaning up. It wouldn't be so bad except that I was only about 75% done with the clean up from the July wind storm that took out 8 or so large oak trees. Needless to say, I've spent a lot of time operating a chain saw. But, you aren't here for the "woe is me" stories.
Getting those TCMAs from Night Owl really got me excited about finishing that set. A few eBay purchases and a visit to Sportlots and, with these Hank Aaron and Brooks Robinson cards, I am now done.
There was a big card show in Dallas last weekend, but I decided not to go. I went last year and had a great time, but the COVID19 situation down here is getting worse. I am not sure how it is elsewhere, but in the Oklahoma/Texas area there is a big overlap between the card collecting community and the subset of citizens who think coronavirus falls somewhere in the range of "not serious" to "hoax." Reports were that the show was packed, so I am glad I didn't throw myself into that Petri dish.
