I've had a lot come at me this last few weeks. It was announced that my employer is being acquired by a larger company and I am staring into the teeth of a major transition. Then my 84 year old mother had to have emergency surgery a bit over a week ago. I was up there last week, though I mainly was dog sitting, since I wasn't allowed in the hospital. She did come home about a day before I left. So, I will be going up again next week to help her recover. With the job uncertainty and the extra travel expenses, I am going to take a hobby hiatus. So, this post will likely be my last hurrah for a little while. It isn't like I was all that prolific to begin with, so no one probably would have noticed anyways.
Before all this came up, I was watching a number of signed 1961 Fleer cards on an auction site. There were seven I was watching, but five sold for way more than I was willing to pay. But, I did win two!
As you might expect, there is a wonderful SABR biography.
