The good news is: the weather has unexpected gloriousity here--it was 50 degrees today, not a cloud in the sky. Baseball spring is in the air.
The bad news is, we're dealing with mail.
We got word that the one time we ever sent a card in a sleeve and toploader and painter's tape in a regular, rather than padded, envelope....terrible things happened. Unspeakable things. For instance, the toploader cracked. At least the card itself was not hurt. It's not like we blithely sent it off without a care in the world, either; it had on its hat and coat...just no mittens. It even said FRAGILE DO NOT BEND. hahaha!
The main frazzle source is preparing TTM letters with Lucy to send to spring training players. We call it the Allen & Ginter Project. I don't know how you guys keep track of everything. But we swear on a stack of Mets cards that this won't defeat us, for tomorrah is another day!
We get more hopeful that we are becoming one of the Baseball Card Blog People when one of you admits to getting behind, or confused, or forgetting if you sent something in a trade.
Because that's our M.O. And we don't mean Micah Owings. Most Baseball Card Blog people's DNA seems more like David, who sends tens of thousands of organized packets out each and every week, leaving us to wonder how ya do it.
