First things first. Happy New Year to everyone and I hope your Christmas was enjoyable.
Now, for the other matter at hand.
Where the hell have I been?
As you can plainly see my last post was on October 24th, lamenting the death of one Soupy Sales. On October 26th I woke up feeling quite exhausted and quite ill. Now, exhaustion for anyone these days amounts to a further steeled resolve to push on with the day. Everyone gets tired. What concerned me was the illness. I rarely get sick, the last time I had a cold was the mid-nineties. I took a drive to the local walk-in clinic hoping to get something to get me back on my feet.
Long story short, I was diagnosed with H1N1. Holy crap did it kick the tar out of me. 4 weeks later, coupled with a couple scary trips to the Emergency Ward of the hospital things appeared to have settled. Thankfully in that time I managed to keep from infecting my wife and anyone else that needed to cross my path during that time.
The last month of the year proved to be a massive project consisting of catching up what had been neglected at work, sorting out travel plans and coverage for the Christmas Holidays and a daily bathing in Purell keeping the dreaded germs that destroyed my November at bay.
The new year seems to be a perfect time to re-establish this weak, minuscule project of mine and to hopefully share with the rest of you the enjoyment for me that is card collecting. I also plan to do some housekeeping in the next little while. Before the wheels fell off this apple cart I was in the process of gladly finding a home for some 1992 Upper Deck baseball cards. I have not forgotten and will shortly be contacting some of you for mailing addresses.
