Here kitty kitty...

Oh, come on! How else would you call a Prowling Cat?? As most of my readers know, I have been actively pursuing the new Teenymates MLB figures this year, and am (probably foolishly) attempting to complete at least the puzzle portion of this set.

I've also begged and pleaded with everyone for any unused/unwanted pieces of said puzzle. I received 1 response to my pleas, and 1 envelope in yesterday's mail from The Prowling Cat.

He and I have traded in the past and I really appreciate his assistance in my latest quest. He sent me 6 of the remaining 11 for my picture, leaving me just 5 left to complete!!

Thanks there Cat! He also included a few wayward Phils for my personal collections.

Thanks for these as well! And I hope you and the missus are recovering well.

GReat morning!

So, I forgot the ointment that I use on my new tattoo and had to run across the street to Target this morning.
Stopped by the card aisle and bought a rack pack of Opening Day which I pulled several base cards I needed plus another mascot!!
and one pack of TeenyMates in which I got 1 duplicate, two puzzle pieces and:

Heck yeah!! A Limited Glow-In-The-Dark figure, of course, he's the most likely hit at 1:32 odds, but I'll take it!! He came with a Dodger which is available, along with 2 Rangers and 2 Indians, I believe.

two more pieces for the bottom row.
