Summer Contest of Sorts

My good friend Fuji-San has decided to resurrect his summer contest in a way... no need to bore you with the details, you can find them here...

and once again, not exactly back, but the Phils are off to a better start this year so I am looking forward to a more exciting year for myself.

It's been an interesting year for this 'ole Phillies Phan. Turned 50 in January, we lost my wife's Uncle in February, she worked for him and his wife (her aunt...) so consequently, she also lost her job of almost 30 years! (they could not make the business work with just the two of them and it would not support three people (not that we could find a third person to trust!) so the last few months has been filled with funerals, business closings, and yard sales prep to sell off stuff from the business. (30 years accumulates an absolute butt-ton of crappola!)

I have turned back towards my love of Hot wheels over the last 2 years, collecting those more than baseball cards.

and I've made four trips north this year for work in Wisconsin, which wouldn't be so remarkable except that this picture of yours truly:

was taken on the 18th of April, after a record blizzard/snowfall hit the Midwest while I was there!

Thanks for reading. now go enter Fuji's contest,
and as always, tellem ole Dawgbones sentcha!!

What's more shocking? The fact that Sam, your friendly neighborhood Dimwit has returned? Or that he's having a contest over there, right there, on his blog!!

NOPE, Your wrong on both, it's the mere fact that yours truly has made a post of this little fete!!

Hard to believe that I haven't made a post this year!! Actually, that one's easy to believe, a lot easier than the accompanying fact that I haven't actually made a post since July of last year!!!

I still read a lot of the stuff out here, and make comments here and there, and I'm not saying I'm back

so don't ask...

I am looking forward to another baseball season, and maybe picking up a few cards here and there, I really like the First Pitch inserts from the last couple sets, but am not too impressed with the base cards so I'll probably only pick up my Phils, if those.

I hope to make a go of Gintacuffs this year. I did get the first step last year and signed up, but lacked the funds when the boxes hit the streets!!

If I happen to owe anyone anything, please let me know. If it's money, please re-read the above portion of this post regarding "lack of funds"!!

Thanks for reading,
have a GReat day!!

Contest Winnings!!

Each and every week of the year, sometimes even when he is away on travel, Sports Card Info holds a contest. He comes across some of the best prizes.

With most of the football and other sports that I don't follow, I usually end up giving away my entries to one of the other participants.

Occasionally, he throws a prize up that I'd really like to add to my collection, which normally means one of my beloved Phillies.

Last week was one of those weeks... and I won!

A very nice jersey relic from Mr. Brett Myers.
Thanks for the card Dude!

And if you guys haven't seen these contests, stay away, it's better luck for me in the long run!!

Hello, is anybody out there?? Is this thing ON??

I cannot believe how fast time flies anymore!! I have made a grand total of 1, yes folks, you can count them that easily, 1 post this year!! I still read a lot of you guys, and am trying to comment more often.

I am back today with a comic book post (and help request). I have spent the last few months buying and eating  General Mills cereals, hunting for a complete set of the Batman/Superman comic books.
I have successfully attained books 1 thru 3 two times now!!

As the availability of "Specially Marked" cereal boxes containing these little gems is beginning to wane, I turn to the collector in all of us and ask,

Does anybody collect these? And more importantly. Do you have an extra #4?
I'd be happy to trade any or all of my extras for that elusive fourth comic.

Thanks for reading, Sorry for the shock of a new post out of my semi-delinquent butt!!!
Have a GReat day!!
Still a Phillies Phan after all these years!!
