Let us reflect upon the sacrifices...

With the tears a Land hath shed

Their graves should ever be green.

While we enjoy our weekend...

It's a debt that can never be repaid.

not just this Memorial Day, be every day.

How much indeed!!

Although no sculptured marble should rise to their memory, nor engraved stone bear record of their deeds, yet will their remembrance be as lasting as the land they honored.

Rant, maybe... Unhappy, YES!

So I bought two more packs of Teenymates, plus I had one at the house that I'd opened a while back.

The Athletics/Dodgers combo was in the two packs I bought. I'm resigned to the fact that I'm going to get duplicates at this point in the progression, but to blindly pull two packs and have them both contain the same figure/puzzle pieces just sucks!! The rest of the photo show the duplicates that I have available for trade as I am still trying to get the remaining five pieces.

If you have any of these, or need/want any of the figures pictured, just let me know.

FCBD 2014

I attended this year's FCBD at Zeno's also, and got to hang out with Bill Meiggs for a while too. You'll recall from last year's post, I got a free sketch card done by him of Johnny Storm, aka the Human Torch. It's framed and hanging in my cubicle at work.

And this year is no exception as Bill was also doing free sketch cards, adding to my collection.

I now have Aunt Petunia's Ever-Lovin' Blue-Eyed Thing:

and he looks GReat hanging with 'ole Flamehead at work! Thanks for another awesome sketch-card Bill!
