Wal Mart just sent me a get well card.

Good Thursday morning to you all, getting closer my friends to another long weekend.  It will be even longer for me, as I have tomorrow off, making it a 4 day weekend, hallelujah!

Did Wal Mart really send me a get well card?  No.   Why would they, a billion dollar corporation probably wouldn't even send it's own employees a get well card.  

I joke about this because you may have noticed on the right hand side of the blog under "returning to my roots", the balance is slowly starting to climb.  That is the case because I have not bought any packs of any kind over the past couple of weeks.

Why, you may ask?  I haven't needed to.  The wife bought me a hobby box of 2009 OPC baseball which I still have to post on the blog here, likely sometime this weekend.  Plus a  bounty of great cards have found their way into my mailbox over the past week.

A couple that found their way to me were from Greg over at Plaschke, thy Sweater is Argyle.  This was our fourth trade so far, and it coat-tailed on the back of contest winnings that I had to send Greg for my 2nd contest a few weeks back.

Not a big trade in terms of number of cards, but quality wise, this trade hit the mark. 

Two more Maple Leafs cards found their way into my hands.  A Nikolai Kulemin autograph (come on Niko, I need you to pick it up a bit so I can get back out in front in the blogger hockey pool!), and a great dual jersey relic card of former Leaf goal J.S. Giguere, who is now in Colorado.

Thanks again Greg, looking forward to our next trade!

Thanks for reading, Robert
