Giving A Thank You And The Winds Of Change

Before I get the focus of this post started, I need to send a thank you to the incomparable Brad, from the always entertaining Brad's Blog.  A recent giveaway post was offered up and, like many others, I accepted eagerly. 

What arrived at my mailbox a few days later just blew my socks off. The darn thing was absolutely chock full of Cardinals.

That was one hell of a package, Brad. Many thanks to you sir and I hope your impending change of address goes well!

The great Sam Cooke once sang a great song about change, way back before I was even a glimmer in my parents eyes.

 One very inspiring song, wouldn't you agree?

Well my friends there comes a time when changes must be made. For me, those changes include working on becoming a better blogger in the coming year and becoming a smarter collector as well.

Now you may have noticed that all of my previous posts and pages have disappeared. No, don't panic. I'm not getting out of collecting, nor am I closing down this blog. Quite simply, the urge to change things up smacked me upside the head quite suddenly today, and I thought "what the heck, let's change things up a bit!".

So, here I am. Looking for a new direction and trying to decide what I really want to say to the collecting world. 

Haven't quite figured it all out yet, but I'm sure a fresh start will be a good thing. Hope you'll find my new efforts worthwhile.

Thanks for sticking around.



  1. Good luck with the blog reboot! Keeping it fresh is always a good idea.

    1. Yes. Sometimes you gotta just wipe the chalkboard clean and start over. Going to be taking a creative writing class this coming spring so hopefully I can become a better writer!

  2. Looking forward to the new format. I sent you an email the other day about a possible trade. Let me know.

    1. Thanks Mark. Been a little behind checking my email, but I did get it. Package will be coming your way next few days.
