I built a little cat house for Hugo and Holiday.

The other portion of my weekend was spent burying clay bricks on the pitcher's mound of the high school field so my pitcher's would have better footing during the spring baseball season.
My next door neighbors recently brought home a new kitten, so I crafted them a cat tree. Hugo had to test it out before I could deliver it to them. Yes, I've been busy.
Last night I was cruising eBay for Cubs cards. You know, nothing major, just window shopping. Then I saw Topps had released its Heritage High Numbers set. And there it was . . . a David Ross card in a Cubs uniform! I went to bed dreaming of owning my very own personal David Ross Cubs card!
Simple pleasures, folks. Simple pleasures.
Maybe you remember my dilemma about sending Ross a TTM with some really sweet custom cards? Well, I decided I would wait and try my chance at the Cubs Convention this winter with the customs. But now there's a mass produced card available and I'm all about adding a few to my collection with one specifically earmarked for a TTM for spring training.
After work today, with some loose change in my pocket, I headed off to my LCS to pick up a Ross card.
The owner was on vacation, and his art loving daughter was "running" the shop instead. She didn't know where any of the singles were. Let's be honest here: she knew how to ring up the cash register and that was about it. Bummer. I came home with a pack of cards instead.
But, I had been building up good karma! Undoubtedly, my odds must of increased from the actual 4% to something closer to 100%. Right? I mean how could they not? For crying out loud, I spent three hours building a cat tree for my neighbors!
Let's rip in and see . . .
Wait, I skipped a card. This one was card number five in the pack, right before the Pirate rookie.
Yes, I cashed in all of my good karma that I had been building up for a David Ross card.
And I couldn't be happier.
As always, thanks for stopping by and celebrating the happy moments in life with me.
