After battling and defying doctors’ expectations for years, she passed away earlier this month. I have never known a kinder, more generous soul than my Grandma. I will miss her.
The time seems right to shift my priorities a bit. I don’t plan to slow down as a collector at all. In fact, I want to devote more time to my getting my collection in order. I do plan to make this blog less of a priority, however. I’m not going to abandon it. I still plan to write occasional posts, particularly regarding my interactions with my new friends in the blog world. But, like I said, most of my time is going to be devoted to sorting these little pieces of cardboard in order to be in a better position to do some trading. Knowing what I have and what I need turns out to be an important aspect of being a good trade partner.
I also certainly plan to continue to be an active blog follower, so I won’t be disappearing completely. You’re stuck with me. You just won’t have to deal with a bunch of lame posts about my Dodgers, at least for a while. Thanks for all of the support that many of you have given me and this blog (as well as Top of the Topps) in its fitful first year. I hope that with time it will evolve into something even better. But, for now, it’s time to rest and reflect.
