The most difficult one

     This first one is always the most fun.  But in my case it is also the most difficult one.  I don't like to write.  There... I said it.  I don't like to make waves or express my emotions to people if I feel differently.  It feels like I'm trapped sometimes trying to be too nice in this world.  This is my test case.  My chance to express myself, just for me.  My world has finally calmed down.
     My wife has pushed me back into collecting baseball cards, well maybe pushed isn't the best word.  We would go to a store and I would wonder by the packs of cards and tell her I was going to get a pack.  She would say "OK" but then I would find a reason not to get them.  Finally, she forced me to a few packs...  and it was AWESOME!!!!!  The rush of cracking some wax!!!  The feeling of finding stars and rookies!!!  The joy of finding a card with a great picture!!!
    Now I am hooked again.  (Thanks, Honey) My goal is to collect the base set of all of the Topps baseball cards.  I know, I know, it's very original but I have to start somewhere!!!  It was actually my brother's idea first so maybe we will link up and complete this together.
   So off I go.  Writing, even though I'm not a writer.  It's going to be bumpy.  It might even get ugly but at least it will be fun....
