200th Post Celebration!

Welcome to the 200th post celebration party! JD and I started this little project way back when in order to start him a collection that is going to be worth millllllllllions some day...or maybe depreciate horribly, who really knows! Lots has changed in the last several months. Jacoby has gotten older...
Umm....yep, that's my boy.....sucking on a catnip to a power outlet.....sigh. It was nice of Wally to stop by for the photo shoot though! We also decided to invite a few guests over...

We all talked about it, and the general consensus of this blog after 200 posts...

...but we are working on it. It gets tougher as the seasons change, as well as the sports interest. I may need to start covering the cactus league to find some material to get me through the winter!
200 posts seems so long ago. Here are a few highlights from way back when I first started this humble little blog...
On June 2nd, 2009...
Wayne Brady, Dana Carvey, and Jerry Matthers celebrated birthdays
The average gasoline price was $2.67
The average cost of a gallon of milk $2.67 (amazing coincidence eh? Its as if I could not really find this information so I just made up the number to be the same as gas!)
Top box-office movie: UP
Top Television show: Law and Order: SVU
Mike's Savings account balance: HEY, NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS! (but significantly less since I started collecting!)
New to DVD rental: Revolutionary Road
The Sims 3 is released on June if have two fake lives is not already challenging enough, why not throw on a 3rd...seriously, I tried that game, and the lazy punk would not even get up and go to work!
Well, you get the idea. Not a ton has happened in the last couple of months. All I know is that thanks to the blogosphere, I have met some great people, made some great trades, learned a little bit about card collecting, and have in turned helped others start their hobby.
Though I definitely feel a little less green than I did when I started, I know that I still have a ton to learn about this hobby and look forward to soaking up even more of the blogospheres vast knowledge for a long time to come. Thanks for welcoming me into your neighborhood. I have had a blast!
