Wednesday a 23 year old man entered the Lilburn, Georgia Wal-Mart. His first stop was the sporting goods department, where he selected an Easton baseball bat. Even though the weather here isn't quite showing it spring training is just around the corner. The young man felt he needed some batting practice, so he went to the electronics department, where he proceeded to destroy 29 television sets worth $22,877. Why he did that remains a mystery. After smashing the sets he simply sat on the floor and waited for the police. After he was read his rights he kept silent. He did have some medicine on him for depression. I am hoping at some time he explains his actions but I am not holding my breath waiting.
I am starting a second blog that I am calling The 1956 Adventure. To save you the trouble of going there I am putting a copy of the first post here.
I am starting a second blog to record something that I have been considering doing for a long time. The main focus of this blog will be Topps 1956 baseball cards. I was born in 1956 and I thought it would be fun to put a set of those cards together. At this time I have one card and will be getting a couple of more very soon. When they arrive I will scan them and research the player and write about him. Of course the first posts will be common cards. I probably will never get the entire set because the cost of the star cards will be high, probably more than I want to pay for them. Posts here will be sporadic as I will only be updating when I have something to add.
The secondary focus will be other things from 1956. I also collect comic books so any that I find with that cover date I will add and post here. The same with any magazines that I can find. How far I get will remain to be seen. The first actual post will be soon.
Whenever I add to it I will post a link here. Sometime soon I will also be doing a third blog, but I doubt anybody who reads here regularly will be interested in it. It will be a list of the baseball cards I need to finish the sets that I am putting together. I have been trading cards with a few bloggers and this way they can see what I need for our trades.
