Keith Reed, 2000 Bowman #264


This year, I'm thankful for:

-Fantastic trading partners like the mother-daughter team that sent me the nifty autographed card featured here

-A rejuvenated Orioles farm system that is full of top-level talent far superior to Keith Reed (Sorry, Keith)

-A small but appreciative (and responsive) readership that motivates me to keep blogging on those lazy days

-A supportive, close-knit family that includes a great new brother-in-law

-A stable new job with a much shorter commute

-Friends, including the new ones I've made and the old ones I've reconnected with

-Good health for me and my loved ones. Don't ever want to take that for granted

-My first two trips to the West Coast. San Diego is raipdly becoming one of my favorite places. By the by, the O's visit the Padres next June...

-Buying my first home - I'm in a holding pattern right now, but it should be a reality later this winter if all goes well

That's what comes to mind at present, though I could probably think of other things if I sat here long enough. If you have anything of your own to add, leave a comment. Happy Thanksgiving...even if you're Canadian.

Me, I'm thankful that my wife is in remission after her fight with Lymphoma this year....for my three great kids....and the fact that my boys only have a year and a half of college left and I can think about retiring....and for friends, some of which I've never met.

I'm just glad to be alive myself... But I really love the blog-o-sphere and I love any blog that can remind me of the great Keith Reed! I really thought he would be an All Star for many years! Great blog my friend!
