Fun Monday


This week's host is Mariposa, and this is the assignment: FUN Monday is for us to have some FUN on a Monday...so I'm going to get into your minds and do just that...have some FUN!Collections... We all have them...and if you don't, you do....you just may not realize it. For some reason or another we all collect something and we collect it for reasons that will definitely make for good reading. So on Monday, I want to see your collection. If you don't have or don't want or CAN'T (wink) show us a picture, then tell us what the collection is in 10 words or less. Then tell us why you started collecting it.

My favorite collection is my autographed baseballs. I started collecting them years ago when my Service Manger, Mike Larson asked me to go to baseball card shows with him. Mike is a great guy and we had a lot of fun, getting autographs and meeting some great ball players.


This is my collection of autographed baseballs.
Most of them were signed in the '80's,
the most recent was last year.


Here are some close-ups.
Duke Snyder, Maury Wills, Willie Mays.

Ted Williams, Mickey Mantle, Fernando Valenzuela and Ernie Banks.


The other thing I collect is books, I have books everywhere.

On my nightstand,



Staged for reading, next,

Ready for donation,

Your autographed baseballs are impressive. Books are top of the collection list today!

popular theme for books I think.

Your baseball collection must be worth a few dollars. Made me think of one of my favorite movies: The Sandlot!
