No Man's Land

I guess when you get down to it, it can be pretty expensive to get items from point A to point B. Diesel fuel is always expensive and semis don't get the best gas mileage. You can get practically same day delivery of a package on the other side of the country if you buy it a seat on a commercial airplane. I remember a radio ad that mentioned trains can move millions of pounds of product over 200 miles on a single gallon of gas. I wonder how many gallons are spent getting it up to speed, though?

And how much money spent on meth?
We've all dealt with shipping cards across the country, as well as across the seas. It's not bad enough that crossing a Great Lake is so expensive, but now we have to deal with Canada Post acting all....well, whatever you call acting out in Canada. I'm sure they will apologize when it's all over. It's just strange how costly it is. It's not like Canada is some island (PEI excluded). At the right spot, you can just walk through the woods and over the border. But for some reason, it's like mailing to Hawaii. If Hawaii was not a US state.

DJ at Sportscards From the Dollar Store sent me another small mailer before the fear of a stoppage up north. I'm still sitting on a return package. I might strap it to a moose if I don't get a go sign from Doug.

Love the flat top on Frank. All that's missing is the dog pound whooping it up in the background.

Bicks rookie card. Hope he does well in Carolina. It sucks more what we had to do to dump his contract, but maybe he will find his scoring touch again. That Panger card seems so dark. I remember seeing a playoff game in the old Chicago Stadium when Pang let in this horrible wrap around backhand goal where the puck was moving about 4 MPH. Not a good game.

O Pee Chee vintage!!!! I like that Stan the Man is 4 of the 5 images on the team leaders. It's obvious one image is used twice, but I think they also mirrored it to get one more image. Goofy.

Thanks again, Doug. You should think about moving. Or calling out the Mounties.

  1. Great song. Much better than that one featuring the Lost in Space guys.
