Moose With Mug

Almost Two Already!?

There was actually very little doubt in the matter once I finally found a copy of Dozois' first annual Year's Best SF collection, but I can now confirm that as much as I want to, there's no going to the 1980 Phillies reunion this Saturday in Atlantic City. It's a shame because it would've really been nice to fill a couple holes in the autograph portion of my collection.

A number of issues prevent my attending, the most limiting of which is money -- I can't afford to go, not even for a couple of the least expensive autographs. More importantly, however, is the fact that we're celebrating Tank's 2nd birthday on Sunday and we need to get the place ready for the friends and family coming over. I'd lose a day in making the trip -- a day better spent helping Mrs. Moose get the house looking respectable.

I don't know which is harder for me to believe -- that it's been 25 years since the Phillies won the World Series or that Tank turns two on Monday.
