The Newest Member of Vealtones

This weekend was the annual card show in Kalamazoo, Michigan, where I live. It's my favorite show, and I look forward to it every year, am often counting the days like a five-year-old waiting for Christmas. This year, though, I missed the show. And I could care less. 

What would make a cardboard addict not care about missing his favorite show?

Well, that'll do it. Meet Evy Jo, the newest Vealtone, my daughter, born Saturday, February 9th, the same day that some card show was going on. She's gorgeous and already brilliant and healthy and--OK, I'll stop gushing. 

It kind of puts everything in perspective. I'll likely be a little slower on posts in the near future, and for those of you I've bee talking to about trades, it'll likely be a while before I get back to those offers. I'll be busy enjoying this sweetheart. 

Don't worry. Evy Jo's a daddy's girl, a future collector, so we'll be back soon.

    Enjoy her now, there will be plenty of time for cards later.

    Besides, next week she will be graduating from college, or it will seem like it.

  9. Congrats. In that first pic she looks like she wants to bunt, or do a tap dance. Knowing how babies can be it is probably just gas.
