I managed a short run this morning which was nice. New shoes are fast! We went to the outdoor flea market as it was rained out last week. I was surprised that Caleb was game until he equated the market with where I got him World Cup cards the week before. He twisted my arm until we went and got more. Out of the first 2 packs or 12 cards we got six doubles - boo hoo. There was a fellow with a big truck making rotisserie chickens and ...
