You just never know.

A dual meaning with that post title (double edge sword). Today was/is a sad day as my Aunt Shelby passed away just as my Uncle and I were getting in from church. She was the baby and only girl, 14 years younger than my Uncle Fred the eldest of four siblings and now the only surviving. My Uncle buried my dad back in 98' and my Uncle J.C. in 03'. The funeral is going to be this Wednesday as her children want to make sure in no delays especially for Fred to make it there (5-6 hour drive into Canton, Ga.). He is torn apart, and I can only hope by the fast service that he is able to get through this time. He spoiled my Aunt her entire life, needless to say they were close. I hope his depression will part him quickly, it has been a rough day for sure. It's hard for me to watch him hurt like that. But........

I always say to make lemonade when given lemons.

So this afternoon while taking a a few minutes to allow Fred to eat something I grabbed up a non sports set that I had brought back from my house last week. It was the Series 1 Harley Davidson set. I browsed through the cards why I pondered on just how and when to tell him about Shelby. Low and behold, look at what was in this set of cards.

This card would fit nicely into the Flag/July 4th binder. I'll have to see if I have another set back home.

This card would fit into my President's binder.

A view of the back with the write up about President Reagan.

A baseball player.....A Braves player.......Warren Spahn the HOfer...

See you just never know. I'm not sure if I have ever actually looked at these cards before or if I just forgot which is absolutely possible.

Normally, I wouldn't have put out a post today, but this is just that it is. Besides, I'm not sure what Wednesday will bring just yet.


  1. Johnny I'm sorry to hear of the loss of your aunt. I'm sure your uncle will appreciate the support you're sure to provide him.

  2. Rats, tough to deal with this around the holidays. Glad you're being strong.

  3. So very sorry for your loss. My thoughts are with you and your family.
