PAD Circus - 059 - Days Go By! PAD Stuff from gcrl!!

Holy smokes! Where did the days go!? My last post was launched on Wednesday, though it was supposed to be a Thursday post. That's still a couple days since my last break. I suppose that's what happens when vacation comes around and you don't schedule posts ahead of time. Ah well.

My family is home after an awesome trip to Houston and Galveston!

First of all, THANK YOU to gcrl for the box of cards I received in the mail. All I've done so far is open it and read the note. I cannot wait to see what goodies are in there! I'll be sharing those later this weekend, plus there is a box of "Buyback/Repack Stuff" for PAD Circus. I can;t wait to see what's going on in there... No, really. I can't wait.  Let's rip that puppy open!

Wow! There are a LOT of cards in there! I will spread this box out over a couple of posts during the season.

I will start with some 2014 Chipz:

For that matter, we had several folks with multiple pulls in there! Congratulations to everyone that grabbed some cardboard here. If you didn't get any, don't worry! There are still LOTS of cards in this box!
