    ^^^^ my a$$... I just laughed it off! I must pack it ice and make straight for the Emergency Room. Perhaps they can reattach it successfully if I get there quickly enough.

    As all dutiful, responsible sons who have been raised well should do.

    A mint condition 1952 Mickey Mantle baseball card could break records at auction
    It's estimated the final cost of the card could exceed $10 million when the auction ends Aug. 27. The record is $6.6 million for a 1909 Honus Wagner card that was sold at auction a year ago, months after another 70-year-old Mantle card fetched $5.2 million.

    No matter the final price for the rare Mantle rookie card, it will be a hefty profit for the current owner, a New Jersey waste management entrepreneur who bought it for $50,000 at a New York City show in 1991.

    ^^^ that's great :)

    so...
    so, so, so...

    one of the more elusive birds in the 'hood is the gorgeous indigo bunting. They always come through in the late spring, often stay around for a while, and more than occasionally are here all summer. Their paired note calls are unmistakable and diagnostic (once one's familiar with them), and they often will perch at the tippy-top of the tallest tree in the are and sing -- so they're not really reticent. Sometimes, they even show up at feeders.
    But my luck in photographing one (or two), especially in the yard, runs hot and cold.
    This year has been a banner year for indigo buntings. I think there are four (or more) in the neighborhood, and we've frequently had two singing from different places in the yard. We've seen 'em regularly, too... but never when I've had a camera handy.
    Today, we came inside after our daily perambulation. I ambled to the kitchen and idly glanced out the window at the tube feeders in the yard. A blue-grey bird on one feeder caught my eye. Bingo! I zipped around the corner & grabbed the camera (which even had a tele lens on it).
    Of course, by then the bunting had moved to the back side of the feeder.
    I managed to snap a couple photos of its backside before it flew away. :blush:

    That's it poking out (a little bit) on the left-hand side at the bottom of the feeder. :p

    I feel like that guy in The Old Man and the Sea sometimes. ;)
