Turning 45, Bobbleheads and Stuff Like That

Shelf of Bobbleheads
Ok, I turned 45 and that makes me a middle-aged person. I can not the check the 35-44 box anymore. Now, I check the 45-54 box. Oh well, only five more years until I get my AARP benefits.

Anyway, I think as I get older I am getting goofier and goofier. I have thing about bobbleheads now. I have had a couple from sporting events and my son has given me a couple, but a friend of mine really got me into them and now I am looking for deals on EBAY for them. Well, I guess it better than other things that I could be doing:

Scott Hattberg Bobblehead. This was given out at the A's game last year in honor of the 10th anniversary of the A's AL record 20-game win streak. Push a button and you hear the great Bill King call Hatty's Home Run that won number 20
Former A's catcher Ray Fosse and broadcaster Ray Fosse-notice the mic in the hand. My son got this at a game and whined enough that he gave it to me-Thank You
A's Grant Balfour Gnome
Oakland A's Ryu (from Street Fighter)-My son got in a kids give-away and I whined again
From left to right-A's Jack Cust, Dodgers Jeff Kent and the Giants Randy Winn
Barry Bonds Nesting Dolls
Padres Bruce Bochy (left) and Jake Peavy  bobblehead refrigerator magnets
The A's Yoenis Cespedes
Rick Monday of the Cubs. I saw this on EBAY and had to have it. The reason he is holding the American Flag is because in 1976, two morons decided to come on the field and burn the flag. Monday ran over (he was playing center field) and grabbed it, saving it from being burned
Arnold Palmer-Given out on his 80th birthday at PNC Park
The Warriors Klay Thompson-A XMAS gift from my daughter
Former Brewers manager Harvey Kuenn-He lead the Brewers to the 1982 AL Championship-The team was known as Harvey's Wallbangers
ESPN'S College Gameday's Lee Corso. 
ESPN's College Gameday's Kirk Herbstreit
Even though I am considered middle-age, I still haven't truly become a full adult in many people's eyes. Even though I am pretty responsible and take care of business, I am still consider goofy. Will I ever truly grow up fully?? Who knows??


  1. those bobbleheads make me smile: my husband is turning 48 this year and i'm also counting down the days until the AARP discounts kick in.


Love hearing comments on stuff. Please tell me what you think of the places I have been to. If you like them or not. I love comments.
