In my baseball card world of blogging, there is a non-regular series that comes around called the "Blog Bat Around." I'm sure I've written about it here before, but if not, well, basically, the card bloggers in the world are assigned a topic and they write an entry about it. The idea is that after the 'deadline' for entries, one would start at the top of the list and work their way around to the other posts in the list (hence, batting around).
For my 'essay,' I managed to use very vivid memories of walking to a card shop near my grandparents' house in Cleveland along with Google Maps to help take a journey down memory lane.
Rather than re-post my latest foray into waxing nostalgia on here, I thought I would provide you with a link to my entry. Even if you are not a baseball card fan, or a sports fan, please check it out anyway. I think you'll find it worth the trip:
