I should have saved this entire post series for Christmas. While I know there are no pay-off-my-mortgage types of cards here, it definitely would have been a fun 12 Packs of Christmas series. Since this is the fifth pack, should I expect five golden rings? I'm sure at least five of the players in this stack of 33 cards have at least one World Series ring. I ain't doin' no research to find out, but you're welcome to figure it out if you wish.
This is the first post in this series I'm writing at least a day ahead of time, so I can't tell you how my day went. But my plans included going to McDonald's for lunch. Thanks to bad weather, the pandemic, and I believe some labor issues, fried potatoes have been in short supply here. For more than a month, only small-size French fries have been available at McDonald's, even for the value meals (or sets, as they call them). Japan has potatoes; Hokkaido is known for its spuds. But McDonald's uses Idaho potatoes here, so they've been stuck without starches to peel. Other restaurants have had no such problems, because they use local taters, and some restaurants have even offered double-size fries for the price of regular fries.
Well, all that ended on Monday, as McDonald's has said they've fixed their supply chain issues. So I'm planning to get my favorite meal - a double cheeseburger set with fries and a Coke. It's the small things in life I look forward to, huh? (Edit before the post goes live - got my meal and a spicy chicken sandwich, too. Those things have a really good spicy sauce. The fries were delicious and fresh from the fryer! It was definitely worth the short walk.)
Speaking of small things, let's look at some 2.5" x 3.5" pieces of cardboard.
Well, this particular pack didn't do so well for me. I had two cards for the awards and only four for the archives. I put aside four more that could be useful in the future, but in the end, only six of the cards here were needed.
Oh well. I'm off to bed to dream of French fries. Until next time...
