Ventriloquist Figures and Baseball

I just can’t get enough is the thought that keeps creeping into my conscious and sub conscious mind. I pose it this way when I am awake and not working my thoughts are about ventriloquist figures, which one will I find today, how shall I arrange the newest addition into the fold or how will I dress him? If my mind isn’t thinking these things I find I am thinking about baseball.

You see I live in Boston and for us Bostonians there is a thing called Red Sox Nation and for me from the month of April until October I can think of nothing better than watching the Sox play. Luckily I love the sport which offers the most in games. Hey these guys play 160 plus games per year. I really love it when they win but I love the game even more and so even if the boys lose I really don’t care. Baseball it is just the best game. The national pastime. That which keeps us young.

Oh yes I was talking about ventriloquist figures I wonder if I will get a call today from someone who has a figure for sale or for donation.

Boy it would be great if it was a Marshall. I wonder if the paint will be all original and if it will have multy functions. Will it come with great provenance from the original owner? Oh my ventriloquist figures…….baseball…….oh……

    I’m hoping someone will give me a Marshall for my birthday. But, of course, I also continue to hope that I will wake up one morning able to fly like Superman, so…
