Let me just say that Anna and I had a wonderful Christmas! Two items that Anna got me for Christmas were superb. I mean, all of my presents were fantastic but these two items were simply perfect and I adore them. I will first mention the “Homicide:Life on the Streets” box set. Yes! Every episode to include the final movie on 35 DVD’s. I often think that I should have stayed in Baltimore during the years that Homicide was shooting just so that I could have gotten a shot on being on the show. Actually, going to New York was the right idea. I will tell you this though; when I lived in NY, watching, “Homicide” was a great way for me to scratch my Baltimore itch.
The other thing is pretty rare. I’ve never seen another in all my 44 years but a few months ago, Anna and I were in Ellicott City and stumbled across this purple Baltimore Orioles pennant. Apparently, according to the sports memorabilia expert in the antique store, it’s from 1954-1955; more than likely created by an independent manufacturer in the days before Major League Baseball was in charge of every aspect of development and marketing. Anna realized how much I fancied it and got it for me and found a pennant frame online and she painted it to be more aesthetically appealing.Festive, right!?
I hope everyone had a great holiday season and got and gave some great stuff.
