dos mulas para la hermana sara

March 8, 2008

I am impressed. Just a few days ago I sent a letter to John “Mule” Miles and included a couple of his baseball cards from the ever-popular 2007 Topps Allen & Ginter set. Unable to choose between the base card and the mini, I sent them both and asked him to sign one if he had both the time and the inclination.

Mr. Miles responded in less time than I can manage to turn around a Netflix offering- and was nice enough to have autographed both cards. What a sport!


It leaves me with hope that as I get older, I might find ways to become more efficient with my time. Of course, I doubt my mailbox will be flooded with autograph requests when I’m 85.

I would like to find myself in a position to meet and chat with Mr. Miles. I suspect it would prove to be a riot. My favorite quote from him is, “I didn’t hit for percentage, I hit for distance.”

Atta boy! That’s what I like to read.
