Sometimes it reminds us of when we were in a worse situation. Sometimes it reminds us of when things were better. And sometimes it just makes you feel old!

Remember when were overstocked with middle infielders? Starlin Castro? Gleyber Torres? (to name a few). Those were good times.

Remember when we had to live through the Sam Zell and Jim Hendry eras? Those were bad (VERY bad) times.

Remember when we got to listen to Ron Santo declaring "this is the year!!!"? Those were good times.

Remember when the sign on the building outside the right field wall said AC0770107? This were bad times.

Remember the start of the 2017 season when the sign read AC0000000? That was a good time (a VERY good time!)

And oh yeah - one more bit of special Cubby Blue nostalgia...

Remember when the publication Vine Line was the best source Cubs news, information AND had the BEST editorial cartoonist in residence?

That was VERY good time!

I remember...

Can't remember when I quit doing those illustrations.
What year was that anyway?
I love your yoyo list, Bud.
Up down, good bad...
