First of the year (for me anyway): Rummage Sales

Billings does have good rummage sales, as I was told. I kept my spending in check though and didn't come away with anything out of the ordinary. I did get a stand for my TV ($2) which was previously on a box... and a set (more or less) of dishes to fill my mostly empty cupboards (includes the plates on the rack by the sink). Since many of the cupboards are up high, I don't want to fill them anyway. It's too hard to get stuff out of them. I also got some clay pots - but at a gardening center: I'll show you what I'm going to do with those pots after I do it. And this last is especially to tease Jim, as I'm sure he doesn't have one of these: a minor league ball field. It is one half block from our place.

It's called Dehler Park, but it's known locally as Cobb Field which it was for many years until they tore it down and built the brand new park.


Last year was the first year that the Billings Mustangs played in it - and I heard that they "stunk up the field." Maybe they'll be better this year. Last week from my driveway I clearly heard the sound of an aluminum bat hitting a ball. It was a legion game or Babe Ruth league - which also uses the park as the Mustangs don't start until June 21. I wonder if I'll be able to smell the hot dogs and hear the 7th inning stretch? I'm ready - I packed my scorebook.

Looks like you had a good rummage. Jeni had luck on ours; I will post pictures tomorrow. I didn't find a thing. Probably good since I do have to pack and move rather a lot of stuff.
