My iPod Has Issues – Losing Bill Dance and Finding Eddie Feigner

24 Sep

We are having a garage sale, and everyone knows what that means. We are dragging out stuff that we forgot we had. Some of it is coming from the attic. Some of it is coming from our closets. Some of it is coming from the Land of Discarded Items.

In the process, I am giving up the autographed Bill Dance t-shirt that I got when the famed fisherman made an appearance at the Hollywood Casino in Tunica, Mississippi. It is definitely a sacrifice to give up something that cool.

However, some cool things are staying. While digging for artifacts, I came across a booklet celebrating the 25th Anniversary of The King and His Court. If that name does not mean anything to you, then let me explain. Eddie Feigner was a fast pitch softball pitcher who traveled the world with a four-man team. They took on all comers and won over 9,000 games. Along the way, Eddie “The King”  Feigner did tricks with the ball. There are a few people around here who played against them. I need to collect stories and write a post about them.

Anyway, we have dragged a bunch of stuff into the garage and are ready to do business. Hopefully, we will make some money. Every quarter counts.image-2

    I believe you have just redefined eclectic. We are too rural for a garage sale, but we’ve done flea market. It was fun. Not wildly profitable, though.

      We have a local flea market, but I haven’t been in years. I wonder if they have some good stuff to replace what we’re selling.

        That is the entire point of flea markets. Swapping your old junk for exciting new junk.

    Oh, those garage sales, the last 2 weekends I had one. Will have another one in a couple of months, where does this stuff come from? 🙂

      I don’t know, but it adds up. You must have collected a lot to have 2 weekend sale.

        Lots of stuff, did not sell all of it, the rest is in the garage waiting for the next garage sale in a couple of months.
