Well, the town of Billings is growing with no end in sight.

Where I live in Lockwood is no different. It's not that I don't want people to progress, but I am going to miss the field by my house. It was a regular thing to see maybe 15 deer at any given time come across the field all year long.

Having a vacant field next to the house was kinda nice and quiet if you know what I mean.

Well, this is the new Ace Hardware is going up and the field is shrinking and the concrete is slowly creepin' right up to my back door.

Don't get me wrong, I like Ace Hardware. They always have someone in the store that can tell you how to fix whatever it is you're trying to fix. It will be nice having one so close.

But I am going to miss the empty field!
