Subject: RE: Sheepcrook & Black Dog
Shimrod is right about "budget."

According to my dictionary, the oldest use is "a pouch or wallet, usually of leather."

It goes all the way back to the Latin "bulga," but the Latin speakers had borrowed "bulga" from a Gaulish word. An ancient word, indeed.

I like the song. Thanks for posting.
