  • Grew up on our grandparents farms, so any kind of hide and seek or tag was the best. We played a lot of "house" kind of games too. Lots of imagination to go around when you have no tv and live back a back road.

  • We would get together a bunch of kids and play "Kick the Can". So much different back then, we would be outside from morning until night.

  • I was a city kid so there was not a lot of places to let imagination go wild. When all of the children in the neighborhood pooled their money, we would buy a Wiffle ball, which is a hollow plastic baseball with holes in it. Then one of us would swipe our Mom's broom or mop and cut off the handle to make a baseball bat. We used cars as bases and one curb to the curb across the street was our pitching mound to the batter. No need for an umpire because behind the batter was a huge brick building. If we hit the ball into one of the 'crazy' neighbors yard, then the game was over because none of us had the nerve to go get the ball. Then it would be a month or so before we could save up for another Wiffle ball. We tried to keep the bat so we would not be punished again for a missing broom or mop.
