EDM # 6 Draw a Toy. . .
I can remember many a summer day or evening, setting up the wickets and getting the croquet set out, for a rousing game with the kids in the neighborhood.
I grew up in the 50's so there was no being inside in the summer, it was too hot in there and there was nothing to do anyway. Our days and nights consisted of building treehouses, wading up and down the creekbed exploring, swinging from grapevines, playing on our bikes and in the evening 'Kick the can" and one of my favorite Croquet.
We had some pretty cut throat games at times, knocking each others balls out of contention, trying different tricks, whatever.
I know childhood is different now, just as my two twenty-something sons lives were different. There is just no replacing though, those wonderful childhood memories, whatever they may be.
I was so very very fortunate to have had that childhood. My heart aches for those who didn't or don't.
