saturday afternoons....cold winter nights....actually, anytime!

we never needed an excuse to play a game...

monopoly, the barbie game, yahtzee... scrabble, chutes and ladders, parcheesi...

how about bingo, twister, checkers...

and those were just the board games!...

all those hours spent trying to solve a puzzle or a rubik’s cube or playing pinball...


spud, and running bases, and duck duck goose?

red light-green light, pogo sticks and hula hoops?

stickball, stoopball, and hit the penny?

marbles, johnny-on-the-pony, and flipping baseball cards?

you went out to play in the morning and came back at dusk...

you chose up sides and settled your own fights...

you made up your own rules

and used garbage can covers as bases...

those were the days.
