kids' games

When I was a little kid, I would make little towns, or islands out of sand or gravel piles in the backyard. I would work kind of hard to make them into islands. I would use the hose to shape the area.

One of the things I liked to do was make jails.And on my islands, I would imagine that every offense would land the offender in jail. It was so punitive that in this fantasy there were no people in the jails because it was understood that any wrongdoing sent you there.

I would also scoot Matchbox and Hot Wheels cars around the towns, which was fun.
