Lived near the woods, lake and gravel pit. We made at least three new forts every year. Some on the ground, in the trees, or even under ground. Would be in the gravel pit riding bikes, then cars up and down the roads, into small ponds and mud holes. We also had a big hill, but it was gravel. Took a header one time thought I was going to die on the way down. But small bodies are tough. Would go under the docks and take young pigeons out to raise at home. Things were so simple then, be with your buddies, raise as much hell as you could.

Wow, 40 marbles at one time. I am jealous. We might get ten and a shooter. I know they all had names, but cats eyes are the only ones I remember.

Two Camps, woven from willow branches. One Indians the other Cowboys. A Disused waste water tube outside one.
Hiding from the female Zitty Sa. The cowboys crawled up the tube, only to find it blocked up.
To this day and the advent of www. 1991.
Un Zitty Su. Takes great pleasure in familiarising the world.
That 4 very wet and somewhat scared 12yo cowboys, Unable to turn in the tube.
Crawling out Backwards with there pants covering their ears. Was not a pretty sight. :ohmy: :blush:

I grew up in a pit village. I remember a large boulder on a piece of waste ground that was our gang headquarters. We had meetings round the boulder, planned the pranks that we would play on the neighbours who spoiled our fun and ‘dobbed us’ to our mums for our misdeeds. We used the boulder as a table where shared our dandelion and burdock, crisps and cheese sandwiches. I’ve often wondered where boulders came from. My own children managed to find one for their gang meetings.

One of the many things that sticks out in my mind is splitting wood for the stove and going to the well to draw up a few pails of water for Mother as she was beginning to cook each meal.

Playing catch ball - then as we lived on a hill - the tennis ball would roll down the hill - until it got to the drain.
ours in the 1930s - were open drains so - someone had to retrieve the ball, I put my left arm down the drain - after seeing where it was - After fiddling about - i got the ball to the surface - holding it up - for my mates to
see - no though of running indoors - to wash your arm then. Drains maintained by a horse & cart -
The man put a long handled pole - with a scoop on the end - then when finished - he sprincled pink powder - all around the drain.

Your mention of a horse and cart made me think of the day the ‘rag and bone’ man’s horse dropped dead outside a neighbour’s house. When my mum found out what had happened I was quickly ushered indoors. I have no idea to this day how the horse was removed and taken away.

I remember as young boys, maybe 5 and 6, our uncle putting my brother and I on two of his horses to ride around the pasture...I fell off and my uncle came running over, dusted me off and put me right back on. I didn't realize it at the time, but that was the best lesson of my life.
