    Default Simple Pleasures!

    Found these cards,with no info' on them,so I can't say which area,town or city,they are from,but good examples of the day's when "playing out" meant using your imagination,and little else!(no x-boxes then!)

    The sailing the boat in the puddle is priceless. Thanks

    OK, someone should recognize the location of pic #3 - there can't be many walls at a sharp corner looking like that in Liverpool...

    Simple pleasures exactly.

    Off ground tick, british bulldogs, hopscotch, two ball, gutters (kerbies), allalio, skipping, hide n' seek, nearest the wall (with coins), bursting tar bubbles (especially 1976), s.p.o.t. & 60 seconds (football games) - (the older posters will remember a lot more that phased out before we were kids no doubt) A mixture of things to do for both girls and boys there.

    Not only was it exercise but it was problem solving and face to face interaction and meeting new friends. How many only do this down a computer line these days.

    It looks really like Grafton Street !, I used to sail my "bath boats" in puddles too
