Delightful journal Jan! You invited me back in time. I smiled at the memories. Yes, the marbles are probably the same in Australia and the U.S. Just described differently. Mom patched the knees on my jeans. She was a good Mom. She never kept me from shooting marbles. We shot marbles in circles and squares. Ahhhh, the peaceful memories... We shot marbles in our bare feet. One guy use to shot a marble from between his big toe and the toe beside it. When shooting like that, he didn't win many games. But, he could hit other marbles. I remember, He was a good guy and would find just about anything funny... Thank you for writing this journal Jan. It was so good..
