Shall we play a game?

And not any having to do with war.  One upon a time I was quite the jacks player.  My eye hand coordination was on point back when parents had to tell us to come from outside and not the other way round.

Jacks, jump rope, roller skates, bicycles, marbles, cap guns (I was a tomboy and I had a set) swinging in swings and bolo bats; the toys and games of my childhood.  Then the jacks were metal and the little rubber ball was just a little red rubber ball.

    I remember well that game of Jacks. The “jack” was just a small metal piece. They were not colored back then. Only the red ball. Played that game many times in the school yard on recess. I would assume that a good portion of the younger generation does not even know of this game from our past.
