Our neighborhood was full of baseball hopefuls and we had hundreds of games on a vacant lot by our house. Seeing there were houses near, and sometimes a ball broke a window, it was just taken for granted that the whole bunch of us chipped in and got that particular window fixed.
Skating was the winter sport that pleased me most. Oh, I loved it! Charlie and Eddie played hockey, lacrosse and volleyball. Mary swam best of us four, there was a pool near home and come summer, we lived in it. We got my Dad in a time or two.
