Page 50, Childhood in Cheshire

Back in Cheshire we kids had so much fun.  We could stay our after dark and play Hide and Seek, Red Light, tramp for miles through the woods picking flowers for May Day baskets, play Hop-Scotch, Jacks – and with a large ball play a game that you had to do certain things with the ball while singing certain rhymes.  Of course “Cops and Robbers” – everything so good and innocent compared to today.
