They never had their marbles

I can stand on the brick patio Dad laid down in the 1980s and show you right where we boys shot marbles. There in the 1950s, long before the bricks came along, we'd scratch a circle into the ground, fill it with marbles, and shoot 'em out. We didn't complicate things with fancy words. We just threw our marbles into the ring and took turns shooting. If a buddy knocked your marble out, it was his. We played for keeps.
