Sorry, Weemags, ah apparently didny hive permission to reply to yer posting aboot beds,so ah jist started anither wan. Ah'm no trying tae hijack yours. I wis really tickeld by your post aboot beds, especially since ma wee neice wis jist here fae Scotland, and, aye, they still play beds, but they call it hopscotch. The grids are aw drawn oot on the playgrun fur them, so they don't hiv tae swipe a bit o their ma's white clay any mair. ( no that her mammie eve saw a pit of pipeclay in her life, no like us aulder yins that hid tae wash the stairs and whiten them!)

While she wis here, ah bought her some chalks, but naebiddy could remember how the beds looked. (wish you were here!). It wis only when we actually started to hop the wey we used tae (bit 100lbs heavier) that the image of the grid came back intae oor minds. We'd furgote aboot the half-moon shape at the top. There wis another grid wi 4 corner boxes and a big cross in the middle, wisn't there?

Sometimes we'd use a wee block o marble fur oor peevers. Somebiddy's daddy must've worked in a quarry or monument makers, because there were a few aroon then. Bit the best wan, like ye said, wis a polish tin filled wi gravel or sand and worn aw smooth wi the sliding. It wid get so worn, the wee snib thingie wid faw off.

Och ah'm away oot tae hop on the tar. Hope ma neigbhurs don't send fur the men in the wite coats fur me.

Weemags, ye jist took me back 50 years. Thanks.

Well, I have been told that I am old by my dear cousin who today is now 2yrs older than myself. So I need know if "Peever" is the same as "Hopscotch" now don't all yell at me at the same time.

Yesterday I was reading the BBC on line and they showed a old photo of a bunch of kids playing Hopscotch now it been a looooooooooong time since I played and I am sure I broke, fell skint my legs more than once. Alaysha was sitting next to me and she asked me granma will you teach me how to do that.? Now for the life of me I can't remember how so how about some help here, just in case any one has yestedays copy I would love it if somebody could send me the link again .
Thanks

Lennox, if ah remember rightly (from when ah played yesterday..laugh.gif)..this was the layout...
Attached Image


Ye try to slide the peever to each number in turn, ye must get it in the box, then ye hop through all the numbers and ye have to hop over the box with the peever in...where the double boxes are, ie 4-5 and 7-8, yer allowed to put one foot in each box, but that's the only time ye can have two feet on the grid....clear as mud as usual intit....biggrin.gif

Thats it Java , been trying to remember the layout played this at primary school , drew the board in the red blaze by dragging our heels through it.Sometimes the board would be there for ages and it was yours then someone else would come along rub out yours and draw a bigger one on top and say it was theirs, many playground battles were fought over a hopscotch board laugh.gif

Add me to that, it was usually a Kiwi shoe polish tin, and for some reason black polish comes to mind. (no idea why, unless it was something to do with the fact that most men's good shoes or boots were black?)
