Ah the magic of summer, after dinner when it was still light and you didn't wander off with your pals but kids of all ages stayed around the area and played big games like rounders (ours was with a tennis racket) , a truly magical time
How timely, Mags. Suzy's wee lass is on a softball team. I went to one of their practices last Saturday and here I am telling Suzy that they are playing Rounders. Softball is baseball with a soft ball but the rules are the same. Those long summer nights to play Rounders with the whole length of Ardoch Steet and no cars or the coalman's horse to get in the way. Nae uniforms and the bat was anything handy.
