DirT! my favorite childhood toy (besides legos!)

Making an imaginary island out of a random selection of dirt with the neighbor kid, getting out our creek inner tubes, plopping them down in the dirt and scooting ourselves over to the other imaginary dirt island. Gauranteed to make you dirty and get your butt grass stained! One of the many strange imaginary games I remember.

Once while helping my brother make this remote control truck race track, i accidentally picked up a snake. It was a black snake with pink belly. It fit perfectly in my hand and didn't move. I can still smell the dirt.
