    I played in a marble tournament once...

    a long time ago when I was just a youngster. I think the other kid schooled me if I recall. I wonder who's marbles I was using though? I dont have any from the past. I have a vivid memory of playing marbles with a bunch of other kids at this place in town once. Just thought that I would share that awesome story with you all.

    I remember playing marbles in Albuquerque NM back in the early 1960's. We had leather bags but I don't remember what type. (I also remember collecting wheat pennies, and then hitting the candy store to spend them.:D :D Some of those are worth $$$$ now.)

    Most marbles went into the wrist-rocket shooting at birds and squirrels. The other thing we did with them was to put them in an old steel sprinkler-head with a firecracker and use it as a gun. Serious damage, would blow out a window, no problem.

    Such is childhood...
    Still learning the game... :help2: :help2:
