We had this big, empty space where no houses were, there in the neighborhood. All the kids who lived out there would ride their bikes all over, and after a long time, dirt ‘trails’ were cut into the grass/weeds/ whatever was there. All the kids knew about the ‘trails’ so you could meet your friends at any time there. It was fun! … Plaques were those plaster of paris decorative figures we’d make in the molds. When dried, we’d paint them. 🙂
