THE WALSH COUNTY PRESS WEDNESDAY, MAY 17, 2017 Page 9 was anybody came to school with a few marbles. The game was marbles before school, at noon re- cess, and after school. We didn't play marbles the tra- ditional way. Instead of flickifig them with your thumb into a pile to see how many you could knock out of a circle, we threw them one at a time; like you'd throw a dart, and if you hit your opponent's mar- ble, you captured it and it was yours for keeps. The ordinary marbles were the smaller cat eyes. These were not very precious and anyone would play you for those. But the Peeries, the clear ones, the.y were the most valued and more precious than the once a week glass of chocolate milk in the cafeteria. And if those Peeries were bigger than the normal sized ones -- the ones we called "boul- ders." Well, if you had a Peerie Boulder or two, you were the man! I don't remember actually buy- ing.marbles, but I do remember my collection -- safely stored in a small, dark brown, leather pouch with a rawhide drawstring. To be carrying one of those pouches around was the coolest thing ever! Over time marbles gave way to other games and all my precious little round pieces of glass disap- peared somewhere. Today, they are probably buried deep in the city landfill waiting to be discovered a thousand years from now by some treasure hunter. I hope to them they are precious gems and worth mil- lions (Hang oh to yours Clara!), but only time will tell. But what is nice about these two comeback games is that for once, even if it's just for a few months, kids actually have something in their hands that doesn't tall, text, or send photos to them. It's nice to see kids actually playing with a game that is not electronically driven. This Friday the fourth grade class will get a day off school to go fishing. They will be holding a rod and reel in one hand and hooking up worms and leeches with the other. They will experience a feeling no smart phone can provide. The feeling of a fish that doesn't want to be a part of this experience, fighting like crazy to get away. So add a third thing to do instead of using a device. As for me, my marble and Ru- bik's Cube days are long gone, but fishing remains. Since I don't own a cell phone yet, I guess fishing is not a bad way to spend an afternoon. By Kevin Skavhaug of The Press PARK RIVER, N.D. -- The Park River/Fordville-Lankin Aggie baseball team won a big region game here last Tues- day as they defeated Midway Minto 14-1.
