Am I embarrassed to report that I spent 90% of my childhood and adolescent leisure-time in the 1950s and early 1960s racing coloured marbles down a slope. Lining them up, for example, behind a crib board on a supported boardgame board, then lifting up the crib board ,,, letting them GO!… and see which rolled furthest on the carpet.

Knock-out competitions.

Leagues.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * *  Endless hour after endless hour. I even named the marbles – split dark blue, thin red, big light blue, spot yellow… * * * * * * * * * * * * * * The Marbling Dreamcaught on the purple banner.  * * * * * * * * * * * * *

I had a story published by the acclaimed PALACE CORBIE in 1996 about it…  http://weirdmonger.blogspot.com/2007/03/piano-player-has-no-fingers-no-1.html
