For Cal:

Cal reminded me of lawn darts (a.k.a. "Jarts"). My grandparents had a set (the same issue as the green box above), although I have to 'fess up that I was really bad at it. Back then we had no idea how dangerous these things were. No clue you could get hurt, no one thought about that stuff. That was what was so great about back then, life seemed less dangerous, and less complicated.

We loved Jarts and we still play them in the summer! What's more fun than throwing something pointy and deadly at your little brother? :)

My grandparents had a set of these... my cousin (who is three years older than I) and I used to see who could throw them the farthest. I don't remember the adults ever worrying about us playing with them. I have seen the newer version of jarts and they are plastic...took all the fun out of them!
