Memory Lane: Tetherball

You don’t have to be human to enjoy a game of tetherball. See? Even dogs can play it.

Tetherball was one of the fun things we had on the playground in the summer, way back when. I couldn’t find any video of the kind of tetherball we had–small ball on a cord, and you hit it with paddles. Now they’ve made it more like volleyball.

One thing about growing up next to a playground–there was always something to play. Tetherball, horseshoes, shuffleboard, volleyball, badminton, swings, merry-go-round, sliding board–uh-oh: no electronics! You actually had to get up off the couch to play these games.

I do miss them!
