Sitting out back tonight. You can hear the usual sounds, leaves in the breeze, birds chirping, crickets chirping and little boys yelling.
Two of the neighbor boys (B & G both about 4-5 years) are playing at our end of the field. it's been a long time since either of us have had little ones to run around but, to me, its a nice sound.
B's father just yelled asking wht they were up to the reply ws "Looking for animals". What will they find a stray cat, a snake, rabbits or a groundhog? Most likely they will find a stray cat or two, the old tire, the wooden pallet or the pieces of concrete that are hidden in the tall grass.
Regardless I'll sit here and enjoy their sounds of play and happiness.
