Boys will be boys

A stick and some dirt. What else could a boy ask for?

Hey, I am female and those were my favorite toys! I also liked adding water. (We had that when I was a kid.)

Sorry. Water was outlawed in the Great Drought of 'Ought Two'. Strictly verboten these days.

In other words, we've had water restrictions of one kind or another since around mid-2002 due to insufficient rainfall. Even things like Slip 'n' Slide (expensive plastic sheet which you run the hose on to make a fun slippery slide for the kiddies) and little kiddy/wading pools are actually banned from use a lot of the time.

Water is an interesting thing when you realise you don't quite have enough of it.
