We were on a mission.
In the dark, we crept over to the new house next door.
We had a flashlight and and nail.
We selected a corner. We scratched at the smooth surface. The year and the kid's names. Forever etched in the corner of grandpa's garage floor.
We had asked his permission, and he cheerfully said "Write Away!"
And we did it after dark only because that's when we were all home from work and school and activities... but still, it felt sneaky and exciting and fun!
