I went halfway across the world

I went halfway across the world but was always home for supper. There was a large dirt hill that expanded across several apartment buildings. It was one of my favorite places to play, trying to climb that hill and get to whatever destination my six year old brain could muster up. I spent entire days out on that hill, playing with friends or by myself. If I wasn't doing that I was swimming or climbing trees in the neighborhood. The apartment complex is still there but the hill was destroyed years ago to make room for a housing development behind it. I imagine the hill was man made as no grass grew within the hill but it was very very large. Oh and it was red dirt or clay if I remember correctly

My whole back yard is made out red dirt clay and, we have hills I used to always play on too, every thing was an adventure and, new as a kid. Trees to climb too of course, al though I wouldn't go higher than about 6 feet lol.

Yes many many a day. Of course my mom didn't seem to mind much. I guess I was able to get away with it because my ddad worked construction so it's not like dirt and grimey clothes weren't par for the course.
