I have a bag of those, about 100, bought at a thrift store for a buck. I give em to the kids who treat me like the pied piper. It's better than giving 'em quarters.

Neat idea, wonder if they think you dug them out of the ground

Iíve dug a few volleyball courts in Huntington Beach and the sand was just too deep and unproductive and way too much work. It had me going around in squares.

......I get it, a funny play on words instead of saying "going around in circles"

(but technically maybe it should be "going around in rectangles" )
