The Best Time Was...

 

Me & Babs - As kids, we played lots of pick up sports games - street hockey, wiffle ball, touch football, basketball, etc.  But, we very often only had a half dozen of us around at any one time.  So, when it came to picking teams, the teams were small and very often unevenly divided. Billy Fish & Mike Babs were the oldest two boys in our crowd. And Mike Babs was by far the best athlete amongst all of us. Since Billy Fish was closest friends with Mike by age, his constant chorus was "Me & Babs" when it came to picking teams. With an odd number of boys, we'd have one goalie, an official catcher, an official quarterback, and so on. Or we'd play with uneven teams. Sometimes Billy Fish & Mike Babs would be the team against who ever else was there. Quite often, they'd win. When Billy Fish wasn't around, there was sure to be someone else shouting out that familiar phrase "Me & Babs". That was the best time!
