Cathy - I seem to remember that the thing we used to throw and mark our spaces when playing hopscotch, I think we called a "tore" - not sure of the spelling since we never actually spelled it out. It's amazing that you brought it up - because I haven't thought about it since I was a little girl - kind of like the O'Leary game - and by the way, I just asked my 72 year old mother about the O'Leary game - played by girls - she said that she used to play it as a girl, too - back in Philadelphia, PA - must be an Irish thing - ha ha!
