Seniors Have The Yard / Youth Yields

Not much brings the games inside Sibe Quentin to a halt, but when the seniors claim the yard, the junior team pauses in respect.

Boom Boom holds the bounces for a few minutes.

The senior team enjoys the peace and quiet of their half of the yard and their private porch. Because of the fence configuration, they can go into the yard without worrying about the youngsters plowing into them. Despite the separation, Miss Kiska often yells at the juniors that they are making too much noise or running too fast or otherwise disturbing her. So when the seniors drift off the porch and into the yard, the juniors tend to hold down the noise for a few minutes.

Seniors? Where? I still think I am a puppy.

You might wonder if Kiska feels bad about squelching the games of youth. Her reaction?

My yard. My rules.

My yard. My rules.
