On the farm where I grew up, there was a unique structure. In the front of the house near the road a 3-foot bank framed the driveway on both sides. On one side the entire bank was covered with a deck measuring 8 feet by 20 feet. For years prior to our buying the place, the local monument shop a quarter of a mile away had rented this deck to unload and temporarily store their grave markers. When we moved in, Dad discontinued the arrangement, creating a spot for us to play.
