In Pirmasens our backyard was a junkyard. On weekends my sister and I had free run of the place. We would build forts in a warehouse full of shoe leather remnants, slide down a chute into a basement full of paper, and play in bins of metal scraps. We often found treasures, like WWI era money, to take home to our mom.
