the older tanks would roar with the utmostimportance, referring to the big house where all of them lived.Three hundred other massive, all grown-up tanks (his older brothers)nestled together under one enormous, metal roof. All of them hadparticipated in the most realistic war games on numerous occasionsand the roaring of their powerful engines and clattering of their irontreads could be heard throughout the military proving ground.This was a special name for a training area where tanks wouldpractice, develop and perfect their many battle skills.Little Tanky could only dream of such a life.

Even thismorning, I pictured what having a digital voice recorder would be like
I want my own digital recorder I said to myself. I was just dying tohave one! I have so many great thoughts in my head (some smartones by the way) that I need to write them down somewhere!
