A Child's Life At Movie Snap At Libertad Baybay

Movie Snap At Libertad Baybay. Pen and ink work in progress on 17"x14" Paris paper.

In the foreground, four little girls wearing dark dresses play "Bagul" a motor coordination game using "tsinelas" or rubber slippers as props. Such was life at Movie Snap At Libertad Baybay in the 1960's. It is incredible what memories are stirred with this drawing. My Facebook friends, most of whom are friends from my childhood are reminiscing and recalling details of games and scenes. What wonderful memories. The above scene was especially requested by my sister Lynette, now a doctor and her childhood friend, playmate and classmate Marsette, now a school district superintendent.

Bonjour ma chère Ces,

Un superbe dessin... Je ne connais pas ce jeu. Mais dès qu'on parle de jouer, je suis partante !!
Tu es incroyable comme tes oeuvres.

Gros bisous ♡
