What games did the children play at that time?
You, when being boys, probably gathered together, and what games did you play?
Lapta, chizhik. How did we play? Several of us had skittles at that time. Then there were children parks, we came to play there.
What did children parks differ from?
There was billiards there; it was possible to plat it in turns or something else. Besides, I kept pigeons. And then my mother cut them heads off and I skipped school for a week, probably. We went somewhere to catch pigeons. She said that she would buy three chickens; they are just the same birds.
