The Wall #7

Kids at play...look!...the two seated girls are playing Jacks! Remember that game, using pigs' knuckle bones? I witnessed Jacks being played by school girls in the Village school just a couple of weeks ago.

 

There are pet dogs and cats!

 

The Schoolyard favourite "...Chip, chop, the last man's head, Head, head … off!"

 

Who needed tablets or smartphones!

Ces enfants savent jouer simplement comme nous dans le temps.
Ray: Cette scène pourrait être de mon cours d'école australien, il y a environ 60 ans, Martine.

Such simple pleasures. The good old days when kids would interact physically with each other.
Ray: Yes...all such activities are now in sharp decline, Alan.

I sincerely hope the latter - tablets etc - won't kill all this history off..
Ray: I can feel that this way of life is in rapid decline, Chris...even in up-country Thailand.
I've still got a set somewhere I think....or did I give it to the last jumble sale?
Ray: In Australia the game was played mostly by girls, Bill.
I can remember playing both those games way back all those years ago.
Ray: It is the same for me, Brian...this panel is a favourite of mine.

Our kids know these games, too. Nice, peaceful scenes!
Ray: It seems these games are Universal, Philine.
Lovely - wonderful to see that some children's games are universal!
Ray: From my observation, Tom, still played in Thai up-country schoolyards.
Fine traditional games, long may they continue.
Ray: I hope this is so, Martin.
Who indeed?
Ray: Increasingly, though, Kids are being infected with the thumb-dancing disease, Larry...

Children's games much the same all over the world - but they are dying out here fast, Ray
Ray: Unfortunately, Lisl, I see a decline in interest in these wonderful activities in Thailand also, Lisl.
