The Old Lady and Warri. ....The African board game.

Two days ago was the 5th year my old lady passed away.
R.I.P. Mum.
On days like those you remember some things . One of these was her teaching my brothers and sisters to play Warri  , an African board game on some rainy days during the long summer vacation on the island.
We were also introduced to playing card games. one was solitaire. Which I still play on the computer to kill time or just be quiet.
I remember mum.

I have 4 pairs of psychedelic tights I bought wear  just to remember my mom. She used to wear them. They were of bright colors with bizarre designs. Monkeys in a rain forest, etc, etc,. She was a character, a brawling mad woman.  I got my "pinch of madness" from her. I look just like her. May their souls rest in peace.
