'Game Board' at THE THREE MUSES


LOTO game (bingo for Anglophone, I think).

When I was very very young, sometimes, at my grand mother's village, everybody went to the 'Salle des fêtes' to play loto. Each one wishing to win the jackpot, usually a 'filet garni', a net full of terrines, candies, poultries, ham, wine and other food...
As my grand parents were poor, we played with dry corn or beans over the numbers.
My grand mother was used to winning very often.
It's one of my very first memories.

    Loto one of my earliest memories, too, my great-aunt supplied the game and the little prizes on a cold English Christmas Day after an enormous dinner!
