Shinney




5"X7" Water-soluble pencil on paper



A simple version of hockey played by children on the streets (or on ice or on a field) using a ball or can as the puck (according to Worldwebonline). The name is derived from the Scottish game shinty and indeed shinny was a common name for one of shinty's many regional variations in Scotland (according to Wikipedia).

A sure sign of Spring anyway.
