Sketch: Four Bald-Headed Noisy Poker Players at the Library Reading Area
This afternoon I believe I could manage the walk to and from the local library with my sore legs, so I went there and checked out some new books. To my surprise, the chess and poker players, whom the library staff had kicked out of the reading area because people complained about the noise they made, were back in the reading area again. They played their games as they did before and were as rowdy, too. They were all Russian-speaking, newly immigrated from former republics of the Soviet Union. When I was done with my checkout, I did a quick sketch of the four of them at a table next to me.
