I remember pisha paysha very well, and I taught it to my daughter when she
was old enough to begin to learn the hand/finger coordination. It was
probably taught to my mother by her mother. They came >from eastern galicia
also. My grandmother was born in Buchach, and then grew up in Podhajce. My
mother was born in Sloweta. My father also knew the game, so it may have
come to my >from my Litvak ancestors of Mahalin and Smolensk.
