Virgo - Olongapo Liberty
(You Tube) Some great liberty back in the day. A
great trick was tossing coins to the kids in the river and they would
dive to get the coins ($). Also threw coins to the lady(ed.) in the
wedding dress/ kimino in the canoe. Get her leaning far enough to fall
into the river...Stinky river, great times long ago.
