Closed for Today

Standard

Shin and Mei-Shun went to いしじま, a peanut shop while serves you nice soba for lunch yesterday. However, it was closed — oh, oh, they should have known it. All such  restaurants through the Japanese Archipelago would prepare for the last day of the year. Yes, she reserves tasty one in the freezer of course. And thanks a lot, mom-in-law for frying shrimps and onion tempura.

Ms. I and Mr. Vanilla Arc, thank you so much for helping Mei-Shun to win the important certificate of riding technique. Princess Maria, here is a bit belated (sorry) Christmas gift for you, a new forehead band. Mr. Tea Time, it was one of her best 2018 events to see you. And lovely Ms. Last One, you are really the last horsey of this year who teaches her good communication with you.

Mei-Shun finished to learn how to dance 乱拍子の段, instrument-only part of 京鹿子娘道成寺. It was very slow compared to her previous pace to dance at least two scores an year. Well, Shin might mean to encourage his wife to perform on a stage again by giving her not an arrangement but a bouquet. He always handed her such a gorgeous beauty, surprised friends in Kikunoe Ryu’s waiting room.

Purr, it is so nice to brush myself up in morning light. Hmm, butter is on those sandwiches baked in mom’s Bow-Loo. They are put on the table from minutes before, cooled for me maybe. Lick, lick, it is not bad. Meow, why do you hold me down onto the floor, mom? You would be lucky today with my kiss, as daddy told you. He is cautious enough to understand my intention immediately.

Shin and Mei-Shun share their 24th wedding anniversary today. Looking forward to adding silver on the top of it next year maybe, the husband gave a cool necklace to the wife as his first gift. And this “rouge pink” bouquet followed around tea time. Oh, she always does not know how to express her gratitude, love and bewildering toward such … generosity? Could you please tell mom the best word, Mikan-chan?

We have the last of Emperor’s Birthday yesterday: our current emperor Akihito is set to abdicate next year. So would December 23rd be Heisei Day, like Showa Day (April 29th) was changed from the previous emperor Hirohito’s birthday? Anyway, that is why we share Christmas Eve and a happy Monday today. Shall we eat out like many young couples do, or stay at home, Shin?

Here is Thai-matsuri, retired racehorsey who has joined our club recently. Mei-Shun fell in love with such a lovely boy in black-brown, decided immediately to help Ms. I to train him as she did for Madoka-chan before. He was born in 2011 from the famous grandfather Brian’s Time while father Time Paradox. She therefore wants to give him a new name Tea Time, after these great fathers.
