Heisei Ends


Meow, the era I was born is going. Mom would see it change twice in her life; from Showa to Heisei as the first, to Reiwa this time. She might experience even the third, yet future is not ours to see. Her interest is rather on 銀杏餅=gingko cake, one of the best sweets from Toyama Prefecture, which is due by today. Another 玉天=baked meringue would keep on tasting good over Golden Week, she says. Purr …

Time to Relax


So it is the 3rd of our Golden Week serial holidays. Mei-Shun mainly stays at home while Shin on and off business, that depends. She heard that 60-70% adults would do the same as the wife during these 10 days. How many of those who mean to do similar to the husband are included in other 40-30%? Please take good care of yourselves, dear diligent workers.

Key items for healthy sleep

Oh, No,


Mei-Shun lost almost all of left detergent for a fluffy belt which Princess Maria, Mr. Silver Pure and other white horseies use. Since it is made of lambskin, special care is imperative to keep clean. She thought attached detergent is also from Poland, not easily available, so tried to save it as long as possible — yet let the bottle lie on its brochure. She wishes it would arrive safely soon from the U.S.A.

Full of Vitamin


Thank you so much, Shin. It’s really an extreme surprise and pleasure of your wife to receive such a pretty gift on a normal day. She loves flower shades including orange, salmon pink, yellow, white and pale green. Her butterfly-shaped orchid named in the last color has had 20 sisters, with poor one fallen by careless Mei-Shun who pressed a pillow toward the pot feeling sleepy.

Brave Beauty


It is you, pheasant boy. Mei-Shun walked to the nearest shrine between showers, heard him sing a love song. Looking around, and there he was — quite nearby a lane she stood.  Striding elegantly through dry rice paddy, he greeted a couple of wild duck. Then continued to go ahead, stopped at grassed low bank. Full of sunlight, he flapped several times and yes, sang.




They say Spanish tests would be held in June and October. Now, Ms. Piano, which month is better for Mei-Shun? She meant to be soaked in concentrated study, chose just one score composed by Master J. S. Bach. However, Shin likes it so much that his wife practiced it almost every day for “joy of his desiring”. Having come in the opposite direction, is she ready to go back to the starting point of 2019?

橘 at 橘寺, what’s your opinion?


Butler Service


He is ready at Satsuki Suite of a hotel in Osaka regular for Shin and Mei-Shun. If they order some items except for foods, he would put them into following space between a door and a closet. A little yellow light would be on among room phone buttons to inform guests that he served. However, he always appeared in person ringing the doorbell. What on earth do they mean??

Open this door,

and he serves.
