You are the prettiest, green shells. Mei-Shun always enjoy seeing them come out of “buds” rolled tightly together. They soon spread crossed sleeves to reach toward the sky, start yearly cycle until falling on the ground in yellow. Our backyard tree still holds little babies, already grew into school children in Osaka and going kindergarten with willow friends at 乙戸沼.
Thank you so much, Professor S. Mei-Shun received a lovely orchid from that intelligent, yet soft-touch lady on Saturday. It was almost the same day when she kindly came to see the ex-inpatient at hospital 4 years before with a bouquet of colorful sweet peas. And it was also the brilliant timing when Ms. Yellow Card woke up from one-year nap to bloom again.
So Mei-Shun had her lunar birthday yesterday. She is quite satisfied with success in bringing the gift from Shin longevity; dried via “parasols”, salmon pink and orange color in 35 fresh roses almost kept. Or stronger yellow shade from nearby princesses, making them more chic. However, she is too careless to pass by safely. Please let her say sorry and pick up petals still giving sweet scent.
Not means you, lovely horsey girl, but the 13th of Princess Cymby. Mei-Shun likes this number because of her birthday perhaps. And it seems every 13 years make something important in her life. She wishes it to be better and better, yet knows well that it is she who makes it with kind help from good family and friends. So please do not hurry, Your Highness, just go ahead as you like.
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?
Great to see you again, Your Highness. Your advent is to celebrate Christmas with Shin and Mei-Shun, isn’t it? Since divided your tangled roots, she thought you would take a few more years to bloom. You kindly encouraged her to recover from the disease she had approx. 4 years before. Health and prosperity is sincerely wished for yourself of course, and may our days be merry and bright.
One week has passed since artificial, removable Ame-chan arrived in Mei-Shun’s mouth. She works quite well, helps her owner masticate anything: sticky foods like baguettes (baked yesterday) and rice cakes are tasty for the latter, yet dangerous enough to require heavy chewing. Only one fault of the former is that foods easily come into a narrow space between a soft denture base and natural molars.
