Stop Sobbing

Standard

Mei-Shun received the second shot against that novel coronavirus today. Actually, Ms. Scarlet was too powerless to ignite her engine yesterday, let Shin use a tool called jump-starter this morning. The wife drove him to the nearest station, kept la voiture rouge booming toward the inoculation site. Now it’s over, how are you feeling? … thanks a million to wake up coughing, darling.

Smile and Stroke

Standard

Meow, mom finally returned to normal. I feel good when she is good, bad when she is the same. That is why a macaron-shaped bed was made into a restroom. Last week was the worst: she fed me in the morning, cleaned up my cage and went to sleep with a door closed to shut me out. Similar lunch, supper, dinner and said goodnight. However, it’s all over. Please brush me more, purr.

Meow, today is my 18th birthday. And Respect-for-the-Aged Day this year, as the 3rd Monday from 2003 when I was born. Well, “aged” sound a bit weird to me who never get it, while count 88 years old exchanged into a human lady. That might mean mom’s habit of saying animals including my species are wiser than hers, purr. I’ll keep taking care of you, always have, always will.

Precious Paws

Standard

Shin and Mei-Shun feel happy these days to see Mikan-chan sleep in her shining silver coat. She began to look a bit shaky in right rear leg several months before, made above couple scared of the day which they wish never comes. However, thanks to energy jelly sticks, she is all different right now — her eyes stopped sobbing, muscle grew up, etc. And oh, she quickly leaves a dining table when her mom returns from another room.

Autumn Arrival

Standard

Meow, really an amazing change of air. A new month starts, hotness has all gone. Still, humidity seemed to stay in the bedroom of dad and mom. She put a dome-shape bed in mine, worrying a bit if I make it a restroom. That was because it is too fluffy to use at summer night, while welcome when it becomes much cooler like this early morning. Thanks for your warm regards, mom.

Children’s Corner

Ms. Piano, thank you so much for always soothing Mei-Shun’s mind. You really are one of precious three featured herein. Mikan-chan, kabuki dance and you are her family of course, stay beside her even if she is closed indoors by recent thunderstorm, heat wave and evil disease. She resumed practice of “Golliwog’s Cake Walk” composed by Master Debussy for Shin who loves this score.

Baseball Boys

Standard

O-bon period of this year was a bit atypical. Heavy rainfall prevented Shin, mom-in-law and Mei-Shun from burning 麻幹=ogara as 迎え火=mukae-bi in 13th evening to welcome beloved dad-in-law. 送り火=okuri-bi, to say good-bye might be feasible tonight, yet it seems weird to do for them who did not say hello. On the other hand, cooler weather might be kind to those gather at 甲子園.

Dish Depends

Standard

Mom has recently added one more jelly stick on my menu, purr. A bit soon, yet is it a birthday gift to me? I’m Virgo, you are Capricorn. We fit well in mind, species does not matter. By the way, it is really hot and dry today. Above delicacy is therefore the best in daytime, while crisps are in cooler early morning or after dark. Meat stew is for breakfast and nightcap. Please keep their good balance.

Friend Found

Standard

Mom, who is this one? One of my species living around the nearest station, I see. Dad sometimes catches their nice shots like above, while she takes my photos almost every day. You received an “Yes” phone call from Dr. A, look delighted. So if the next appointment with her next January could see you inoculated, everyone of our family except for ME would be a bit safer.

Month Moves

Standard

This weekend was brilliant for Mei-Shun. Her last day of July, Saturday was spent with Princess Maria and Ms. Last One after nearly 2 months. Following August 1st, Sunday was birthday of her mother who stays in 草津 on vacation. Receiving a pleased reply to her younger daughter’s congratulations, the latter dined out with Shin and mom-in-law at a grilled-eel restaurant.
