Stage Snap

Standard

Amazing 13 years and a half have passed since Mei-Shun saw her beloved father depart. His younger daughter asked for a photo used at a hall. She recently found its frame got yellowish, changed from original silver. A new stand shaped like a pine cone was therefore purchased. Then she ordered a trial copy by her own picture, at a shop on the same floor with the place of みたらしちゃん.

Merry Music

Standard

Thanks a million, Shin, for looking for and purchasing CDs featuring Ms. Sarah Vaughan, one of the greatest jazz singers. Mei-Shun heard her glamorous husky voice for the first time on Mr. Diamond, a car in dark blue given by her beloved father. Tape collection of him including classical piano pieces also descended to his younger daughter, confirmed with stronger media.

Slack Spot

Standard

What on the gas stove happened to you, Ms. Iron? When one of burners sounded that hot water was ready in you this morning, Mei-Shun put on an oven mitt as usual. Feeling something weird, she took it off to find a part melted — instead of burned. You seem to drip from shut between spout and body, honey. Please let her say thanks and good-bye.

Met Memory

Standard

Shin and Mei-Shun drove to Shinjuku on weekend to visit nice 2 places; one is 玄海, a restaurant serving 水炊き=simmered chicken pot, while the other Swarovski, one of favorite accessory shops for the couple. Beloved father of the wife liked above dish familiar to his hometown. And she decided to keep Dora-chan, newly named on Ms. Piano, as he is right now.

Abrupt Adios

Standard

Oh, Ame-chan, it is really deplorable for Mei-Shun to say so. You suddenly dropped from her mouth on weekend, while using a tooth brush. She had made an appointment to see Dr. M, her home dentist next week, yet was forced to change it into today. With a glance at an X-ray image, the latter lady said that you were over. Thanks and sorry, darling. Now you start a new life in a tiny drawer.

Fine Finding

Standard

Thanks a million, Professor M. His rights on above image all reserved, 2022. He asked  Mei-Shun the other day if her kabuki dance lesson would soon resume. Well, it might take a bit more time since that “novel” coronavirus is currently swirling among us in recent variant. Such an experience is not agreeable, yet gave her a chance to recognize how excellent beloved Master Mei-Shu was.

Great Grapes: 2

Standard

Here is 紅環=beni-tamaki, whose pretty looking and sweetness moved Mei-Shun so much — delicacies come not only from kitchens but farmland. She is a fruit lover like her beloved father, while sweets are quite liked by mother’s side as well. Why does she continue to talk about dessert? It is because she deserves it tonight by labor indoors and dance outdoors.

Artistic Autumn

Standard

菊廼舎=Kikunoya kindly sent a seasonal brochure to Mei-Shun the other day. 冨貴寄=fuki-yose, their main and the best product reminds her of stages she performed so far — and shop name is similar to the party she belonged to. Master Mei-Shu, your last 名取 refrains from lessons these days. However, she never forget respect and thankfulness to you while love to dance.

Edible Egg

Standard

This August starts from Monday. Yes, Mei-Shun is ready to spend well the hottest month of the year. And happy birthday, mom. She went to cool 草津 from the middle of last month, plans to stay there until September. It is her custom since beloved dad departed 13 years before, so their two daughters have to congratulate her indirectly via phone or e-mail.

Cool Color

Standard

This yukata or summer kimono is from mom-in-law. Since a bit small in size, Mei-Shun used it as an underwear for longer one to practice 恋の手習い. Washed over and over, it has become soft enough to change into a bathrobe. It often reminds her of Master Mei-Shu who also gave her last 名取 many including one the latter praised when the former lady put it on.
