… soon toward Mei-Shun’s upper left jaw. Yes, a kind of Christmas gift from Shin. She met Dr. M, her first home dentist today to replace late Ame-chan by an artificial one. Since they do not make it by themselves but just order, shape and size were measured with cold gum stuff, pressed onto the space where that milky girl lived before. Be brave, it never hurts. Simply takes 3 minutes keeping patient’s mouth open to dry.
It was set on today for younger Ame-chan treatment. Since Mei-Shun hurt her a bit more, another step must be added to put artificial tooth on the milky survivor. Dr. M, home dentist of the careless patient joined to discuss with Dr. N for the best method. “Fortunately, healthy gum grew enough to cover your basis bone”, they said. “So shall we plant here a tiny part made of glass fiber?”
Shin gave Mei-Shun a surprise gift: they went on one-night trip to 遠刈田温泉. They have several nice hot springs listed, while it is always exciting to visit another place for the first time. 3-hour drive was quite comfortable on a weekday, brought them at 竹泉荘 around 16 o’clock. The husband took a nap, the wife enjoyed wide public bath before tasty dinner.
Mom-in-law finally left the hospital. During her stay for 2 weeks, Mei-Shun visited there every day bringing a newspaper and a few report on house matters. What has come into the latter’s mind was that every family member has an important role at home. Here she happily bought a horsey halter in coffee color with a leader by gratuity from the generous ex-inpatient.
It looks like, doesn’t it? Shin helped Mei-Shun replace older shoji curtain by this one on weekend. Since it faces a lane where elementary school students pass by every morning, it must be kept neat. Sunlight from the west is so strong that it contributes to prompt obsolescence of the paper item. Oh, abrupt shower, please do not beat fruits with Mickey hiding among. Are you kind followers able to find him?
Professor M returned from South Africa on business, gave Mei-Shun a fine souvenir; a box of rooibos tea, Shin’s favorite. He takes as much as 2 bottles of 2 liters a day in summer, makes his wife to boil it in a designated kettle three times every hot day. Now fragrant olive began to give nice scent, a messenger to inform us on advent of the comfortable season.
Here is new phone, called Mr. Chocolate by Shin and Mei-Shun. Advanced technology is seen on such a nostalgic machine as well, looks quite convenient. Happiness is sometimes accompanied by sorrow: butterfly babies have gone. Both of them were clever enough to move to another pot, yet might become easy for their predators including birds, bats or dragon flies.
