May & June – Brotherly Love

My brother Kanji and his wife Kazuko came to see me on 5/24/2019 for two weeks vacation.

Dear Kanji & Kazuko – Thank you:
I don’t have much of memory of him. Kanji is 7 years my junior, also I left home when I was 15 to enter a boarding High School.
However, we had a lot to talk about our childhood. Nostalgia, yes, that’s it. a sentimental longing for the past with happy personal associations.
He cut my big tree branch that growing over to the next door with a tiny saw. Also, money for four new tires to buy. He told me that I should make sure to check my brakes and tires.
Kazuko has strong “Compassionate heart” She always thinks and cares about/for other people. I had to tell her a hundred time to become “a little selfish” I know she is not going to change.

They brought the following gifts: (Kazuko-san Arigatou):

  • Their heart and thought in a jumbo-sized paper card with embroidered contents
  • Foods – She knows I don’t like to cook. She got bunch of ready-to-eat foods
  • Japanese style hand towels (I requested)
  • Noragi (Samurais and the cultural elite wore silk while farmers wore Noragi jackets)
  • Painkillers (Loxoprofen Sodium Tape 100 mg) for my back injury
  • Newspaper EXTRA (4/30/2019 Japanese emperor in two centuries to abdicate)
  • Presents for my Grandson

I was cranky in the evening due to my back. Kazuko-san, I am very sorry I was so irritable.

Just two weeks stay are not long enough, I wish they stayed at least three or four weeks. I Hope There’s a Next Time.
I love you both. Wish you a happy and healthy life ahead!
