Aunt Jeannette Still in Kyoto

It Fit Right Here!

We spent another day with Aunt Jeannette, this time partially at home. She brought a Thomas lunch box and puzzle for Anthony, and helped him do it. It was slow going at first, but they built up steam as he got hooked.

We also took the time to push my scooter out front and pose for a few pictures....

The best part of the day was a lunch in Kibune, which I'll write about another time. It was a really fantastic experience.

Aunt Jeannette is here on a tour run by Alumni Holidays, with others from all around The States. The tours are apparently arranged well, because most people in the group have been on other tours run by the same company, elsewhere in the world. (For her part, Aunt Jeannette is on her 8th tour with this group.)

Anyway, this morning when I met up with Aunt Jeannette, I chatted with another member of her tour, Madeline, and promised to post a shot of her I took in the gardens of the Heian Shrine the other day. Here it is:

I don't know how many tours she's been on, but potentially many: she's 88 years young! One of her granddaughters has a son Anthony's age.

Hey, Don’t you know what Emergency Room nurses call motorcycle and scooter riders who ride without helmets? They’re called “Organ Donors” Despite daring fate, looked like you were having a grand time with your “Extreme Scootering”. BTW, Fumie looks TERRIFIC! And Anthony always seems never to have met a stranger. So glad you could all get together. Mike and the others in the Games, Cards and Brew Crew Tour arrive in Ohio tomorrow and take in the Indians game inthe P.M. Wonder if any are getting any sleep?

Your mum is right, your wife looks terrific.
