Singin' in the Rain

We went for a drive in the mountains toward the Oono Dam (大野ダム), to enjoy a nice drive and to visit a bread shop Fumie had seen on TV. Sadly, the proprietor was rude and unfriendly which sort of put a damper on the whole thing, but we took our bread and stopped by a little spot nearby to sit in a gazebo and watch some seniors play croquet. Surrounded by rice fields, it was quite a pleasant spot.

It started raining just when we were arriving, so the seniors left, and at some point Anthony decided to go onto the croquet field and dance in the rain.

Afterwards, we enjoyed some lovely rainbows (although nothing on the order of the amazing rainbow we saw last week).

Are you sure you don’t mean croquet (People with big hammers knocking wooden balls through hoops) as opposed to cricket (batsman defends three sticks from nasty ball made of cork and leather, and scores “runs” by running to the other set of sticks and back)?

Croquet is definitely a seniors game, as youth and vigor probably don’t give much advantage, while in cricket the quick of eye and fleet of foot will definitely have the upper hand.

Er, yes, fixed, thanks. —Jeffrey

I was going to provide the same comment as before, except now that the spelling is bust.

Legions of sub-continent readers are shuddering at your ignorance of the “holy” game 😉
