Roppongi is like a bad drug

Roppongi is like a bad drug! Yes, I said it! No matter how much I try to avoid that place, I always seem to end up there. Is there some type of rehab for that place? RPPA(Roppongi Party People Anonymous) or something?

Mother's Day & みかん狩り

今日は母の日でみんなで寿司食べに行きました!! その後実家で夏みかん狩りをしました♪!

I took my wife and her mother for sushi for Mother's Day. Her brother and his wife joined us along with the 4 kids (my two and his two). You have no idea how funny it is to watch a 3 yr. old and a 4 yr. old argue over what to order.
After sushi, we all went back to pick summer mikans (japanese orange) in the backyard of my wife's family home. It was a pretty good day except for the ants that were falling from the mikan trees.

A Rose For My Mom


Another Mother's Day is here,
Bringing joy and pleasures new,
On this special day, Mother dear,
I want to remember you.
I cannot give you costly gifts,
And I've told you this before,
No matter what I give to you,
You give back much, much more.
I'm giving you a pure, sweet rose,
Gathered in the early morn,
This rose you planted in my heart,
The day that I was born.
In kindly, loving thoughts of you,
And with the faith you still impart,
The rose I give to you today,
Is the love that's in my heart.
