We are alumni since we entered in 1970 and are good playmates. For a while, we met at an annual Mahjong trip and New Year party. One person who lives in the Tohoku region has been also participated. I’m grateful that I have friends who can talk freely. One person who reached the retirement age this year was decided going to Hokkaido then we had a send-off party around him. It seems that he was longing for a new place since he was born and living in the same place. I think the winter cold is severe, but I felt a certain longing for him to travel for new discoveries. For this reason, we may not meet at the same frequency as before. I would like to think about going to Hokkaido together. In commemoration from him he made a stuffed toy like a professional, we had a gift.
This is my 10th business trip to Singapore this year. I leave Narita in the evening and arrive in Singapore late at night. I work from the next day. On the way back, I left Singapore on the last working day midnight flight and arrived at Narita before 9 am. I had a day off, but sometimes I had to work from home. The other day there was a gathering in sync, but I was told, “It looks like you ’re busy forever.” I am grateful that I have retired but have been assigned this kind of work.
We were able to have dinner at our favorite restaurant on this month’s wedding anniversary. It has been 44 years since I got married in 1975. In retrospect, there were many things. There were mountains and valleys, and I am grateful for being able to walk along the path so far. We wants to make a 50th anniversary trip to Hawaii. Plan a wedding ceremony for just two of us.
I traveled to Shimane Prefecture this week. I moved around based on an inn near Hinomisaki located in the north of Izumo city. I went to Iwami Ginzan, Izumo Taisha Shrine and Matsue to spend time leisurely with Kumano Shrine and Adachi Museum of Art. We used a rental car for traveling within the prefecture, and the round trip to Matsue was able to test both north and south sides of Lake Shinji. Fortunately, it was blessed with mild weather, and I was able to enjoy my trip in a good place. For us, it will be 44 years on tomorrow’s anniversary, the purpose of our journey is to continue to be healthy.
October is said to be a godless month (Kan-Na-Zuki), but here Izumo, Shimane Prefecture, seems to call it the god-in-the-month because gods all over Japan gather to be here. I visit Iwami Ginzan, located in Shimane Prefecture. Sunrise Izumo leaving Tokyo station at 10pm on Monday night, the sleeper express separated from Sunrise Seto in Okayama at 6:30am, and arrived in Izumo at 10:00 in the morning. The sleeper train that I’ve been riding for a long time, the rhythm and the pleasant swaying of the tracks and wheels, I fell asleep. Immediately rent a car to Iwami Ginzan. Although it was a little rainy on the road, we were able to go around the mine and knew how hard it was.
The topic of smartphones continues, but when playing games, battery consumption is intense, and charging at the outside has become more frequent. So we decided to purchase a mobile battery. I chose something more convenient to carry than capacity. Cable and conversion connector are housed in the main unit. The size is almost the same width as iPhone, so you can hold it together. The battery can be fully rechargeable about twice, so you can enjoy Pokémon outside with confidence.
I got a smartphone and started playing games. Recently, the frequency of walking with Pokemon has increased. My wife and I are talking about searching for Pokemon while taking a walk or fighting in the gym. I also like puzzle games and I enjoy solving problems continuously every day. There are many twists and turns like this, but I want to protect the way I enjoy it and continue to try new things.
The damage caused to Japan by Typhoon No. 19 that came last weekend has been tremendous. Many people have died, and many still have no idea where to go. Every time I hear the news, I am hurt. After the typhoon passed, the temperature dropped and my house started preparing for heating. I’m going to do my wood work this weekend. Taking a walk, I went to a nearby river to see the situation. The muddy stream is still making noise. I pray to return to the river as soon as possible. Kinmokusei was scented near the the river. It’s already in autumn here. And next week, Typhoon No. 20 will be approaching, no more rain please.
I’ve used this title several times since I started posting on the blog. The typhoon passed right next to the area where I lived around 9pm last night. The weather was heavy and I was worried about the impact on my house, but fortunately there was no damage. When the typhoon passed, it suddenly became quiet and the rain stopped. This morning I found acorns in the clear blue sky and the fallen leaves falling in the park on a morning walk. I then looked up, saw a lot of vertebrate trees. Sediment disasters and flood damage are reported on TV. I hope that people in the affected areas will be quickly reconstructed and safe.
The Typhoon No.19 will be landing in the Kanto region, I am very scared. An evacuation advisory was issued in the area where I lived because of a strong typhoon that has never been recorded. Year after year, strong typhoons began to occur. Also, I hear that the course is getting closer to the east because of the sea water temperature. When we think of the emergence of global warming, we realize the importance of protecting the global environment. It ’s going to be a sleepless night.
