扉修理作業 / Repair the door


In almost 20 years, the number of places that need to be maintained increases in my house. Problems have also appeared in the door of the customers room. Every time I open and close, an abnormal noise is generated. I then looked closely, there is a gap in the combined tree joint. Because it is made of solid wood, it is heavy. I removed it and repaired it with my wife’s help. If it shifts again, I will try to pour the adhesive.

草津温泉 / Kusatsu hot spring


My son and his wife came from Singapore and spent the weekend at Kusatsu Onsen. The other day, I tried using Daitokan near Yubatake with my wife this time we stayed this place again with Kurumi. My son and his wife were pleased with the good access to Yubatake. Fortunately, it seemed to have escaped from the influence of Typhoon No. 15 that passed through the Kanto region, so it was a little rainy but I could enjoy the trip without much trouble. We are grateful that we can visit Karuizawa and have a good time together also.

歯医者、眼医者、クリニック / Dentist, Ophthalmologist, Clinic


I work three days a week, but I worked almost every day last couple of weeks. It’s been an off day today, but I started to read emails for business after breakfast. After checking the schedule for rest of this week, it was 10am when I saw the clock. Don’t immerse in work, turn off my computer and check today’s schedule, booked a haircut at Noon, ophthalmologist at 3:30pm, only 2 were in my calendar. I planned to go to the clinic for getting the medicine and visit the dentist where I have not been there for a while. The dentist has to make a reservation, but I was lucky enough to get an 11 o’clock slot. I hadn’t been there for more than 2 years, but I had my tartar removed and confirmed that there were no bad points. Went to the barber shop and slept, had a lunch and relaxed. I have been examined regularly after suffering from retinal detachment 10 years ago. There was no abnormality this time, but I had a prescription for eye drops because of dry eye symptoms. The clinic also prescribed a drug for reflux esophagitis. There are some bad places because I am this age. But I can confirm that my teeth and eyes are okay. Appreciated such my teeth and eyes today.

84 歳での旅立ち / Leave on 84th

昨夜 10 時過ぎ義母は 84 歳の生涯を終え義父が待つ天国へ旅立っていきました。最後は娘たちと家族に見送られて静かに静かに息を引き取りました。医師の診断書には「老衰」の文字が。みんなと一緒に旅立った義母は幸せでした。晩年は介護施設の方々のお世話になり、私たちは楽をさせていただいたのですが、施設の中で一番、訪れてきた人たちだと言われて、少し慰められたものです。

Mother in law passed away last night she was 84 years this year. We are sure Father in law is now meeting with her in the heaven. The medical doctor wrote in the column “Senility” as the reason. Such a quiet finish with all of us 2 her daughters and family.

二人目の魔女さん / 2nd Witch to home

6 年も前になってしまいますが、一人の魔女がウチに来ました。そして今回、妻が二人目を連れて帰ってきました。今度の魔女さんは立って経典を持っています。生まれは横浜、飯島都陽子さんの「グリーンサム」という魔女とハーブのお店です。元町にあるお店は難度もテレビで紹介されているので多くの方が訪れています。さて、三人目はいつ来ることでしょうか、それとも既に我が家には最初から魔女さんが居るのかもしれませんね。
