It’s Monday and we’re starting to get ready for our final trip to Japan for 2009!  This will be a special trip for all of us since my mom, Carla, and my sister, Pat, will also be accompanying us.  My mom is especially looking forward to seeing her relatives when we go to Hiroshima next week.  For those of you who haven’t seen the TV documentary produced by TV Shin Hiroshima and shown in Japan last April, it was an amazing experience for me & my family.  Some day I’ll tell you the whole story when we have more time ….

I got up early this morning to take my car in for a safety check which had expired back in July.  It’s so ridiculous … all they do is check your lights and window tint, then charge you $20!  In my opinion, the city should require the safety check for cars that are 3 years or older instead of new or 1-2 year old cars!  I guess it’s just another way for public officials to dip into our wallets .. again!

Oh yeah … in case you were wondering, I played lousy 🙁 yesterday at our monthly Selohssa golf outing … @#%#$!  Out of 32 golfers, I think 25 beat me!  I think I need to take a break and recharge my game!

Aloha, The “:D”
