It’s Thursday and I gotta take my car in for servicing this morning. I think I may have waited too long since it now makes a funny noise when I start it up! I hope it’s just a fan belt or something minor ….
And the “old guys” finally gave the “young guys” a scare yesterday on the golf course! My friend and I took on Nick and Alex and actually TIED them! This is a huge victory for the “old guys” because we’ve been getting our butts kicked for the last several matches – the last being in Japan during our Golden Week tour when Ichikura-san and I were closed out with 4 holes still to go! That was the worst defeat ever .. a total meltdown! Yesterday was the first step on the road to redemption .. watch out guys!
I was again reminded about how different the food portions are here vs. Japan. For breakfast yesterday, I ordered a fruit plate and coffee – what came was a virtual buffet that could have fed an army! You could have easily fed 5-6 people with all that food! If I had ordered this in Japan, it probably would have been a few slices of fruit and a shot glass of coffee … and then I’d have to stop at the Family Mart or AM/PM to get a musubi or some soba!
