Originally I was going to write a nice photo illustrated article about our trip to the Yagen Valley to see the fall foliage. We followed the old small gage railroad tracks and took many pictures of outdoor baths and mossy picnic tables among the giant trees—but that was a long time ago now.
I was also going to write about the Saturday on which we invited all eleven of Ikokuma Elementary School’s grade six students, together with their teacher, to learn how to make cinnamon rolls and apple crisp with Yuko—but that is now a long time ago as well, so no more pictures.
And last week the entire clan of Japan Elliots made there way to Connecticut for my sister Leta’s wedding—you can see the rest of the photos here. CONGRATULATIONS ADAM AND LETA!! WELCOME TO THE FAMILY, ADAM!!
There were many other cool photos and articles I was going to post—but I didn’t.
