Anti-Nuclear Demonstration

Sunday afternoon
19th June, 2011
This City

There was an anti-nuclear/anti-Tepco demonstration by maybe 1,000 angry demonstrators.
We were toasting my Mother`s birthday with pink Yellowglen champagne
out on our balcony when this almighty din erupted ... 

If you have 3 spare minutes, then check out my video clip.... not so interesting
to most people but interesting to those of us, who still live here.  

Yukie came to visit

On Saturday afternoon / evening
18th June, 2011
Chikako`s great friend, Yukie
came to visit us in This City. 

It was a slightly belated Happy Birthday visit for Chikako_san. 

Even Mr. Crow brought a friend along !  

Mr. Crow got a delicious treat to eat ... yum yum.

Birthday Balcony

Part 2 of my present to Chikako.
Taken on Sunday, 12 June, 2011. 

A Birthday Balcony 

 Laying the outdoor carpet tiles on the concrete
surface and then cutting them to size ....   

 Produce a snappy new table & chair set  
plus sprinkle a few plants here `n there. 

And what have you then got?
 You got this, is what you got ....  

 Night view towards the City Centre. 
Happy Birthday, Baby ...  XX 
I hope you like your presents.
