First Birthday Card
My first birthday card arrived yesterday from Japan. It was fun to reconnect with Akemi Ueno-Wakatabe, who hosted me for 6 weeks in the summer of 1983. Her birthday was in July, so I wrote her about this blog site! She said there are too many English sentences to read it all, but she really enjoyed the pictures - especially the one of my brother Clint. Akemi hasn't seen him since he was 7 years old - during the summer she lived with us in Kansas. Nice to reminisce with "old" friends.
