Hello, hello, hello....and how are you today?



...so...do you think this looks like me?? No...well...me either...but...I kind of like it!! A few years ago when Issei and I were in Denver, we drug our good friends Dena, Lila, Cheryl, Marcella and Kim (who was visiting from Seattle) to Casa Bonita. Now, if you are not familiar with this particular eating establishment, then....you don't know what you are missing. Though the food is mediocre, the atmosphere is what you go for! Cliff divers, mariachi bands, gorillas running loose and all the sopapillas you can eat (as long as you keep raising the flag on your table!!)....it's just too much fun!!

So while we were there, I had a picture drawn by a caricature artist....and this is just part of what he drew!!

A few months ago, I decided that I needed business cards to give to students and for a giggle, I put this on to see what it would look like!! ("Debra Kuroiwa, English Language Consultant"!!) Personally, I kinda like it...so will leave it on until I can find something better!! Obviously, I was much younger then....

Anyway....let's see....Oh...HAPPY BIRTHDAY to our good friends Lila (ageless!!) in Colorado and to Aida (9) in California!! We wish you both wonderful days full of fun, cake, lots of presents and laughter!! I spoke to Lila today for about an hour (how does the time go by so fast?!?!) and both of us were sniffling, coughing and sounding pretty damn nasaly (is that a word?)!! I hope you are feeling better soon....

Okay....let's see (#2)...not really much happening here....Issei is looking forward to next week as it is the end of the school year for him. He will have about 2 weeks holiday and then it will be time for 4th grade!!! Doesn't seem possible!! We are looking forward to getting his report card...he has done so much better these last few months in math and science, so we are hoping his grades came up. His kanji (Chinese characters) grade is what we are worrying about...though he has improved a bit, he doesn't really try very hard....Science and bugs are his forte these days. Will let you all know next Friday what the results are!! Keep your fingers crossed!!

We have been hit by some kind of "bug" here...lot's of people out with the flu...but we just have a cold we keep passing back and forth to each other. Hoping this is over soon and that all of you are doing good!! The cherry blossoms are about to "do their thing" here so am looking forward to the spring season!! It is my favorite time of year!!

Take care....peace, love and hugs & kisses to you all!!

I like the photo too- you are right that it doesn't really look like you, but it has your karma!
