It's 5:45 a.m. and the sun has been shining for a good hour. There is no day light's savings time in Japan so the day begins very early here. As I write this, my sisters Suzy and Julie and their friend Marjorie are winging there way here on a Northwest Airline from Denver. They are expected to arrive at 5:00 this afternoon. I'll pick them up at the Narita airport and bring them back here. Our apartment is too small for three more people and just one bathroom, so they are staying next door at the Florashian Hotel. The party begins tonight!!
On the wildlife front - still searching for the grizzly bear, but in the meantime yesterday I captured a duck in the mud and a fuzzy bumble bee in mid flight as he buzzed my head. Here y'are, just for fun.
