Tom: First of al, we would like to thank everyone for the lovely comments on Yuu-Chan yesterday. They truly warmed our hearts. Second, we have the Labramenace, Fernant, staying with us until Monday evening.... Will any of us survive? We are already in a state of siege as we have a serious issue with our septic system which means that we are living life "medieval style" at the moment. It's going to be an interesting weekend....
Anyway, I did want to tell you about my very fun day a couple of days ago. We live in an area which has a lot of apple orchards and produces apple juice, (hard) cider, and stronger stuff such as pommeau and calvados. #1 has a friend who is a producer and he was having some Japanese guests and asked #1 if she would be there to interpret for them. Naturally, I got asked along too!
We started out by visiting the apple orchards:
The nice visitors immediately got the idea and looked for a stick to throw!
Then we went our friend's house for lunch:
It was built around 1480. Pretty good workmanship back then!
Even though the Japanese visitors had come to see the orchards, I think they were more interested in me!
I love meeting new people!
