Performed at the station & Reduced memory capa for Video;

Performed at the Railroad Station 
Last Sunday, the band group my husband involves was invited to perform at the country side station called "Atu-station 厚保駅".  So surprised when I heard the professional Jazz Singer called "Barusan" was also invited. I am happy if you can enjoy the atmosphere of the country side station and the performance of the band group on the "Truck" ;-)



Sorry that the video is a bit long (4 min.) 
Medley of Kayama Yuzo  link

My husband looked happy to be able to try "shakuhachi 尺八” for the first time
from the other group's member. 

Reduced Memory Capacity for uploading video 
This topic is just in case you will find it helpful for you, 
and if you already knew how to do it ;  please skip reading p-;) 
The file of the video up there was too big (long?) as usual. When I did the right clicking of the file, I happened to find the "file converter" in the list.  Converting to "Mp4" was helpful reducing the memory. Lower quality worked for uploading. 
I was happy it worked as I sometimes have videos I wish to upload.
*Please enlarge the picture to see it clearly*

We are having Soba guests tomorrow, sorry for posting early..

Thank you very much for stopping by.
Wishing you will have a wonderful  new week;

Peony Garden in the City Park etc:



Peony Garden from Tokiwa Park in our city
Peony Garden from 2019, it was a special visit to this garden especially for my husband. He (has handicap with his legs) bought a wheel chair  last year and looking for a chance to use it. We went there late last month. I was happy to see him enjoying the peony in the park for the first time. 


Let me skip putting the names this year ;-)




Dragonflies and Varied Tit
I posted the dragonflies my husband made here. Some of them were already gone to his friends and neighbors p;-) He looked happy receiving favorable reviews for his work from the acquaintances;-)

♡ Happy to find Varied Tit on the tree in front of my house 



Thank you very much for stopping by.

Calligraphy Exhibition, Children's Day, etc;


Went to see Calligraphy Exhibition
Late last month, my husband and I've been to the calligraphy exhibition of 'genyukai school' to our 'city cultural hall'  located right next to city music hall . Every time we went to see the exhibition I am amazed with their amazing ability. 

My first time to see this style of writing "折帖"
"折帖. oricho" is Folding type book.  No idea how they can write with ink on book type.




Children's Day, 子供の日 kodomono-hi 
Today, May 5th is Children's Day or Boy's Day celebration.  Koinobori, meaning "carp streamer"  are carp-shaped wind socks traditionally flown in Japan to celebrate Tango no Sekku (端午の節句), a traditional calendrical event which is now designated a national holiday; Children's Day.
Two pictures below are from I found recently;  First one was from the private house near convenience store. Second one was from inside the big department store decorated among the stairwell.

Skylark in the Wheat Field
A couple days ago,  we were driving the Countryside away from our city for a chore. When we stopped along side of the road to rest, several Skylarks were in the wheat field having late lunch. Luckily, I could take some shots and video ;-)



I am going to be away from home for about 5 days since evening of 6th
sorry that linking will be late. 
We got into New Ara "Reiwa", hoping to start peaceful days and new week for you.
