I started blogging Feb.1st in 2011, and this 31st is my father's 88th birthday.
I wish to express my deepest and sincere gratitude for all of my friends who supported and encouraged me through heartwarming comments through 2 years. I feel so blessed to be able to have new friendship with you♡♡♡  Blogging sure created me a new world, which teaches me your corner of the world. And how wonderful to share happiness and hardship each other♪♪♪

He was a really modern stylish man whom I could proud of. He took me on the back of his motorbike and I loved to feel the air with him. He sure was a loving father and deft at especially carpentry work.  This picture must have been taken at the "Carso Plateau" in my prefecture when he went there by motorbike about 50 years go. p;)  Not sure I was with him or not.  Love You, dad♬♬♬

So sorry for my absence everyone!!!  Since my last post, I was so tied up. However, I think I'll be able to have a normal pace.  See you soon♪♪♪

  19. Dear Miyako,

    So lovely to have found your blog and can learn more about you and your wonderful life in Japan.
    It is a great photo of your dear Dad and sounds fun when you used to ride on the back of his motorbike.
    Many thanks for visiting me and your kind note you left me.
    Have a great week

  20. Love the photo of your dad, I remember when my dad had a motorbike he would take me to school on the bike and you know now days hubby has a motorbike and I will not get on it at scared now

  21. Dearest Miyako san,
    Missed this because my PC crashed about four times and all I did later was backing up things. I got so scared it would be lost; so no blogging...
    Yes, a special beginning for February; first your 2nd blog anniversary which is remarkable and I'm still in awe how well you manage this in ALL English! That's a big WOW! And secondly, a happy and a sad moment to see your Dad turn 88... on the last day of January. He is almost one year younger than my Mom who celebrates 12 days later. Keep all those sweet memories close to your heart! That's life...
    Hugs to you,

  22. My sweet Miyako, congratulations on 2 wonderful years! It has been a pleasure and an honor to share your friendship and I will be here for all the rest. Wishing your precious father a very happy birthday. Warmest hugs, my friend.
