Travel in the time of Covid

29 12 2020

So in August, My beautiful wife was told by her company that she will be handling an account overseas, which means we were moving overseas, Japan to be exact. So with little to no real time to prep we get the house ready to rent out and started informing the family that we were starting another new adventure as we have both lived in Europe before and I spent some time in Korea.

December 26th 2020, we leave from Dulles International to tokyo Japan. Once we landed the Japanese TSA or whatever they call themselves took control and lead us to a series of tables that got us registered for the Covid-19 testing and then directed us to passport control. They were so efficient that it took an hour from landing to parking lot. They have their stuff together over hear. We received the results the next day while in day one of 14 days quarantine. We both tested Negative as we were pretty sure we would. So the adventure does not really begin until we leave this lock down. 2 more tests before we are released.

Please stay tuned as i hope to keep this running the entire time we are here. Pictures and words to help you see the Land of the rising sun through our eyes.

A Real Life Super Hero

13 09 2019

There was a real life super hero amongst us mortal beings. With a touch of her hand I felt better, with a kiss from her lips a boo boo was healed, when I and my siblings were in need of sugar, she would walk barefoot in the snow 3 blocks to get candy and never think twice about it. She put all the ingredients in the cabinet and fridge together to make a meal that tasted like heaven and could never be repeated. When i did wrong she punished me to teach me the lesson of how to be a person of integrity, honor and just plain great at being a human being. She gave me choices so that i would learn that when a choice is made of your own free will it came with consequences, whether good or bad. There was always a consequence and the only way to learn was to fail from time to time. The greatest adviser a child or grown man could have. Everything she did was for someone else, she had no clue how to take care of herself but excelled at taking care of others.

My Mommy was the Greatest Super Hero to Ever walk amongst us mortals. She passed away Sunday 8 September 2019. I miss her more than I ever thought possible.
