No tea yet today; don't know why -- just lazy I reckon.
Granddaughter Samantha heard from her Japanese employer today; he said for her to come on. So, she got her visa at the Japanese consulate on Tuesday and is planning her return to Japan on April 5.
Only a worst disaster at the nuclear plant would cause her to reconsider. As I told her, you can always cancel right before you step aboard the plane. She really wants to continue to live and work in Japan. She'll be assisting a teacher in the public school system to teach English. Samantha will be the "native" speaker. They'll all sound Southern.
I just finished reading For All The Tea In China
by Sarah Rose, on my Kindle. Interesting, well-written, fun read.
