The brutal elbows to the face & the full meaty hand slaps were heavy duty. More about this epic & historic sumo bout.
I know avocados aren’t usually included but when it is ripe, i’m using it!
Sunday: she’s home! we all (me, father and mother in law) all managed Ichiro just fine though he def missed his mom and clung when she arrived home.
PS yup, i set up hotel, breakfast and walking route to test for her (i’m helping :)) feel a cold coming on though…
