The Last Day
8月31日 最終日だぞ

I took a lecture to renew my teachers license at my old university. It was my 5th time to take its lectures and this is the last day. At last I have renewed it. In 10 years I am supposed to take it again. I’m relieved.

I had lunch at the restaurant “Genta” I came here often when I was in my university.

I visited the stubborn owner’s ski shop in Matsumoto city to take a look of ski boots. I will buy a new ski boots next ski season.

29th Aug. YAMANEKO Lecture 山ネコ講義だぞ

8月29日 山ネコ講義だぞ

When I was jogging, I found the sign. Here is a water-storage dam and

the sign says… “They are on their guard against terrorism.” No worry about it! Our village (such a rural district) is no worth attacking.

When I arrived at my school, one of my students caught a snake. He really likes animals.

I had a lecture about YAMANEKO. The serial No. is now more than 400.

All of the students and teachers were pleased. Thank you for listening.

Lately, I saw a lot of crows often while I’m jogging.

It was cool in the morning as usual.

Although, I found frog, I failed to take a photo of it. Maybe next time, I can make it well. Please wait here until we meet again.

I prepared a lot for tomorrow.

I came to the restaurant [ I’ ] for the first time with colleagues. Although this cream pasta was delicious, mine is also good taste.

I could come back home early because new term has not started yet.

I went for a walk before 7 PM. I will be busy since tomorrow.
