October 17, 2005: The longest day
|Summer heat was over already and cool breeze sweeps Kujuu highland in the morning.|
|The containers of the hay feature their pleasant paintings.|
|This beautiful corridor of pines is the remnant of the passage connecting Higo (Kumamoto) and Bungo (Oita) in Edo era.|
|Cosmos was in full bloom.|
Aso mountain range was in the distance. I headed to it.
|Japanese pampas grass was very good.|
I took a picture by myself.
|Confederate rose welcomed me at the destination, Kumamoto City.|
|After my work, I returned back to Oita to join a party with dear old friends.|
|At the dawn of the internet,some 14 years ago,there was a group that enjoyed personal computer communication through the phone line.|
|Personal computers and word processors were very expensive in those days. More than ten years have passed before I knew and we grew up in our own way.|
|The regular monthly meeting was a big pleasure for us and had a pleasant drink party and enjoyed face-to-face chatting in a small dining room densely packed by the members.COARA|
|Old great dishes were served tonight as well, including green pepper packed with ground meat, squid fish ball and more.|
|I remember that the shape of the beef hot plate was square 10 years ago, wasn't it?|
|The pub, "Penniless" will be closed soon after 24 years running. This was why we had a farewell party here. The proprietors made a good-bye speech. Thank you very much for your good foods and drinks. We gave cheers in the end.|
|This sign, "Penniless", will be removed soon.|
|The partial eclipse of the moon looks down us. We lingered in front of the pub for a long time.|
|My favorite poster.
I have had a long day today.
