Chai, as I nibble on the remains of dinner's nan. 'Osaka Joe Cohen,' Paunxatawny Phill's Japanese cousin, saw his shadow today. Six more weeks of Winter. But what a glorious day it was! Warm enough to ride with my jacket open, no overpants, even took the liners out of my riding gloves!
(Note: Osaka Joe Cohen is the Americanization of "Osaka Jo Koen,"
which means 'Osaka Castle Park,'
a lovely place to spend a day right in the middle of downtown Osaka.)
