The Witless Clunkery of a Third-Rate Mind

September already

I'm back home in Tokyo now. I got in last night, after a trip that was probably the smoothest I've ever had. I stayed at my friend Tony's place in Fergus, got up at a totally reasonable time, had a relaxed breakfast, went nice and early to the airport without any difficulty (thanks Tony!), checked in (almost nobody in line), went and had a coffee, and sat and read my book until it was time to board the plane. I was quite comfortable in the extra-spacious seat I had booked. There wasn't even anybody in the seat beside me, and I was actually able to sleep a couple hours. I watched a few surprisingly good movies (no problems with the video system this time!), and there was nobody was kicking my seat. Upon arrival in Tokyo, I got through customs in about 5 minutes, and picked up my suitcase 15 minutes later. I took the express train home and was eating dinner about an hour after I left the airport. Simply amazing how smoothly everything went - but it is precisely these event-free trips which make us frustrated when things DON'T go smoothly, so I will try and be thankful that I didn't have any problems rather than the other way around.

Canada was great, although it was too bad I couldn't really see people more. Maybe next summer I will have more of a chance to spend time with everyone. But, until then, please remember to send me a short e-mail, or to try and hook up with me using Skype.

The kids keep asking when you are coming over, haha, they don't know where Japan is. Glad you had a good trip. Talk to you soon. Kevin, Denise, Ryan and Maddy
