More News on Origami Bouquets for Oncology

Delivered about 20 origami bouquets to one of the oncology coordinators.

Here is the report from her first delivery –   I just delivered three of the flowers to the inpatient oncology unit at Littleton.   The first lady was so grateful.  The second one couldn’t quit smiling.   And the third was a very weak, tiny, elderly lady who looked to be of Japanese descent.  Her face lit up like sunshine.   She had a pillow in her lap so I laid it on the pillow.   Later, when I was leaving, I peeked in on her.  She was asleep with the flowers in her hand.   This morning one of the Radiation Therapists took one to put by the machines so patients could see it when they walked in for treatment.   I would say that the first four made the day for a lot of people.

Warui Kozo and the Futon Yokai

Henry here with a guest post.  I am sitting on the doggie futon in this picture.

Here I am playing with a Halloween toy, doesn’t the futon look okay?

Well Mom caught me pulling some stuffing from the doggie futon.

She said I was a warui kozo, a bad stinker or brat.  I tried to tell her that the Futon Yokai was possessing me but she would have none of it.

The Futon Yokai is incredibly clever.  It has possession of the doggie futon and is enjoying tormenting me.  You would think it would want to protect itself.  But no, it is also a warui kozo and even if I shred the doggie futon to oblivion and it loses its home it is happy if it gets me in trouble.

Bad bad Futon Yokai, I hope Mom can feel its presence soon so she’ll understand what is going on….  You believe me don’t you?

Monku! Monku! Monku!

complain complain complain

Growing up it was a contest between me and my brother who could be the biggest monkutare!!

Well he won this contest.  Maybe being the baby of the family gave him extra monku powers, but he sure was cute!   Mom and dad couldn’t stay annoyed with him for too long.  Me and our sister Kris?  We pretended to stay annoyed.

Got to get this surprise box in the mail to him 🐒🐵

Some of the surprise I didn’t include in the picture in case he reads this post 🙊🙈
