Zutto Zutto Tomodachi; and, The Collected Adventures of Sparkychan and Gojochan (Thus Far)

Cross-posted at Citizen of Somewhere Else

Has a better ring to it than "best friends 4evah," right? Well, it has about the same meaning. It's a line from the song onechan and her friends sang at the graduation ceremony for the older kids in her yochien this past spring. Since we're leaving Fukuoka before she can get to take part in a similar ceremony herself--in fact, we've already spent a full day in Chiba--I'm taking a break tonight from LPGA blogging to convey a big "sayonara" to all the Fukuoka friends she's leaving.

Maybe their parents can read them the Collected Adventures of Sparkychan and Gojochan (Thus Far), courtesy of Uncle Bill Benzon, and leave a comment or three here for him and onechan....

Been working so long today onechan was happy at the chance just to sit down at the computer with me. We went through the Collected Adventures (Thus Far) and she really loves them. The questions she doesn't really get--or chooses not to answer--but she always wants to look at more.

Onechan wants to say goodbye to her friends: yuri-chan, yukino-chan, yuuto-kun, ryo-kun, nanami-chan, kyoka-chan, saya-chan, suzu-chan!

There's more but she's getting tired of typing.

Well, there are some things in the stories for adults, of course, aren't there always? And some things are super secret hidden coded messages for
WAAGNFNP insiders.
