( Passport photo. I’m on the right with open mouth.)
My family lived in England from 1952 to 1955.
In 1953,, my parents attended Queen Elizabeth’s coronation.
We still have a lot of the souvenirs, most of which are with
my niece in Colorado. Among the collection is a replica of the
golden carriage. It’s really lovely.
I was only 5 years old at the time and had a British accent!
Alas that lovely accent is long gone…

On June 12th, I’ll be traveling to Japan.
Finally, after all these years, I’ll see Japanese carp
in Kyoto. Six glorious days there 🙂
