It is sleepytako's birthday and oh it is groundhog's day too..., originally uploaded by angryparsnip.
I am posting this a day early because if it is February 1st in Tucson
it is February 2nd,
Groundhog day in Japan. My evening is the next day morning, and
yesterday is today
oh gosh you get the idea. . .
This charming photo was taken on my last trip to Osaka. Lunch at a
Everyone thinks Fugu is dangerous, poisonous, blah, blah, blah but let
me tell you that is
the lest of your problems.
What is dangerous is the drink that comes with the meal.
Gasoline tastes like a fine wine next to this drink.
Hot Sake filled with the dried tail and fins of the Fugu and you are
to drink it with the meal.
The smell is overwhelming and the taste indescribable.
As you can tell from the photo the only way to drink some of Fugu
cocktail (?) was to hope the
cigarette smoke would cover the smell and dull the taste buds which is
no big deal because
Fugu is rather bland so who would know ?
Not sure if that is working !
but, Oh My Goodness I do love this photo of Japanese Son.
So Happy Happy Birthday my little Groundhog Baby I remember the day
you were born as if
it was today or tomorrow or yesterday or . . . whenever you get the
idea. . . Bigs hugs ! ! !

This is a great Holiday to have your Birthday on. Not big enough to
overpower you day but fun
enough to have a good laugh. Plus I think Groundhogs are rather cute.
