    Hey, that's cool! Sounds like she's still doing well and enjoying the challenge.

    Hope life's good out your way, brother.

    All is well, on the whole. Well, except for the well, which is not well, at all. Damned thing went dry while I was out of town. A bit of an adventure.

    I take it the knee has not improved. I hope they are able to get you some relief. Surgery is no damned fun, but sometimes it does the trick.

    One last thing to mention. My little Aikidoka (who is not os little) was worried, as we were driving to her 4th kyu test, about how she would ever learn to fold the Hakama properly when she got her Dan rank...I told her I thought the other Dan rank folks and\or Sensei, would show her how when the time came. She was also nervous about the test in general, I just thought the Hakama thought was interesting

    That, or without the left knee problem to toughen you up, you’ve gotten soft enough to notice the right one. :D

    Anxiety about folding a hakama (autocorrect wants to make that “Havana”) is well grounded. Those things are hard to fold. Easier than folding Havana, but only a little.123
