Just two photos from aforementioned Hakuho gallery that struck me as notable...

Hakuho's interview on news of Asashoryu's intai.

Taiho watching Hakuho during soken.

I've seen another version of this scene among the many pictures on this Forum, but now I can't manage to find it... on it Taiho looked like a supplicant calling to a miracleworker, so I was not sure whether it really was Taiho.

Very nice fellows -- I've seen them all before, but the trip on memory lane was delightful. Some kind of chronological order would have been helpful too. I remember it, but how many other list members would?

But at least, after three days in the wilderness, I have got back to a recognisable list that allows me to sign in and reply.
I'm sure that the new format will end up as God's gift to the 21st century -- but so far it's been full of -- what's the polite word for what I want to say????

New observation I thought was funny but Wayne didn't......

As for Jason and his wife Nicki here is the first verse i have written to a song I wrote in their honour....

 

"I married a woman,as crazy as can be,she's 3 parts vampire,2 parts chimpanze,i met her in the park she was swinging from the trees,I thought SHE was crazy,until I met her family......."
