A journalist from one of the biggest newspaper publishing companies called me and said that his report had not been in the evening paper and apologized.

And the other journalist visited me at about 7 o'clock in the afternoon and said that he had come here late.
He also said he was sorry that he could not put the news of the event in the evening newspaper.

I told them that they did not need to concern themselves about it.

But one of them placed his report in the city news column with a photo in the morning paper.
Again I'll have a lot of telephone calls which will bother me till late evening today.

Today we had an annual event and thousands of people came.
Yesterday evening I was disturbed by incessant calls from people including a few journalists who wanted to attend the event.

I'm glad that I have a little break to escape from the hustle.
One man fainted because of the crowds and we had to call an ambulance.

Well, I must go back to work now,I'll write about it next time.

Yesterday I was terribly busy, but in the afternoon I managed to go to a get-together for my son's school at a hotel in Nagoya.

It was supposed to be the last party while my son is attending junior high school.
Several people spoke to me.

One of them said that she was hoping that her daughter will get married to my son in the near future so that she would be able to live free from all cares.

Of course she was not serious, but her crazy remark aroused sympathy from other mothers who had girls. One mother said that my son had helped her son a lot while his ankle was in a cast and he really appreciates it.

One of the teachers asked me how I could raise such a considerate boy,maybe it was the best compliment he and I had received all day.

I have a busy day ahead of me.
I feel uneasy because my father is going to be hospitalized today.

I have so many things to do today which I planned to do yesterday.but I'll have to give up trying to finish everything today.

I just pray my hands don't shake when I am driving. Because of the deformation of my spine,nowadays I don't feel so good and I have pain in my right hand and leg.

But by train, it will take 2 hours.
I only believe that my father has been a lucky man and still is.

I've been reading "Le Petit Chaperon rouge(赤ずきんちゃん)" in French since last week.
The tale should be easy to read,as it is aimed at children,but I only have finished two pages.

Once I tried to read "Le Petit Prince(星の王子さま)",but I found that I needed to improve my French more.

My correspondence course in French gives me a lot of opportunities to read various stories, such as "Poil de carotte(にんじん)""Les Trois Mousquetaires(三銃士)" and "A larecherche du temps perdu(失われた時を求めて)".

It is supposed to help me get used to the original books.
I look forward to the day when I can read many pages in French at once.
