I am not sure if I ever told you, but I wish I had a camera built into my eye.
If I had one in my eye, I could've shown you the guy on the train digging his nose and then eating what he dug...okay, maybe you wouldn't want to see that, but there are some pretty outrageous things that I witness on public transportation.
Like the women who insist on putting their faces on while riding the train. Can you believe that some use 4 different mascaras? (When they do it while you are facing them, you tend to take notice.)
I could've shown you the guy smoking then throwing his cigarette into the stream and the other who threw his into the sewage drain.
Or the people who drink canned drinks on the train and leave them under their seat for others to clean up after them.
I could've shown you the 980 yen (about US$9.80) price tag for 1 nub of wasabi (Japanese horseradish) at the market.
I could've shown you this bird taking the very tiny, but very ripe strawberry from my planter. This bird was quick and smart.
It sat on the edge of the planter, looked at me looking at it and took the strawberry.
It went up to the roof of the house across from our lanai to eat it. While I ran to get my camera, he came back to check out the planter again.
Then went onto the roof once more to wait until I left the window, I took its photo while it was waiting on the roof...I have a feeling it was a bulbul, but I can't be too certain.
The tulips on my lanai have started to bloom, so fast and so pretty!
