our dad just called me and the 4 x 400 meter freestyle was won by our school. we started out fast and finished even faster for a school record with my aniki chan Ryo kun, swimming anchor and bringing home the win. after an hour's rest he will move on to the diving events. he is entered in all four events.

Ryo kun has won the 5 meter platform dive and is moving on to the 10 meter platform dive. After the 10 meter they will get a short break before the spring board dive events.

sake and brandy! my aniki chan could very likely sweep the diving events and of course our dad unit's good friend chris is coming to pick me up to take me to the gunshop after we first pick up the dad unit and ryo kun. he's gonna be so surprised but we've been planning this for some time now. we settled on the Panther Mini SASS some weeks ago, but the pistol was victor's idea and he convinced us last night about it. Aniki chan really likes unusual weapons and out of the box ideas. I sure hope he's goin to like them

PS let's all wish him luck for the final three events!

he place 3rd in the 1 meter spring board and 2nd in the 3 meter spring board events. he achieved his goal of making the top 3 at least in each of the diving events and winning in the 4 x 400 freestyle relay. well done aniki chan. and of course he's yet to see his presents. we're gonna wait a while to let him just enjoy the good feeling of winning a big meet. our team won the meet today and will move on to the next round.

Way to go Ryo!! Maybe he should be a Navy SEAL since he can both shoot well and swim well.

My dad's friend chris and his wife and school is out for the summer. It's just that our swim team is still in the playoffs and the hunt for a state championship in our class of school. and it would not have been polite to have just left them here by themselves so I volunteered to stay and also I was needed to go this afternoon to pick up the pistols and the rifle at the gunshop. we picked up our dad at the swim meet, and then we stayed for the awards ceremony and came home and ate a little dinner. We're about to give Ryo his new rifle and pistol. He'll be online in a few. and thank you for your concern and caring.

Ryo chan is only 5' 2" and half inches tall. I don't think the SEALS would take him either because of the CP, but it's been a life long dream of both of us to serve our country. I'm trying very hard to keep my grades up because it's my dream to go to West Point when I graduate high school. I want to become a helicopter pilot like my dad. Ryo chan will find the right way for himself one day, of that I have no doubt. Btw, he's always been a powerful swimmer. He's part fish in the water. and he's a bit of a daredevil too because he loves those high platform dives. we're gonna give him his new rifle and pistol in just a few minutes and then he'll be online.

Ja ne (see you)

Ryu, I hope you do go to WestPoint. That would be very cool. I'm excited to hear what Ryo is getting. Don't tell me yet, I don't want to ruin the suprise.

cheating and looking first. i'll post it again, after we give it to him. btw, dad got me the same pistol he got for Ryo chan and I bought him the rifle and our friend gary bought him two cases of ammo for the rifle. I'm going out to the living room now and dad is going to bring out the presents from the gun room in just a minute. we'll get back to you after the happy crying and thank yous are done.

samD about Ryu

I would say Ryu was not there most likely because we was up all night talking about what guns to get Ryo.

Great news but as I mentioned to LD earlier today - I'm afraid of deep water. Just don't drag Jeff into the pool!

It's too late for me, save yourself.

thank you all so much, but ryo is just one member of team. today whole team bring A game and in fact was our good friend gary who nail down our first place finish by placing third on the 10 meter platform dive. he also win gold medal with ryo as part of our 4 x 400 meter freestyle relay team.

as for presents, ryo's little brother ryu kun using his savings for heaven sake, purchase for ryo very first true military style rifle. it is the DPMS Panther Mini SASS chamber in 5.56mm x 45mm NATO standard round. and my pops get both of us the Ruger 22 Charger. ryo's is blue and ryu kun's is black and gray. they are both beautiful weapons and ryo is so very proud that family have so much trust in new ability to shoot. was not expecting to move up in caliber class until christmas, but it seem like christmas come early this year for little ryo. yay! hehe hehe hehe hehe <---- ryo doing igor laugh hehe hehe hehe! lol

Goodnight all.

I am about loaded and ready to hit the road. I will be gone til Aug-Sept sometime unless dogs and cats make it impossible. Hope to make it to Washington and go shoot with greasypaws, Clint, Schuyler and who else wants to join in. I will check in, briefly every morning and evening, the wifi gods permitting. Have a great summer all and enjoy it.
