Hau'oli Makahiki Hou/Happy New Year to you!
Were you able to stay up until midnight? I tried...made it to 11:30pm...I did hear the gunfire going off at midnight. Fireworks are not permitted, although I wouldn't be surprised if there is some of that going on too. There is always gunfire...that is against the law too.
We went to Nagato's Sukiyaki & Sushi restaurant for dinner last night. Their food is so good. It is a family run restaurant...they've been in business for 40 plus years. It could probably be considered a "hole-in-the-wall" type of restaurant. It is nothing fancy...just authentic Japanese food and lots of it. We were both stuffed when we left.
A story about Nagato's...back in the late '70's...my younger sister lived in Sacramento...I lived in Fresno. Denise and I would come to Sacramento to visit and a couple of times, we went to Nagato's to eat.
I moved to Sacramento in 1980...shortly after I moved here, I met Gerry...we were engaged shortly thereafter. One Friday night Denise was invited to a birthday party so we had about 2 hours before we had to pick her up. I took Gerry to Nagato's for dinner. I kidded him...it was a test, if he ate Japanese food and liked it, I would marry him. Well, obviously he passed the test.
Nagato's is one of the places I go for lunch...once in a while...I absolutely LOVE Japanese food and could eat it every day.
We came home and spent a quiet rest of the evening.
I am looking forward to a great new year. I have several projects I want to do...trust I will enjoy good health...I still need to have my cataract surgery.
A very heartfelt thank you to all who read my blog or find it in your searching for other things. Hope you like what I "ramble" about...
Have a blessed New Year!!
