Default [IBC] A little off topic, but I WILL mention bonsai ;-)

In Hawaii, fifty years ago next month I stepped aboard the S.S.
President Cleveland enroute to several years in the Far East,
starting in Hong Kong and later in Japan (where I also got
introduced to bonsai).

I was 16 years old.

I soon met 15-year old Jackie Hirth who also was on the ship
heading to Japan to visit her grandparents, who had lived there
since 1902 (!).

Forty-three years ago TODAY, I married her. ;-)
