If you saw yesterday's blog ...
my fortune cookie said ...
well today I got a little package.
Karen, one of my very best friends in high school ...
sent me unexpected and a wonderful surprise.
With a written note ... "A smile for your day!"
And I didn't know she knew ...
and I am a true ...
For years I watched Sumo basho's on channel 38
and subscribed to Sumo World magazine.
My hero was, still is, Wakanohana.
1850,an early Sumo wrestler.
I love everything about Sumo.
The tradition still honored.
The cleansing of the ring.
The skill and dedication.
The idea of a 15 consecutive day
basho (tournament) and the
champion being the winner
of 15 days of competition.
And, the fact that you can't tell
by the sumo player's demeanor ,
which is the winner or defeated.
No boasting. Manners.
I love Sumo.

Until I opened the mail, I didn't know ...
what today's blog would be.
