I Feel the Need. The Need to B...
Last weekend I watched the original (1986) 'Top Gun' on TV with my kids. My first son really enjoyed it, so I might take him to see the new sequel, 'Top Gun: Maverick' at the cinema. I hear it`s good. I haven`t been to the cinema for ages*.

Although I enjoyed seeing Top Gun again, now I have the song, “Danger Zone” stuck in my head. lol

Vocabulary:
- for/in ages = a long time. (このフレーズでは、age = 時代, ages = 長い間(時代) )

I found some more bottles. The ones at the back are milk (or drinking yoghurt?) bottles. The two at the front are maybe for cream or lotion. I learned that this kind of white glass is called 'milk glass'. I didn`t know that. On the left is some kind of ceramic insulator.

Vocabulary:

Old Spoon

Old Spoon
On Monday I went bottle digging in Sekigahara. I found a lot of old cans, & some new bottles, but no old bottles. I was disappointed. However, I found this interesting old aluminium spoon. It says 'スリ切約三瓦'. The logo is for Meiji Company. I think it`s a measuring spoon for powdered milk.

Vocabulary
- aluminium “アルミニアム” (UK, Australia) = aluminum “アルーミナム” (US)

Oh My God Medicine

スレッド
Oh My God Medicine
While I was cycling in Ikeda (north of Ogaki) I found these bottles and shards (ガラス片) by the road. The writing on the brown shards says 'トヤマ', '廣貫堂' & '神薬’ (God Medicine?). I think the others are medicine bottles too, except for the short, clear one. There`s nothing written on it, but I think it`s Yakult (drinking yoghurt).

Grammar
- 何と書かれていますか? 『__』と書いてあります = What does this say? It says “___” (“What is written...? '__' is written...” はあんまり使わない)

Japanese Umbrella Exhibition

スレッド
Japanese Umbrella Exhibition
I went to an exhibition of Japanese umbrellas at the Gifu City History Museum (until Sunday, May 22: https://www.rekihaku.gifu.gifu.jp/exhibition/event/gifu-wagasa2022/). I like Japanese traditional umbrellas - they`re really stylish.

I went to a similar exhibition of traditional umbrellas in Thailand. We could also see the process of making the umbrellas. However, at first I thought it was a process of destroying & recycling umbrellas. Then I realized I had started in the wrong place and I was going the wrong way around the display. lol. Oops.

Vocabulary:
- lol (internet slang) = Laugh Out Loud = 笑
- oops = おっと、しまった
