Your cat looks very comfortable with life. :D

Spoiler:
I think your henoheno actually looks a bit like a cat ^_^

This is just a tryout.

Chikara, looking good, indeed. Not look a day over 30, surely?


No, not a day over 30, more like 6,500 days :(

No comments on the cat? :)

Personally I don't like cats but my dogs love them. :D

Here's a pic of me when I was 30 with the two dogs I had at that time.

Apologies for the budgie smugglers :o

Don't complain to me that people kick you when you're down. It's your own fault for lying there

Most henohenomoheji I've seen and drawn look stern to me because the へ mouth gives me the impression of disbelief. I imagine them saying "I don't believe that".

Of course, that's easily solvable:

I think it's funny that your cat is sleeping in every photo you show of him. It's a cute cat. I had a cat when I was a kid, but she was black and thin.

By the way, chikara-san, your beach pictures are really cool! That's windsurfing you're doing, right? I've never done that, being landlocked and all... :|

Yep that's "windsurfing" or "sailboarding".

Despite the size of Australia 83% of the population lives within 50km of the sea. I spent about 6 or 7 years living away from the sea but now the beach is only 250m from my house. With global warming it may get even closer :o

When I was in Japan in March this year I watched some windsurfer racing in the ocean off Kamakura. It seems to be quite popular there.

Well, you don't look it, mate ;)
But I know the feeling! Pretty hard to come to terms with, actually.
Blink your eyes, and all of a sudden you're....
