... for an midday out. Mo, Yuriko, and Marina went out to shop around Kobe while Dennis, Dominic, and I went out for a ramen lunch and then to watch Shannon's basketball game. After a slow start the Motoyama Junior High School Fightin' War Eagles (just a guess) dominated in the second half for a solid win.
