Jdaltons JblossomsWe're on vacation in Japan! We're visiting our friends Hector and Beth Dalton. Hector's here with 3M, and they've been here for almost two years. They really know their way around and Beth is doing really well on her Japanese. The Cherry Blossoms are blooming, which is a very special time here.

The plane trip was 12 hours long. I didn't mind it too much, but Lois was a little antsy toward the end. We're 14 hours ahead here, so it's been interesting adjusting to the time change. Since we get back on Good Friday, preaching five Easter services with jet lag could be interesting. But it's worth it!
