NOTE: Later today I am going to have to temporarily disconnect my computer and move it. I will try to get back on line but, if I have problems, I may not be able to continue the blog until I reach Fukuoka. Therefore, if this is the last entry, please check back occasionally. I will definitely be back on line in early April and will have lots of pictures of both our move and our new apartment. If nothing new shows up here, check my Facebook page for status reports.

NOTE: Yesterday we spend the afternoon at the real estate agent and completed, signed and sealed, all of the documentation so we have official sold our apartment. The sealed of 'signed and sealed' is far more important than the signed. As I said I will keep posting as long as I have internet access and then will begin again from Fukuoka as soon as I can get reconnected. I am spending most of my time between two things, packing and small goodbye get-togethers. Today, however, I will go to the doctor's to get my monthly supply of medicine, then to the Green Mart supermarket to get coffee, and finally on to Izumi Chuo where we have a number of errands to do, buy shoes (my feet are very wide and I have to go to special shoe stores), stop at the bank and get the change of address forms, and do some shopping.

NOTE: We have found a new apartment. It is in Fukuoka near the Hakata Minami Station, which is a shinkansen stop. The apartment is a 3LDK, one large room that functions as a dinning/living-room/kitchen. This has wood flooring as does one bedroom. The other two room are tatami mat. It is near a supermaket and there is a shopping area about a five minute walk from our building. I will eventually post pictures of the apartment and the area around it.

NOTE: For the next month and a half or so, my posting might become erratic, but I will continue to post as often as I can. The reason for this is that we have sold our apartment and are moving to Fukuoka Prefecture, far to the south of here. I will continue taking pictures to document the move and post whenever I have a chance. I will tell you in advance when I have to go off line while we change internet providers.
