Saturn
Our new car. '98 Saturn Sedan
Our '87 Plymouth Voyager died
We've leased from Saturn of
Burlingame, CA for 3 years
for $250 a month.
We're really happy with the car
and the service we get from the
staff at Saturn.
We could have gotten a much
lower monthly payment, but
Hiroyuki Wanted a sun roof and I
wanted the full electrical
package with the alarm system
We are happy with the car.

Hiroyuki wants to be able to show
everyone the car so he has taken
several pictures to be posted.
The car rides very quietly.
It is a solidly built car
and with the maintenance program
there will be no suprises
during the term of the lease

This is the final picture.
Shall we go for a drive?? (-:

We were concerned that Jerry would become lonely so we got him a buddy. This is Cappucino a four year old Himalayan.

Glass Racks
This is April 2000. Our old glass racks in the studio were woefully inadequate. We have a wonderful group of dear friends who donated their time one Sunday to throw out the old and build the new. These are the old racks.

We borrowed the parking lot of our neighbor next door to have enough room. From left to right. Frank, Yuki, Fred, Sid and Chuck.

Yuki had never seen an air gun for nailing before. Once he got ours in his hand he never let anyone else use it.

Yuki spent most of his time straddling the interior of the new racks so he could do all the nailing. Frank is one of our students who came in for a 3 week intensive course and wound up staying for two months. We made good use of his muscles this day (-: Thanks Frank (-:
