grandma of the future

like your Great-Aunt Mildred, only younger. This is where I toss the equivalent of notes scribbled on little slips of paper torn out of mailing envelopes.

    Saw this book of bead crochet animals, which are very very cute, and look fairly simple to make. I may wind up going back to Hakubundo (Ward Warehouse) for it. #crochet #kawaii #amigurumi

    hawaiianhistory:

    9 February - in Hawaiian History [1901]: The Beretania Tennis Courts open in Honolulu near the main post office on South King Street. The courts draw the world’s tennis elite to the Islands including Japanese tennis star Zenzo Shimizu who arrived to play a match in February 1922, causing quite a stir.

    Shimizu was considered one of the two pioneers of tennis in Japan and had made the finals at Wimbeldon in 1920. He was ranked #4 in the word in 1921 and was a member of the Japanese Davis Cup team.

    1. Zenzo Shimizu at the 1920 World Hardcourt Championships at Paris
    2. Ichiya Kumagae and Zenzo Shimizu
    3. Shimizu and “Big” Bill Tilden at Wimbeldon. Tilden defeated Shimizu in the 1920 Wimbeldon finals 6-4, 6-4, 13-11

    Love the classic tennis sweater - still stylish today #knit
