Anyway all this reminded me of the cute little Japanese five yen coin I have that is crafted to show the Japanese phrase for a happy chance. Happy Chance = Go En which by a "happy chance" is exactly the same pronunciation as Five Yen!
So somewhere many years ago I purchased this cute little souvenir.
Can you see the tiny couple in the central hole of the coin. They are grains of rice painted to look like a Japanese Bride and Groom in traditional wedding garb.
Anyway, enough trivia for the night. This is merely to note that I will be missing from Blogland over a long weekend but will definitely be back with reports and photos next week.
