Some incense for Mon-chan

I lit incense for Mon-chan, who is in the little box on the second shelf. I will take her to the Eko-in in Ryogoku on Sunday for cremation and a brief service. The Eko-in is an old temple going back about 400 years, and is where we did Hao’s cremation back in 2012.

The large box on the upper shelf contain’s Tao’s urn, and the little urn behind the box holding Mon-chan contains Hao’s remains.

Monta does, to my surprise, seem a bit lonely today, like he was looking for Mon-chan to have a squabble with. So I brought him into the office to hang out and he is crawling on my fingers as I’m trying to type this.

Monta’s Song

Monta likes singing when he’s happy and relaxed. He doing it right now, as he is crawling over my fingers while I’m trying to type this. He is intently staring at the screen when I play back the video.

As my friends know by now, only the males sing. One person described the java sparrow song as sounding like Star Trek phasers.

Mon was on Monta’s swing just now. I never saw that before. She’s getting adventurous in her old age.
