A story about an international couple raising and home educating three young boys on a small island in Japan, half living in buses, engaged in organic, self-sufficient farming in the middle of a mountain forest while dealing with climate, cultural, and personal challenges. These pages are about pretty much anything and everything all guided by our family motto, Taking Chances, Making Changes, Being Happy. Thank you very much for joining us on our ongoing crazy adventure.

Really tired but wanted to exchange email with you tonight. Actually today was doing laundry room in the house. It is a difficult project. Then Akiko family came to the house. They bought a car and now can easily com to the house. I was not happy because working. Anytime the family is a problem for the relationship. Really want to see you again. It makes me happy to know you are there for me anytime. You are very important. Send email when you can.

5/23/2010
Now I am in the classroom. Last night I was sleeping half the night in this room. Was thinking about you again.

5/22/2010
Ikuko,

Hi. I keep wanting to say many things to you.

Every time we meet and exchange email I am usually drunk.

Now it is early in the morning and I woke up and could not get back to sleep.

Many things are on my mind recently.

I want to say these things to you now when I am not drunk and can think.

I am happy with many things but in many ways I am feeling empty more and more.

I cannot get from Akiko and her family the things I really need.

It becomes more and more sad every day.

Even though I can feel good with you it is difficult to meet.

Many people are around and watching you and me anytime.

Really not sure what to do about this.

I am thinking about you more and more.

Send email when you can.

Howie

5/22/2010

Hi. Akiko and I were very happy you and your wife could come to our home for lunch.

We would like to thank you for the beer, cake, delicious fruit, and socks for Shai.

Francesca,

Hi. My wife and I were happy to know you were able to work things out with the truck. We are driving a very small car now and would be really happy if we brought the truck to Japan. Anyway this was the release of liability which Chris filed online months before. No doubt you will enjoy the truck for many years. Thank you again.

Howie and Akiko Hayman

Yes going to meet you then.

5/17/2010
Ayumi,

Hi. I am drunk again. Akiko is the same as boring Japanese. I spend tons of money and work every day on this fucking house. Many problems including elbow now. Akiko cannot show any emotion. Eventually we will split and it will be good for both. Really miss your excitement about everything in this world. I can appreciate the way you are. Send email when you can.

Howie

5/17/2010
Ikuko,

Now I am really drunk but thinking about you. Going to try and be back online again. Maybe crazy but really miss the way you smell. Your eyes are very beautiful. Send email when you can.

Linda,

Hi. I think you guys want to chat on Monday SD time which would be Tuesday in Japan. Me and Akiko need to take Shai for a shot that day. Already cancelled a couple times because he was sick. Next weekend works for us though or doing the Sunday in SD and the Monday for us. Anyway, the house is now totally usable and looking really good. This was four months of working almost every day from early morning until night. Planning to post all the exciting details and pictures of this project. Now the classroom is finished and can begin accepting students. The garden is doing really well and should produce plenty of food. This year the temperatures in Japan were much cooler and resulted in high food prices now. Cabbage is selling for 3 to 5 dollars a head. The garden should offset much of our food costs. Hopefully you guys are doing well. Send email when you can.

Howie

5/16/2010
Hey I am waiting for you to go home and be online. You smell really good anytime. It was nice to meet.

5/15/2010
This afternoon I could smell you again. It was very nice.

5/15/2010
Already you know I like you very much.

5/14/2010
Now I want to be happy. I want you to smile.

5/14/2010
Anytime I can feel very much from everything. Today I was driving and a bird hit the window of my car. Then I went back to get the bird before a car would hit the bird. Now the bird is happy and in the house. Then I am going to set the bird free. It was very sad but then happy. I want you to understand everything about me if you can.

5/14/2010
Now I want to be normal same as everyone else in the world. I am feeling so much anytime. It is a problem in mind. It is easier to be like other people but cannot do. Want you to understand about this.

5/13/2010
Now I need you to understand. I can feel so much. There is nobody can feel with me and now lonely. Need so much now and cannot get anytime. Need you to understand everything if you can.

5/13/2010
Maybe should be inside you now.

5/13/2010
Now classroom is in front of house. It looks really good. English is very important. Happy to be teaching again.

5/13/2010
Yes the classroom and office almost finished. Will be teaching soon.

Hi. I am going to sleep now. I want to kiss you again. Good night.

5/10/2010
Actually my cum is good taste for you I think.

5/10/2010
Yes we like each other. It is not about sex. The touching is because we like each other and can feel excitement.

5/10/2010
Really your hands felt very good. I wanted to cum in your hands.

5/9/2010
Now I am very tired. I need to sleep. I want you to touch me again if you want.

5/9/2010

What are you doing now?
not be online now?

I'm thinking about you and worry and know if your elbow is getting better.
I like you very much.
I think about you all day today.
I want to see your smile.
It will be happy for me.
I don't want you feel so sad.
Everyday you should feel good and smiling.
It makes me happy.
You are really good person and I think you have a power to make everyone happy.
Please have confidence in yourself.
I really like your personality.
It is not so bad in this world than you think.
The people who meet you will be very happy.
I think so everyday.
I become to be very happy whenever I see you.
So I want to see you anytime.
When I became very tired, I remember your smile and when you hug, imagine what you tell me many thing until now for example you having fun by sunshine, sound of the rain and wind and so on because that's makes me feel so good.

I want you to know it.
I want to tell you many thing.

Ikuko

5/5/2010
Yes everyone thinks we are a good couple.

We are not.

Very distant.

Maybe we stayed together because many people wanted us to split.

Maybe we tried to prove something and make it work.

We are both unhappy and talk about splitting a lot.

It is sad anytime.

5/5/2010
Akiko is a good woman for sure.

But she does not worry about me and think anything.

I say many nice things to her.

Give her passion anytime.

She will not ever day no but she feels nothing.

She simply exists like everyone else.

Nothing is exciting for her.

Nothing makes her feel anything.

Now very lonely to be with her.

5/5/2010
Now I need you to understand many things. Maybe I am strange and different from everyone. People do not feel anymore. They simply exist and wait until they are gone. It is sad. The world if filled with wonderful things. People do not see anything around them. Many beautiful things they cannot see and feel. It is sad because I cannot connect with anyone anymore. Want you to understand this.

5/5/2010
Hey I kissed you last night. I became really katai because of kissing you. I wanted to hug you very close and you could feel everything. Then your sister came out and could not. Want to do it with you again.

5/5/2010
Now elbow very bad. Cannot do many things but trying to finish work in the house. Wife does not think about me. She does not appreciate anything. Do not want to stay with her now.

5/5/2010
Now I am listening to angry music. Maybe I am going crazy. I need someone to understand. I am alone in this world now. I want you to know.

5/5/2010
Hi. I was working today and really messed up my elbow. Now cannot do many things. Trying to finish house work. My wife is very cold. She does not worry about me anytime. I am very sad again. I know you worry about me. For sure you make me feel good. I am waiting for you to send email again.

5/4/2010
Keeko,

Hi. Akiko and I plan to meet you at the coffee shop between 10 and 11 am. Please send email if you can still meet. Talk to you again.

Hi. I know you are sleeping but want to thank you for the email you sent. This is another difficult time with Akiko and family but going to get through it. Really want to talk to you about many things. You worry about me and it makes me happy. You are very nice anytime. Really want to see you again.

Howie

4/29/2010
Ikuko,

Hi. I am not sending email much these days because of thinking.

I am trying to decide many things now.

I want to talk with you directly but it is difficult.

Maybe at the BBQ party.

Send email when you can.

Howie

4/29/2010
Ikuko,

Hi. I want to talk with you about many things.

I think you can understand anytime.

It seems difficult for you and I to be alone and talk.

Many people around.

I want to make time with you from next month.

Send email when you can.

Howie

4/29/2010
Hi. I was feeding the baby and now Akiko called and wants to be picked up. Will try to send email tonight. I am happy you are nice anytime. Thanks.

4/29/2010
Ikuko,

Hi. I was happy to see you again. Now Akiko is with her family. The baby is with me at home. Maybe see you again. Until then.

Howie

4/27/2010
Linda,

Hi. I am happy you returned home.

We were able to get rid of the bees this week finally.

Pretty incredible story even for the bee company.

Keep wanting to post about it but spending every day working on this freaking house.

Akiko is planning to work soon.

It would be nice to chat with you next week.

Send email when you can.

Howie

4/27/2010
Nobumitsusan,

Hi. Akiko and I really are looking forward to seeing you and your wife this week.

See you on Thursday at 12:00 pm.

We will be making spicy nabe.

Talk to you soon.

Until then.

Howie

4/23/2010
Now I am really tired and need to sleep.

Working a lot tomorrow.

I want to know the times you will come to this place.

I want to see you.

Send email when you can.

4/23/2010
Maybe not good to say jibun de but I am a very good husband.

Everything if for my family.

Akiko does not realize she has a good situation.

If she is with another man maybe very difficult for her.

Many times I want her to be with someone else.

Then she can learn and appreciate me.

I feel good these day because of you and your kind words.

Yes, I can understand very well.
If I was you, maybe I thought same as your thinking.
You are very good husband I think.
Usually almost people become to have lazy day everyday if he is in the house all day.
But you are defferent, you are not that man.
So I respect you very much and envy Akiko.

4/23/2010
This is not about sex.

I can sex anytime.

My ex girlfriends know about my power in bed.

I can cum and stay hard and cum again.

I am very good at sex.

I am not looking for this.

I want someone to feel the same excitement.

For a food, for a sunrise, for a sunset, for wine, for everything in this world.

Akiko cannot get excited about anything and this is the lonely point.

4/23/2010
Actually Akiko will do sex anytime.

She is not tired.

I am doing everything for her.

I feed the baby and give bath every night when finished working on house.

The problem is there is only passion if I begin.

I want her to come to me sometimes.

I say nice things to her anytime.

She is pretty.

I like her cooking.

She cannot say anything nice about me.

I married her.

I gave her a baby.

I moved to Japan.

I bought a house.

I spent money for this house.

I spend my energy for this house.

I feel awful everyday including back and legs.

I get many problems from her crazy family.

Even then I am not give up.

But recently my passion is getting stronger.

My loneliness is getting stronger.

Maybe I am going to be crazy.

I want you to understand all this.

4/23/2010
Actually it is not sexless.

I want Akiko to appreciate me as a man.

Every day working hard for my family.

Many men do nothing for their family.

Actually family is everything for me.

Akiko like the baby but could easily be without me.

It is like I am not important for her.

It is incredibly sad for me.

Many times I am working a lot.

She does not come to visit when I am working.

She does not worry about me.

You worry about me and it feels good.

This is my only family now but feel really really really really lonely.

It is awful for me.

Now I am happy in Japan and in this house and with the baby.

My wife is a stranger for me anytime.

I am fighting to stay with her and be a family.

My passion stays inside and I try to control but difficult.

Need and want to feel many things anytime.

I do not know what to do anymore.

You make me happy when I see you for sure.

4/23/2010
Actually I love Akiko very much.

But very angry because she cannot give me things I need.

It is her personality.

It is problem for long time.

Many times we talk about splitting the last few months but stay together.

I think we are a good couple but very different.

Cannot understand each other.

Recently Ayumi stayed my home.

Ayumi is same as me.

Sex is really good.

It is difficult for us to control when we see each other.

It feels good.

4/23/2010
In other relationship yes.

With Akiko cannot.

She does not need from anyone anything.

4/23/2010
No. She will do anytime.

She is not passionate person.

I can feel very much from anything.

From sex, food, music.

It makes me crazy.

Want to feel with someone.

Cannot with her because nothing is important for her.

Many arguments because of this.

I think you can know about this thinking.

4/23/2010
Yes going to sleep in same room but alone.

Need to touch myself.

It is lonely.

Think about you again.

4/23/2010
Planning to work outside tomorrow.

It would be nice to see you.

Waiting for BBQ party and get drunk with you.

Maybe can kiss you if you want.

4/23/2010
Actually was messed up from yard work. Are you good for massage. Send email when you can.

4/23/2010
Hi. I am really tired.

My elbow is not good for many days.

I am drunk again.

I am trying to stay awake to talk with you.

Send email when you can.

4/21/2010
Actually I want to see you now if possible.

4/21/2010
Actually I am very alone now.

Akiko is a different kind of woman and not good at being a couple.

Tonight I am sleeping in another room.

I am not getting anything I want from her anytime.

It is sad but it is our reality now.

I really like the things you say to me and it makes me happy.

You are very nice.

4/21/2010
Really try not to misunderstand.

No American is like me especially this age.

I am very powerful and extremely strong mind.

I can feel things other people cannot feel.

It is my strength and also a problem.

Many times difficult for people to understand.

I am very lonely anytime.

I am feeling alone in this world.

It is sad for me.

I want this world to be better.

I cannot find someone to understand me anytime.

Many Americans only think about themselves.

I am very different.

I want you to know me as much as possible.

I like you very much.

Marilyn,

Hi. Akiko and I want to say Happy Birthday to you. Recently we are not on the Internet much since we are very busy. Akiko is looking after the baby and I continue to work on this house every day from the morning until night. Recently the temperatures warmed up and we found tons of bees in the house. We needed to pay about 400 dollars and even though the company came out four times already, the bees are still around. We were wondering if you guys set up the camera on your computer. Maybe we could chat sometimes. Send email when you can.

Ikuko,

Hi. I want to talk to you about many things.

It is difficult now because you are working and I am trying in finish this house.

I am thinking about many things these days.

Maybe I am going crazy.

Soon there will be a time for you and I to meet and talk.

Recently I am sad and disappointed too about the email you and I sent.

This is why I really do not like email.

It is possible for many miscommunications.

Really want you to wait.

I like you very much.

You and I need to think about everyone around.

It is difficult to find a balance between the things you are supposed to do and the things you want to know.

You should know I am thinking about you and there will be a time to talk.
For know at least you and I can talk about many things online.

It is a little world for you and me.

Something you and I can enjoy and be happy.

There is no need to be crazy and think too much.

You like me and I like you and should enjoy.

Please do not think too much.

Everything is good.

Be happy and enjoy the time you and I can spend together.

I am going to eat cookies and drink tea from now.

Then back online to see if you send email.

Until then.

Ikuko,

Hi. I want to tell you many things but it is difficult in email.

Many miscommunications are possible.

Want to you wait until you and I get the chance to talk.

Then going to answer your questions.

Send email when you can.

Howie

4/12/2010
Yes for sure.

Now very genki.

Going to do something now.

4/12/2010
No, it is easy for me to look after baby anytime.

I am not a typical man.

Can do things other men cannot do.

Want you to understand about this.

4/12/2010
Hey it is a really important question.

Prefer to talk to you directly about all this and not in email.

It is difficult to find private time to talk with you.

The time will come for you and I to talk for sure.

For now you and I can talk other things online.

Tell me if this is good for you.

Going to drink tea and eat cookies then back online.

Send email when you can.

4/12/2010
Now I am working about 12 hours every day to finish the house.

I really want to teach English.

Today paid company about 400 dollars to get rid of bees.

Want to work again.

The house will be mostly finished this month.

I am going to begin teaching beginning of next month.

I want to see you more.

It is difficult in this neighborhood.

Maybe you and I could do language exchange at your house.

Would mean more time together to talk.

Send email and tell me what you think.

4/11/2010
Ikuko,

Hi. Yup I went to see the cherry blossoms today.

It was very beautiful.

I drank a lot of beer and ate a lot of food.

Then I went to sleep in the grass.

Really tired and going to sleep after sending this email.

I walked up the mountain pushing the stroller and carrying all the food and other things in my backpack.

I walked many miles today.

The room in the back took a couple of days to build.

It is not finished but good enough for laundry for now.

Tomorrow the bee guy is coming.

It will be raining.

I am planning to paint the walls upstairs.

I want to exchange email again with you tomorrow night.

I want to see you again.

Send email when you can.

Howie

4/11/2010
Ayumi,

Hi. Akiko and I took Shai to see the cherry blossoms today way up in the mountains. It was awesome. Pictures will be posted soon. Send email when you can.

Howie

4/11/2010
Hey girls. Really wanted to see both of you and eat oyatsu but not sure what it is. Actually we were not home from early this morning until the evening. We went to Yoshino to see the cherry blossoms. We walked and took the train in order to drink alcohol. Then the family came back to the house for dinner. Going to eat cookies and tea and then online again. Send email when you can.

4/10/2010
Ikuko,

Hi. I wanted to talk about many things.

Last night the Internet was not working.

Now is working with no problem.

I was able to finish the laundry room.

Really want to show you my work.

Today we are spending the day with the family.

Can send email tonight though.

Really impressed with your English.

Anyway, enjoy your day and talk tonight.

Send email when you can.

Howie

Nobumitsusan,

Hi. I want to apologize again for not writing sooner.

Hopefully your back and knees are much better now.

It will be nice to see you soon.

The last couple weeks were difficult.

My back was not good but needed to work on the house.

Then it was warm for a few days.

Me and Akiko discovered bees living in the house.

It is quite a problem.

Next week going to work on this.

The following week would be good to meet.

Please send email when you can.

Howie

4/9/2010
Linda,

Hi. I spent the last couple days working on the laundry room for Akiko. Trying to at least finish the outside framing and boards today. Supposed to get tons of rain on Monday. Tomorrow we are going up to the mountains to see the cherry blossoms. It is called hanami in Japanese which means flower viewing.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hanami

Then planning to work on the bees during the middle of the week as the temperatures will be much cooler. Hopefully you guys are doing well and no doubt keeping busy. Send email when you can.

Howie

4/9/2010
Actually not enough detail.

Going to cum now.

Good night.

Talk to you again.

Until then.

4/9/2010
Hi. I think you are sleeping.

Now really wet.

Want you to taste it.

Now I am really falling asleep.

I want you to think about me when you are in bed tonight.

I want you to touch yourself and feel good.

Meet tomorrow then.

Good night.

Talk to you again.

4/9/2010
Sleeping in the other room.

Because we are online now,
If we meet directly, see your eyes, and hug
You make me fall in love, even though I should not do.

4/9/2010
Yes but will try to be in front of the house.

Now many bees and it is not as easy to work there.

4/9/2010
Ayumi,

Hi. I am exhausted now. Been working on the house every day. Now working on the laundry room in the back for Akiko. We found bees in the attic of the house. It really sucks. There is honey dripping on the inside wall. Now trying to get rid of them. Anyway, drinking every night and enjoying my new friends and the neighborhood. Know you are gonna do good on your job. Maybe I can visit you when you get settled. Send email when you can.

Howie

4/9/2010
Ikuko,

Hi. I was thinking about you.

I was working on the back laundry room much of today.

Planning to work tomorrow on the back again.

If you come walk to the back of my house and visit.

Need to go to the building supply store in the afternoon.

I want to see you.

Going to read the other email you sent.

Howie

4/8/2010
For many years.

I like excitement and passion.

I am thinking about you.

Maybe better not to say more now unless you want.

4/8/2010
It is very distant.

I really enjoy sex and touching.

I am strange for my age.

Are you good to talk about these things.

4/8/2010
Maybe a bit lonely.

Feeling good if drinking wine.

Maybe easier to tell you many things.

Want to tell you something but too embarrassed.

Maybe you will not be happy about it now.

Not sure about your thinking.

4/8/2010
Maybe I cannot wait to touch you and kiss you.

Sometimes I think about you at night.

It feels good.

I want to know if you think about me an night.

I enjoy this time with you.

Waiting for your thoughts.

Actually they come to look at the line without calling. It was the same for us. They will call you when they need to come into your house to install the line. It will be very cool when you get the Internet soon.

4/8/2010
Yup. Many pictures. I waited for you outside tonight but it was not a good time for you.

I want to know what you would do if I kiss you.

Send email when you can.

4/8/2010
Actually I think about you a lot.

I really miss looking into your eyes.

It seems like we do not meet for many months even though only a few days.

I want to come to your house for nabe party soon.

I want to drink a lot.

Then I want to lost all inhibition and kiss you again.

Send email when you can.

4/8/2010
Ikuko,

Hi. I know we like each other.

You should not worry about this.

Maybe you are lonely in some way.

Maybe I am lonely in some way.

I spent many years unhappy.

I want to be happy

I want to be honest about feelings.

If you are not comfortable with this situation then it is not good.

If it is good for you then you and I should continue.

It is good feeling for you and me to see each other.

I think we should continue.

It can be our own little world.

It can make us happy.

Please do not worry about anything.

Enjoy the time together.

Send email when you can.

Howie

4/7/2010
Now I am really tired.

I am going to sleep.

I want you to dream about us alone together.

Then tomorrow I want to know the details of your dream.

Until then.

4/7/2010
Actually Akiko knows about us.

It is easy for anyone to see.

Maybe she can be more free to be alone.

Everyone is different with many needs and desires.

Now I want to see you and look into your eyes again.

4/7/2010
Actually I think about love recently.

Many levels exist for love.

Many people you love in different ways.

It is different for family and friends.

I can say now I want to see you more and more.

Yes it is difficult but it is a good feeling for both of us.

Really want to know your thinking.

4/7/2010
Recently we became like boyfriend and girlfriend.

It is nice for sure.

4/7/2010
Hi. I read your email from before.

I agree with you.

This is exciting.

Recently I am thinking about you throughout the day.

You asked about today.

Need to take out a tree because of the bees.

Then I worked on the front yard.

Then I washed the wall in the back of the house.

I am preparing to build a new room.

Then I sprayed the bees with a chemical.

Tell me about your day.

Now drinking and waiting for you to send email again.

4/7/2010
Linda,

Hi. Me and Akiko thought there was a roof leak which turns out to honey seeping in through the ceiling. It warmed up the other day and all the bees residing in the roof woke up and were all over the yard. They want about $500 to come out. Today was not warm and the bees were sleeping. Then I took off the outside wood and sprayed. Should be interesting to see what transpires when it warms up again this week. More house fun. Send email when you can.

Howie

4/6/2010
Ikuko,

Hi. I am very passionate person anytime.

I can feel many things anytime.

It is difficult for me in this world.

Many people cannot understand me for sure.

My passion level is very high and different from others.

Now I am thinking about you a lot during the day.

I am trying to control my feelings but cannot.

Please try to understand.

Do not want to be awful.

Simply want to be honest with you.

Going to sleep now and thinking about you.

Want to see you.

Send email and I can read in the morning.

Talk to you again.

Howie

4/6/2010
Hi. I want to be straight with you.

I know I am married.

It is difficult for me to control feelings.

It is same for me.

Your eyes are very beautiful.

You are a very pretty woman

You make me crazy when we meet.

Please do not think I am an awful person now.

I am simply feeling things for you.

Need to sleep soon.

Now almost 24 hours awake and a lot of work today.

Want to see you.

Send email when you can.

Maybe going to sleep now.

Thinking about you.

Talk to you again.

4/6/2010
Ikuko,

Hi. I woke up today at 2:30 am.

Shai was not feeling well.

Akiko and I spent an hour making him feel better and sleep again.

Then we ate breakfast.

At around 4:00 am began painting.

Then I waited for a long time on the veranda with my camera waiting for the sunrise.

It was very beautiful.

I thought about you.

I think you would enjoy watching the sunrise together for sure.

Then I made over 100 kg of concrete in the back.

Then I was painting again.

Then found bees in the house.

It is awful for me.

Then my back was problem again.

Maybe if you touch my back it is better.

I am wondering if you are good for working on my back.

I can give you something back you want if you do this.

I am not sure where you can do this to me if you want.

I was drinking a lot tonight.

Send email when you can.

Howie

4/6/2010
Mayumi,

Hi. I am drunk now. Akiko is sleeping on the couch. The BEE problem sucks. Do not want fucking bees in the house. It sucks. This house is a piece of shit but I like the house anyway, and I like the neighborhood and I really like my new friends like you and Ikuko. Even with all the problems, I can be happy in this place. Send email when you can.

Howie

4/6/2010
Linda,

Hi. Me and Akiko found bees in the house. Yuk. Send email when you can.

4/5/2010
Actually I am still waiting for you to answer the question directly.

Want to know what you feel about me now.

4/5/2010
Ikuko,

Hi. Today was kind of difficult.

Tonight drinking a full bottle of wine.

Was working outside in the back and front.

Then working on the hallway upstairs

My back is not good again but kept working until the evening.

I want to finish the house projects.

I want to see you and talk with you.

I want you to ask any question about me if you want.

Even a very personal question is good.

Send email when you can.

Howie

4/5/2010

Mayumi,

Hi. I want to send email tonight. Nothing much happening. Been working on the house as usual. Really tired though. Akiko is looking after Shai. He is still not feeling good. Send email when you can.

Howie

4/5/2010
Valerie,

Hi. I am really happy you told me about this. No news about it in Japan. Was working on the house and not online though. I am relieved you are fine of course. Yeah totally understand about the coolness factor and scary thingy. Spent this week trying to work on the house even with back problems. Might be finished with most of the projects this month but not sure. Let me know if you can chat soon. It would really reduce the distance between us. Your brother is really sick this week with a fever and some kind of virus. A bit better tonight though. Akiko will be getting a job soon. She kinda reached her limit being home all the time. I love you and miss you. Send email when you can.

Dad

4/4/2010
Ikuko. Hi I really really really really enjoyed seeing you and talking with you today. I know you need to work tomorrow but hopefully you can find the time to send a long email when you return home. Until then. Howie

4/3/2010
Linda,

Hi. I am getting ready to work on the house as usual but wanted to give you an update. Shai is much better today. It is supposed to get warmer this week and this should make a difference. Akiko really wants to work and will most like begin looking for a job within the next couple weeks. No doubt you are enjoying the warm SD temperatures. There is a chance we might not be able to chat tomorrow. Send email when you can.

Howie

4/3/2010
Ikuko,

Hi. I am actually beginning to get back to normal after spending the last couple days reflecting and thinking.

My back continues to be a problem though.

Now Shai is not feeling well and much of my attention is going to him.

Akiko and I were able to talk about many things and is seems mostly she wants to be more independent.

She wants to go out and work full time.

She is not the type who likes to depend on anyone.

Actually I am the same but like it if someone wants to depend on me.

With other girlfriends many of them depended on my for many things.

I worked well because of same thinking.

Akiko likes to be alone and thinks much differently.

We are going to see if things get better once she is working again.

I am going to stay and beginning next week going to really work towards getting the house finished, especially the classroom.

Many changes coming.

Send email when you can.

Howie

4/3/2010
Ayumi,

Hi. Quite a week this was. Shai is really sick now. Akiko and I took him to be checked and it turned out he has some type of virus. He threw up on me and I thought it would be a good idea to take this opportunity to send email. We gave him a fever reducer and other stuff now and hopefully he will feel much better tomorrow. Really not trying to be picky but you did not send anything the other day. Turned fifty now. Send email when you can.

Howie

4/3/2010
Ikuko. Hi. I made it through the last couple days. Spent a lot of time reflecting and thinking. Now Shai is very sick. Akiko and I took him to get checked today and he has a virus. He has been running a fever and he threw up on me which is really unusual. Maybe he will be a little better tomorrow. Anyway, hopefully you are both doing well. Already know the dude returned home this weekend. Please say hi to him. Been thinking of you both and miss talking to you. Planning to do some work outside tomorrow. It would be nice to talk again. Send email when you can. Howie

4/2/2010
Linda,

Hi. I turned fifty and spent the day with Akiko and Shai at home. Posted about it on my site. Send email when you can.

Howie

4/1/2010 7:35 am
Valerie,

Hi. I want you to be the last email I send before turning fifty in about thirty minutes. I am drunk to get through this time. I want you to know you are in my thoughts all the time. You cannot possibly know your importance to me. Anytime I am worrying about and hoping you and I can be together again as a family. I am there for you anytime. You need to always know this. I love you and miss you very much. Send email when you can.

Love,

Dad

4/1/2010
Ikuko,

Hi. I am going to be fifty from tomorrow. I am taking a day to be alone. It is difficult time for me. You are an incredible woman. I can respect you. I am going to be off the Internet for a day. Please understand. Then you and I can meet and talk again. Please wait for me. I want you to dream of beautiful things. Good night. Talk to you again.

Howie

4/1/2010
Hi. I need to be with someone who wants to be with me very much. I was in relationships before where my girlfriend gave me the same love and passion I gave to them. Akiko cannot give to me and I am feeling very alone in Japan and in this situation. It is very difficult for me. Akiko cannot understand my needs because her personality is very different. I cannot feel accepted from her and from her family. Now I am really gaijin and it is sad. Every night I am drinking a lot. It is strange for me. Before not drinking alcohol because happy. Now drinking to feel better. It is not good. Everything seems unfair now but still can find happiness. Going to eat more now and look for you to send email again.

4/1/2010
Now Akiko agrees with me leaving for a few months. Going to eat more from now. Will look for you to send email later tonight.

4/1/2010
Again I really do not want to leave. Going to leave only if Akiko really wants to be alone. A lot of thinking now.

4/1/2010
Actually if I were to go then going to send most money back. The house will be almost perfect before leaving because worry about them anytime. Again this is only talking now and no decision.

4/1/2010
Actually I really do not want to go. Akiko anytime talks about being alone. It is very sad for me. Now very happy in this house and this neighborhood. There is no decision only talking now.

4/1/2010
Actually I want to go where there is a lot passion. I can easily get a job in China or Thailand but thinking about South America. Everything is crazy now. It is difficult to know the best decision. I want everyone to be happy. Send email if you can.

4/1/2010
Hi. Maybe for a few months and then coming back. It is for Akiko. Anytime she likes to be alone. If I am teaching abroad then she can really be alone and see if she is happy. Then it means she is better to be single. It is my idea now. It is a difficult decision. I really do not want to leave. Going to think a lot this weekend. Now drinking next bottle. Waiting for you to talk. Send email when you can.

4/1/2010
Ikuko,

Hi. I am drinking a lot tonight and very long conversation with Akiko. Maybe I am going to leave and teach abroad for a few months. We are going to wait to make the school in the house until we can make a decision. Now my English site is very famous and I can use it as a base to get a good job abroad. I need to finish the house before leaving though. I am going to see if you send email tonight. Send email when you can.

Howie

4/1/2010
Hey Girl. Really enjoyed talking with you too. Much nicer to actually meet though. No plan but a lot of thinking now. Going to eat and drink soon. Going to try and send longer email to you tonight if not drunk. Last night was a couple bottles and probably same tonight. Keep smiling. Send email when you can.

4/1/2010
Marilyn,



Hi. I really need you to do a favor for me and Akiko. Now we are online and can contact everyone except our friend Paula. She does not use the computer. You met her when you went to the baby shower. Please call her for us at 589-5100.



I want you to tell her the following.



We apologize for not contacting her over the last few months. Tell her we went through a very difficult time and in fact several times I almost returned home. We will send our address next month and be in more constant contact.



Thank you very much for doing this for us. Send email when you can.



Howie, Akiko

4/1/2010
Hey Girls. I am planning to stay in for the next couple days. Want to be alone and think. Hopefully you both understand. Will be online tonight but taking tomorrow off the computer. Send email when you can.

4/1/2010

3/31/2010
Talking with you makes me happy. I want to know you more.

3/31/2010
Yes I am drunk but can still keep normal thinking. I am touched because of you and everything you went through. I think you are very strong and very nice. I am impressed with you. I want to see you and know more about you. I am going to be there for you anytime. You are very nice.

3/31/2010
Hey I like you too a lot. I know you think I am very strange. I am feeling many things anytime. I am happy you are thinking good thoughts about me anytime. I want to see you again.

3/31/2010
Hi. I am drinking alone now. Listening to many different videos. Thinking about you and your many problems. I can understand you and know you went through so much. Actually I went through a lot too and carry many things with me. It is very difficult for me but anytime trying to move forward and be happy. I can understand you.

3/31/2010
Actually I am very sorry about my talking. There is a lot you do not know. I am very passionate and it is very difficult for me to control feelings. Please do not think bad things about me. I want to be good but many needs. This world is a difficult place for me anytime. Please try to understand. Waiting for you to send email again.

3/31/2010
Actually I was not too drunk. I wanted to kiss you and touch you. I knew my actions during the party. I like you very much. Please understand about this.

3/31/2010
Maybe you think I was too drunk to remember. Then maybe you are not happy. I can remember you from the nabe party. I wanted you to know this.

3/31/2010
Hi. I want you to know the night of the nabe party I remember kissing you and touching your feet. Please do not think I could forgot about this. I cannot remember coming home. I remember you though.

3/31/2010
Ikuko,

Hi. I want to answer some of your questions.

The holiday is called Passover.

Was chatting with friends in SD and was with them during dinner.

It was really nice.

Actually thinking about going back to SD but probably will not happen.

I am happy in this house even though many problems.

I want to finish everything and spend more time on the Internet and talking with friends.

Now my back is getting better and I can begin working again.

Today was doing some easy projects.

Anyway dinner will be ready soon.

Going to drink wine as usual.

Hopefully things are going good for you.

Send email when you can.

Howie

3/30/2010
Ikuko,

Hi. I was chatting with friends in SD today.

It was an important religious holiday and we were drinking wine from early this morning.

Then Akiko and I went to a local park and when I came home my back was not good again.

I went to sleep for the afternoon.

I know you ended your relationship this week and you are doing a lot of thinking.

Let me know if you need to talk.

I am thinking about a lot recently.

I am trying to make decisions about many things.

Maybe this weekend we can all meet and talk.

I am going to be online for a little while but now finished another bottle of wine and maybe will be sleeping soon.

I would like you to send email though.

It is nice to read your email anytime.

Keep laughing and be happy.

Send email when you can.

Howie

3/29/2010
Ikuko,

Hi. I read your email. I can meet you and talk to you if you are sad and need someone to talk with. My back is not good tonight. I am very stubborn and usually wait to get better. Tonight I drank a lot of wine but still my back is not good. Now difficult to sit. Anyway, try to be happy. I am thinking about you. The house is not warm but I am looking for your email. Maybe too drunk and my email is strange. Maybe I can meet you tomorrow. Send email again if you can.

Howie

3/29/2010
Ikuko. Hi. I read your email and want to explain a little to you. I enjoy talking with you and will continue to meet you and talk when possible. Although many of my friends are in Japan, they are spread throughout the country. I enjoy talking and happy to meet you. Akiko knows I enjoy talking and it is not a problem for her. Really no need for you to worry. Talk to you again. Howie

3/29/2010
Good evening girls. We spent the entire afternoon at the hyakin. Really bought a lot. Anyway, my back is really not good and planning to stay in this week and spend time on the computer and take some time from working on the house. Now on my way to getting drunk. Hopefully you both are staying warm. It was freaking snowing on the way home from shopping. Send email when you can. Howie

3/28/2010
Ikuko,

Hi. I really cannot find the correct words to say to you.

Since I met you already I can feel very close to you and after last night I can understand more.

You went through many problems.

I know these problems affected you very much and there is no way to completely understand.

Even though you went through many difficult times, you can still find a way to laugh and smile.

I really respect this about you.

I agree with you completely that Shai should be the focus of any decision between me and Akiko.

I am not sure which decision we will make but we will take time to think.

I am very happy you and I met and I want to spend a lot of time talking with you.

I want to talk about many things.

Send email when you can.

Howie

3/27/2010
Ikuko,

Hi. I want to see you this afternoon. Akiko is making breakfast now. I was typing a long email to you when you sent this. See you in the afternoon. Until then.

Howie

3/27/2010
Hi. I want to apologize and thank both of you very much for tonight. I think Akiko and I will split up because of tonight. I am sleeping separate room. I am very sad but cannot handle the situation with her and the family anymore. I would like to meet you again and talk when you find the time. Talk to you again.

3/27/2010
Ikuko,

Hi. I enjoyed talking with you today. I am not going to be outside later this afternoon. My back seems to be getting worse and I am going to try and stay warm. I am hoping to see you again tomorrow. If you can find the time, maybe you and I can exchange email tonight. You can ask me many questions. Send email to my computer if you can be online tonight. Talk to you again.

Howie,

3/26/2010
Ikuko,

Hi. I like the pictures you sent. I am going to answer all your questions but I want to see you. I am working in the house again tomorrow but want to know when you plan to come to my neighborhood. Then I can come outside and talk with you. Send email when you can.

Howie

3/25/2010
Ayumi,

Hi. I am drinking tonight again. I though it would be better to send you email before getting drunk and tired. Anyway, I know you are going to do good at your new job. This property is taking a lot of time but looking really good. We went to a nabe party the other night. The pictures are on this page at the end.

http://picasaweb.google.com/FunEasyEnglish.com/JapanPictures1#

I was completely drunk. You can see me and a girl in a picture. This is the girl who likes me. Anyway, much to talk about. Send email when you get settled. Talk to you again.

Howie

3/24/2010
Ikuko,

I get up very early every day.

I work after breakfast until night.

I take time only for lunch and then back to work.

I like your family very much.

Sometimes I am feeling lonely in Japan.

I was happy at your house to be with family.

I want to go to your house again.

Please tell me you thinking about the pictures when you can.

Ikuko,

Hi. I can understand your English perfectly. You are very good. I want to answer your questions when I meet you again. I was painting but no more paint. I need to go to konan again and purchase more paint. I drank a bottle of wine. I watched a Japanese drama called Orange Days. It is a love story about a girl who cannot listen to anything because her ears are not good. It was a very nice story. I was thinking about you today. It was raining today and I really enjoy listening to the sound of the rain. Please send email if you are still online. I looked at your picture tonight. Talk to you again.

Francesco,

Hi. There really was no need for all this nasty email. You would be able make a much better situation if your initial email was not as strong as it was. In any event, my wife and I talked about it again and really do not want you to be in a difficult situation. The fact is we are not willing to refund any money unless you provide verifiable proof of your repair estimates and expenditures. We are waiting for you to send this information. Thanks.

Howie and Akiko Hayman

Ikuko,

Hi. Yes I get up very early every day. Many things to do in the house. I am very tired today from working in the neighbors yard. Today is painting day and then wine and Internet tonight. I am looking forward to your emails tonight when you return home from work. I enjoy talking with you very much. Tonight you and I can communicate more. Until then.

Valerie,

Hi. I was hoping you were going to send email about the truck. Anyway, you can get all the paperwork at the condo from the dude. If you do this it needs to be soon. Make sure you register the truck in your name then can cancel the insurance. Akiko and I will be moving stuff to the house. No regular Internet access from today. I love you and miss you very much. Send email when you can.

Love,

Dad

Valerie,

Hi. Me and Akiko will be moving to the house next week. Been riding the bike four miles each way to the house almost every day to finish everything up as quickly as possible. Although not finished, the kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom are now all sparkling and ready for us to move in. We might need to wait a month before we can get Internet due to the backlog. Might see if we can access the Internet from the library. Either way communication might be difficult the next few weeks. We were able to get cell phones though. Going to send you the information soon. I love you and miss you very much. Send email when you can.

Love,

Dad

Nobumitsusan,

Hi. I want to apologize for not writing to you sooner.

I want to thank you for your offer.

We cannot join you for dinner this time because there is nobody to watch the baby now.

Me and Akiko will be moving to the new house on the 26th of this month.

After we move it will be easier to meet.

Send email when you can.

Valerie,

Hi. We wanted to let you know the house was officially purchased today. Me and Akiko needed to get the numbers from the electric meter and rode our bikes four miles each way in forty degree temperatures in the pouring rain with much of the stuff we purchased for working on the house. It pretty much sucked but no choice. From tomorrow going to being working on the house. I love you and miss you very much. Send email when you can.

Love,

Dad

Marilyn,

Hi. I was pretty sure someone already bought the property and the people looking now could be renters. If a property goes into escrow they can still take back up offers but the owner cannot accept the offers unless the transaction does not go through. Akiko and I can begin working on the new house from next week. We like a television show in the United States. We cannot watch it in Japan. We want to know if you could possible tape it for us. Send email when you can.

Valerie,

Hi. I think things will settle from now. Everyone pretty much said their thinking and nothing more to talk about. Can begin working on the house from next week. Tons of projects for sure. You are doing really good at your job and I am very proud of you. Even with everything you went through, you turned out to be a beautiful young woman and a wonderful person. Anytime I tell friends about you it is nice to say you are intelligent, well mannered, no drugs and lots of other nice things. Really hoping you can find a nice place to chat with me and Akiko. Pretty sure you can use Internet at the Mission Trails Visitor Center library. Would be really nice. I love you and miss you very much. Send email when you can.

Love,

Dad

Linda,

Hi. I am assuming the stuff making you sleepy is for your hair. Really hoping you will be feeling better soon. Thanks you very much for doing the taping of the show. We continue to work on different options but nothing seems to work. Japan is really not warm now. Pretty much in the forties during the day and the thirties at night. Japanese homes really suck and the rooms are not warmed up except for the room you are using. This means walking through a hallway and using a bathroom which are not warm. Really looking forward to begin working on the house next week. Many projects for sure. Wondering if you guys ended up getting a video camera. Sure would be nice to see your smiling faces and speak English again. Akiko and I speak English but I need to speak Japanese every day. Kind of tiring. Anyway, Shai wants to see you again. Pretty sure he is trying to say your name. More incentive to get the camera. Send email when you can.

Linda,

Hi. Akiko and I made it through New Years after tons of fighting the last month. The sister is getting progressively worse mentally and is angry much of the time. The other day she threw the thermos we bought for Shai. It smashed 6 windows of an interior door in the kitchen. Things seem to be better now but really looking forward to getting out of this place and into the new house. New Years Eve was spent home eating, drinking, and watching television. New Years day the three of us went to the famous park and temples. At night we needed to go to a cousins house who nobody likes for dinner. This Monday pretty much everyone goes back to work and can relax more in this house. Kinda sucks everyone was sick for your New Years. If you guys get a camera then we can chat and fill in the no shows. We really miss you guys and talk about you often. Hopefully things go good with the school and we can eventually move back home. Send email when you can.
