Shun goes cowboy

Shun goes cowboy

Shun from Japan while in Texas turns cowboy.  Photographs at the beginning from the Texas Tourist Welcome Center on I-30 coming from Arkansas.  Then photographs from the restaurant Texas Land and Cattle.  Trying on cowboy hats at Shephlers western wear.    

Background to Shun’s Texas visit:
Japanese Kentucky Colonel Shun arrives in the USA to deliver a donation check in the amount of $13,600.  This donation is for the victims of the tornados that hit Moore, Oklahoma.  The Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels put out a call for donations and Colonel Shun passed it on to the people of Japan.

The $13,600 was donated by people all across Japan, with Colonel Shun adding 10% of what each person donated.  The people of Japan will never forget Operation Tomadochi when the United States aided and assisted the victims of the 11 March, 2011 earthquake tsunami.  

The Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels will pass this donation on with additional funds to the Salvation Army in Moore, Oklahoma.

To the people of Japan and Colonel Shun:  “Domo arigato gozaimasu.”
