Everyone Needs a Hobby, I Guess

In the Japanese city of Iga, this past week was the International Ninja Festival. I found this article about it while reading the online newspapers this morning. People from all over dress as ninjas, search for hidden life sized ninja dummies, watch martial arts demonstrations, and go to the local ninja museum. Even the dogs get into it!

Hmm, this dog looks a bit like my Barney. I've noticed that Barney spends a lot of time around our shed in the backyard. I'll have to check and make sure he doesn't have a stash of weapons back there.

For the record, though, pirates are still way cooler than ninjas!
