It's my kid brother's business' grand opening today.
September 22, 2017 10:57pm CST
It rained this very early morning. I messaged my brother that it is blessings from Above since today is the grand opening of his business. They are having the motorcade right now. I and my son went to the city proper to buy this paw-waving cat, the Maneki Neco, an item thought of as attracting good luck. Here at home, we have the Buddha, the green frog with a coin in its mouth, and our own paw-waving cat. The one I bought is solar - powered, which I previously said it was for the digital clock but my son corrected me. I will be gone for 2 hours because the blessings will be at 3pm. See you all later my friends.

Maneki neko is a Japanese custom. It means "inviting cat" and supposedly invites money to your business. Also some businesses have a tanuki, a raccoon with a large belly. Most businesses at their grand opening have huge round flower arrangements that other businesses send them for welcoming them to the business community.

cycle house. no, i don't think the business will flourish mainly because of the charms. my brother is a hardworking man and he does this for his kids. he is a graduate of management course, has 2 MBA's and he thought about this business for months before doing it.
