tiger's nest

A Kyoto friend sent a late New Year's card to my mother. She annotated her collage image of a tiger with messages and drawings. She writes that her younger daughter, now 40 and a doctor, is the head of a fan cheering group for the Hanshin Tigers, a beleaguered but beloved baseball team. She also writes that their house is a "tiger's nest" (which reminds me that she and her husband last year made a trip to Bhutan) and was featured in an NHK documentary.
