I really didn't expect to see a pair of ducks eating seed on our bannister! They stuck around for a couple of hours too!
I splurged today, on an electronic dictionary. I've continued to study Japanese for over a year now, and will stick with it. A good J-E dictionary and a kanji dictionary are way too heavy to carry around, especially when on public transport and suffering chronic pain anyway. I'd put the decision of for many months (at least 6 months), and am glad I did! The exchange rate is quite good for us at the moment! A review is inevitable once it arrives when I figure out the menus (which are, of course, in Japanese).
