On her Facebook page Kiriya has announced the death if Finch. I feel lucky that I actually saw him in the car that picked Kiriya up.

It's nice when the expected actually happens. My plans for next year has changed.
I was planning on only going to Osaka, Takarazuka, and Kyoto. No Tokyo. Now the Flower troupe will be in Tokyo during that time. Sigh....add hundreds of dollars to my plans to see Asumi as top star if I can get tickets to the production.
Happy for her. I'm sure she'll be great.

Tokyo got the Olympics for 2020. Who else hopes for a Takarazuka revue in the opening ceremonies?

Just spent the weekend in Vancouver, WA for a half marathon while my partner spent the time photographing waterfalls in the Columbia gorge.
On the way home we have to stop at Powells's Books in Portland. A very Big bookstore. They were having a 20%off sale on Japanese fiction. I was looking through the books snd one caught my eye. Spring Snow. It took a few seconds then Oh!!! 春の雪!!!! I bought it and will be imagining Asumi Rio as the lead while reading it.

Today is my 60th birthday. Finished a 15 k (9.3 mi) race in 2:45. Not bad. Still want to be faster. My partner did it with me. This was the longest distance she's ever done. She only whined the last 2 miles.
Spending the rest of the day watching Takarazuka. My favorite things.

I really like this show. The staging is impressive and Ototsuki was really in fine form.
I also liked Gold Spark. Of course, when it's sung it's actually 6 syllables, gorudo supaku (ゴルド スパく). There was a couple of weird things but over all very sparkly.
Loved the tuxedo dance. I like that top star retirements bring out more complicated moves.
There were quite a few people with tears in their eyes during the diet,
In Osaka now. Tomorrow Streak of Light

Here I am at the Portland airport starting my journey to Japan. I'm so excited. I get to be a tourist until Wed when my first performance of Jin happens.
Sky tree here I come. Have I mentioned that I don't like heights?

Finished in 3:59:32. Wanted to improve my time but it rained all 4 hours.
Why am I doing this? My mother did a marathon in her 60's. My goal is to do a marathon by time I'm 65. That gives me 5 years do get that done.
