4 Jun

Today was my youngest two daughters’ 運動会 (Sports Day Event) at their Junior High School.
It was originally scheduled for last Saturday, but was postponed until today because it rained last Saturday. (I wrote about it on an earlier post. Click here to read it.)

I wasn’t able to attend their 運動会 (Sports Day Event) because I had to work…but my wife went and videotaped it. So I’ll be able to watch it.

Today is also the 20th anniversary of the 六四天安門事件 (4 June 1989 Tiananmen Square protests) in 天安門広場 (Tiananmen Square) in China.

And tomorrow will be my oldest daughter’s High School 運動会 (Sports Day event).

Also tomorrow is the 57th birthday of Nicko McBrain.
Certainly you know that Nicko McBrain is the drummer for the British heavy metal band Iron Maiden!

      You go to many music festivals, don’t you?

      Actually I have never been to a music festival. But they have become popular in Japan in recent years.

      Actually, he’s 57.

      But, yes, Maiden are still going strong.

      Did you buy their new DVD?

    I was still in High School when the Tiananmen Square Protest happened. Till today they still wonder who was the man that climbed that tank. Did your daughters had great time at Sports Day? Won anything? Hopefully tomorrow’s event will be a nice sunny day for your oldest daughter. What event did your daughters join at Sports Day?
    First time I saw Iron Maiden’s album it was the mascot itself, i actually love it, the artwork itself 🙂 the mummified mascot.

      Yes, my daughters had nice Sports Day events. Thanks.
      They ran in some races and a few other events.

      Do you like Iron Maiden?

        Grew up listening to Iron Maiden and many other heavy metal bands thats why I recognised some of those videos you posted in your previous blogs. But yep I like Iron Maiden.

        You have good taste in music!
        Do you have a favorite Iron Maiden song?

        I like “The Trooper“, “Flight Of Icarius“, “Wasted Years“, “The Number Of The Beast“, “Aces High“, “Two Minutes To Midnight“, etc…
