ShowaGaijinCharity Event 平成23年４月２日 I had a chance to attend an event last night called "The Showa Gaijin 5th Occasional Party" - host by a bunch of old fogies who I am honored to be allowed to associate with. As the name implies, showa gaijin are foreigners who have been living here since the Showa Era, which is at least 24 years ago. The event was a fundraiser to support a helicopter team deliver supplies to disaster stricken areas which have not yet been reached. I took a big stack of Sundogs books with me and sold them on the honor system. Thanks everybody who bought a book! It was a great event!
