Happy Star Wars Day!
I’m dedicating this year’s May The 4th Be With You to our dear Covid 19 and the evil pandemic empire… Grrr!
We haven’t missed a May The 4th in a long time at TVTA, and no frightening us with sorcerer’s ways and sad devotion to ancient religions is gonna stop us now (cough, cough – sorry Lord Vader).
Vintage mates, your humble editor has been flat out working long shifts in the danger zone, understaffed, underpaid, at times undernourished, and for sure under the spreading chestnut tree!
Yet, TVTA shall not fail to deliver some Star Wars Day joy today… even if we have to steal the Millenium Falcon and smuggle some joy through the Kessel system (or at least raid our archives for Millenium Falcon pics and imagine we’re smuggling)!
“If not joy, then let there be cheese; and if cheese be not considered a joy, then we are poorer than we imagined” ancient proverb
And so there, for it is said, and now we say it, by the power of Wooof our intrepid office cat, this year’s May The 4th post is not only virus free (and sushi free) but comes with ample pics of the Millenium Falcon!!
As my 4th wife said about me before signing the divorce papers – “He may not look like much but he’s got it where it counts.” And as Wooof’s lady cat friends say when he rolls into TVTA town in his kitty Ferrari Death Star MK IV – “That’s no moon… it’s Woof the cat!”
Enough now! On with the show!
Millenium Falcon… we love you!! 🧡💛💚💙💜💘
And finally, a TVTA May The 4th tradition…
Will this post be sushi-free?
yes, but maybe not chestnut free…
“Under the spreading chestnut tree
I sold you and you sold me:
There lie they, and here lie we
Under the spreading chestnut tree.”
“Underneath the spreading chestnut tree
I loved him and he loved me
There I used to sit up on his knee
‘Neath the spreading chestnut tree”
