Some Star Wars History

Peter Mayhew, the actor who played Chewbacca in the original Star Wars films, has sent around some behind-the-scenes photos of the original cast during the shooting of the films. They’re funny, and fascinating, and it’s amazing to see how young everyone looks. I’m sure the shooting process was hard work — and hot — but it looks like the actors and director found some time to enjoy themselves.

I love it when some previously unknown photos like this finally see the light of day, and you get a revealing glimpse at something as well known and beloved as Star Wars.


The Penny Chronicles

My name is Penny.

IMG_1676The Young Master was here. The Wrestler was here, too. But now they are gone.

Kasey and I like it when the Young Master and the Wrestler are here. They play with us and pet us and scratch us behind the ear. And, they leave food where we can get it. Kasey and I roam the house and let our noses be our guides, because there is always something to lick, chew, or gobble when the Young Master and the Wrestler are back as part of the pack. They even give us food from the table. The old boring guy never does that! What is his problem?

So, Kasey and I like it when the Young Master and the Wrestler are around. When they leave we are sad, and a lot hungrier, but it means we have the Leader all to ourselves again. That is a good thing, too.
