My Thoughts on Harrison…Both Our Host and Ford

According to every website known to man, it has been reported that Our Host Harrison has separated from his wife.  After 18 years of marriage, I can’t imagine the devastation they must be facing.  My prayers go out to him, his wife and the kids.

Second, there’s something I HAD to post today.  I wanted to write about my love for Star Wars.  For as long as I can remember, I’ve had a special place in my heart for the original epic trilogy.  I wanted and R2D2 and an ewok.  I mastered my Chewbacca growl.  I’ve often thought I could vacation on the planet Hoth if I had a tomtom to carry me around in the frigid environment.  Even though Luke was a bit whiny and definitely an ugly crier, I always rooted for him.

And then there was Han.  I was smitten when he caught up with the rebel alliance and saved the day in the Millennium Falcon.

Plus, he speaks my love language — sarcasm.

Here’s to you my dear Han Solo.  May the 4th be with you.

I just read this to Ryan. Who knew we could love you more? But we do!

I had a bad case of the warmies for Han myself 🙂
As for the Harrison’s, it’s tragic when a family splits up. If they cannot find a way to reconcile, I hope they will be able to put their differences aside and always focus on being loving and mutually supportive parents.

When Catha tweeted this out it caught the eye of this star wars fan. Excellent write up, however, I’d be remiss if I didn’t point out an error. There is no such thing as a tomtom. There is a such thing as a tan-tan though 🙂 Consider this my Star Wars day gift to you.

May the fourth be with you, but beware, for tomorrow is Revenge of the Fifth!

Today one of my 3rd grade students (I’m a school librarian and technology teacher) asked “Do you know what day it is?” I said “Friday” but thought for sure he would say “My birthday” (elementary kids HAVE to inform you it’s their birthday — sometimes 2 or 3 weeks ahead of time, even.). Instead, his answer was “May the 4th be with you.” (Get it? May the Force be with you said with a lisp?) Pretty great for a third grader, I thought, especially one who barely recognized his letters in first grade!!
