May the 4th Be With You

I'll never forget the time my father drove my brother and I to a theatre in Hamilton, and all three of us watched some new movie called Star Wars for the very first time. From that very first scene, with the Imperial starship flying overhead for what seemed liked forever, I was hooked.

And darn those little Star Wars geeks clone armies, but they've chosen their very own (unofficial) day to celebrate!

As much as I've always enjoyed the Star Wars movies (and have mostly forgiven George "Big L" Lucas for later foisting Jar Jar Binks on us), I've already been celebrating May 4th for twenty-seven years straight, but for a reason far, far away from the movies.

As of today, Wendy and I have been married for twenty-seven years, and all the clichés about time flying, where did the time go, etc. are all bulls-eye accurate. Wendy and I have had many adventures, including graduating from college together (photo evidence provided), and through all of the ups, downs, triumphs, failures, hopes, dreams, and so on, I'm amazed and grateful to have shared it all with such an incredible woman.

So, for the rest of the world, happy Star Wars day, and May the Fourth be with you. But for my beloved wife and I, it's

Happy Anniversary!
