Let us give thanks

Well, that time of year has arrived once again. And like every year, I have much to be thankful for. For starters, 2018 started off on a serious note for me. My year-end physical in 2017 found something that caused the doctor some concern and for me, quite a few restless nights. But after numerous tests and @ 4 months of waiting, it was determined that the issue in question wasn't really that serious at all. Phew!

Even though we don't have a SW movie next month, I was glad we did get one this year at least, and I'm very glad people who refused to see it in theaters are giving it a chance on the secondary market, are enjoying it, and questioning why they didn't see it in the theaters. It's also so nice to hear it's doing quite well as far as DVD/Blu-Ray sales are going. Now, if only they would announce a sequel...

I'm extremely thankful for all the SW-goodness we're to get NEXT year with the return of "The Clone Wars", the opening of "Galaxy's Edge" at the Disney parks, the next Star Wars Celebration will be held in my home state, this year's announcement we'll be getting the Cassian Andor and "The Mandalorian" series for Disney's streaming service, and of course, the release of Episode IX next December.

I'm grateful we have "Resistance" to watch on T.V. now, and I'd be extremely remiss if I didn't mention Nick, Mark, Andrew, & Joel at Empire Tattoo in Itasca, who keep giving me the best Star Wars tattoos this side of Mos Eisley. Thanks also to Tom Spina and everyone at Tom Spina Designs & Regal Robot who keep giving us updates on all the cool and must-have stuff they’re putting out for the avid SW collector.

I'm thankful for all my friends with whom I can share all this Star Wars goodness with. People like Eric Pfeifer and Chris Seidelman who have helped me get some nice additions to my collection. If you guys are reading this, I just want to say "thanks much!" and wish you and your families all the best this holiday season. My life is made all the more special just by knowing great people like yourselves.

Last, but certainly not least, I'm thankful to be able to continue to write for this site, and in this way, get to interact with all of you who come back week after week to read what each of us have to say. Thanks to our leader and founder, Bill Cable, who continues to post my nonsensical ravings, and it's an honor to work alongside him, Beedo, Tresob, and everyone else.

So before the turkey coma sets in, I just want to wish everyone from the core worlds to the outer rim territories, a very happy and healthy Thanksgiving, and all the best for the upcoming holiday season. May the Force be with you (and your families) always!
