‘Star Wars:The Approaching Storm’ – Chapter 15 (Part 6)

Okay, it’s Monday and I’m really starting to get caught up on things and feel as though my life is starting to come back in to order.  At least in a way it is.  I pretty much had my stuff together to start new classes today.  My students seem pretty well behaved, but it’s hard to say as the first day is always the “grace period” as I like to refer to it.  We’ll have to see what they are like over the next few weeks as that is a sign as to how they will really do.  I almost hate this part of the quarter because I know I’m sizing up my students and my students are sizing me up.  It is kind of odd and we all seem to be just in a weird state of affairs.  But, hey, we all seem to get by when it matters most.  I got done with classes today and went home as soon as I could so I could help my wife and my son baking cookies for Boy Scouts tonight.  It was part of an assignment and we had a whole bunch of fun doing this with him.

I do have good news, though.  It seems as though our problems between Citi Financial and Mark’s Auto have been solved.  I say that because we called Mark’s Auto today to make sure they got their payment from Citi and they said they already received it from them.  Then when we got the mail this evening, we had a statement from Citi and our first payment is due on Thanksgiving.  I guess we need to give thanks that we got a car.

We got to Scouts tonight and the kids practiced their honor guard duties for the next pack meeting next week.  They look pretty sharp for a unit of Bears and seem to really understand their role within the honor guard.  We came back to our room, shared some cookies and stories about baking and then made a “home-made” version of gorp or trail mix.  It was cheap and it had corn-flakes, raisins, and peanuts in it.  It was a cool recipe and I liked the idea of putting it together at home.   We may try it as a family sometime later.  Then the boys talked about emergency procedures and then we got packed up and went home.

We came home and Austin was all hopped up on sugar because they all ate cookies all meeting long, so trying to get him to bed was interesting to say the least.  After eight o’clock, Heather and I went downstairs and watched our usual gambit of shows (“The Class”, “How I Met Your Mother”, “Two and a Half Men”, “The New Adventures of Old Christine”, and “CSI:Miami”) and of course I taped “Heroes” to catch-up on later this week (hopefully tomorrow).  We went to bed and fell asleep as soon as we hit the pillow.

Okay, let’s talk about Part 6 of Chapter 15 of “Star Wars:The Approaching Storm” by Alan Dean Foster…..

Chapter 15 (Part 6):  Anakin was shocked that this is all they were lookingfor and asked where they could purchase such an item.  Bayaar said that it cannot be bought and must be shorn from the animal like Ansionian tradition.  No technology allowed.  Tooqui commented that he wasn’t keen on this notion.  Barriss agrees and tells Anakin that she thinks this just seems too easy.  Obi-Wan asked if the hair could come from the local herd and Bayaar said that was acceptable.  Obi-Wan then asked Bayaar to escort them to their local herd while there was still daylight to work with.  As they strolled through town, Bayaar was a gracious host pointing out the sights and sounds of camp.  It wasn’t long before they were in front of the Surepp herd.  As they stared at the herd, the only noticable colors were blue and green.  There was not a white Surepp to be found!  Obi-Wan asked how they are to get wool from an animal tht isn’t there, and Bayaar replied saying there are several albino Surrep’s in their herd.  When Luminara asked how many, he retorted saying “two”.  This only confirmed what Barriss thought about this being too easy.  Anakin said this task was impossible withou some use of technology…..
