318: Tar Wars

Cue music !

Star Wars theme by John Williams


~Episode DIM:  The Farce Awakens~

In a Spanish

mountain village far, far away

Hands Solo (very entertaining for him)

and his lazy, good-for-nothing furry side-kicks ….

…. were invaded by the Park Side.  

Hands Solo (again ? nice !dispatched CO0CO0 and robot China Cat on an important mission.


For heaven’s sake !  It’s a story of what happened !  Where was I ?

~Denuncia Stopped by Local Jedi~

The Park Side, led by queen NewN (new neighbour) had denounced Hands Solo (three times in one post !  Whew !).  

The denuncia was stopped and probably torn up by the Yeti Knights ….

…. I mean “Jedi Knights” (the Guardia Civil police) who put the brakes on her complaint, as the queen NewN was irritating,  irrational and had tried to bribe a Jedi Knight to turn him to the Park Side.  The Farce was with her.

~The Battle Of The Yellow Lines~

The Park Side NewN queen illegally painted yellow lines on the galactic highway.  The commander of the Town Hall was turned to the Park Side by refusing to eliminate these Park Side insignias.


…. from nowhere, in flew Fluke Streetwalker wielding his Light Sabre (it was very light, being made of balsa wood).

Aided by his Merry Men (ooops ! Wrong movie).

Fluke Streetwalker swung his Light Sabre time after time ….

…. until the yellow Park Side insignia was totally destroyed.

~What Will Happen Next ?~

What will happen to the other Park Side insignia ?

Will the Park Side queen order a drone (builder) to repaint the destroyed insignia ?

Will Hands Solo (four times !  Exhausting, but fun !) be ravished by a Princess ?

Will CO0CO0 and robot China Cat be dispatched on an important mission ?

Will the furry side-kicks do anything to enhance this movie ?

Exciting, isn’t it ?  But you guys are no fun.  Oh boy !

~Thoughts Are Things~

I believe that thoughts are things.  

Send out good thoughts, the right thoughts, and your world will right itself.

Send out bad thoughts, hate etc., it will come back and bite you BIG TIME !

A mixed bag of thoughts will just confuse your life.

The choice is yours.

Which type of thinking works for you ?

Or do you get a headache just thinking ?  😉

Happy Easter !

Ralph xox ❤

PS:  As all the post photo files I have saved are in a right mess, I am going to try to number my posts from now on.  If I remember !

        You are quite lucky that I check my dashboard spam regularly as your comment was in there. It is now freed !
        I really don’t blame you for thinking about giving up posting on Bruce Lee. It is a very specialised subject and only true fans are into it. I know nothing about him as I have never seen his films.
        Anyway, I wish you well in whatever you decide to do.
        Take care. Ralph.

      I definitely agree with that. One line gone and the denuncia stopped by the local police which means that it won’t be sent to the courts and all the hassle it entails. Just the cameras to be removed. I wonder how that will be done !

      What will happen next ? They have been very quiet for ages which is a good thing. 3 o’clock this morning I heard water running. I looked around and everything was fine in my apartment then I heard a noise coming from the street. She was out there hosing down the road in front of the house in her dressing gown. You would never do that my friend, would you ?

    I actually read the entire post to the theme music. The music ended on cue with the last words of your post. It really added to an overall effect, and now I’m exhausted.
    Haha, grown men playing in the streets with sticks, breaking things. You think you’re an agent of espionage.
    Well, at least the cats are still normal. I can always count on the cats!

      Yes, the grown men spent hours patching a few metres of road. At least it is level now and not a ploughed field any more.
      I agree, it’s nice to have a little normality around here even though it’s the cats 🙂

  17. Ralph, your parody is outstandingly funny! As long as you can create things like this, you will NOT move from “denuncia” to “dementia.” Yay for the Guardia Civil who couldn’t be bought and shame on NewN for trying (and for so much more). If I am inferring correctly, the work crew was not intentionally removing the yellow line. They were repairing the street, but the unintended consequence was a good one. Verdad? I’m still scratching my head over NewN hosing down the street at 3:00 in the morning in her nightclothes. Maybe you should call in a suspected “streetwalker.” (Just kidding, of course.) I am obviously behind on my digital issues (or should I, as your wifi, say “affairs”), but this was the perfect morning to get a laugh. Have a great weekend.

      Thank you so much for your long and fun comment. I do enjoy reading it as I always do.
      It was fun watching the men repairing the Street and in doing so removed one of the yellow lines. As yet the new neighbours have not repainted it. And yes, she is weird in hosing down the road at 3 AM. I really do not know what is going on in her head. I have not seen or spoken to them for weeks. Probably a good thing.
      I do hope that you are enjoying your affair as my wifi. What fun !

      • Hi Ralph, I thought it was funny. I still read the whole thing. I thought, ‘what are those neighbours up to now!’

        Yeah, I do have a lot of thoughts in my head, so it was fab to leave it all for a week. I mainly feel frustrated at going so slow. My Mac, for a start goes slow and I feel I am not getting enough done in terms of creating stuff to sell. Mostly what I do if free, which is great, but I need to also build a business. I know there are a number of courses I can teach, which will help people, but time is a factor. I have a delay on the printed version of my Asexual Perspectives book, and need to pay another person to finish it. It is made using a software that I cannot use and there are problems with the original source files.

No data was lost as it is all on my Mac still. It is very difficult – I put a bit more in the kitchen loft but not much as it is quite full around the hatch and the ladder I have doesn’t reach that far to put anything else further inside. After it was insulated I cannot add much either and the landlord could still use it too – if he wanted – but I think most of his stuff he cleared from it.

  24. I LOVE the new banner. So cute and so YOU! And this post fits right into your starry night background. Whatever happened to painting over an offending line? Boys do love demo day. “Seems a little bit of overkill,” thought a sane-thinking woman on the other side of the world. I’m out to wave my lightsaber over a field of weeds. Maybe they would love to come here. I have enough weeds for all four of them to wield their own lightsaber. Some of them are almost as big as they are, and they are prickly, so they’d have to conquer the wild beasts to get to the Park Side. Of course, the Bark Side would be there to lend a yelping hand. Lots of love, MFR. Hope your thoughts get sorted out, ready for the next adventure. 🙂

      That’s huge ! What awful weeds ! Well, they say that everything is big in California or is it Texas ?

Maybe it won the line of the year award! 🙂 So it’s Texas where everything is big, especially the stories. Here in CA, the only big things we have here are trees – the Sequoias and agriculture. The film industry is huge, but our wonderful climate makes everything grow. You should put it on your bucket list, MFR. Don’t listen to all those other women trying to lead you astray to travel around the world and miss CA. 🙂 xoxo RVBFM

      • There are residents that did not have water during the drought. I didn’t know about Water Banks. Water here is a difficult situation. We have a well that taps into an aquifer, so we have excellent water as far as I know. Farmland is all around us, and farms use an enormous amount of water. California is talking about metering our well. We are careful with our water use, as are our neighbors, but it could happen. Thanks for sharing that, MFR. You are an amazing person – always so well-informed and caring. Lots of love to you, my friend. 🙂 xoxox
