Ask the Jedi Master

Just so you know, Yoda doesn't know everything. I won the opportunity to have a talking Yoda at our house until a future game night in which I shall have to defend my right to keep him. The advantage of having Yoda live with you is that you may ask him a yes or no question whenever you are faced with a dilemma and he will search the force for the truth and answer. Abby loves Yoda and has been conversing at length with the little Jedi Master. Yesterday, they got into a bit of a squabble; Abby asked if she will like her presents on Christmas to which Yoda replied to the negative... three times in a row. Abby hung her head and covered her face with her hands and started to whimper. She has recently learned to fake cry so we thought nothing of it until she looked at me with tears streaming down her face (now in full distress mode) and cried, "Yoda said no!" and dramatically ran into my arms wailing. Paul and I reassured her that she would, indeed love her gifts and that Yoda was fake and didn't know anything. Sometimes, we forget how real everything is to her. Now, she has learned that persistence is the way to go with Yoda as he will "change his mind" about things if asked often enough... "When 900 years old you reach, answer as well you will not!"

Also, our desktop went the way of the world so I have no new photos for the time being. Our new one will be here this week. Yea!

Hey Paul and Bethany,

I just came back from a couple of weeks in an outpost in the middle of nowhere and thought it would be fun to catch up on the familia Baynes latest and greatest. Take care and have a Happy Christmas.
