1. Girl Scout GIRL Expo, Fresno – 1/23

The one you can't really see in the back left.  (Which sort of was a trend for a while...)

12. Honor Guard for US Veteran John Salles, Merced - 5/3

 

37606489125_ff8304b868_o.jpg

 

We didn’t pose for pictures. We didn’t engage the crowd and solicit high-fives or wave to newcomers as they came through the door, or ask if they had seen any droids. It wasn’t that kind of troop. We stood quiet and still, feeling the unique strain of standing still in full garb and armor, but unwavering in our vigil.

 

ID-39999 and I, TK-29118, stood guard at the viewing for John Salles, of Merced, California, United States Veteran, former Dos Palos Police Officer and Merced County Sheriff Officer, and fellow nerd. Mr. Salles was involved in World War II and Civil War reenactors, a collector of sci-fi paraphilia, including a Wrath of Kahn Starfleet uniform worn by Leonard Nimoy himself, and was building his own Anovos TK.

Several family members approached us and shook our hands, thanking us for being there. A few took pictures. One grinned as she high-fived us. We were told more than once it was a perfect touch, and exactly what Mr. Salles deserved in a final send off.

 

Mr. Salles was laid to rest in a military funeral on May the 4th, 2016, also apt.

It wasn’t a fun troop; it was a good troop.

Couldn't find a photo of this one... but it was a great troop!  And we got to eat pancakes.

16. V Town Roller Derby, Visalia - 5/21

 

37606488725_48c3d68ba1_o.jpg

 

Something about all the posed photos that makes me like the candid shots like this one.  I also have a habit of appearing like I'm staring directly into the camera from the background like this.

21. Fresno Grizzlies Star Wars Weekend - Day 2, Fresno - 6/11

 

24621098928_54eb20dbac_o.jpg

 

First TK on the right, behind the Tusken.  (I'll admit it took me a minute to find myself...)

 

24621098548_0a8b3fec07_o.jpg

 

A mighty fine looking group of TKs, TDs and a Deathtrooper (Zombie Trooper, now?).  First TK on the right.

With C3PO, who you probably didn't recognize because of his pink arm.  (The event benefits The Susan G. Komen Foundation and Force for the Cure).

22. Independent Living Program's High School Gala, Fresno - 6/17

 

26718502069_ff0fd0eab3_o.jpg

 

I'm not aware of any photos from this one, unfortunately.  It was a bit of an odd event, it was myself and one other TK, but we also spend a good amount of time in the hallway talking and having a great time among ourselves while their program went on.  Made a fun story, though, and we had fun.  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Guess who I met?!  The one and only Doug Jones!  Seriously an awesome and super nice guy.  Who cares if I have bucket hair?
