Same procedure as every year

Christmas 02

A dark sided start of the week and finger losing photo trips

This week took a dark start with Mr. Vader himself and a Stromtrooper on Monday’s and Tuesday’s calendar door: (Oh dear Sunday was a Tie-Fighter!!) Is the dark side really stronger? Stay tuned until December 24th!!! My fingers had a very bad day, first I cut my thumb with a scissors at work and then…
