A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away.....

Newly trained Jedi Knight Kevvie-Wan Gardner began an epic quest of his home planet in search of geology, photographic opportunities and beer. More beer than was strictly allowed by the Jedi Council, if truth be told.

In these early years Kevvie-Wan was mainly alone, except when travelling, when he was joined by an assortment of friends, some of whom were big and hairy and made funny noises. Not very many of them wore a white dress or had Danish pastries stuck to their heads, but not to fear, ‘cos as the little green bloke would say “Fear is the path to the dark side…fear leads to anger…anger leads to hate…hate leads to suffering.”

Kevvie-Wan continued his journey until one day, in a bar in one of the remoter settlements of the French Alps (whilst watching the football scores), he first met Kas. Their relationship quickly grew and they were joined in union and travelled the planet together for some years until the arrival of the two padawan named Ami-Dala and Izzykin, as a result of which they had to trade in the Millenium Falcon and get a bigger motor, so that they could continue their journey through the galaxy together.

So below is a series of highly cut-down summaries of my earlier years prior to meeting Kas, and a few more from after. These are mainly the years and individual holidays where the memories are so distant, and the photos so few, that a whole series of posts isn’t warranted.
