sounds like ‘You the Dad!’
That one was a struggle, even for me.
The inspiration for this week’s feature image was a Twitter conversation between Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker on Father’s Day. Seven years ago (June 19th, 2016) Star Wars Dave Prowse (Darth Vader’s body actor, James Earl Jones did the character’s voice) tweeted out one of the most popular (and misquoted) movie lines in history, “I am your father.”
Hamill (Skywalker) couldn’t resist the bait and wrote back, “Thanks for thinking of me Dave. Love to you from your movie-son, Mark”
To that, Prowse had an equally pithy response, “Let me know if you need a hand with anything.”
The following, is a music video full of Dad jokes. If you subject yourself to only one You Tube video this week, choose this one.
Of course, that song does remind me of another joke. What do you call a person who is not a dad who makes dad jokes?
… a Faux Pa.
I know that some people were concerned because our puppy, Xanax, had pink eye at the beginning of the week. She saw her vet, got an antibiotic, and is right as rain now. To verify how well she is doing I asked her to solve a math problem.
“What’s two minus two?”
Xanax said nothing.
Moving on from that, we should probably mention some of the activities coming up in the not too distant future:
- Friday, June 16th, 5ish – 9ish, Extra Long Board Game Night, This is an opportunity to come and play some longer board games. If you can’t make it till the regular time, that is ok as well as there will be others still showing up at 6:30 to play games as well
- Saturday, June 17th, 1PM – 3PM, Tech Help (the group formerly known as Old Men That Sit Around and Talk About Computers) ~ This group meets every Saturday to help others with their tech problems and/or talk about trending technology. We have solved a lot of computer problems for various platforms and devices including phones, smart watches, digital cameras, 3D printers, and we have helped people with numerous software problems ranging from laptop and cell phone apps to even things like Apple Car Play. If you got a new (or problematic) device, bring it in and we can help you set it up. We are also going to start offering classes on everything from how to make your cellphone easier to use, to 3D printing, to flying drones, cord cutting, etc. Let us know what topics you’re interested in and we’ll put together information on that.
- Saturday, June 17th, 7PM – 8:30PM, Bereans Group ~ This group, which is open to the public, is discussing the Biblical perspective on transgender.
- Tuesday, June 20th, 7PM – 8:30PM, Bible Study ~ We just finished a series on I and II Thessalonians. If you’re thinking you would like to join a new Bible study, this could be a good opportunity to join as we will be starting the book of Exodus.

This is our big Summer fundraiser, so stop in and check things out. More details will be made available soon. You may register here or at our store.
As we’ve recently started selling board games at Lost and Found, I decided to highlight a game that includes the joy of your favorite B-movie monsters and game mechanics that will remind you of playing king of the hill. It is the aptly named King of Tokyo.
In King of Tokyo, you play mutant monsters, gigantic robots, and strange aliens—all of whom are destroying Tokyo and whacking each other in order to become the one and only King of Tokyo.
Now for the part everyone always asks about, the actual food! Our soup is our hash brown potato soup, our sandwich is a Reuben! Our specialty ice creams are Honey Roasted Peanut Butter and Strawberry Cheese Cake ice cream. Our current specialty waffle is a red velvet waffle.
Thanks and God bless,
