Happy Star Wars Day everyone. May the Forth (Force?) be with you. And also with your pants, that you will take off on Friday. Because you will bare it all on Saturday when you go a-gardening. It’s also Cinqo de Mayo on Friday, whether you have your pants on or not. But it’s all okay, because we can laugh it all off (pun intended) on Sunday. Enjoy. You’re welcome. Rock on, Peekskill!
