Well...
I finally got out of the house again...it has been awhile...
The Remaker and I went to the Joliet Galaxy again ...
I recognized the area as a place I had visited before...

I got to meet a lot of new friends...







The Remaker was quite pleased that my lights and voice lasted for the entire day....I was talking and blinking from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM without a flutter...


I also got to hang out with one of my own kind as Kevin Glass brought his Astromech with him..
I am more than a little aggravated with the Remaker that she did not get a photo of the two of us hanging out in the Kid's Library/Droid Repair shop...I swear...
I think the Remaker is losing it...

The Savior was there...but he was dressed as that nasty Count Dooku person..



I hope he has not fallen to the Dark Side...

My other friend Jim was there...
He was dressed as one of my favorite Pilots...
Wedge Antilles

I think in this photo he is doing some important work...



There were only a few of the Rebellion there...




but they managed to beat the Empire in collecting funds for a sentient disease fundraiser called "Making Strides Against Breast Cancer"...





I can't wait to get out again!

Artoo here again...

I don't seem to be getting out of the dwelling much lately but finally got a chance to "bust loose" in the Lemont Galaxy on chrono date 6-17-11.

It was another of those events at a place which houses "books"...an ancient form of communication and recreation...
during my time everything is on holocrons or flimsy...

at any rate...

I was happy to get out and "press the plastic" with a few more new friends...








they always seem to be endlessly curious about my innards...

What a great time!

I am going on a most important mission on Friday to the Oak Lawn Galaxy.

I am going to Hope Children's Hospital with the Remaker to visit some sick children.

This mission reminds me of my visit to Vincent when he was very sick...
and I will do my very best on Friday.

Also,
yesterday the Remaker came home from Wizard World and brought me a present from the citizens of the Midwest Garrison Empire...

my very own Trading cards!

I have instructed the Remaker to sew a device on a strap for my cards so that I can hang the device from my utility arm and pass out my cards to all my new friends..

Thank you to the citizens of the Midwest Garrison....

I completed my very important mission to the Oak Lawn Galaxy to visit the children at Hope Children's Hospital.

This event was in honor of a little girl (Natalie) who passed away at 15 months of a heart defect.

I was very sad to meet all of the sick children and wish that Bacta was a reality.....or that Med droids were available.

I lost one piece of my body somewhere in the hospital....but the Maker has already fabricated a new piece...
and..
when the Maker and sentient Chris from the Parts Department where the Maker works loaded me into the parts van...they broke my holo-eye...but the Maker is already working on fixing that as well.

The Maker did fashion a device for me to have on my utility arm to pass out my own trading cards.


I met Natalie's parental unit....



I got a chance to visit with Scout Fenlynn....it has been awhile since I have seen her:




Lord Vader was there...
he always makes me nervous...




Sandpeople make me nervous too...but not nearly as nervous as Jawas:





I met this nice sentient outside:





The maker had to worm her way into this photo:




The maker doing her job:



Just hanging out with the Imperials:





Group shot:

Wow...
I have had a busy couple of days for a change.

Nice to get out a bit...

On Thursday night I went with the Remaker to the WalMart store in the Orland Hills Galaxy for the release of the Star Wars movie on some technology that is called "Blu ray"....
I have no idea what that is...but the Remaker bought this set and doesn't have a way to play it..
very "remaker" of her.

I had a very strange encounter with a young employee of this Walmart store as the remaker and I entered.
The young employee didn't know who I was and asked the Remaker...the remaker tried to explain but the employee said that she found Star Wars to be boring and never watched it...
she worked at the Walmart and didn't even know there was an event going on in her own place of employment and asked the Remaker (who was in her full Rebel Fleet Trooper costume) if she took me shopping with her often..
shopping?
really?

anyway..
I got a chance to see the Princess again!




We had a GREAT group of costumers there...



I did watch as the "big show" was rolled in...



Boba Fett was busy looking at some other purchases...




The remaker got home really late....and left for work.

But the very next day I got a chance to go and hang out with some of my fellow Astromechs and got to visit with S5 again....boy...
I have not seen S5 all year!
The Remaker took me to the Indiana star system to a place called the Indiana Dunes State Park.....it reminded me of the Forest Moon of Endor!
It was beautiful...
and...there were many of my fellow astromechs there in various stages of completion...










The remaker noted that one of the harnesses was missing off of my battery box....
and wondered when it got lost....
she thought it might have been on the mission to the Walmart..but further investigation of photos taken the day of the Hope Children's Hospital event clearly shows that it got lost going from the staging area for the Hope Children's Hospital in the North Building to the actual Hospital.

So, since the fabricator that makes those battery harnesses is currently going through domestic issues and is not selling more at this time, the Remaker will have to remove one of those harnesses from the other battery box to make me look even. In looking through schematics, some of the other Astromechs only had one on each box anyway....

Boy, that troop to Hope Children's Hospital was very hard on me...
I lost two parts now...
and also one of my Holo-eyes was broken. The remaker did fabricate one of the pieces that fell off and fixed my Holo-eye (sadly...the hot glue burned two of the Remakers fingers badly when trying to fix that) and now she finds I have a piece missing that she can't make.



The remaker also decided that I was looking very dirty..
or..
"weathered" as they sometimes call it...
so she plans on giving me a thorough cleaning...

One of the other builders did take a stop action video of the day...

it is here on the holonet:

I am all the way on the right...
but the Maker was VERY skilled at making sure she was not in the video..

Very Happy

I got a chance to get out of the dwelling again! I love getting out to mix and mingle with my friends and to meet new ones.

This time the Remaker and I traveled to the Homer Glen Galaxy to a place that is known as a Library...
It reminded me a lot of the Jedi Archives.

The Savior was there...we hung out for a while...but...I think that the Savior did have other things on his mind...I provided him with a place to place his chin on his hand and contemplate life in a changing galaxy...





It is always good to get out and press the flesh...

er..

the duraplast...

The remaker loaded up my carrier with my trading cards and
well....
they all were taken...
I guess she will need to make a larger trading card carrier...
or bring more cards along...

When the Padawans asked me early on to sign their autograph books, the Remaker said that my restraining bolt would prohibit me from signing their books...so she offered my card instead...that resulted in a rush on our group and threw the first part of the evenings programming up for grabs...

Embarassed

Thank you for the kind Christmas grettings Commando Ashley...
I have not been getting out much lately.
.but the Maker said that things would be very crowded at Toy Con yesterday
so she is saving me for the next mission where more bodies are needed.

Wow! Did I have a great weekend out of the dwelling! I even got a chance to do a sleepover with Darth Vader, Yoda and Quinlan Voss!

The Maker brought me to the New Lenox Galaxy on Friday night for a fundraiser at Martino Junior high. The fundraiser was a benefit for Toys for Tots. I was set up with the aforementionend trio and greeted sentients from all over the New Lenox galaxy. It was great fun to be surrounded by the Rebellion and to make new friends. I took photos with the sentients and handed out my trading card.









The Maker then powered me down (or so she always thinks) and left me at the school for the sleepover and she returned the next day with my IPod all recharged so I could talk to the participants again on day two.

Day two saw more new friends....
and two Jawas! I was more than a little nervous to have the scavengers of Tatooine so close.....but they didn't remove any of my parts..




The Savior was at the school on the second day...I had wondered where he was...



I got to stand in front of this cool backdrop all weekend..




Lord Vader was there ...but I recognized him as Obi-Wan even under all of that black plastic..




I met this very young fan.....





and...

since living with the maker is difficult....and as I was roaming the halls late at night while there for the sleep over...
I decided that a little counseling couldn't hurt...
so..
I signed up!

Absolutely...
I hacked into the school's internet and went surfing on the Holonet...
I went to raid the cafeteria but only found items I could not use...so I went to the and found the stationary engineer's office and found some lubricants there...

I also viewed the items in the museum...but was shocked to find NO images or statues of me....
how rude!
