Adventures of The Egg – Episode 28

The final voyage

Prologue

Dear gentle readers, as you know, The Princess and Obie-Bob Cannoli have been traveling the cosmos for many parsecs.  Katrina Casita (KC for short) has made the adventures most memorable, but things happen and changes in life are the norm.  Read now about their Last Voyage…….

Chapter 1 – The Last Voyage

“Well Princess, it’s almost time to leave our spaceport here in the Mississippi Galaxy and head to place our KC into the hands of the new Starship Commander, Captain Jay and his able bodied navigator, the Lady Angela” muttered Obie-Bob Cannoli, defender of The Truth and foe of The Dark Side.

“Yes, it is that time.  I hope we have not made a mistake and will not regret what we are doing” added Princess Pat.

“Stuff” that was removed from KC was loaded into the Tug, as many mods had been performed and the two Adventurers wanted to ensure the new Starship Commander had all the original “parts” to put back should they so desire.

The day of departure had finally arrived.  The Princess and Obie-Bob slowly maneuvered KC from their spaceport and headed toward the rising sun, tothe Florida Galaxy where the new owners were anxiously awaiting their arrival.  The distance was great, so a stop at a temporary overnight docking facility was required.  The following day, the two arrived at their destination and took great pleasure in ensuring that all was right with KC.

Chapter 2 – Orientation

Princess Pat authored an operating manual for the new owners, and when they arrived, The Princess and Obie-Bob went through the operation of all the onboard operating systems and the steps need for proper set-up and docking.  Captain Jay and the Lady Angela, although they had never owned a starship before, quickly grasped the fundamentals of starship operation.  Captain Jay and Obie-Bob ensured that “Eggsective Decision Squared” (or ED2) as KC had been rechristened, was ready to take flight on new adventures.  The Princess and the Lady Angela checked and rechecked the procedures for docking and departure.

Finally it was time to for The Princess and Obie Bob to depart.  Their new Egg of a different shape was ready for them at a dealership that sold Eggs of all shapes and sizes, not far away.

As Obie-Bob and The Princess departed, there was a heaviness in their hearts, but also excitement as they pondered the new adventures that awaited them.

“I hope they have as many great adventures with ED2 as we had when it was Katrina Casita” thought The Princess

Chapter 3 – A New Beginning

The following solar day, Obie-Bob and The Princess arrived at the dealership that sold Eggs of all shapes and sizes.  They inspected their new Egg of a different shape and set off for the Georgia Galaxy for their first night in “Ms Ellie” (short for Mississippi Element).  They had little difficulty in positioning Ms Ellie into the temporary docking facility and documented the event with these two photographic images:

The two opened an adult beverage to toast Ms Ellie.  They spent two solar days returning to their home spaceport where Obie-Bob maneuvered Ms Ellie into their spaceport.

“It’s much bigger than I remember” remarked Obie-Bob.

“Of course” thought The Princess with a smile on her face, “men always think it’s bigger than it really is.”

Obie-Bob remembers the wise words of Master Yoda.  “Size matters not.  Look at me.  Judge me by my size, do you?  Hmm?  Hmm.  And well you should not.  For my ally is the Force, and a powerful ally it is.  Life creates it, makes it grow.  Its energy surrounds us and binds us. Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter.  You must feel the Force around you; here, between you, me, the tree, the rock, everywhere, yes.  Even between the land and the ship.”

So ends the Adventures of The Egg with Princess Pat and Obie-Bob Cannoli.  We hope you have enjoyed reading about our exploits with Katrina Casita as much as we have enjoyed writing about them.

Remember gentile readers: “Like it or not, time passes, and that’s why nothing will ever be the same it used to be.  Things are meant to change.”

Chapter 4 – A message from Captain Jay and the Lady Angela

“We’ve received a slow-speed, intergalactic transmission from Captain Jay and the Lady Angela” announced Obie-Bob.  “They have been out and about with ED2 and have sent a photographic image of their adventure” Obie-Bob remarked excitedly.

“Post it for all to see” Princess Pat exclaimed.

So here are the new Starship owners enjoying ED2:

And they all lived happily ever after!

 May the Force be with you
