The Dow Corning Tennis Classic rolled into town a few weeks ago and I spent my fair share of time on the court shooting pros who may break into the big leagues in coming years. I heard one coach describe the event as triple-A baseball. It's not the majors, but they are getting close.

Things I saw on Friday: a baby calf, a dog chasing a vacuum cleaner, a cat named Fuzzy, a sixty car pile up on I-75, and Darth Vader eating pizza. This post is about the last event of that hectic day. I followed local Star Wars enthusiasts on their way to the 3D premiere of Episode I. The original Star Wars movies are some of my favorites and I had a blast hanging out with the crew as they suited up. The next post will include a picture of Fuzzy the cat.

I took a walk on the Tridge today to see what people were up to and saw teenagers taking their chances on what little ice we have this winter. I took a few from up high before I ventured out onto the frozen river to get some photos closer up. It felt alright under the feet, though I wonder how thick the ice really was.
