"Why, you slimy, double-crossing, no-good swindler."


There are a couple of Mexican guys that work in the nursery as laborers and machine operators. They are nice guys and hard workers, and I talk to them quite a bit. One guy in particular, named Juan, has always struck me as extremely familiar, though I've never been able to put my finger on why. On this drizzly Saturday morning, as I drove in for my four hour shift, I saw him operating a Bobcat, and it hit me like a ton of bricks. The guy is the spitting image of Lando Calrissian. The only thing he was missing was Han Solo's clothes. I am thinking about asking him if he is from Ciudad de los Nubes (Cloud City), but that would just be too much.
