I guess you know dutch husband has a name. a real name, I mean. I just started to call him dutch husband when I read Corey calling her husband in France 'french husband'. I thought it was sweet.. his real name on his birth certificate is like something out of royalty.. Joseph Henri Michael Gerardus.. I call him Joe.
he came to Australia when he was about 5 for the simple reason as he tells it.. 'that one day he woke up, his parents told him that they were moving to Australia and he thought he may as well tag along, he had nothing else to do'. he left behind his little snow sled that hung under the stairs and a life that would have taken another path... and he sailed to Australia with his parents and 3 siblings and one on the way.
he also has another name. a nickname...his bike riding friends call him Yoda.. and that is where this story is leading.
Joe [also known as dutch husband] loves Star Wars. I could not count on everyones fingers how many times he has watched the trilogy, and beyond. He is also very wise. truly, he knows just about everything and his advice is always, always spot on.... so he became known as Yoda.. a wise Jedi out of the Empire Strikes Back..
he is such a fan that he has a tattoo.. not just a token scribble like mine but a real half an arm of ink. 12 hours under the needle. a work of art.
