The ol' Walking Carpet has finally passed at the ripe ol' age of 74. Mayhew was something of a one-hit-wonder, although not the most prolific of actors he made a massive impression on the history of cinema with his portrayal of a 2 meter tall alien that undoubtedly had to go through more shampoo in a week than I do in a year. He died last tuesday of a heart attack in his home in Texas.

Not sure what the Wookie equivalent of pouring out a drink would be, so I'mma just raise my glass and toast a man without whom sci-fi fiction films would have been a different landscape.   Cheer ol' timer! Have a nice nap!

So sad to see so many great people passed me away lately.

( And found your desired drink for you despite my not drinking anything alcoholic. Sounded like you were looking for this...)
