Star Wars with the Cincinnati Pops

Highly recommended: Star Wars Episode IV with a live orchestra. Hat tip to Heather for the suggestion to catch the Cincinnati Pops provide the score. Even better? If there’s a Luke in your city to pose with folks for photos and raise money to buy Star Wars toys & pay medical bills for families.

The Last Jedi

Had some time to fill before watching The Last Jedi (for the second time) so wandered through a bookstore.

Super Mario World classic SNES game 3. Breaking out old Star Wars toys 4. Annie’s cheddar bunny snack mix and soda water. […]
