I must confess when I came across this video via a post on Disqus, it brought some memories flooding back that I hadn’t thought of in – literally – ages.

three decades plus 4
You can’t be serious! 34 years ago?! The number itself triggers a wave of anxiety in my ongoing struggle to not freak out!

I saw Star Wars in the summer of 1977 and countless times on cable TV. I’ve been to see many of the prequels and sequels; or whatever they are, who can keep track? Once Revenge of the Sith was over, I was kinda over Star Wars.
These subsequent movies may be fine, but they just don’t grab my interest or generate the excitement the original trilogy seemed to have. Solo? He was full of it anyway. 😉
