Figured this was the appropriate place in the forum to wish everyone a happy Star Wars Day. I remember seeing “A New Hope” in the theater…Of course, back then it was just called Star Wars . I was just a youngling, but that movie fueled my interest in science and technology like no other. Oh how I wanted an X-Wing! I had action figures - that I actually played with, not kept in a sterile environment to be sold to somebody in the future. I built models of the ships. I had posters in my room.
So now I’m older. I’ve no longer got posters in my room. I don’t have any action figures. My son is far more interested in Iron Man and Thor than he is in Luke and Han. I still want an X-Wing, though!
I can’t wait for Episode VII. Yes, I’m going to be there on opening day.
