Yeah, I’m a Star Wars Nerd

One of my earliest memories is seeing the original Star Wars at the La Grange Theatre in the SW suburbs of Chicago in 1977 with my grandparents.  I was 4 at the time and my brother and I were staying with them because my parents were taking the only vacation by themselves that I recall them taking my entire childhood.

And I was instantly hooked.  I’ve been a huge Star Wars fan since.

The picture you see is of this.  My brother got it for me for Christmas.  It’s incredible.  It’s immersive and reading it makes you think you’re actually a part of that universe.  And the artwork and illustrations are amazing.

It wouldn’t have been something I would have bought myself, but thanks Jay.
