#271 On a galaxy far far away…

WHO: Kelly

WHERE: Zuma Beach

WHEN: About the time Star Wars first hit movie theaters!
We’ve done it. We’ve watched all of the Star Wars movies. There were 6 of them, you know.

It took us 30 years, but not all of that was our fault. We had to wait for George Lucas to complete the story. I'm not saying the story was all that, but we certainly enjoyed the wizardry.

We could not have achieved this milestone without the help of our Star Wars expert and narrator. He watched the movies with us and pointed out all the important things like… that Wilhelm Scream in Episode 3.

These movies really are great to watch if you just mute the dialogue. And if, 30 years later, you've forgotten what Episode IV was all about, here's Star Wars according to a 3-year-old.

And remember: Don't talk back to Darth Vader. He'll get you!

Yours in wishing I'd been on Zuma beach 30 years ago,

  1. Are you sure this isn't a picture of Kelly on Prince Edward Island right after he built the inukshuk on the beach? At first I thought it was Mark Spitz, but then I remembered PEI.
