40 Years and Counting

Where has the time (and money) gone?  My earliest childhood memories included Star Wars, and to this day it is an ever present aspect of my life that I share with my children, and hopefully, they will share with theirs. From the movie that started it all in 1977, to the expanded universe, TV and to the new era of films, we embrace it all (yes, even the Holiday Special). Thank you George Lucas, Lucasfilm and Disney for opening our imaginations and our sense of wonder to that galaxy far, far away.
