I have a bad feeling about this!

Well when I was growing up, from about the age of 6/7 years old I watched Star Wars every day without fail.
That is until we got rid of our Betamax Video player and switched to VHS (a very sad day)...then no more Star Wars until it was on the TV again and I recorded it once more! I was born in 1977 (vintage year). The same year Elvis died, Apple Computer, Inc. becomes Incorporated, The Queens Silver Jubilee AND Star Wars was released. I grew up in California and my mum and dad took me to see it when I was only months old and I slept all the way through it (and I think I peed all over my mum!), but I can say I was there and saw it on the big screen.
Every so often I pull out my DVDs and put them on in the background wondering if Grace will take a shine to them too, but she's too much of a girlie girl. I guess it takes time to appreciate the finer things in life.

Remember to tell me what your favourite film was when you were growing up in my previous post to be in with a chance to win a pair of my camel brown fingerless gloves....can't wait to hear every one's choices. x

Hi Lorna,
I wish I was born in the 60's or 50's or seventies. All the films then were more intresting to me. I appreciate them a lot. But anyway while I was growing up my favorite movie had to be...disney classics. I remember watching snow white and the Seven Dwarfs for the first time and also Cinderella. After watching Snow White I got to see it peformed in theater. They were magical stories for me. I loved them. Happy endings are great.
