My latest obsession

I have discovered Star Wars.   Did you all about this stuff?   How come no told me any sooner.

My Grandma and Papa are thrilled about it also… ¬†We have been watching “Star Wars: The Clone War” animated series a couple of times a day for the last few weeks.

I have the Star Wars minifigures hidden in every room in our house; they’re everywhere… ¬†Of course, sometimes Papa is not too thrill about that. ¬†Occasionally they get¬†accidentally¬†dropped on the rug and are very difficult to see at night.. especially when you’re walking in your bare feet. ¬† One day, I’ll have to work on that.

I have some Lego Star Wars kits too. ¬†Papa helps me build them. ¬† As Papa puts them together I’m busy either taking them back apart, using the¬†pieces¬†for my own masterpiece, or hiding critical parts. ¬†It can get very exciting when Papa realizes that a¬†critical¬†piece is missing when the model is half way complete. ¬† I always know where the missing pieces are; Papa just hasn’t figured that out yet.

What’s very cool right now (and yes, I talk that way know, not sure who I picked up the work “cool” from) is that McDonald’s¬†is giving away Star Wars stuff in their Happy Meals. ¬† Here’s a picture of me with my lightsaber… ¬†please forgive how Papa looks.. it’s the only picture we had.

Well, that’s it for tonight.

Thanks a lot for stopping by and please stop by again.


Lego Space Shuttle update

I heard Papa telling Grandma that someone asked him what happened with the missing Space Shuttle pieces; the one’s everyone assumed I took.

It seems Lego has a very nice replacement process for missing Lego pieces.¬†¬† Papa contact, told them which parts “disappeared”, and Lego mailed them to us.¬†¬† In just about a week, the new pieces arrived.¬†¬† However, in that same week, Papa managed to finish our Lego Space Shuttle.

It seems Grandma found two of the pieces inside the high-hat (that’s a part of a drum set).

Then, weeks after the parts disappeared, I found the remainder of the missing parts.¬† I’ll never tell where I found them.¬† I just showed up one day in the kitchen with the Lego’s necessary to finish the Space Shuttle.

Here are a couple of pictures of the finished product.

(Isn’t using a Grand Piano as a Lego display table such a good use of it… )

We have put together quite a few Lego kits since then.¬† In fact, yesterday we build one of the space ships from Star Wars.¬† I have no idea what Star Wars is but Papa seemed to be excited.¬† Here’s a picture of what we ended up with…¬† I like it..

Grandma even got in on the fun and helped me build three of the Lego Toy Story kits.¬†¬†¬† I’ll have to get some pictures of those…

Well, that’s it for today
