Star Wars Thoughts and Feelings

I haven't just been away from the show for three weeks (see yesterday's episode$, I was also away from Star Wars for most of that time.  Which lead me to some new thoughts and feelings about Star Wars.

Today's episode is a bit of a rambling mess, but it was something I wanted to get out of my head and share.  ---  Thanks for bearing with me as I slowly get myself back up to speed.  The "fun" version of LT12P will be back soon, I promise!

Saturday, June 3, 2017


Hey there, I am back.  Sorry, I've been away, unexpectedly.  Sadly, my mom passed away.  So, I've been away dealing with all of that.

Today, I felt that I should share a few Star Wars themed stories about my mom.  Thank you for letting me share.  After this, I promise that LT12P will be back on schedule!  Thank you for your patience and understanding.
