Vintage Comic Book - Marvel Special Edition - Star Wars

A first for my blog - a vintage comic book!  This one is my husband's- from 1978!  He was and is a big Star Wars fan. He was a big comic book fan too and still has a lot of his comic books. I never saw the Star Wars movies as a kid but I do remember watching the tv cartoon spin-off called Droids - watch the clip here.  I also love this clip of C3PO and R2D2 visiting Sesame Street.

Disney's Robin Hood

Happy Blog-i-versary to me!  This month makes 2 years of blogging!  I love writing this blog and sharing fun things with my readers!
Disney's version of Robin Hood is one of my favourite childhood movies.  So when I saw this book-on-tape at a book sale a few weeks ago I snapped it up.  (Don't get in my way when I'm at a used book sale, man.  I'm on a mission!  Haha!)  I saw that Robin Hood is on Netflix now so I want to watch it soon with my daughters.  It's such a cute movie and the songs are catchy.  Recently my 7 year old and I were talking about something or other and it came up that she didn't know what a cassette tape is.  She thought it was a VHS tape (probably should be impressed she even knows what that is!).  But then when I showed her a cassette tape later she did remember seeing one before.  Wow, I guess they are archaic now!  I remember as a kid I would listen to books on tape on my headphones as I was lying in bed before going to sleep.  Or when I got a bit older I would listen to songs that were taped off the radio.  Remember trying to quickly tape a song off the radio when it came on?  You would sit there and listen until it came on just so you could hear your favourite?
