Z is for ZIP - A - DEE - DOO - DAH

I couldn't resist playing the 
2014 A to Z Challenge 
out on a happy note.

Thank you to everyone who stopped by 
and made all of April "A Wonderful Day."

Here's one of the biggest Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah days in my life 



The day I met Luke Skywalker - Mark Hamill!

"It will be a day long remembered."

He really is THE nicest guy in the galaxy - 
far far away or any other.

CONGRATULATIONS 
to everyone in the A to Z! 
It's been a blast.

See you in the blogosphere.

And - cue the music...

Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay
My, oh my, what a wonderful day
Plenty of sunshine headin' my way
Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay

    1. When he first introduced himself to the kids, he said, "I'll bet you're all wondering what Luke Skywalker's grandfather is doing here." Great sense of humor. The kids knew him best from his voice work.

  19. AWESOME!! And that's so funny--I just read the comment above, too. (re: Luke Skywalker's grandfather!! Bwahahaha).
