Really loved listening to the latest qu. and a. show and got a buzz from listening to you recount your trips to Melbourne back in the day, which sounded really similar to my own.
I have both a comment and a question for you, for the next show if you can find space for it.
I used to travel to Melbourne from Gippsland in the early 90's to have chemotherapy at the Children's and each time, I'd stop by my regular shops including Minotaur and (what I think was) Silver K Fine Arts in Elizabeth Street. For years, Silver K had an original framed cel from the old Droids cartoon series and it consisted basically of R2's leg and 3PO's arm on a desert background. That was it - and I wanted it soooo bad. I think, back then, it was priced at around $800aud and I never had a chance in hell of affording it but everytime I had the chance, I'd go into that shop and just stare at it.
Listening to you talking about the must do places to visit for anyone travelling to California, I wondered if you and Jooklin have ever partaken of a meal at Ben (son of Harrison) Ford's "Ford Filling Station" in Culver City. I don't know exactly how convenient it is on the trail of must do 'Star Wars' places (or how relevant it is) but it crossed my mind anyway.
Thanks for all that you do in service to the Force Steele and May That Force Be With You.
