Do You Know This Droid?
Approximately 400 US post boxes are to be given this R2-D2 look to celebrate 30 years of Star Wars. I think that was the last time I went to the movies. No, I took my five-year-old son to see Basil, The Great Mouse Detective for his birthday treat (his choice) 20 years ago. It scared the life out him! He ended up sitting on my lap, sucking his thumb. They won't drag me back until cinemas are cloudy with tobacco smoke again; it adds to the ambiance. Remember Shaft - the Richard Rowntree original - with that daft villain trying to look tough with his eyes watering from the smoke of his fat cigars? Sneers from a befogged audience. If they could hack it, why couldn't he?
