marathon

Dave and I tend to watch marathons of things.
Any movie with a certain actor. A tv show from pilot to series finale. We did something new to us this weekend and watched a trilogy of movies. We watched Back to the Future 1, 2 and 3. I hadn't one in oh 20 years and 3 I had never seen. It was fun and hilarious to see their idea of what is now only 6 years away, future.
Anyone have any suggestions for more movie trilogies or the type? Say Star Wars and I MIGHT gag. (I was named after them).

I crocheted til my elbow and wrist hurt. I am like that. I go at it nuts for awhile til I hurt myself so bad I can't again for 6 months. Must learn moderation. And people wonder why I don't drink. pah.
