    OMG! ‘The Dark Knight’ made me fall in love with BatMan all over again. I think Christian Bale was the best (besides Michael Keaton). I remember when me and my boys went to go see it, everyone thoroughly enjoyed the film. I was the ‘Donkey Kong’ and ‘Centipede’ master (early 80’s lol). My hubby LOVES ‘Shark Week’ I’ve yet to understand that lol. Great post! Brought back good memories…


  2. Shark Week goes back to 1988?!?!? That blows my mind. Thanks for sharing. Also, yay for July!
