It wasn’t until I was recently talking with my family that the origin of these photos occurred to me. Back when I was a little Trooper I would get grounded on a regular basis. I know, shocker. During these long lengths of grounding, while my parents were out for dinner, I would sneak out of my room with all my Star Wars, G.I. Joe, He-Man and Transformer figures and set up intricate scenarios and scavenger hunts for my parents to return to. This would ultimately end with a nice note saying “I am sorry.”

This served two purposes. First, I got to play with my toys while being grounded. But, the main goal, was a shortened sentence of being stuck in my room paying for my crimes. I guess you could say that is where I started my fascination with setting up my toys in new and interesting scenarios. Either way, I am having a blast doing it. Thank you for playing along with me.

Some nights call for a new dram and a story from a long time ago in a galaxy far far away... or from Islay.

These are the Whiskies we were looking for. One for you, and one for me.

"Never tell me the odds." Nothing better than unboxing a new bottle. Even one you have had many times before.

Some friends instinctively know when you've opened a bottle for the evening. But what better way to enjoy a quality dram than with some friends. So, always be prepared.

The peat is strong with this one. Now go, leave me, so I may nose this whisky further.

  1. Thank-you for sharing this story! If your fans didn’t already love you so much, this post brings you to a new level of adoration for your adorableness as a child. Of course, this is at odds with a Storm Trooper persona, so never fear, we still support your dark side, as long as it refers to smoky Scotch and a black sense of humor.

  2. You playing with toys makes me feel better about playing with my Pocket Jamie ( Outlander ) thing. And in the end, we both get whisky…win, win.
