It's a Zip!

Kismet.
This morning I discovered my jacket's zipper pull to be missing.
This afternoon my friend Chris and I stopped in the Lego store for kicks.
Chris sweetly presented me with one of the three Admiral Ackbar key chains he purchased. (He has a bit of an obsession with their key chains.)
Amused by my new miniature buddy, it dawned on me to remove the key ring.
Admiral Ackbar is quite handy.
Thanks, Chris!

It's a beautiful building. How terribly exciting that it has been restored to its 1920's glory! Can't wait to step foot in it again.
