Whatever happened to E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial?

In the 1982 movie, we see E.T. board his spaceship and presumedly return to his planet. But, since E.T. was said to be hundreds of years old you can’t expect a galactic traveler like him to stay put.

Here’s evidence that he returned to Earth and opened up a chain of supermarkets!

Fun at the movie theater. After watching The Last Jedi tonight, I took a quick peek in the control room and my camera happened to go off!

Have a Happy Weekend!

The Pippi Longstocking House – Amelia Island, Florida

Located in what is known as Old Town (Fernandina Beach) overlooking the Amelia River on the northwest side of Amelia Island. Originally built around 1870 for a harbor pilot Captain Bell and the second owner was also a river captain in 1901. Located on a high bluff at 212 Estrada Street, it overlooks the former Spanish fort San Carlos (c1811).

It’s a lovely house that’s been restored and maintained throughout the decades. It stood in as Pippi Longstocking’s house in the late 1980s movie “The New Adventures of Pippi Longstocking”… “The house was altered and remodeled through the years. When movie producers came calling in 1987, it was its original weathered white with hunter green shutters. The house stood in for Villa Villekulla, the fictional home of Pippi, a character in a series of books written by Swedish author Astrid Lindgren. The young girl lives alone in a small Swedish village sharing the house with her monkey and horse. She befriends the two children living next door, Tommy and Annika Settergren, and they have many adventures together.”

Today it is a private residence and is not open for tours. It’s a very easy to photograph house because of the large open area in front of the house (actually Fernandina Plaza Historic State Park).
