I’m finding myself feeling a bit nostalgic this week.

And no, it is not from the oppressive heat of spending last weekend sorting through family treasures in the garage attic.

We have yet to figure out which of our five Webbheads created a sinister-looking pink bunny out of toilet paper rolls we found in the bottom of one box.

The rabbit’s “nasty, big, pointy teeth” and an apparent “vicious streak a mile wide” made me think about the Akron Civic’s announcement that it is hosting John Cleese in December.

The Dec. 10 appearance by Cleese will be preceded by a showing of the classic Monty Python and the Holy Grail in the grand theater.

Tickets are on sale now for $79 and promoters say Cleese will share war stories from his life and career and you “just may finally find out the air speed of an unladen swallow.”

Also in my attic — and for the record a terrible place to keep such items — are some of the vinyl albums of my youth.

Let’s just say my musical tastes bordered on just plain strange with every Harry Chapin album ever released, a random Bay City Rollers 45 and several well-worn Cheech and Chong albums.

Looking back, I’m not sure whether my parents had just given up — I am the youngest of four after all — or had no idea who Cheech and Chong were.

The 12-year-old in me still slips out every so often when I announce “I gotta go to the can man.” Sorry Sister Mary Elephant.

Cheech and Chong are back on tour and they will be making a stop at the Hard Rock Rocksino in Northfield on Nov. 11.

Tickets range from $42 to $72 — a far cry higher than the 25 cents I used to pay for the duo’s albums at Goodwill.

If you are looking for a bit more family-friendly fare, the Western Reserve Historical Society’s Cleveland History Center in University Circle is hosting a special exhibit highlighting the career of Bob Hope.

The traveling exhibit “Bob Hope: An American Treasure” from the World Golf Hall of Fame & Museum will open Saturday.

I have fond memories of sitting in front of the family’s old color television (yes there was a time when you had to point out the fact it was color) to watch Hope’s annual USO holiday TV special.

The exhibit features some 160 artifacts, including Hope’s Congressional Gold Medal and honorary Oscar statuette. More than 200 vintage photos and seven video displays tell the story of Hope’s early years, from when his family moved to Cleveland from England when he was just a child to his Hollywood career and love of golf.

The exhibit, which is included with your museum admission, will be in Cleveland through next June and offers a good chance to say “thanks for the memories.”
