There seems to be much Star Wars happenings going on this weekend for some reason, so I thought I would share some very old photo’s. I was 5 when Star Wars (it was just Star Wars back then, not A New Hope) came out, I remember standing in a very long line that stretched around the movie theater. I remember the opening sequence and the enormous Star Destroyer going across the screen. Then there was The first appearance of Darth Vader, so epic! I have been hooked ever since. I remember going to see the movie again the next day because my dad just had to see this movie too. So as I prepare to take my 6 year old son to see a Star Wars movie in a theater for the first time today I just wanted to share some of my memories.

And say YES, I was a fan from the beginning!

My vintage collection. All of my original collection was sold at a garage sale (no really I am not bitter at all!) But I have recollected with my son. I get the vintage stuff, he gets the new stuff!

Well, that is it for now. I will have to post something after seeing the movie. I hope my son’s experience is as good as mine was!
