A Long Time Ago...

A very nice fellow, Jeff,  from the fantastic, witty, and  well written blog Cardboard Catastrophes sent my little boy a package out of the blue.  As much as I enjoy getting yellow mailers for myself, it was pretty fun seeing a package addressed to "Doon Son" and seeing my little boy get excited when he found out is was for him and got past the confusion of seeing "Doon Son" on the mailer. 

Inside was a generous helping of vintage Star Wars cards that completely delighted my boy:

 The Tusken Raider card is his favorite (mine too).

I actually am embarrassed that I'm just now posting about it since Jeff sent it a few months ago.  This was a totally unexpected and terrific surprise from him, and further evidence of the type of person he is.  Thanks Jeff!

That's a whole mess of awesome from a galaxy far, far away.

The red borders were my favorite. I used to have a bunch of the blue, red and yellow series. Now, the only card I have left is the Tusken Raider!

That's the great thing about the blogosphere, all the generosity.

I think Han Solo is my favorite, with Aunt Beru a close second. She's rockin' that butterfly collar!

I spent a good part of my youth wishing for a landspeeder. Heck, I still wish I had a landspeeder.
