Thank you all for the Birthday wishes!
Mighty kind'a you (especially Dale who shaved a few years off)! Makes an old man like me feel all warm n' fuzzy inside...
I was hoping to sneak this one by everyone, and thought I was about to, but alas - Scott
finally caught me!
No idea what those little pills up there are there though...
Got some nice SW swag from the wifey, the family, and of course - myself!
Mom-in-law hooked me up with a fancy, cool Star Wars watch made by Fossil, with that old famous Hildebrandt SW picture in it from back in '77. Patty hooked me up with a couple SW books, and the Jedi Luke/Snowtrooper/re-release wave (a day or two early, but who's counting).
...and I hooked myself up with... well, a whole bunch of stuff - the Playskool line, more of the Snowtrooper wave, the CW vehicles and 3-packs, and some MOMC upgrades - among other things!
But the best Birthday present, was our new house closing escrow on Wednesday, July 30th. Official homeowners now, we are! Though we're letting the previous owners rent back from us for another couple weeks still, so we won't be moving in until the 19th. But soon enough! I'm right behind ya' John
(and congrats on your 12th)!
Also getting some other real fun little Birthday gifts tomorrow when I get together with my buddy Jared
, who's hooking me up with the last figure that I need to complete my entire
modern carded and
loose collections - my second Ep. 1 Battle Amidala (to open). He scored it in Japan for me recently for CHEAP!
Technically, I still need a FF Weequay and Sandtrooper too, but those are more carded variations, so I'm not counting them! Plus, he's also hooking me up with the ROTJ Kubrick Fett variant
that I need to polish off that collection for the time being as well! So Happy Birthday to me!!!
(thanks Jared, you're the man!)
See now - the older you get, the greater the propensity to ramble on and on and on... So thanks again everybody! Guess turning 33 ain't so bad after all...
