2007 April 1
When Em and I drove down to Southern California to return the ML to her parents we drove back up in a rented truck in order to transport a bed. We also brought along an old friend who had been in storage for some time, a Storm Trooper.
This particular guy is number 008 of 500. Em' s brother Ray has number 012. Number 001 was presented to George Lucas by our Uncle Bill Atcheson.
The Storm Trooper came in two boxes that were at least twice as big as normal size coffins. We spent at least one hour bagging all of the peanuts and were very happy to find a packing store that would take them from us.
