I don’t remember much of my past as a little child. What I do remember are bits and pieces. George Lucas and Star Wars was many of those pieces I remember. From watching Star Wars at the drive-in theater back in 77 to getting my first Star Wars figures that Christmas.
Then there was collecting the box tops for Boba Fett, the Emperor and more. I kept Fett in the packaging until my mother opened it up after a fight us kids had about it.
Lucas was my childhood. From Indiana Jones to American Graffiti. And yes – even Howard the Duck.
So here’s to you, George. Happy 70th birthday.
