Yesterday was the official last day of Star Wars 30 Days for 30 Years and today I want to thank everyone for stopping by and helping this month be a success. It was nice for me to relive and share some childhood memories and make some new friends along the way! Big thanks goes to Gus Lopez and Mike Middleton, as this month would’ve been incomplete without their super-swell posts. You can read Gus’s Death Star prop post here and Mike’s Glenwood Theatre post here.

Also, I want to thank my pal John Rozum, who also dedicated the whole month of May to Star Wars over at his blog. It was great reading his insightful posts about the galaxy far far away and it helped keep me motivated.

I’m afraid I’m a little blogged out and Star Warsed out, so after tomorrow’s Flea Market Friday, I’ll be taking a short break from the blog. If you want to see most of the Star Wars photos I've posted and a few that I didn't use, you can visit my STARWARSVILLE set over on Flickr.

I’ll leave you with a group of newspaper movie ads for Star Wars, from the Ramada 4 Theatre located in Jefferson City, Missouri. I made my Star Wars 30 Days for 30 Years banner out of one of these. The first one is from 1977 and the others are from the re-release in 1978.

Remember, the Force will be with you always!

I don't blame you at all for needing a break. You've done a lot of work this month, and it's been really entertaining. I've really enjoyed it!

What's wrong with your ear NC? You seem to be pointing at it.

Thanks for all the nice comments and glad everyone enjoyed the posts.

Mike - I'm pointing to my ear and asking the Stormtrooper to help get out some built-up earwax.
