Mom and Gretchen ready for Star Wars VIII

VHS release
Star Wars trilogy box set
Christmas memories

A long time ago… doesn’t VHS say it all, I wanted the first bundled release of Star Wars IV, V and VI. It was only a couple years after Shawn and I were dating. And I knew my boyfriend would get the hint. Well apparently so did my Dad (he actually went out and bought a Christmas gift). He told my Mom, Roni needs the box set. My Mom told him my Christmas gifts were complete already. I also think she knew Shawn was getting me the set. Imagine my surprise when I opened my gifts Christmas morning to find the VHS set in my parents’ gifts to me. Luckily my Dad brought home the box and gave it to my Mom to wrap; when Shawn came over later with his gifts no Star Wars. My Mom called him and told him he had to rethink his gifts. Actually I would not have minded having two sets.  Believe it or not, we still have a VHS player and Gretchen still watches Empire Strikes Back on it. Yes, we have the movies on DVD, too. But no one in this house likes the redos Lucas made on the original trilogy.

Twenty some years after getting the best Christmas gift ever, Shawn, Rachael, Gretchen and I went to see Star Wars The Last Jedi on Christmas Day! 😀 Merry Christmas to me.
