    "Echo 3 to Echo 7: I've found them, repeat, I've found them!" Okay, so it's not "them", but one. I finally found an R2-D2 Mailbox. I got info from an inside source at the USPS and found out that they put up an R2-D2 mailbox at the Binghamton University campus. So, after an hour of looking, we found it by the old Student Union by the school post office. I'll put pics up for all of you later. Karen, we need to get you over there in your Leia costume!!

    Okay, so here are directions to the R2 mailbox at Binghamton University Campus. First, go through the main entrance to the University and then head East (the signs will indicate which direction you are going. Head toward the "Student Union" and park just outside the Student Union. The sidewalk in front of the parking splits into a "Y" and the right connector goes towards the nice new Student Union building with a green entranceway. The left is the direction you want to go. keep going until you pass the old Student Union Building made of brick. As you round past the left side of the building, you'll find the R2 Mailbox on your right hand side next to two other regular mailboxes.
    Sorry about not getting this out sooner, but I've been busy costume making. By the way, the pics are online and can be found here. Take a look!! My kids and I had lots of fun and my wife was the one that insisted that we find it. I have finally turned her to the dark side!!!

    Sorry I was not able to make it last night. Rosalyn was taken into the vets yesterday and the vet said she had at the most 72 hours to live. Her kidneys and other organs were shutting down. I spent last night with her and she died this morning at about 11:45am. I had to bury her in the back yard today.

    I am still up for this sunday.

    I'm sorry to hear that. It's always hard to loose a pet. It's okay and I totally understand. I'll be there Sunday with bells on. I'll also bring along my newly painted Longshot and Mavericks as well as my helmet which is almost done. The whole costume is starting to come together. I even plan on making my own gauntlets. I'm going to be a Mando Slicer. I will have a rocket launcher on one arm and a keypad on the other to show that I can "slice" into any computer.
