Meeting the Mailbox

U.S. Postal Service R2-D2 Mailboxes, March 31 2007
The U.S. Postal Service is celebrating the 30th Anniversary of Star Wars by decorating some of their drop boxes as R2-D2 units. That seemed like a great opportunity for R2-KT to pose for pictures next to her friend's likeness. This is the drop box in front of our main post office in downtown Columbia, SC. We got some funny looks from people driving up to drop off their mail. I think some of them thought R2-KT was the mailbox.

Riverbanks Zoo, March 24 2007
Make-A-Wish of South Carolina honored their volunteers in a cookout at the zoo. I was asked to come and share what Make-A-Wish did for our family as well as the story of R2-KT. It was a good time meeting all the hard-working people who help make wishes come true. I was even honored with a personalized plaque from the kids. Very cool. The monkeys didn't know what to make of our favorite droid!
