Return of the Jedi

In a rather hometowny way, the people of Modesto welcomed George Lucas as he returned to the streets of Modesto. You can see him just over my left shoulder riding in a salmon colored convertible as Grand Master of the annual American Graffiti parade. 
My friend got a picture signed, but alas, I was too reticent to press the issue and returned home with my Star Wars trilogy VHS set unsigned, even after stalking the poor guy to the airport and having an employee run out to the plane with it to ask. "No" the pilot said.
I went to the first Star Wars movie on a Friday night on my first ever movie date. 
Well, George, you livened up another Friday night for a lot of us. Hope you felt as welcome as we wanted you to be!
