This is kind of a preview of tomorrow's post, but click here to see how Southwest Airlines assisted the transport of Luke Skywalker's lightsaber to NASA in Houston.

The TSA screening for this must have been a hoot.

Which one were you Brian, left or right? ;-) The white zone is for the immediate loading and unloading of passengers. There is no stopping in the red zone. Ding! boy joe

Will Southwest get to carry the lightsaber from HOU to MCO in preparation for the shuttle mission From Cape Canvernal to get it to the ISS?

You know, now that I think about it, Brian does resemble Yoda, with that green complexion. Oh, wait, maybe that is just his reaction to eating hospital food! Welcome back, Brian! Interesting that I saw this post on the same day that I went to Ft. Worth to see this traveling exhibition: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Star_Wars:_Where_Science_Meets_Imagination which I would highly recommend for any of the rest of you fans of lightsabers and all things Star Wars-like! Kim, who is neither Luke nor Brian's father 🙂

Kim, You can't have it both ways. I can't resemble Brad Pitt in one comment, then Yoda in the next. After all, lightsaber do I write. Wise as Yoda

Kim! You're back! I've haven't seen any posts from you for awhile. Maybe Brian looks like Yoda Pitt?

Hey Jim! Thanks for missing me...several times, I tried to post to the blog several times recently but was unsuccessful until Brian encouraged me by saying, "Try not. Do, or do not. There is no try." By the way, you know why duct tape is like The Force? It has a dark side and a light side and it holds the universe together... Salutes Yoda Pitt, who tells me he has a new facial addition as well, Kim External Blog Boy and Apprentice Lightsaber Polisher 🙂

I was flying out of Houston that day and was at the gate right next to all the excitement. There were as many awestruck adults and their were children. Just wanted to say a huge THANKS!! to Southwest for providing such great service whether inside the terminal or on a flight. I travel for business almost every week and always try to fly Southwest. In the 8 years I have been traveling for business I have never had a bad experience on Southwest - that cannot be said for any of the other airlines. I look forward to many more years as a dedicated customer.
