Knick-Knacks

These are a few of the knick-knacks that I have in my possession.

Clockwise, from top left:

  • A porg (which I named Fred) that I received as a birthday present at Hollywood Studios’ Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge attraction
  • A card-holder and deck of cards that I bought in Sevilla, Spain for my mom in December of 1988
  • A Jelly Belly Death Star that I acquired a few years ago during a visit to a Cracker Barrel near Ft. Myers, Florida
  • Another shot of Fred in his natural habitat
  • A portrait of this blogger by the late Colombian portrait artist Leonel Torres

    1. I have, I think, two different-scaled Porgs. (Maybe three…I would have to look at my boxes from the Galaxy’s Edge store where I bought some multi-figure sets.):

      One, of course, is Fred. The other is a teensy-weensy porg that comes with a 3.75-inch scale Chewbacca figure from Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

      I might have a 6-inch scale Star Wars The Black Series porg in my closet….I will get back to you on that at some point.
