  1. I remember reading the original post (and having a little chuckle)
    Just a small gesture by someone anonymous has given your post a great conclusion (another chuckle from me)
    Well done to whoever was nice enough to go to he effort to send you a new poster.

    That is awesome! I wonder who sent it….let me know if you ever find out! :)

  3. Lol. I love a happy ending. :)

  4. I find it possible that it was sent by The Force itself.

  5. Thank goodness! I wondered how the heck you were going to get the old one from behind that bookcase! The force in strong in you! And the odds, ever in your favor!
