Hey, mobile...did you pick yourself up one of those hula tops?
I have hit up the same 3 Big Lots twice each now--that's a whole lotta Big Lottin'! But guess what? At the last one I unexpectedly scored on the SOLAR TIKI!!! I'm still in shock. Persistence pays off (your lesson for the day).

..better run back to big lots..they now sell tiki bars for a mere $50....they have a thatched roof and all...real super cheesy, but would make a great portable bar that would be easy to set up in a hotel room at say, hukilau? perhaps...hint hint..

> Once again Big Lots! has released their spring tiki line for 2006.
Bought a bunch of the cheap plastic/melamine dinnerware with tikis
and the hawaiian shirt mini snack plates, a couple of the tiki paper
lanterns and a palm leaf tray (medium "clear" green plastic) and a
bright green tiki pitcher and 8 matching tiki tumblers. The last
items will be for use outdoors and around the pool (once I move to
a location where I can put in a pool) and most of the others will
be for serving food when I host tiki parties. MIGHT go back and get
the skim board if it is still there (only saw one) and the tiki bar
(saw one in the box and another set up for display). Haven't seen
Pele or the planter/bowls yet. They had a couple of the stacking
tiki's, both the same size and color. MIGHT buy a tiki bra in
case I ever meet the wahine of my dreams. Will have to try some of
the other BL's in Grand Rapids as well. Didn't see the patio light
sets either. They DID have the limbo set and I might get it too.
Also, got a "Salty The Parrot" rude talking parrot and a fake bowl
of fire lamp, plus an industrial/ship's passageway light as the
Spencer Gift store at the mall. I MIGHT get a BIG neon sign that
has a couple of palm trees in neon as well as "The Bar Is Open" in
neon as well. They want $200 for the sign, but I have a discount
card for 10% off and I MIGHT be able to get a bit more off as well.

Yeah, you know what? Some BASTARD, or maybe it's more than one person, by golly, but SOME BASTARD went to all the Big Lots stores in my area and bought all the good stuff. Now only the really awful stuff is left. So...which one of you did it? I'm only kidding. But it's true that someone has been going around here buying all the cool statues, etc.
