Rounding off the afternoon I will head down to the new ballpark to watch the Phillies-Cardinals game at 1600.




I bet you'd get on TV if you dressed one of the tikis up in an aloha shirt and a goofy hat.

Mission Accomplished!

1/2 tank of gas- $24
PA Turnpike tolls - $4.50
5 hours time - $500
1 Bottle of Murphy's Oil Soap - $4
1 roll of paper towels - $1
Perserving PA tiki history - Priceless

I did confirm that while none of these tikis came from the venerable Kona Kai they did come from lots Mr. Neri purchased at auction from Pub Tiki in Philly and Langerman's Luau ex- of Narberth, PA.

Here are before and after photos of the tikis I secured on 14 July:

Question: How much dirty dusty old tiki relics can you fit in an RX330?


Dusty Details:








The tales (tails?) this wad of ABC gum could tell!



Original auction tags:



After 3 hours, 1 MaiTai and 1 Navy Grog: Troops are standing tall and ready for inspection, Sir!









What a great adventure in urban archeology! Roll credits....

What was the story with this fella who's in a couple of your pics? Looks a lot like a Bumatay....

That's a very nice assortment of tikis - thanks for sharing. Pics like these are grist for the creative mill.
