TC seems to mostly be a couples thing. Not that many single folk here, and those that are single are scattered hither and yon. It was hard enough dating someone who lived in Oxnard. Dating someone in San Francisco, Seattle or further I just don't see.

The one good thing about being a tiki lover
in the midwest...maybe the only thing...is
that I've had a chance to mingle with the
likes of Finkdaddy and Rebecca...LakeSurfer...tikibars...Exotica 59..and EsQui and Lissette...even the
now-departed TikiToa...and let me tell you
that Finkdaddy is the real deal...good to
know you!

Hey Finkdaddy, I'm honoured to know you count me as one of your mates. Its good to have you on here (even though you been on here longer than me...)

I have learnt that TC leads to a decrease in my efficiency in undertaking internet research for my studies. If I fail I will hold the administrators liable and sue their asses off. Well, maybe not. But I wont be happy!

I have also learnt that the general community does not have any idea about tiki, and in no way should be confused with TC folk. "What do you mean by a tiki bar?"

I made a friend on Yahoo Tikicentral in the year 2000. (She never made the migration to Tikicentral.com.) All of a sudden, 5 years later, she and I are together. Very unexpectedly. But together. Does that count?

It happens when you least expect it.

Buying raw materials to make tiki stuff, Actually making Tiki Stuff, Attending Events, Home Parties, Meeting people for lunch, entertaining out of town TC guests, Tiki Road Trips, Tiki Vacations, Buying Stuff from your artisian friends, selling stuff, showing up to support your musician friends.




Agreed. It's taking over. I really have fallen in love with you guys and the spirit you invoke. (or spirits)

Congrats, finkdaddy..may there be many more.

Happy,Happy,Happy,Happy

I've learned:
> that I can make new friends who happen to be hundreds of miles away but may never get to meet them in person.
> that I was wrong about my fear of joining a "chat" site.
> that I have more creative talent than I ever thought.
> that I look good in a "Hawaiian" shirt.
> that my wife was SOOOOO right about buying that old rotting wooden idol thingy that I drove so far in the rain to look at!! (I love you Mrs. 8 FT.
> that Hanford Lemoore is a very cool dude whose vision has made a real difference in many of our lives. THANKS MAN!
> that I probably really belong in So. Cal
but the roots are deep in this Missouri clay.
> most of all I have learned what tiki is to me and I hope all of you have discovered that as well.

TC is a big family. It has lots of great, fun, loving people, but it also has a few relatives no one talks about. I am discovering from TC that I am a little of both.
