I am posting this on behalf of Tikikate as she is unable to get online very easily . She was on shout today and told us what had happened to her.

Some of you may have heard that a car crashed through her house last night. It was a stolen car being pursued by police. One bedroom and a bathroom were destroyed. She has also lost half of her mug collection , Shag prints , Tiki farm mugs , Doug Horne and Tim Biskoff stuff. There was minor flooding as a water main broke.

No one was hurt thankfully!!

She is staying with her sister and is unable to go home until the insurance company says her house is safe to do so.
Kate will try to get online too keep us posted as to what is going to happen.

Man that ReallyHurts. First as Ono said, we are very glad you are OK, that could have been very different, Whew! I also would guess that the insurance peeps will have a hard time evaluating the value of some of your things, Damn it.
I Hope everything works out OK. If we can help at all, just say the word.

I am so sorry to hear this. Tiki-Kate is a passionate collector and also a very nice person. She has 293 mugs listed on ooga-mooga. At least that may help in documenting her loss for the insurance company.

She very generously offered to help me get a mug I was seeking, and another time offered to replace a pendant.

When you're ready, I hope you'll let us help you rebuild your collection.

I think the Farm should help out as best as we can. Kate has been a long time collector of our mugs. I would like to donate 12 mugs of all new designs over the next 12 months with an additional 3 of those being limited editions. I hope this is a small sign of what our Ohana has to offer!
Mahaloz,
Holden

How bizarre! Kate, I can generate an inventory of your collection with estimated replacement costs for the insurance company, I've sent you a PM with details.

Its a terrible thing to loose all those mugs but it dose mean that Tikikate has taken PolynesianPop's crown in the most "tiki mug misfortunes".

I wanted to thank you all for the kind words of support and all of the generous offers that I've received.

Forgive me if I don't respond to all of you for about a week or so.

I haven't been able to even start assessing the loss of the collectables. What really broke my heart was losing so many things in that room that had belonged to my mother. Those can never be replaced. All in all, I'm just glad to be alive.

The police clocked the car thief doing 100mph when he hit my house.





My insurance company is taking good care of me so far.

I'm hoping the house will be inhabitable again in the next few days.

Thanks for letting everyone know what happened, rodeotiki.

You really are the best people.

Kate

Unreal. And Holden should be placed in the hall of the righteous. Do you own the house?

Kate:

You were one of my inspirations to get a digital camera to share my collection
on ooga-mooga. I am so sorry that this indescribable accident has happened to you. I am floored actually.
Our prayers are with you. I know how devastating this is to lose your Mother's things, which cannot be replaced. We had a fire at our ranch in Nogal, New Mexico in 1983, and all my Mother's photos of her family and our kiddy photos were destroyed.
Let us know how the insurance is resolved, and what we should do as far as supplemental homeowners.
