Is this how you would treat your Mother-in-law?



Sorry Mom, I'm a bad son.

Mr Tiki's been enjoying Pittsburgh so much he doesn't want to leave.
Don't buy it? OK. maybe it's more like life getting in the way.
But seriously, if you haven't hosted him you don't know what it's like. So many things you want to show him, and so little time.

Required Pittsburgh shot from Mount Washington (showing the "Golden Triangle", the head of the Ohio River and a funicular:


Stopped by Mellon Square, a great MCM downtown park to take in the old AlCOA world headquarters on the left and William Penn Hotel on the right (where Bob Hope proposed to Dolores, and where Lawrence Welk first used a bubble machine, a left over from a movie premier):


Then we went farther afield,
Fallingwater:


Homer Laughlin, look at those Fiestaware seconds:


Since we were in WV thought we'd stop by Young's Cafeteria, mmm coconut cream pie:


Couldn't miss Dean's hometown of Stuebenville, OH between them:


and Canonsburg, PA, hometown of Perry Como (and Bobby Vinton, but he doesn't get a singing statue, yes, singing, they pipe Perry Como tunes out of it):


more to come...

A singing statue? Sound like something Lewis Carroll would have thought up!

I understand that if you run into a statue of a composer who has died that it's fair to assert that he's decomposing...

ba-dum-bump...

Just realized it's Jimmy Stewart's birthday.
Here's Mr Tiki hanging out with "Mr Smith" in Indiana, PA:

The statue is at the courthouse (with another indoors at the Jimmy Stewart Museum nextdoor within the library), it was dedicated on Jimmy's 75th birthday so it's only fitting to post this today.
Also: the crossing signal at the light at the museum has a Rich Little Jimmy Stewart impersonation letting you know when it's safe to cross.
"Ah, ah, ah... This is Jimmy Stewart and the light is on to cross Philadelphia Street"

It wasn't all "cujlture" MR Tiki got out to party also, don't worry.
I've noticed (not just with Mr Tiki) that most of my pics don't have people in them.
Let's not go into what that might say about my psyche.
But when they do, they tend to look like this:
Tiki Tuesday at the Tiki Lounge:


or this, get it together people!


Here he is with the new meat of the Westmoreland Roller Derby (started by some ohana, Trader Don and his wife, who also started Tiki Tuesdays!):


Maybe a little more culture, thought he'd get a kick out of roasting those darned Mormon missionaries:

The Benedum, formerly the Stanley movie theater, location of Bob Marley's last concert (And I had to show a theater in the birthplace of them, Pittsburgh, place of the first Nickelodeon and the Warner Brothers' old stomping grounds).

Mr. Tiki come back!
I was wrong about Ohio.
What we have to offer...
RAIN, Not just some rain but 13 days strait of rain, plus you get the
grey no sun overcast skies to go with your rain filled Ohio days.
Do not fret for tomorrows forecast is for...
you guessed it more rain.

Oh Mr. Tiki sun filled summer days are not what's in these days.
And who needs summer anyway, soon our three months of "nice" weather will be over
and we will be right back to winter.

I deem Ohio a harsh uninhabitable local.
Get out of the Midwest as FAST as you can Mr. Tiki!

I think Pittsburgh Pauly has some more photos of Mr. Tiki, but he has traveled to me. A whopping 5 miles or so. He's been all over already, and I need to take the time to post all of the wonderful photos of the places he's been and people he's met. In the meantime, does anyone who is going to HRHH want to take Mr. Tiki II to their neck of the woods? Requirements: Take good care of him, take him to lots of tiki places/people or he gets sad, try not to spill too much booze on him (or allow him to spill too much booze on himself), and I don't care what he tells you, don't let him go cliff diving!

PS - Either that, or there should be enough time to get him to the Hanalei for Tiki O!

I wasn't going to post more, I didn't want to bore anybody to death with rustbelt Americana, but since Mr Tiki is languishing away in Pixburgh , here goes!

Gobbler's Knob (no Punxsutawney Phil in site):


Wall of China in West Virginia w/Homer Laughlin's Trader Vic's charger:


Diplodocus carnegii (aka Dippy):


Mr Rogers' Neighborhood:


and I'll end it with Hale Tiki and Mr Tiki together in Pan Am Pia's Layover Lounge:


Now show us were he's been lately Lucky!
