TIKI




(cheap, ripped off tiki, and Gary Rith's tiki mugs)
My pal David came over the other day. He remembered that a year ago I had made some tiki stuff (2 lower pictures) and that I had a classic tiki zombie mug from a garage sale (probably a restaurant before that) and so he told me a story and gave me the cup, top right:
Last summer having had several zombies he pocketed this cup and walked away with it. Despite the fact that he is a prominent local politician (I could link, but I bet he doesn't want me too!!!) and also an Eagle Scout. The cup rode around in his car all year before he remembered to give it to me. Just what I need, now I have a collection of 2!

Well, Tiki masks have always scared the stuffing out of Chatty, and yours is scarier than most! But beautifully scary ; ) Chatty is also afraid of clowns, btw. Don't you judge her! Oh, OK, go ahead. She knows how pathetic that is.
She loves "Spike in a Box" It reminds her of "Toot in Cleo's Bucket" - both of them ALMOST fit, and they look so uncomfortable, yet seem to be so happy...
Nice going with the kitten - you get to have the fun of a kitten for a couple of days, AND you get a nice six-pack. By the time the six pack is gone, with luck the kitten will also be gone. Home. And, congrats on the baseball tix. You have a nice wife. How far are you from Toronto? Chatty thinks it's rather cool that you are LEAVING THE COUNTRY to see a baseball game. Very suave. Have a nice weekend, Gary

Thanks Chatty and all, and we are about midway between Toronto and NY city. TO is maybe 4-5 hour drive? The last half, Buffalo onward, has a LOT of traffic.

My Rith-original tiki mug occupies a place of honour on my bar. :-)
