The Tiki Came Back ( A Tiki poem)

The Tiki Came Back

The Tiki was cursed
Its eyes glowed red
It had sharp metal spikes growing out of its head

We had found it laying in a pile of trash
Surrounded by something that looked like ash

It reeked like sulfur 
                                        Like something out of hell
I knew when Tommy touched it -  
That it wouldn’t turn out well

He pulled his hand back
He yelled “It feels hot”
Then his hand began to smolder
His skin began to rot.

We turned to run
Tommy fell down
Twitching and rolling all over the ground

We ran around the corner
And then looked back
The Tiki was gone
And where Tommy lay was more ash

We swore to never speak of it again
We made a pact
But several years later
The Tiki came back

Rum that I will have to try of the month: White Rum has a new Captain

I just thought I'd share this new Rum ad that I saw on TV.   Can't wait to try it and loved the shattering Tiki mugs in the commercial.

The Pineappleman's Tiki Bucket List

Here is my Tiki Bucket List.

1 & 2.  Palm Springs Trip........ 

1. SHAG Store 

I absolutely love SHAG's artwork. The playful Tiki, Retro and Disney artwork in its vibrant colors is right up my alley.    Below is one of the SHAG related things I got this year for Christmas. 
 I have some SHAG  drink glasses  and several books of his artwork, shirts and Haunted Mansion coasters, etc.   We love seeing him out and about at Tiki Oasis every year so it is a no brainer that my Tiki bucket list includes a trip to Palm Springs to visit the SHAG store.

and  the new Palm Springs  2. Tonga Hut

We have been planning a Wine vacation up to the Russian River Valley with a stop over in San Francisco where we hope to mark off a couple of Tiki spots from our bucket list.

5.  Aulani
 And currently the whole family is dying to head out to the Disney Resort Aulani.  It is Disney and Polynesian and therefore a most see for us.
