The House Of Wax

Started Standard Oil and remained silent 50% owner, started ultra fancy hotel chain, owned railroad and in his heyday richest person in the world, now immortal as most everything in Florida named after him. 


  As you may recall I went to St Augustine for two flying lessons and plenty of time for sight seeing. I rode the Old Town Trolley as I have been satisfied with their service in the past. This time I went into Potter's Wax Museum which was used to make a spooky movie back in the early 50's. Hence the title of the post. It was started in 1946 and changed hands a few times and the kids sold quite a few figures for quick cash. There is still about half of the original figures left and a lot of new ones added by the new owners who make them.  


Kramer, I am too much like him

  The weather was 72 and Sunny for my three days I enjoyed there.





  Now I am back at the Cabana trimming palms and other plants in the back yard. We were too busy in the Fall to do it. I do not have to worry about killing and plants, as down here a leaf dropped will grow into a tree. It is amazing how quickly things grow.


Princess Di


  Time is short for my departure. We board a plane at four PM on the 14th. I leave here on the 11th to pick then up in Miami on 12th and then it will be hectic getting her friend to airport on the 13th.


I will never live in a house on Elm Street


  Disney has been very hot in the afternoons. It was 92 degrees yesterday and I rode 4 rides and left. I had planned to stand in line for the concert, but decided I could not tolerate the heat.



I said "excuse me" to Mr Hemingway as he looked like another tourist


  Read Owners Manual before attempting to change air filter. I decided since I had not changed the air filter on the car in over 7 years and 112000 miles, it might need changing. I was suspicious when the kid at the parts store gave me a small round filter. The box on the car is a large rectangle. So after confirming I had the correct part, I changed it today. Pain in ass to replace, but I do not have a owners manual ( that I can find anyway.) The old filter was dirty, but could have gone another 10 years. 


WWII bad actors


  I have secured a garage for the Sebring, it will have over 204, 000 miles when stored. I have a rental van reserved for the car swap and return to airport. I have address and time to return my internet router. The only change leaving this Winter is, I will turn water off at street. This is because a two+ year old is getting good at turning faucets.
  Update: 204526 miles on Sebring, on jack stands with trickle charger installed. Tags good until Oct 2019.


WWII The Good Actors

  My nephew told me Spring arrived in Bath Canada this week and his yard is all dandelions.   Time to watch paint dry.
