Hot Enough for You?

May 31, 2012

It certainly seems that the summer heat is here early this year!  I can’t imagine what it will be like come July.  

 I wanted to share a photo with you from the Springtime in Atlanta Convention held this past Spring.  There are a lot of different Coca-Cola items people collect, not just bottles. In fact, I would say that old bottles is one of the least collected items in the Club . Here is a passel of Coca-Cola thermometers as well as some Sprite and Tab thermometers someone had for sale. They certainly would come in handy this summer.

If You Find Yourself in Daytona Beach….

If you find yourself in the Daytona Beach area this summer you might want to check out a small Coca-Cola display at a local museum. Here are the details: http://www.moas.org/americana.html

The Root family donated their collection years ago to the Museum of Arts and Science. It has some wonderful pieces.  Unfortunately taking photographs is not allowed. It is by no means a huge collection, but does have some interesting items.

If you have kept up with my blog and read my book (The Coca-Cola Bottle) you know my grandfather and father were a big influence on me and my bottle collecting.  I wanted to mention someone else who has encouraged me, my mother.

 I wanted to say a BIG thank you to my mother for letting me drag in all my various collections and hobbies into the house while I was growing up, such as rocks, fossils, coins, stamps, bricks (yes…I said bricks), shortwave radios, postcards, railroad spikes (yes…I said railroad spikes), soda cans, CB radio, trains, model cars and planes, and on and on and on.

 Thank you for putting up with all of my ‘collections’ and hobbies through the years, the inadvertent damage to furniture while putting together models, antennas draped out windows, bottles and rocks everywhere in my room, etc.

AND thank you to all the Mothers, everywhere who support their kids collections!

  HAPPY MOTHERS DAY!!!!
