Tacky Magnets II Sep 08, 2012
My goodness – it was 5-1/2 years ago that I tried to instigate a “tacky magnet” competition. Although I only got a few takers (and was roundly out-classed), it seems like time to take inventory and measure my progress as a tacky world traveler. So I clicked another photo of our refrigerator sporting the collection of attractive attractions we have amassed through years of venturing. I only had 24 the first time and despite an impressive percentage growth rate, the new tally of 41 still seems sorely lacking.

I never made a point of picking up tacky magnets; it was solely a fun impulse before TB. Now I can assure you I endeavor to score this memento every time I head out. So what do you have? The ground rules are rather basic: duplicates for the same place count so long as it isn’t an identical magnet. I’ve attempted to label the locations in my photo by roughly proceeding from left-to-right, top-to-bottom from the picture:

1. Alaska, USA (grizzly bear)

2. Reunion, FR (Bourbon Beer, known locally as “dodo’s”)

3. Luckenbach, TX, USA

4. Watkins Glen, NY, USA

5. Bath, Maine, USA

6. Akron, OH, USA (National Inventor’s Hall of Fame)

7. Old Baldy Lighthouse (Bald Head Island, NC, USA)

8. Cadillac Mountain, Maine, USA

9. Netherlands (Dutch clogs)

10. Hawaii, USA (‘hang loose’ variety)

11. Reunion, FR (island map)

12. South Padre Island, TX

13. Orlando, FL, USA (Space Mountain – Disney World)

14. Maui, HI, USA

15. New Mexico, USA

13. Firenze, Italy (Duomo at night)

14. Matamoras, Mexico (sombrero)

15. New Orleans, LA, USA

16. Monhegan Island, ME, USA

17. Hawaii (‘gecko’ version)

18. Dubai, United Arab Emirates (veiled woman + camel in desert)

19. Bahla, Oman

20. Napa Valley, CA, USA (wine bottle)

21. Vernazza, Italy

22. Cave Creek, AZ, USA (waving cactus)

23. Kelley’s Island, OH, USA

24. Charleston, SC, USA (she-crab soup recipe)

25. Lancaster, PA, USA (Amish Country)

26. Cape Elizabeth, ME, USA (Portland Head Lighthouse)

27. Outer Banks, NC, USA (OBX)

28. Jamaica

29. Arizona, USA

30. Wadi Rum, Jordan

31. Maine, USA (state map)

32. Vieques, PR, USA Territory

33. San Antonio, TX, USA (Alamo)

34. Puerto Rico, USA Territory

35. Drumnadrochit, Scotland

36. Madaba, Jordan

37. Outer Banks, NC, USA (ship)

38. North Carolina, USA (Ferry System)

39. Yosemite, CA, USA

40. Boston, MA, USA (New England Aquarium)

41. Netherlands (frites building)

So only 41. Can you kick my butt by posting a photo documenting your amazing collection???

Thanks to this review, I just went back and had a look at mine. My most cringeworthy one is of a tuk tuk and a monkey sticking out of it (picked it up in Thailand). Talk about one way of ruining a memory of a fantastic trip!
