I was out for a drive last night and passed through downtown Clearwater.
Three things of interest.
1. I happened to be there at 7:45 and there were a few people in front of the Ft Harrison and a couple of cars, but not many. And a few walking from the Parking Structure down by where the tent used to be (it was packed up for the 74,319 yard journey back to the UK in 612.3 shipping boxes weighing it at the equivalent of 73.8 fully grown Indian elephants). But certainly not the big influx of people for “Flag Graduation” one would expect at the Mecca of GAG. Perhaps Voldemort has given up on Graduation now that he doesn’t have anything to pre-sell.
2. The Coachman is being fumigated and is entirely covered in a yellow and white tent (maybe they had leftover stuff from the Grand Marquis Event Superdome and Voldemort decided he missed it so he had them drape it over the Coachman to remind of the “greatest moment in history” when he announced GAG II). Actually, its being done by Haskell pest and termite control. Must have had some serious issues in there. Of course its empty now as everything is in the Cathedral/Mecca/SP building. But really, is this up to Sea Org standards of cleanliness to have to fumigate the entire building for infestations?
3. A new sign for “Extras” on the pole outside the Cathedral/Mecca/SP building. Taking bets on what this is about:
a) Shooting a new video of GAG “successes” using actors?
b) Shooting a video to show the success of the new building and need it to look full and there aren’t enough people to do it?
c) There is a new sandwich shop opened called “Extras” that got permission from the church to put their sign on their lamppost in front of the C/M/SP building?
d) Some other explanation…
I did follow the arrow and it lead to the parking lot behind the Peace Memorial Church with a sign “Extras Parking.”
