Geocache Description:

This is a one of a kind, free toilet seat museum, located in a neighborhood in Alamo Heights (inside San Antonio) Texas

Yes, you read it right. This museum is located in the detached garage of Barney Smith.
Just knock on the door of his house and he will come out and give you the grand tour of his 1000 and counting, decorated toilet seats. There is no sign.
The coordinates are for a side street that is beside the garage.
Barney loves to show video clips of his museum that have been featured on the Today show, Good Morning America, and local newscasts. He is a local legend and just turned 92 years old, so don't delay-we don't know how much longer Barney will be with us.
None of the toilet seats are for sale, so don't bother asking. Barney just loves to talk and will explain the idea behind each toilet seat if you let him.
To get credit for this cache, email me the answer this question - where are all the toilet seats commemorating Barney's birthdays?

Barney is a little hard of hearing and doesn't move very fast, so you may have to ring the doorbell several times.

UPDATE Sept. 2008 - It would be good to call Barney first at 210-824-7791 to set up a window during which you can be sure he will be available. Don't be shy.....he LOVES geocachers!!
