And I hope you get the tag today.... seems like its been in Tree City forever, and I'd like to see a pic of the 'Coast.

Thanks Fearless. That was my first time cruising the neighborhood through there. There are some really cool homes.
I like the mixture of old and rustic combined with new and classy. Yep, no job does bite a bit. I've given at the blood
bank, the baby making bank and now ready to collect aluminum cans and scrap iron. LOL. But yep, I have been cruising
my butt off and loving it!

OK. I know I read a post that said all I have to do is paste the link into the reply and voila. I did that and I don't see a thing. I did see some message that popped up saying my post would not show until......then it disappeared. So now I'm attempting with the insert picture thingy link.

(And you wonder how an IT person like myself can be out of work? I can't figure it out either.)

Bless you Fearless. This cool location is Lakeshore Dr. in the city of Pine Lake in DeKalb Co. Don't speed through this little city cause that's all the fine officers in blue have to do.

New Tag

Thanks to Fearless, I am ready to post the new tag. Now I understand why the name Fearless applies. Even Ting couldn't scare him off. Alrighty.....new tag:

Hey Mon. You want jerk or curry? Come to the unincorporated town ITP in DeKalb Co. Great Scott mon. Ponce on your trusty mount and come to the corner where North meets East.

Greetings my long lost friends....

I am back


Sorry if I left anyone wondering where the hell I ran off to, but my career needed some more TLC and for those of you that remember, I had two gentlemen in 2 years that faceplanted hard and between those things, I sold the KTM 9fiddy, but kept the DRZ and took a bit of time off from riding. Until........ out of no where....

My wife decided she wanted to ride with me and asked for a helmet and gear for Mothers Day, well I knew she just wouldn't be happy riding on the 2x4 seat that is the DRZ, so I took the plunge and bought a beast of a beemer... Time to start breaking the bike in as it has less than 100 miles on it, so... we are going to start a little mommy/daddy time on two wheels.

Today we went out to have a stroll and ended up snagging this..

Caribbean Chicken and Fish is located at 3358 E Ponce De Leon Ave, Scottdale, GA 30079



We had to get back home to rescue the kids from grandma's house

I will place a new tag in the next 24 +/- hours.

to riding again in the excessive suburbia...

Let me know if I need to update post #1 with any rule modifications you folks have made while I was away.

New tag

The man that called this home was born August, 26, 1839 and this home is located in the county seat. In 1863 he rose to second in command of the 3rd Georgia Sharpshooters.

He also later served in the Georgia General Assembly. The historical marker for the house is on the street corner.




The house is now a business and I did not want to trespass to get the photo, you too can park in the abandoned gas station across the street to get this vantage point.

New tag, this one should be easy.

ps: Join the Grand Tour of Georgia and you too can have fun finding these tags.

The Roy Rogers exhibit on Main St. in Buford GA.

Roy Rogers brought Trigger to Buford, GA to utilize the services of Jack Johnson, who was the last living Bona Allen Tannery saddle maker. Mr. Johnson made custom saddles for the Hollywood folks, including the stars from the show
Bonanza.

Little known facts surrounding this famous visit is that while Trigger was being housed at a nearby stable, the Lone Ranger was also in town with Silver. Seeing how sensitive the Hollywood egos can be, apparently a few words and nays were exchanged between Trigger and Silver. Then there was rump bumping and soon, full out hoof-ta-cuffs ensued. The two horses were shortly after seperated and housed in different livery stables. The news was kept under wraps to keep down the paparazzi.

This was a miracle due to the fact that news coverage was right down the street at the Buford Vet. They were covering the birth of Lassie's pups. Concern about Rin Tin Tin being the true father was being questioned.

Ting's Step by Step Guide to Community Prominence

1) Get yourself downtown Atlanta
2) Find yourself near a STATION in life.(Amtrack or Atlantic will do)
3) Get on the STREET of a religious figure.(Like a priest or BISHOP)
