Double (Triple!!) Bruce, Grab and Tag!

Bruced also--double brucing, at Kaiser. (Wonder what they think--first Xd drops the tag, then NoVa Rider picks it up, then I come by, then Nib comes by . . . )!

But, just as I pulled into the parking lot, my semi-smart phone tinkled it's little pants, and lo! NoVa Rider gave a clue as to the new location . . . and even without a picture I knew where it was . . . Terra Center Elementary School not two minutes ride away!

So I pull in; if NoVa was posting from his phone I might catch him in the act. So I rode through the parking lot . . . no yellow GS. Phone tinkles again, and lo again--there's the photos. Roll back through the lot, and here's the spot! (Star date 1935 hrs, 2 Aug, YOOL 2012).



Here's the gator!



Gator and bike, of course.



Cool mural.



And the school sign . . .



And a note for the next brucing . . . already found!!! (I realized after I took the photo I'd written the wrong time . . . so Nib's got the correct version).

Checkthe satellite photos. The school does appear as a playground!

"So where to now?" I ask.

"Man, I've been really busy these last few days. I need to really learn how to rest and relax. Maybe some of that Eastern religion stuff."

"I know just the spot; we passed it yesterday--you were in my pocket so I think you should have seen it. You can get in the lotus position, maybe go to temple, meditate a bit; the road's named for a guy supposedly buried under the National Pike. XD knows it well."

Star date 2000, 2 August, YOOL 2012. Money shot, slightly edited . . . .





before covering.



After covering.



Looking left.



Looking right.



Overt tag again. A night time grab would be quite feasible . . .

Fast action, gang!

For clue fans, back to the Kaiser Permanente tag: Henry J. Kaiser manufactured and sold the "Henry J." automobile, after World War II. During the War, his company built Liberty and Victory ships; unique for the time in that their hulls were WELDED, rather than riveted.

The Kaiser Permanente Foundation is the not-for-profit health-care organization whose local offices are at 5999 Burke Commons Road.

Now, go grab Ali!
