Nicely bruced at 1445 hrs, stardate 08 Sept YOOL 1012.

Gateway shopping center, Gaineville, VA, close to the Lowes, the Best Buy, and a bank . . . .

Instead of a gator propped up against a tree, I see . . .



. . . and a note from the runaway.



So, I add one of my own, then replace the note and the stick.



Plus the gratuitous motorsickle porn.



Rode back home looking at the rapid buildup of really dark clouds in my mirrors, let the dogs out to poop, and wham! Humungous thunderbumper and a tornado warning!

Someone's lookin' out fer me--if I'd grabbed da gator I'd a been soaked in that frog strangler!

Nice afternoon ride and as it turned out, my timing was perfect.

Can't wait to find out how Ali liked swimming to the next tag . . . . .

GRAB! 13:00 hours
Lowe's Of Gainesville

13000 Gateway Center Dr., Gainesville, VA, 20155

I couldn't believe Ali was still there! Gotta laugh at ORexpat, I thought about taking the ol airhead out. Would that have been a "real" one





TAG!!!
Ali was tired from watching the construction. He just wanted to find a place to chill out. Maybe have a drink or two. I knew of a place for just that. As we arrived, Ali asked "How did we get to Georgetown so fast???" I told him that it was not the road he was thinking of. He seemed unamused, as a gator would. Then, when we got to the chill spot, he remarked "They don't make wine out of pears! Where are we?" I explained that a name didn't imply what the wine was made of. Now, Ali seemed interested but, as usual, indecisive. So, with black clouds in the distance, I set Ali at the entrance so he could make up his own mind. He is contemplating his next move while sitting at the base of the sign in the background, slightly covered with the purple flowers.
(and yes, I got very wet on the way home!)

Interesting road names out there. Old Alexandria Turnpike, Georgetown Road along with Old Baltimore.

New Tag:

Ali is at the end of a long log



Covered with some grass and twigs




The location is a baseball stadium located near a fairly busy intersection.

The log would be a the bottom of the picture - except the picture was cut off.



I don't think you can see the name of the complex in the picture above, but maybe
you can. The complex is named for a person. It is 2 initials and a last name.


The initials can be used as a latin abbreviation for "for example"

They also are the initials of a an American actor, best known for his roles as the lawyer
Lawrence Preston on The Defenders in the 1960s

The last name is shared by the person who wrote the music (not the words)
to the music that became the Star Spangled Banner - the tune was written around 1799.

The last name is also shared by a person who ran unsuccessfully for president against
Hubert Hoover - the "happy warrior" many called him.

A local singer-songwriter was doing a photo shoot of sorts at the baseball complex



I purchased a cd from him.



Finally, the bike at the new tag..

Ali wasn't real sick - just seemed "petrified" compared to her old self.

Added clue:

Real Housewives of Manassas up in here at the girls baseball games. Control yourselves parents.

The wifey and I were just talking about the music to the anthem last night! BTW, those are some good clues. Are you a history teacher?
