Funny, when I did my search, I found Jesse Jame's father, but this is what it read:

"Robert Sallee James was born in Logan County, Kentucky. He was the son of John M. James (1775-1827) and Mary G. James (née Poor). His grandfather, William James (1754-1805), came to the Colony of Virginia from England in the late 18th century."

I was looking up Jesse James the outlaw.

I'd come up with Pembrokeshire, Wales.

I can assure you that the cemetery is not on a lane by that name.

Not a grab - some Irish Lane

It was closer to my house than to TH's house, but he's got a bike and I don't.

I was there, but brought too many wheels.


Ali was still there as well.


Security on the cemetery appears to be rather lax.


I may have to take TH up on his offer to borrow a bike.

Leon.

I sucked at the Internets today. Le Bruce. Which was especially fun as I forgot to bring a clear visor, and a flashlight. Did the grab by Braille thing at the tag site,
and the Stevie Wonder thing on the way home. . ..

Grab Details!

When Boatman posted the new clue, he made it real easy. I looked it up and "Bonus" it was on my way home from work!

So drove by, and Ali was there!



I got Ali on "Dog"



My daughter was very excited to see Ali and promptly decided that Ali needed to get even furthe into the Christmas spirit. Ali wants to be Rudolph! So Ali got a red nose.



She was also very concerned that Ali didn't have a comfortable spot to sleep in at night, so she made Ali a nice box to sleep in.



Now it's time to tag Ali!

Tag - The Horror I tell you!

Well, not really horror, but Ali wanted to learn something about horoscopes. Especially what the various zodiac signs meant. So... We talked about many of the signs, for some reason Ali latched onto the zodiac sign that represented the twins and had the element of air. Hmmmm, it does appear that Ali does have a twin in the game from time to time, so that seemed appropriate.

Ali and I continued our discussion and while we were talking, I knew a way that Ali could get real close to that particular zodiac. And if the season was right, there is a farmers market in the same location. Though I doubt Ali would get to excited about the fruits and vegetables, but would prefer snacking on the shoppers.

So I took the long way to the sign of the above zodiac.



Ali's box by the funny looking tree in the corner of the parking lot.



A close up of Ali's box that my daughter made to keep Ali nice and comfortable (better than sleeping out in the open, she said).



And Ali all covered up.



And here is a photo of the parking lot, looking out of the corner wehre Ali is hiding.



Happy Tagging!

XDragRacer - Good catch, got distracted and pulled in multiple directions. But you are totally correct.

This is close to 4899 Asdee Lane, Woodbridge. Or approximately at this GPS. 38.689742,-77.355355

I will be sure to let my daughter know!

There is a homeless guy living in a tent less than 100' from the current hiding spot. He wasn't to happy when my dog sniffed him out last weekend. BTW... be careful where you walk around there,,,,, she took a big dump there.

I didn't see anyone, but I wasn't looking either! My boots are still clean, so I guess I missed the spot. Thank goodness!
