Yea! If I didn't have to run home so fast I would have definitely gone for this one!

By the fire hydrant:


Beneath the rocks:


Looking left:


Looking back:


Looking right:


The fire station:


The clues:

Having enjoyed the day with a beverage, I found Ali mumbling the Jenny tune by Tommy Tutone, "867-5209, 867-5209." "Silly gator," I chuckled, "your last three digits are off by 100." By the time I got him upright and back to the bike, our galloping gator decided he wished to go play in a yard and then go shopping. I wanted to go to Potomac.

To find Ali, find the fire hydrant behind the fire station where we could do both. Hint -- it's on a main line, or street, depending on which map search engine you use. Also, if you search for the fire station, you may find that Ali is more helpful than you think!

Happy Tagging!

For historical accuracy . . .

Jenny = Tommy Tutone

Jessie's Girl = Rick Springfield

Wouldn't want somebody to get their parachute pants in a bunch.

I wonder if they are related to yellow snow?

A venerable Arlington Landmark. It was even in a Foo Fighters song. But I don't think clues are really necessary.



Gator is under the bush against the wall visible past the front tire.

Knew where it was on the first pic. Then second guessed myself 10min because I didn't realize they put a fire house in. And Butters was whining about not getting a good bike pic last night, so I thought I'd give him one tonight.

A little bird just told me that this might not be a single tag night...

Alas, if whining only worked with the ladies . . .

The pics are great, but you didn't have to wax the bike beforehand just for me.
