Don't worry. If no one claims Ali in the next two hours he will probably still be pretty close to your work....

Dude, its dark out!

GRAB!
The Stone House, intersection of Lee Hwy and Sudley Rd Manassas



That's the best you are going to get. There are no streetlights there and I didn't want to traipse around Park Service property at night.

Anyway, Ali said he was bored of just being dumped at places. So what do you want to do?
"I want to see a movie. I really like movies with Sandra Bulloch. Anything that has her drive"
Well, I don't know of any films in which she is currently appearing, but there is a 14% chance that you can see her in this nearby theatre. I understand it is quite regal. Very well apportioned. The sometimes show old Navy films. If you get hungry, you can grab a pizza at the place from the president's hometown. Luckily its close by. Don't worry about getting lonely, there is a 66% chance you will be found by lunchtime. Someone will probably see you from their RV.

Now, the pics:
Ali is in the flowers that surround this sign



In the purple, in front of that spindly little tree



See the purple just beneath the throttle?? That's where you will find a gator awaitin


and one more for the hell of it, though it sucks

Yes, Arlington. And with all the time I've spent working in Arlington, I've never seen her once! Except in the movies, of course.

I think the road between my house and that tag should be classified as RLD-West. Most jurisdictions try to sync their stoplights so traffic moves smoothly. I guess others like to sync them so you can stop every quarter mile. I bet I could grab a tag in the real RLD quicker than I could get to that on.

Um, on a day like this, there is no reason for Ali to sit much longer

Bruced?

9:10 AM



FWIW, I'm not a huge fan of flower bed tags, because without a marker or reference in the flower bed, the flowers all look the same and I'm never quite sure where to look. I did bring the tag photo, and looked in the purple flowers SB12 indicated, but didn't find Ali. I didn't want to tear up the flower bed, so snapped the pic and departed.

SB12, if no one claims by noon, perhaps a confirmation is in order (and a marker if Ali's still there).
