As usual Ali was hungry! I was going to take Ali to the fab chicken place "CFA" but that's where I took Ali the last time we had a meal. So I went here.



Ali is acting a little postal, so I need to place the little alligator pretty soon. I need to eat first. So poor Ali will have to wait for a little while.

Ali did indeed go postal. I had to get Mr. Golansky to calm Ali down.

Why did Ali go Postal. It's a long story, but I'll see if I can summarize it.

Ali was tired of being cold and lonely out by the one lane bridge near Haymarket. So Ali called me using AliApp on my phone. I told Ali I was going to be there about 5pm. I was low on gas, but thought that I could stretch out the gas on my tank to about 240 miles. Long story short, I only made it 230 miles. So I was out of gas on the side of Rt 66, between Business 234 and By-Pass 234. Sort of embarrassing, but now I know how far I can go once my low fuel indicator comes on.

With some help of the wife, we called Progressive, and they brought out some gas! They are pretty quick too. But I was about 1 1/2 hours late in retrieving Ali, so Ali was quite neurotic. And I think I only acerbated the situation by stopping by the Regal Cinema's in Manassas to look for Ali's twin. Oh well, at least Ali managed to get some chicken out of the deal.



Even with a belly full of chicken, Ali was still going postal on me. Trying to nip at the waitresses other patrons. It wasn't pretty.

So I took Ali here, just as Mr. Golansky instructed me to.



Ali is at the base of this tree right behind the S10.



Here is Ali digging into the mulch.



Happy Tagging!

That's funny, as all the images for that post are on Photobucket. Anyone else having trouble seeing them? If so, I'll repost them.

Grab and Tag!

So i was really disappointed that the weather was not cooperating this morning. I had decided that with the snow/sleet and cold temps I was not going after Ali. Then as the day wore on it got warmer, drier and the sun even started peeking out. So about 1:30 my son and I decided to make the grab and enjoy a little ride.

The grab,

U.S. Post office, 3360 Post Office road, Woodbridge.

My son waking Ali up!

The tag,

Ali said he wanted to get back to his natural habitat and with the cold temps maybe do a little ice skating. So we followed some shepherds to this nice 77 acre lake but unfortunately the ice was too brittle for skating. Ali still liked the view so we left him there to enjoy himself.

Ali is at the base of the signpost!

Happy tagging and Happy New Year everyone!
