About half a mile from where I'm camped out, waiting for the movers. And DaughterBird is just across the street . . . .

NoVaRider's tag was interesting; I'd mentioned that it was near where I'm "camped" until the movers come Monday. SweetBird (ORexpat bride) was out walking DaughterBird's dogs and saw him planting the tag, and since he's wears a banana suit and yellow helmet too, she thought "What the heck's Dan doing tagging? He's supposed to be at his last day at work??? Jeez!" Then she saw the yellow bike, and recalled that I'd driven in yesterday.

So I knew where the tag was before NoVa even posted it . . . but since I was at work, XD got it!

Not a problem; I didn't get home until about 2000 last night anyway--way too late to keep up with the KLRistas!

And with the icy snow, think I'll let Ali rest--though it's pretty easy to figure where he's at . . .

Now that's too funny! Especially as I wasn't there too long, hoping to avoid having to explain to FFX's finest why I'd docked the GSA on the sidewalk to take pictures next to a horse's head.

Of course, the tagging would have been problematic because the scene would change with the melting snow.

Ali was a bit pissed at being left out in the snow. Being cold-blooded, it was no fun. She tried to take it out on me, but I'm not going to have any part of that. I wanted to show her that her behavior was a dead end. I warned her that my friend Ellanor who owned Cabell's Mill was quite fond of gator skin belts. Did you know that Ali's favorite Tree is the Poplar? Now you do.

So, here is the dead end for Ali




Ali will be at the Don't Have ANY Fun sign


No camo since no one should be walking around here


One last shot to help you out


I had a better location in mind, but when I was getting some New Albion at Total Wine in Chantilly, it started snowing, so I had to hurry up and get home

Ali was waiting uncovered, just as SB12 promised (he sort of gave me the stink eye about that):



The bike pics:





Another one of those didn't know that was there tags, so thanks!

New tag in the works . ..

Back in December, mriderleon pm'd me a theme tag to post 9998. As he appears to be momentarily bike challenged, here it is:




You'll find Ali hidden under this chunk of wood:


Marked like so:


Looking left:


Looking right:


A bonus pic:


The clue: find the Post 9998 theme tag that should be HBN friendly, but isn't. The greek mathematician Euclid will help you get there.

As an aside, I was going to take a pic of the establishment from the front, but there were signs there saying that it was illegal to talk to inmates. Not part of the clue, but not kidding. . .. Major kudos if you get a pic of that parking lot sign. (I was chick'n).

Happy tagging!

At least two inmates have uncovered the tag (both OGs), with one being ORex, who is in the game but out of gas. . .. (tanks have been drained for transport).

Icy conditions tonight, but Tuesday shows temps nearing 60 degrees!

Happy tagging!
