No. While that would most assuredly be a jackass, I am looking for the 4 legged variety.

OK, if a donkey is a show stopper, give me an animal rescue organization.

It's not the donkey, it's the lack of available seat time for me.

Grab! NOT.

5 - A sign, other than street signs, that tells you not to do something.

Well, shit. Just went for my first ride longer than to work and back in a few weeks, got what I thought was all five and just noticed the "other than street signs" part of this one. Son. Of. A. Bitch. Oh well, got all five in a 20 mile run. Too bad that one pegged the negatory-o-meter.

What the hell. I'll do it. It feel like a consolation grab, but I DID get to go for a real ride this evening. First in a couple weeks...

1 - A donkey, a live one. - ** edit - an animal rescue organization is optional **
I know where a donkey can be found. Just can't reach it during the week and my weekends are shot for riding for at least the next two. That being said, and the fact that I'm in full consolation grab mode... A cat rescue place.



2 - A place that repairs lawn equipment



3 - A car wash that hand dries the cars.
Drying by hand as the pic was snapped. How accommodating of them...



4 - A place that sells golf carts that is not a golf course.



5 - A sign that tells you not to do something.
Thanks to O2TAC for bending the rule on this one. Completely missed the original parameters.

New list - April 2, 2012

I'm still working on a new tag game based around music somehow. It'll probably end up being just another thread in the pictures area. With that in mind, one of my all-time favorite albums is Captain Beefheart's "Clear Spot". From that album, five of the songs that will lend themselves to this game are:

1) "Too Much Time" - get a watch repair shop

2) "My Head Is My Only House Unless It Rains" - snag an outdoor shelter of some sort that provides relief from the elements - a bus stop shelter, for instance.

3) "Clear Spot" - a clearing - an opening in the woods, a plowed field, etc.

4) "Long Neck Bottles" - a bar/pub. A place where the primary focus is drinking. Not some snooty wine bar or frozen margarita slurpee place, but a place that would scare lesser folks away.

5) "Her Eyes Are a Blue Million Miles" - get a picturesque shot of your bike with lots of blue sky in the background. Something you'd use for wallpaper on your PC.

File pic prevention device: date stamp or one of your gloves covering one of your mirrors.

If I knew that you needed a donkey.,. There are 5 within a mile of my house.. I could not find a hand dry car wash.

I like your idea of a new music game and this is a good list

I passed a donkey place recently, but can't remember where. I wasn't on the bike. I found a farm in Roxboro that had them, but it's going to be hard for me to get more than a dozen miles or so from home until the middle of the month or so.

Found several hand dry car washes today, just by accident...

I'm not sure the musical thing wouldn't work better as a sub-group on the pictures forum, but I'm playing with a couple different things. I mean, folks would probably not be all that interested in finding pics relating to something they weren't really into as far as something like that goes. Maybe. It's probably going to be best just to do a list like this occasionally here and leave getting inspired to do one's own photo "album" to whatever interests each person.

Yeah, I know. None of the dog rescue societies publish their addresses around here though. Except for the SPCA and like that. That was as close a place as I could find that kinda sorta, well, you know.
