    Clearly silver is the faster BMW model color. Here I thought yellow was the fastest color for so long. Now I'm certain it's black:D

    Yes, we saw each other, but passing going in opposite directions. We would have been there at the same time had it not been for me getting pulled over. The nice policeman let me go with a warning.

    Rice Paddy, if you want to post the next tag, go for it. I was going to use a file photo. Technically, you got there first :lol3

    :eek1 :eek1 :eek1 WOW ! We posted three minutes apart. I'm a little slow on the computer stuff and just got home and saw your P.M. I had not looked at the forum since positng the grab at the McDonalds on 378 at Old Chapin Rd.
    That was you I saw and now I know why you were giving me the slow down hand signal. I saw the cop sitting in front of the church about a quarter mile down the road. Anyhoo, it might be a little late for you, but here is the new tag:

    This is the Carpenter House, built around 1900. You will find it on a side street in a town noted for its fine old homes and qaint Main Street. Its just about in the middle of the state, so it should be fair for everyone. Good luck

    Thanks for being a good sport. Now that I have digested all of this, I realize we should have called it a tie.
    I owe you one.

    I once tried to grab a tag and there were two other inmates there at the same time. I did not have the fastest service/post. We remain friends to this day :D

    When I first started tagging, I got a triple Bruce. I thought that was pretty cool until I started getting a shower of noob harassment. LOL

    :confused As requested, here is another clue that should lead you right to the town. Once there, finding the
    Carpenter House will be easy.

    A lawyer from this town, John Fletcher Hobbs, left for Australia in 1882 and by 1893 had become the chief of two tribes of cannibals. :eek1 I didn't know Australia had cannibals, but that's the way the story goes.

    Hope this helps make the game more fun and interesting. Good luck

    :evil

    Turned out to be a legit "personal day" from the office. :deal My 90year old grandmother took a fall on Monday and broke her femur in 3 places and my cousin (who is an orthopedic Dr.) operated on her at Newberry Hospital yesterday.

    I knew the tag right off since my mom is from Newberry and my dad went to undergrad there and I spend a good bit of time down there and specifically around the downtown area. (My Great grandfather and grandfather published the Newberry Sun)... Anywho... It worked out :clap

    Although I will say that McDonalds coffee sucks even when I was pretty chilled from the morning ride down. :lol3

    Tag coming up shortly....:wink:
