    Hopefully it wasn't the ribs.

    No, it wasn't. The ribs were excellent!
    In fact, I was thinking of them when I fell asleep, and I woke up a 4am drooling.
    (Seriously....drooling. Like, bucketfulls of spit in my mouth, with more and more coming, filling up my mouth as soon as I could spit it out, accompanied by horrible heartburn.
    Um....any doctors have an idea? It happens often enough for me to start getting concerned.)

    Anyway, nice tag.
    I thought it would be super easy because of the address, but it turns out you actually have to ride around a bit to find that sign.

    And riding around that area was awesome. So much so, in fact, that I decided to also place this tag in the Mennonite Farms of Dayton.

    Okay, an interesting story behind this one. As I go past this picnic area, I realize what a great tag it would be. So, I turn around, and come to a stop.
    I am greated by this large dog barking, and then proceeding to try to jump up onto my bike.
    [​IMG]

    Okay....interesting. He's not attacking me, but I'm not sure he wants me to get off my bike. I think he wants me to leave.
    But I really want to place the tag there.

    How can I calm the dog and let me place the tag? What might I have in my possesion that would help?

    Oh, right. I just happen to have a squeeky dog toy in my tankbag.

    [​IMG]


    Oh...he likes that! Yes he does! Now he wants to play!

    Unfortunately, so do about 2 dozen cows, who all start mooing as I bring out the Dirt Chopper.

    [​IMG]

    Well, as they start mooing, the dog immediates leaps towards them, barking his head off, as if to say, "THAT'S MY TOY, BITCHES!"

    While the dog is distracted, I contemplate how to leave a dog toy with a toy and expect him not to move it. I decided that haivng a short snout, he'd probably not be able to get it out from inside this cinderblocks. Let's hope so.

    [​IMG]

    I could tell the dog, returning from his discussion with the bovines, was now quite dissapointed to see me get back on my bike and not play with him. Oh well. Maybe next time.
    Here's the tag shot.

    CLUES: This road is a hill road name that could be for a type of rock used to make curses. (According to one questionable source)
    The rock means nail of a finger or claw in greek. Legend says that one day while Venus was sleeping, Eros/Cupid cut her fingernails and left the clippings scattered on the ground. Because no part of a heavenly body can die, the gods turned them into stone.
    In Christianity, take two of these stones and write the names of all the children of Israel on them.

    I can diagnose you and write prescriptions, I stayed at a Holiday Inn Express last night.

    Seriously though, Mikeinrichmond is the only medically related individual on the boards I know of but his is not a related field.

    That actually had me laughing!!!:rofl:rofl:rofl

    I will make sure to buy Mace for this tag...or a raw steak.

    Your new clue made this one pretty easy. Not as easy as actually giving it away like me though.

    Beautiful morning for a ride. The clouds were serene. The dog seemed very friendly but you never know these days... the mennonites could be training him to fight:lol3
