Here's an easy one but well worth the trip. Should be a race to see who can get there first.

When I went there yesterday morning, I talked to an employee on her way in. She told me that one of the Weisheimers still live in the brown house -- that must be who you talked to! I hope they were understanding. It looks like that drive/alley connects to the parking lots so it seemed reasonably public.

Oldhighway and Twojacks, it's an old flour mill. They used to play a significant roll in housing the circus as well. Now it's just used for offices for different businesses. Weisheimer Rd in Clintonville is named for this family.

Yes by all means come out to The Thirsty Ear on Saturday. The Bowlers will be rocking. By the way, I just had to thake the opportunity to show my new stripes by Coop.

I saw your other post too.

Love the pinstripes. I have a plum GT also.

Who's Coop?

Google Coopstripes to see his portfolio. He works around Columbus, and he'll come to your house to do it.

Nice, you will have to come out and ride with us, I would like to see more of it.
I do like that Plum color.

We are going to ride on Sunday leaving the N. Market at noon, sounds like quite a few are coming out.

Hey, which one of us are you talking to??? Haha, we'll see who gets out tonight. Or tomorrow morning.

Twojacks, did you get my PM about Thirsty Ear? We ended up having to go pick up O around 8:30 or 9 or whatever, and we didn't even get out to dinner.

Where is Oldhighway?

I got the tag but I used a new four gig card in my camera and can't download it with my old reader.

I was starting to worry that the tag was too easy . . .

BTW: Congratulate Belle next time you see her. She took her motorcycle test today and she is now entirely street legal

All right, Belle! There's nothing like being totally legal.

Sorry to hear you've been thwarted by technology, Oldhighway. Didja get a new reader yet?

Thanks for the congrats! It feels good to have that done. Did you see the scooter picture on the front page of the Dispatch today? It might be because I have a scoot now or maybe it's true that they are becoming more popular but I see riders everywhere.

Congrats, Belle!

I haven't purchased a new reader, yet. Honestly, I thought this tag was going to be snagged up before I could post it. Don't make me go out and take this picture again!!!

Okay, I bow to peer pressure. Trust me, this is it. Mirror Lake on the OSU campus. I endured tons of 'moped' remarks to get this. Lots of drunk students and snide remarks. Here it is. TAG.

What kind of peer pressure were you getting over that 40 minutes in the middle of the night?

(Don't tell me. I don't actually want to know.)


Looking forward to your next tag on this rainy morning, you diehard tag player you.

Here's another clue;

The name of the church does not reflect the graphics displayed on the front of the building. However, the name of the street does. Okay, it's ambiguous but you don't want me to just hand it over!

I know it isn't what you actually said in your clue, but I kept thinking that the name of the road was church-related, and not that it just happened to be the name of the church. I did find the Parsons Baptist Church at the intersection of Parsons Ave and Obetz Rd so it all worked out according to your clue and my convoluted interpretation of it.

Congrats! I thought scooter tag was forgotten. Good catch, it was pretty far out of the way. I saw it on the way to Fishers Nursery, just a bit farther south on Parsons.

The new tag is great, who knew there were so many murals in this town?

I've never been to Fisher's Nursery...I should have kept going. Is it a nice place to shop? That was a good tag. It was nice to get "out of the way" a bit.

This game has given me a fresh perspective on Columbus. It's fun to seek out the bits of public art work here and there. I definitely did not forget about tag...I've been sick the last couple weeks with a horrible cold and have been just doing the bare minimum of everything.

Is anyone going to Eurobike Night tomorrow? I made plans for omets, and dmets has a meeting of his own to go to but I was planning to go for a little bit.

Fisher's is a nice place. They are family friends. Nice people.

I'll be going to Euro! I forgot about it.

Bummer! It was a relaxing evening.

It's a gorgeous day, leading into a gorgeous holiday weekend! Someone needs to go play tag. It's west of High St but still centrally located.

By saying that it is centrally located... i would venture to say that you use the term central very broadly.
