My brother-in-law and sister-in-law live in the Olentangy Village complex and had their rehearsal dinner out on a patio where the amusement park arches stood. He has quite a bit of memorabilia about the park and is really into the history. Great spot and excellent tag.
Not sure about everyone else but I hope this is the last blast of winter.

On the way home from work today, I saw a guy - looked like he was in his 50's riding what appeared to be a Puch. Yep - this was probably 4pm in the middle of the first part of the snow storm. He was ridding outrigger style and keeping up with traffic. I am not even that brave/stupid. While inclement weather wont stop me from ridding - today was pretty ridiculous. I wasn't excited to be driving in it with four wheels.

I've been scooping snow for the last hour, even though it's still snowing like crazy. I measured the flattest part of my backyard, 16 inches and growing.

I haven't tried to shovel this morning, but when I opened the back door to let Kelev out, there was about a foot of snow up against the door. The pooch was up to his shoulders.

I leave the snow, the leaves, watering the lawn, mowing the grass, doing the dishes, and dusting to God, who's pretty good half the time.

My goldens are lovin the snow.

Same problem here, we have had our Lab out several times but the snow is so deep she can't squat to do her business. I wonder if the Wisconsin and Minnesota dogs have to just hold it in until Spring?

I think Kelev likes the snow well enough, but he had trouble finding a place to do his thing too. He finally went in the little trench he made running back and forth looking for a place. He probably could hold it til spring...he's kind of amazing like that. He looked like he was considering it.

Mostly we shovel because Owen likes to (not that I mind doing it) and because we live on a corner where there's lots of foot traffic normally. Not today, of course.

As soon as it stops blowing, we're going sledding!

Earth Day event?
Hey All - sorry to post this here but I figure this thread is getting the most looksee's these days...

I am helping put together Earth Day in Columbus and wanted to offer Modern Vespa/ Easy Peasy Scooter Club / individuals the chance to have a booth. Booths are available for the not-so-low price of $50 each. This is the non-company price, which means it's OK to show off your scooter and sell T-shirts and buttons and things like that. But it's not OK to show up and be selling scooters. (Then you need to pay more for the "corporate" booth, I think it's $100. The scooter shops around town have already been contacted about getting a booth.)

The event is Saturday April 26th, from noon to 7 PM at Goodale Park. While many people think scooters are automatically terrible for the environment, newer ones (especially 4 strokes) are not as bad as older models. There is also the decreased need for parking space and gas consumption with scooters, when compared to cars.

I am also going to be posting this today on the Cutter board, there is no issue if Cutters and non-Cutters agree to share a booth, as long as someone registers. (In other words, any splits on the booth fee are amongst yourselves.)

These prices are only good until this Saturday, when the early booth registration deadline ends. Please contact Chrissy Cooley - earthycooley@gmail.com to register. Also see the Earth Day website here: http://nowgetbusy.org/volunteer/

Sorry again for the late notice. Please PM me if you have any questions, or just contact Chrissy directly.

Yes please. I checked everywhere I thought it was. The kicker is that I know I have seen this before. And I think it isn't where you think it should be... So yea I'd love a hint.

It was a great day for a ride btw...

Regarding the Earth Day event; I think it's a worthwhile event. I don't think I'll be taught anything I don't already know. I'll attend and support the vendors that represent.

As for a clue? I'm impressed that my tag wasn't discovered in the first 24 hours of posting.

Here you go.

You might say you were at the pinnacle of success if you found this street and there's only one way to get there. If you find this tag, you should come over for a high ball, you're only a couple blocks away.

That was a good follow-up on the Blue Dube theme. On a Sunday, it's the best place to get a Bloody Mary in town. (not one minute before noon, though)




Probably an easy one, a continuation on the baby blue theme.

It was way to cold to do any background research on the mural. It was located at the start of Summit St. (a.k.a. 3rd. St.). To get there take hudson and turn south on third and look immediately to your left. Its right there. Good to hear from you TwoJacks.

If you look across the street from the Rumba Cafe you can see it. I don't know how it got there but it's nice example of folk art.

Okay, you may have guessed that it's a service station. I drove Caitlin to jury duty every day for the last two weeks and I drove by it every day. For those of you getting out your map and a piece of string, we live on Arcadia and Summit, 43202.

Did I mention I was driving to the courthouse in Delaware? Just kidding.

I don't drive a straight line to the Franklin County courthouse, but fairly close. You guys are going to be so embarrassed when you find it.

Twojacks, I'd love to see your new seat. Do you still have your hibiscus cover? I'll definitely give you a buzz for a weekend ride.

In the meantime, I went out for some TAG. I'm not as embarrassed as I thought I'd be...the Fawcett center takes that one for me. This former service station is on High Street between 5th and King, mere yards from where I was last night.



Here's the new one...



...have fun!
