Speaking of singers and some dead end roads....

Others have sung about a Highway to this place, but this is only the Road to it. Razz emoticon

Do I need to add more hints? I thought this one would be easy and draw in some of our other players.

(Hello? Is this thing on?)

This ain't no technological breakdown...

So I'm a bit pressed for time, so this one will be easy. If you need an actor to work with a lot of prosthetic make-up, who you gonna call?
He may have looked "beastly" but underneath it all he was a real pussycat.

Well yesterday I did a PGR mission up in the Blue Ridge.

I passed thru this town that was named after a legendary figure who is considered one of the great cavalry commanders of American history.

The mission was in the town of his birth and I think he would have been as moved as I was at he sight of 35 "iron horses" riding single file with flags flying up the twisty mountain road up to the cemetery.

I'm betting I'm not the only person who could use a clue. I know I tend to overthink these things, but I'm stuck.

J.E.B. (Jeb) Stuart was born at Laurel Hill Farm located in Ararat. So the PGR Mission was probably there. On your way, you would have passed through Stuart, VA. So far so good.

Nice drug store. Seems not to help. May be located on Main Street. No dice. Search on just the town name? No. Route 58. No.

So...where did I make a wrong turn?

I really do give up.

I've checked "Stuart Virginia", "Stuart, Virginia" and "Stuart V I R G I N I A" and have clicked through 20 pages of GIS for each one and I still don't find this image. I don't believe I've been struck blind.

Please sir, can we have another?

Word Bookstore in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.

And thanks for pointing out Rex's game. I've been so busy, I hadn't noticed.

Now that I'm catching up with it, kudos for the Commander Cody association for "Lost"!

That's odd, last night I could see both images which I posted; this morning I could only see one; and now no images are showing. Code seems to be fine (I used my Photobucket acct for these). Will check back in later--maybe it's just a server fluke.

Our office has everything fun on the internet blocked. It was fine when I got home to my own network.

I knew it would be an easy guess for the old farts like me! Actually, I think I was six or seven when this album came out. Even at that age I knew there was just something about whip cream that was so darn sexy.

Yeah, I was messing with you. Sorry for any confusion.

I took the Moody Blues and moved them two years forward from "Go Now" to "Days of Future Passed" and the final cut "Nights in White Satin." Then I threw the next record on the turntable and started with the first cut from Procol Harum's first U.S. release to bring on "Whiter Shade of Pale." Both were from 1967 and listening to FM "underground" radio in those days it would not have been unusual to hear those two played back to back, particularly late at night. 8)

It is a beautiful Photoshop creation, but I agree with messy on needing hints. I think perhaps too many elements were altered that might have provided clues.

Not really. Take out the "top" which was obviously added. It IS a case of wine in the picture.
