Well, it took a while, but here's the tag. This house is located in the fantastic Rush Creek Village in Worthington. The village consists of beautiful Frank Lloyd Wright style homes that were built in the 50's. If you are into that kind of architecture, it's an awesome find in this area. Hats (and helmets) are off to Neela for this one, particularly since it took a while to locate the specific tag once I got there. I talked to the elderly woman who owns the house and she has lived there since 1963 (and paid me a nice compliment by saying that was before I was born..... ahem.)
Now, you may notice that there are in fact three scooters in the picture. As I was riding towards the destination, who to my wondering eyes should appear heading the opposite way on Wilson Bridge Rd. but Gary and Caitlin. We shouted to each other under the traffic light that we were all out looking for the tag, and they caught up with me farther down High St. It was great to see them and we all joined in on the hunt together.
Next tag is coming right up, happy hunting and happy holidays.

Well I see you guys hit the jackpot on that tag, how sweet that you ran into each other, how was it Cold?
Did the lady tell you about the house and how they were analyzed by a physiatrist to decide o the house plans they are also referred to as the personality homes for that reason.
We watch a special on them a few years ago.

MERRY CHRISTMAS !

It wasn't too cold, 50 degrees is my limit and I think it was over that. The sun was going down when I got home so by then it was a bit chilly, but some hot chocolate did the trick when I got inside.
And, yes, what an outrageous twist of fate that we would meet up under a traffic light in Worthington. I laugh each time I think about it. What are the odds?
The lady at the house didn't give us any history but I would sure like to spend more time talking with her.

great picture! This one won't last long. I know where it is. If only we can get there before smets and dmets mount up before we do.

BTW, I have been to the Grandview library several times, and I think the ET4's are wrapped up for the winter.

Good ones! I figured that Whole Foods might be a "gimmee" but after the tough one in Rush Creek I thought an easy one might be in order.
I'm pretty sure that I know where the latest one is but am in the house with a bad cold so am not going to venture out.
I hope you all had a good Christmas.

Obviously no worries on us getting there, or to any of them at this point lol...we both have the plague. Even though D went out riding to work yesterday, I can't see through my puffy eyes to get up the steps much less pilot a vehicle.

The ETs have been covered but not put up for the winter. The batteries have been on the tender, but D put his back in to get out in the milder weather. I'm hoping I can do the same soon...those are some good tags. That's so cool that you all ran into each other. I'm hoping to jump back in as soon as I am healthy again and get back my "alone" time when O goes back to school next week.

Did everyone have a good holiday? Ours was fine, except for the rampant illness.

Sounds like we are suffering with the same crud. I have had this darn cold since Christmas Eve but managed to get out last night to the hockey game. We are heading to Cleveland to see relatives tomorrow, hopefully it will be a better day. Have to feel better- scooter tag waits for no one.

We haven't been blessed with the crud, yet. EPSP members, as much as you might want to, no kissing for awhile.

Whole Foods wasn't a gimme as much as you think, Mark. I went out searching for it, but no luck.

Tom, Kathy, Caitlin, and I are meeting at the Thirsty Ear this Saturday, anyone feels up to coming is welcome. Willie Phoenix is on stage! Band starts at 9:00.

Ciao, Gary

Thirsty Ear on Saturday may be a possibility. My wife is heading to a concert in the Arena District so I was actually thinking of getting out to hear some local music. What time do you plan to be there?

A clue may be in order. I'm pretty sure I know where it is but won't be getting there any time soon. If it's what I think it is, I have a great story that I will share.

It's within a stones throw of an eagle and if you got high it would help your cause.

Toms turn
We headed east to collect our tag this morning freaking cold is a understatement when Tom told me to steer clear of wet spots in the road because it might be ice I said see ya
So off he went to High street to stop in at the John Eagle candy store to get a fix for his sweet tooth and low and behold what did he find?

Ha, it took me 45 minutes to get ready for a two minute trip. You know where I live, right? Go down the hill, turn left...hello, deer! We pass him every time we go downtown or to the post office. Kind of like that darn iron pony thing of mine that you got. ROFL emoticon

Thanks, I am feeling better today. It's been a long week.

Here I was keeping it simple for the cold weather. Never again! Glad everyone is out and about. Mets Jr and I are at home this morning.

What kind of cold weather gear do you all have? We have one pair of Hippo Hands which helps with my not-for-cold-weather gloves. Otherwise, I just layer up and pack the coffee.

Haaaaa! I got lucky, both cars are in both of our pictures! I showed the new one to Caitlin and she got it right away. I'll give you a clue. It would only be appropriate that the first tag in 2007 came from Ms. Twojacks and the last one was tagged by Mr. Twojacks.

The arrows point to a church and, once again, it's good to be high.

Oh, I fully expected Smets to grab this one. Well, I thought I knew all the murals around town but I don't know this one. It's probably safe to say you got the last 2007 tag. Unless Suzanne grabs another before nightfall.

I'LL TELL YOU ONE THING, I WAS BUMMED AFTER I FROZE MY ASS OFF TRYING TO GET THE ONE THIS MORNING. WHAT TIME DID YOU GO THERE? I WAS THERE ABOUT 9:15.
