Yesterday I took the cage because I had some things I needed to carry to work. On the way home just after dark I hit a deer on Hwy 620. Killed the poor thing and tore up the front end of my car. I've never seen anything like it because there was traffic everywhere. I was in the center lane and the car to my right didn't hit it and suddenly it appeared right in front of my car. It was though it just materialized instantly, absolutely nothing I could do. As horrible as that was, it really scared me to think about what would have happened if I'd have been on my scooter instead of in my car. I'd have been creamed and then run over by tons and tons of cars. Yikes!!!


BE CAREFUL!
Glad you are ok!

I'll need to get the next tag tomorrow morning as it will be too dark on my way home.

I need to start taking pictures in advance.
Great job! They have THE BEST tortilla chips (also available at Central Market, etc...)!!!

Your translation hint gave it away since you figured out my Bus hint with the same type of hint.

My wife had a good thing for a tag so I am going to go take a picture of that and post it but I right now won't be able to get it until the morning due to the time change.

Maribell, I work just off Burnet at 49th and I've see you on your pink buddy. Welcome to the group. Are you buying the red GTS on Craigslist?

Are you going to sell the pink Buddy? Might (might not) know a potential buyer...

Tag your it!

This is a hard one I'll probably have to give hints. No it's not on Google's street view.

I will say that there is lots of sculptures here and it would be cool if whoever tags it gets another one just for some variety. I picked the one that best matched my scoot.

I know where this is too, but can't get to it today. Saw it on my way to/from another previous tag location, and actually thought about taking a picture of it back then but didn't. Too bad I didn't . . . I could've just posted the picture now and officially tagged it. Or does that not count, if I took a picture of it before it actually became a tag location by someone else???

Fun at lunch today
When I was walking up to the Omletry for lunch today a young guy on a Daring plum Vespa took off out of the driveway right past me. As I was leaving, I saw a white super GTS and a white vino parked near the front door. I wandered around to the back dining room and had no problem picking davidstence and jaxson out of the crowd. Nice folks, both of them!

I don't have a problem with that. I guess if it was the wrong time of year it could be obvious.

Hey how did you tag that in 33 seconds? I don't have any idea. Shhh emoticon

You collect scooter tag photos. I collect beer steins and Hard Rock hurricane glasses. Funny because I don't drink.

Now now I drink root beer and creme soda there they brew themselves. Not everything at the micro-breweries has to be alcoholic.

I knew that. Two of my favorite restaurants in SD were microbreweries though. But when I lived there I used to drink. Maybe that is why they were my favorite? Wait make that three.

Okay so since we have no activity on the current tag I think I'll give a hint.

Do Testudines live here?

haha I know what you are talking about! I have all my gear now except a full face helmet and it is more comfortable. I think I still need something to keep my legs warm because jeans are not cutting it.

My new tourmaster jacket is awesome and my gloves I got cheap are doing the trick for a 30 minute ride to work. I also got a neck gaiter from REI and it is keeping my lips and nose warm until I get the full face helmet.

It definitely was cold this morning at 6:45 though.

The funny thing is I got the gloves because my hands felt like they were the part that were freezing. Once they were warm then it felt like my lips were freezing so I got the gaiter. Then my chest felt cold. So basically the coldest got the attention first and then I realized something else was cold.

Yeah, the real place is the one I originally saw. I was wondering why I was driving around on St. Elmo. Well, poop! Definitely can't get back over there for a few days.

I don't think it's really art if all the places have the same exact sculptures! Sheesh! Razz emoticon

This was funny because I didn't even know there were more than one of this place in Austin and at that point I assumed they wouldn't have the same sculpture but boy was I wrong!

Plus I doubt any apartment chain can really claim 'Art'.
