I don't know, Xwelder, but I thought that was a pretty cool use of some left over bearings and scrap metal. Sally is kinda picky. Hey, packet, queen and redbud...where did you think this was. Packet, your comment totally threw me off.. Just curious.

First thought I had was the Biltmore. The tower sign on top of the building made me think that.

I used to live a block from the Clermont Lounge. Corner of Bonaventure and North Ave in the mid 80's. The Mrs. and I lived in a big old house with two other married couples and one bath(tub). Every day/night was an adventure. Ru Paul lived down the street, the Now Explosion as well (old Atlanta). We'd wake up to find various passed-out visitors sleeping on the front porch at times. The Clermont holds a dear place in my heart. Nice placement Jenna!

I got a little tearful just thinking about it.

Man. I'm going to shoot a pic of her in that harness for my new avatar. It's funny/sad.

I looked for a long time on Streetview & still couldn't figure it out. From the perspective it looks like 17th street bridge but nothing looked right.

Because I'm an idiot, the BAY hint went completely over my head.

you're on the right track, especially if that track is heading north

I have a good idea where this is, but stopping there is another thing. Make appropriate chicken sound now.
