Grab; Fair City Mall; Main Street at Pickett, Fairfax, VA.



Ali said, "Looks like you need one M5 X 0.8 machine screw!"

"Right," I said, "Where could one be found, now that Fischer's Hardware is no more?"

"Just down the road a piece," said Ali, "See if you can tell which of the owners has the Toni!"





Ali rested on the wooden bench at the well-appointed bus stop:



Then settled for the night in the mulch at the nearest shrub:





"Where shall we tell the inmates you are located?", I asked.

"Tell 'em, near where this dialog once went on:

'Have you heard of Mosby?'

'Yes, have you got him?'

"No, he's got you!'"

Extra credit: Where, on a Generation 1 KLR650, is found an M5 X 0.8 machine screw (not listed separately in any known fiche or parts list)?

Trick question.

True, in general; however, this particular M5 X 0.8 machine screw had some extraction help from a four-legged forest friend!

You've a credible excuse for non-participation, SteelB12 (overseas); but . . . what about the local inmates? Need more clues? Let's get that gator moving!

--------------

O.K.; bonus clue!

Don't trump your partner when he plays this card.

May have to, if Ali's gonna move!

Shameless bump; the M5 X 0.8 machine screw is the "choke" lever pivot and fastener; a passing deer jerked mine out as he passed by the other day.

Now, all clues are in place: Owners (the Gemini connection), affiliation (the playing-card allusion), and the emporium type (big-as-life on the outside of the building). Googling these three elements gives the precise street address of the establishment within the Tag-o-rama boundaries; HBN-friendly location.

Hope someone grabs and tags within this three-day holiday weekend; weather looks good!

At the base of the flagpole, marked by an "A":


The "bike" shot:


The clue:
Ali wanted to go someplace that would honor those who've served. As we were on a bike, it had to be nearby. Sooo, I took Ali to an amphitheater that honors our veterans. The place is named for the city in which it sits. Also, using a bike made sense, because we might well have seen our now somewhat disgraced friend Lance.

Might be tough to get a motorcycle to the tag pics, so a picture here will work just fine:


Happy Tagging!

I'm going to go with 16 speeds, maybe 18. Looks like older Dura Ace. That bike is quite a bit nicer than your old Varsity. Well, I'm assuming you have an old Schwinn Varsity . . . . since you ride a KLR
