Launched grab Monday, but aborted. Got late start; got discombobulated somewhat on newer traffic patterns on newer restricted roadways; darkness began to fall; rush-hour traffic intensified; so did wind gusts.

"Coulda been a contender," but . . . exercised discretion, said by some to be the better part of valor.

NOTICE: Did not claim COLD WEATHER as an excuse; with Gerbing's gear and Hippo Hands, what? ME worry?

Grab; Sharp Park, Arlington:





TAG: Recently, the Academy Awards, the "Oscars," were much in the news.

Taking the Wayback Machine to the year, 1943 [16th Academy Awards, the 1944 ceremony honoring the best in film for 1943], Jennifer Jones won the Best Actress award for the title role in a movie portraying the life of the saint for whom this church is named. Flick won three more Oscars; also, 1943 was the first year of Golden Globe awards [The 1st Golden Globe Awards, honoring the best achievements in 1943 filmmaking, were held late in January 1944 at the 20th Century Fox studios in Los Angeles, California.]; the movie won three, including Best Actress for Jennifer Jones.

Ironically, Linda Darnell was cast in this movie; an uncredited appearance with this actress in a most unlikely role, given her . . . "lifestyle."

Ali reposes at the base of the bench shown here:







Before settling into the cold, cold ground, Ali stopped to read this homily in a paving stone; not a bad sentiment:

+ 1!

Resolving clues, that's St. Bernadette's church; the movie alluded to was, "Song of Bernadette," and . . . Linda Darnell played The Virgin Mary. Some casting director!

So I decided to get away from that crappy RLD since it was such a nice day. I went tooling around and saw a rd sign which led me to believe that I would find an Orchard in Loudoun county. Well, its false advertising, because all I found was a winery.



Ali is next to the right hand leg of the winery sign, under a fancy looking rock

Look for Ali behind these two rocks, which are behind the left pillar you approach from the road:



The clue:

While already guessed by an inmate, Ali decided to visit his friend, Mr. Katebini. . ..

Find the lane where Ali decided to rest. . ..

Happy tagging!
