GRAB! An enclosed pedestrian bridge at DFW airport!


If you look closely, you'll see people walking directly above the bike..

And next.....

There (?were, are, is?) 5 Spice Girls. Go get a picture with one of their identifying nicknames, like Posh Spice...

I had to look this one up coz' I didn't know all their names:

Victoria Beckham is Posh Spice
Geri Halliwell is Ginger Spice
Emma is Baby Spice
Melani C is Sporty Spice
Melanie Brown is Scary Spice

So this should be fun and easy!

I would think, BABY would be the easiest, Ginger, I know of a Wild Ginger restaurant, but where would you find Scary or Sporty?

I've been out looking today but didn't find anything.... It seems easy but it's not THAT easy in a non-english-speaking country.
I'll find something tomorrow, if it's still up by then.

It's not all that easy in an English-speaking country either. Went to where searches led me to two "baby" retailers. Both long since closed. Sporty and Scary take me nowhere. There's a Ginger listed as a Thai restaurant about 30 miles out, but unless I can get someone to answer the phone, I'm not going to bother.

Funny. I was trying to find one that WASN'T posh. Didn't even look for that.

Think it's time to take a break from this...

Street view is outdated in some instances. Both the retailers I went looking for were in outdoor, suburban malls where street view doesn't go anyway.

spicy grab

Couple Spice Girl grabs. There were supposed to be two different one that I could have got without moving the bike at the first one, but one has closed down. The second pic here is the one RD pointed out.

Got an idea for a follow up to this. Give me about 20 minutes.

That didn't work out. One of my clients is a lawyer named George Lennon. Was going to go for variations on Beatles names. His name isn't on the building though. Staying somewhat in the same vein, get something with a record label's name on it. The Beatles were on Capitol in the US. Yes, I know my tag is CapitAl, but leeway is allowed. Get an RCA, Warner Bros, EMI, whatever.

I was thinking the same thing. Beatles own label.
