I suspect the duck is across the street, looked like there must be about 30 people living in the house turned apartment directly opposite the tag site. There's probably a child chewing on him as we speak (if only they knew where that duck has been).
Of course, maybe H14 really DID take him camping last week...

I doubt it. He'd have said something by now.

Well Amigo, I think the tradition is you have the tag now, and you get to place it with a new mascot of your choosing.

I do feel guilty though and you're right, that place across the street is full of urchins that might have absconded with the duck.

So, your call. Game on and you replace the duck or let me know and I will.

Fair enough, since nobody has posted the grab/tag we'll assume it's MIA.
I'll find a mascot and place a new tag. Probably won't be until tomorrow (Tues) though.

I didn't take him, he was still above the window the last time I saw him.

I was just yanking your chain, figured you were an upright citizen
Damn, my young-un turns 32 this week so there aren't many mascot/toys lying around. I'll find something.

I figured, just wanted to let you all know for sure.

Same deal here no little kids toys around here, except mine.

New tag: I figured since it's a holiday and not presently raining, I'd try to get it back out.

Here's the new mascot, sort of a mouse toy that wasn't one of my cat's favorites (just so you don't feel bad - my wife gave the cat a new toy to replace it).



And the tag shot:



Mouse is at the base of this sign, front side, under the leaves. Reas Ford Rd. runs south of Earlysville, this road is a dead end that intersects Reas Ford Rd. from the east and has a VERY similar name.

It's not currently raining in E'ville
Good karma - got a call this am from a fellow who lives on the tag road, he's been out of riding for a while and is thinking of buying another bike.
Somebody needs to zip out to the tag road and collect some of those good vibes.

Hmmm... Maybe if I go on the DRZ he will psychically feel the bike in the area and then want to buy it! Brilliant!

Grab. Reas Ford Lane



Southern Albemarle Co to a road named after an axe that might have been used to lop off someone's head, or "a tool that was commonly used in the manufacture of square timbers. "

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ Road, near the south end is a cluster of boulders along a small creek.





Under a rock on top of the rock nearest to the road.





Nice afternoon for it!
