I knew I'd seen a tank around here somewhere.  Finally remembered about a week ago, but since then I've either been working or its been pouring down with rain.  This is outside of the VFW in Toccoa, GA.

For those of you who have been feverishly working on it I'll keep the next tag as a rotary dial phone or a hand pump.

Well, I wish the Blackhawk was in this pic but I don't think they would've appreciated me driving my Indian inside the Visitor Center.    ;D   My kid's and parents are out visiting from Wisconsin for our annual 2 week summer vacation, and today we took the kids to the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge.  If you're not familiar (which I'm sure most of you aren't) in the 40's the Army opened an arsenal just outside of Denver where they manufactured massive amounts of mustard and sarin nerve gas.  They were about to declare the place a waste land but before they did they realized there was a lot of natural wildlife living through out the 30 square mile environment.  All through the 80's and 90's they safely destroyed all the chemicals and tore down all the structures and turned it into a National Wildlife Refuge where you can see eagles, hawks, pelicans, elk, buffalo, prairie dogs, coyotes and everything else.  There's even a few small lakes you can fish in.

While inside the Visitor Center they had some of the old signs and different items from the arsenal.  Just a bunch of cool WWII stuff, and also taxidermy animals.  I got some pretty cool pics, but this pic is prime.

BEHOLD!  AN EXPLOSION PROOF ROTARY PHONE!!!

New tag? Does Scotties phone grab count? I say... yes, but this is a democrazy.  <-- That was a typo but I'm leaving it be.

OK - I'm issuing executive order 500 and picking a new tag. It's summer and the clock is ticking.

NEXT TAG: Your Royal Enfield (or your non-Royal Enfield if you DO NOT have a Royal Enfield) and a statue of a National hero.  Possibly vague, a little open to interpretation, but broad enough to hopefully include everyone.

Aw, man, that's always the way it happens!  Nothing for weeks, and then the tag changes a few hours before I get to post my photo!  :(

Doesn't Singhg5 pick the new tag?

Here's mine anyway.  I was going to cheat and take a photo of my bike with my bicycle's hand-powered air pump, but I assumed that the tag was for a hand-powered water pump.  Found one this afternoon:

So who gets to pick?  I don't know the correct Parliamentary procedure here. Is it Boggy's statue or something weird Scottie or Mattsz picks?
Isn't Executive Order 500 when Scottie targets and destroys every thing on the surface of the planet below?

LMAO!!!    ;D

You have to admit, even tho I couldn't get the bike in the pic, the explosion proof rotary phone was pretty sweet.  I never choose the next tag because no one gave a definitive answer.  Well, boggy kind of did.  LOL

I enjoy this game tho, so maybe I'll beat you guys to the next one.    ;)
