Spoiler alert -- the search was a success! Eventually (I'll skip the fruitless Bob-the-clown and graveyard speculations) we came across this glade at the intersection of 7th Street and Penn Ave.
|Magnolias blooming in August? But that's unpossible!|
|Can you spot all the differences between these two pictures? |
Trick question; there aren't any.
With the starting location for Clue #1 established, it was time to take another look at the poem:
|Wordsworth spins 210 degrees in his grave |
each time you rhyme "steel" with "concealed".
|Oh, we're in a PARK and we need to PARK! That's very clever.|
|They demolished a bookstore in the name of civic improvement. |
Have we learned nothing from "Fahrenheit 451"?
|Ze eyes, zey do not blink! Aaaaah!|
We pass near NOLA on the route, and since I have vague memories of seeing Bobo the Clown in a dingy alley (and am somewhat sure it was from yesterday and not from a repressed childhood) we take a quick detour...
|The 3 Guys eventually decided to find 2 more Guys and made a restaurant chain.|
|T is for Tavern, that's good enough for me.|
To be continued!
By the way... you now have the information to succeed where we have failed. Can you figure out the meaning of the riddle before I spoil it umpteen posts from now?
