concerning mixtes, dictionary.com (and i presume most other dictionaries) define one as having a pair of tubes that run from head tube to rear axle (split top).

Jonny it was Orleans Place, not street, I found it on google maps. Its between 6th and 7th immediately south of Florida Ave. put this address into google map "Orleans Pl Ne, Washington, DC 20002"" and you will see. Not suprising we didn't find it, it isn't marked on our map!

that l'enfant guy was gonzo...what's orleans place doing way down there, so far from, say, lawrence, monroe, and newton streets? whatever. crazy frenchman.

so i wanna find a copy of the manifest, and i also wanna figure out if i was somehow registered as "johnny" from nyc or "jenny," though neither makes much sense.

enjoy the snow tomorrow -

Yes, I believe this to be mainly true.
We pirates are just prone to hurting each other.
We might as well start bringing a first aid kit.

It would be interesting to see a modern frame maker, lug carver go for Tribal or Celtic knot or an art deco theme. Now, to find some lugs on Ebay, a few pop up every so often. Also which modern roto tools and EDM, there can be some very interesting possibilities.

It took 2 trips to get all the empties out to the recycle bind this morning.

I think we need to do some day rides for the sake of riding, my legs are toast from the alley cat

EDM would be a sweet way of doing it, though you'd optimally need a 3 axis machine and I've never seen one of those. I never seen it used on tubing but I can imagine you'd have to be very careful with the wall thickness.
