So if I was an adviser to the president and China offered the sum total of all the earnings from all past and future pokemon cards plus a gizillion dollars and would forgive all our debt if we sold them one state, it's no secret that I would sell West Virginia without shedding a tear or a moment's hesitation. Let's just say living in a place where Walmart is the only social recreational activity has been slightly rough this year. However, that is not to say that John Denver didn't know what he was singing about when he composed "Country Roads". If you aren't familiar with it's one song of glory please take a moment out of respect for West Virginia and listen to our friend who should have never taken a plane posted above. Although I must admit that when I sing it, my lyrics are, "Take me home, country roads, out of this place, I don't belong, West Virginia..." Now, just because I am not a full blooded "mountain momma" does not mean I can not appreciate the fact that this state is ridiculously beautiful. Yesterday after dinner we decided to go to the West Virginia look out point. In case you haven't had the rare opportunity to come see our state for yourself, I will post a pic for you to see (which is a lot cheaper than you flying in here considering we are 3 hours away from the nearest airport):
We hit our best and then went to Dogget's for homeade brownies and ice cream. Following our gluttony we went home where I dominated G in 3 rounds of "Are you smarter than a 5th Grader" on the wii. G and I have ongoing competitions of several games including words with friends, tetris, and Racko and each win is always worth a 20 minute back rub which can make your fingers pretty sore if you lose too many games it a row. It adds up fast so the competition is fierce. Good thing I knew what a homonym is. If you want to come see the look out yourself, you better book your reservation now because we have exactly 42 days left here. I have concluded that look outs are boring but "look out and do somethings" are fun.
