Sep 25, 2012 - Football & commercials

Yes, we are still in West Virginia, and yes, we are at McDonald's. We ARE leaving tomorrow unless there is an earthquake or tornado. This has been quite an interesting visit, as my impression of West Virginia matched what I had envisioned. Nice people, but oh, my goodness, so many of these poor people have so much to learn about nutrition. It is a sad commentary when I feel skinny and I know I could lose a few pounds. Hmmm, maybe we should stay. No...just kidding. Last night we watched the pitiful Seahawks-Green Bay game. The refs were...

Sep 23, 2012 - Beckley, WV

I have used my limit on data usage for the computer, so I am trying to avoid the overage fees. I am amazed that we use so much data. I think we need to upgrade our limits so this doesn’t happen. Off to McDonald’s to catch up on e-mail, trip journal and finding a route to get to Nashville, our next stop. We had hoped to leave today, but I am fighting with Group Health to send a fax to Wal-Mart so I can refill 2 prescriptions. I’ve talked to 4 people since Thursday and you would think one of them would have done it, but now we have to wait...

Sep 21, 2012 - West Virginia Mine Tour

Yesterday I wasn’t feeling well, so we stayed home. I think I slept most of the day. Today, I am back to normal (debatable, I know) and decided to go to the Exhibition Mine Tour in Beckley, West Virginia. We arrived there early afternoon just in time for the 45 minute mine tour. The main building was called the Company Store, but was a mini-museum which we looked around for a few minutes before the tour started. There was a train we got on, like a train a child would ride with the conductor being a retired mine worker. We drove into the...

Sep 19, 2012 - Missed Anniversary

We are spending a few days here in West Virginia. Tomorrow we plan to visit a West Virginia mine. Today was a lazy day. We stayed around the house and about 2 pm we got a call from our friend in Seattle, Bob Holmgren. He called to wish us a Happy Anniversary….from yesterday. HOLY COW!!! We BOTH forgot about it! Can you believe that? I couldn’t mess with John about forgetting, cause I forgot too. We were laughing about that all day. Funny thing is all 5 of our sons forgot the day too! Don’t know if we should be upset or not, since we forgot...

Sep 18, 2012 - Family in West Virginia

Hi guys...We are in West Virginia, Daniels to be exact. Visiting John's cousin, Doris Ann and will be here one more day. I had never met her before but heard a lot about her from the family. She is a very, very sweet lady and had lots of family stories (the family came from Kentucky and West Virginia)...yep, poor folks with wild histories. It has been entertaining to hear about John's family. Some very sad stories, some amazing stories and some funny, as most families have. We had planned to leave tomorrow, but Doris Ann's husband of 50...
