Happy Halloween

Once a year east gate gets invaded, invaded with hundreds of ghosts and goblins all seeking a sweet treat in exchange for leaving you alone and not tricking you later in the evening. Jean of course has managed to avoid being tricked throughout the years by providing such delicious candied treats.

It's time for Trick or Treating again, and once again we will be going to Jean's to be handing out candy to usually between 3-400 trick or treaters on an average year. I will once again be on hand and try to get as many photos as I can of the evening.

On a side note, Michelle is finally starting to feel better, I guess seeing the Steelers beat the heck out of New England yesterday was a good cure for the cold.

Sunday Morning Rumblings

I am sitting here in a quiet house once again, in the early AM and not a creature stirring in the house. Just watched Love and Other Drugs on HBO (Great Movie) and am now watching Jerry Maguire on Encore.

A special thank you to the my brother Gary, the best brother in the world for coming over yesterday and changing the rear brakes on the Taurus for me. I can do front brakes, but I have only watched the rear brakes get done once and that was the best brother in law in the World 20 years ago. There is always Youtube, but I would prefer to have someone who knows what they are doing rather than me guessing.

Michelle is starting to feel a little better, but broken foot and all she is still under the weather. She has been pounding the vitamin C over the weekend and getting plenty of rest.

Todays agenda is grocery shopping and watching the Pittsburgh Steelers play this afternoon.

Have I ever mentioned I hate snow?

Saturday Morning Tidbits

* I usually do this on Tuesday, but I have a few things that I wan to touch on this morning.

* First of congratulations to the Morgantown High Mohigans for winning the MoHawk Bowl yesterday evening 49-27. Way to go Mphigans.

* The Big news of yesterday however broke yesterday morning and was actually almost news earlier in the week.West Virginia University would be leaving the Big East and Officially joining the Big 12 on July 1, 2012. It ended a few months of speculation by the Mountaineer nation. After Pitt and Syracuse announced they would be leaving the Big East for the ACC, the Mountaineers flirted with the SEC initially and later with the Big 12 where we were finally given an official invitation yesterday.

* Speaking of the Mountaineers, who will be leaving for the Big 12 next season, we will be losing many of our traditional rivalries. Today at 3:30, may be the last game between WVU and Rutgers in a Nationally broadcast game at 3:30 on ABC.

* OK, I'm already tired of the cold weather, the snow and the shorter days. Cam we do a repeat starting at about Spring? Not a big fan of the snow.

* Have a Great day and Go Mountaineers.

Yes it is once again that time of the week that we all look foreword to, when we can take time to cease the labors for the week and take a little bit of needed time out to enjoy the fruits of those labors. It is once again the dawn of another weekend and a Big Ole Hairy Friday!!!!

Looking for a little bit of High School Football? Well tonight is the night, the night when the Morgantown High Mohigans travel across town to their rival University High Hawks to take part in the yearly MoHawk Bowl. I'm picking my alma mater to once again extend their series win streak in this rivalry, it should be a very good game. It was just a few short years ago this game was #1 vs #2 in at Mountaineer Field in front of 20,000 people. Those days however are long gone by, but it is still going to be a very good game tonight.

University High needs to win this one tonight to extend their season into the playoffs, a loss could mean the end of the season for UHS. Morgantown will be trying to gain and secure a first round playoff game at home.

Both teams will be playing for something tonight, should be an interesting game.

Photo Flashback Thursday

Once a week I like to take a little bit of time out to select one of my tens of thousands of digital photo's (not all porn believe it or not ...LOL) and select just one photo to just tell a little story about. It is one of my favorite BLOG's of the week.

This week, the honor goes to one of my oldest and dearest friends that goes all the way back to my High School days. It's on none other than Smitty "aka BIG DADDY (or silly daddy depending on how many beers he had has that night)).

This picture was taken five years ago, when John and his daughters Emily and Brittany (Not sure where Meg was that night) were attending a Morgantown High School Football game. Something John and I used to do together on a regular basis. This night was one however that we both showed up on the same night to watch the Mohigans, who by coincidence will be beating the University High Hawks tomorrow night in the MoHawk Bowl.

Like Sands in the Hourglass

As a die hard WVU fan, this season and our conference association has been nothing short of roller coaster ride. The season starts off with the Big East talking about adding Villanova and adding TCU. Pitt and Syracuse decide they have had enough and boot scoot to the ACC. TCU then spurns the Big East and accepts a Big 12 invite.

There were rumors a few weeks ago that West Virginia would be heading to the SEC, but that would all hinge on what Missouri was going to do. If they were going to stay in the Big 12, we were possibly the 14th team to go to the SEC. Missouri on the other hand is rumored to be first in line for the SEC over WVU, so things started to look bleak and that was before Syracuse schooled us last Friday Night.

Yesterday the rumors shifted to West Virginia going to the Big 12 to replace Missouri. Big East football as we have once known it, is quickly dying. If we leave, their BCS affiliation will be out the door. Stay tuned for any official announcements.

Tuesday's Tidbits

* Well Monday is once again in our rear view mirrors and we are looking down the barrel of a Tuesday, I can't think of a better reason than that to do a tidbits.

* It's been 1,320 days since mine and Michelle's first date.

* 543 days since I proposed.

* 80 days of marital bliss.

* 61 more shopping days until Christmas.

* Michelle is feeling under the weather once again, hopefully the 2000 MG of Vitamin C and the hot shower last night plus the electric blanket and hot tea will solve that problem today.

* A very Happy Birthday wish to Michelle's nephew Jon Paugh. He is 31 on this day.

* Hi ho hi ho

Back To Work

Weekend is over and it's time to put our noses back on the grindstone and get back to doing what we do so we can enjoy our weekends.

It was almost a good football weekend, only the Mountaineer game on Friday evening was the only blemish, the Pittsburgh Steelers kicked the Arizona cardinals butts yesterday afternoon. You have to love Mike Wallace's 95 yard Touchdown reception.

Now it's back to the office, and back to work.

Sunday Morning Rumblings

Here I sit, early in the AM on a Sunday morning in a quiet house that has every other living creature sleeping. It is only I that is awake at this early hour. Rightfully so, because I was dead tired yesterday and kind of called it a day while the sun was still up in the air and the days daylight had yet to expire.

Michelle and I feeling a little bit of cabin fever yesterday afternoon took a drive just to get out of the house. Nothing major, I took her to Bruceton and through Rowlesburg and to Kingwood and back, as she had never been in the area. We tied stopping at Coopers Rock to see the changing of the leaves, but I guess we were not the only ones who had that idea on a nice Saturday afternoon because they were parking clear back by the pond, all the parking lots were full.

Today is going back to being a normal day, shopping this morning followed by a Steelers game later this afternoon. The weather has been cooling and the crock pot has been crying for us to make a batch of Chilli, so I just may answer that call today.

Have a great day.

Saturday, October 22, 2011


Wow talk about getting schooled, last night was one of the worst game that I can remember in some time. Syracuse beat our asses in every aspect of the game while rolling up a hard to watch 49-23 victory against us. It was probably the worst game I have seen this team play in a few years. Syracuse controlled the game clock and prevented us from getting off the field on 3rd down, absolutely atrocious special teams play and an offense that even though Syracuse was doing the same thing they did last year defensively, really made no adjustments to the blitzes.

Dana Holgorsen, welcome to smash mouth football and showing me last night that you really didn't have much experience with this type of game. When a team is blitzing like they were last night, you want to hang your QB in the pocket and let him get hit time after time.

Hands down to Syracuse, they won every aspect of the game and won all 4 quarters last night.

Big Ole Hairy Beat Syracuse Friday

Yes it is once again that time of the week that we all look foreword to, when we can take time to cease the labors for the week and take a little bit of needed time out to enjoy the fruits of those labors. It is once again the dawn of another weekend and a Big Ole Hairy beat the hell out of Syracuse and get revenge for last year gameday Friday!!!!

Looking for some football? Mountaineers will put an ass whipping on the Syracuse Orangemen for revenge for our in last years game tonight at 8:00 on ESPN. This isn't last years teams and we are going to light it up tonight.

High school football on your mind? The Morgantown Mohigans are going to host John Marshall tonight at Pony Lewis, the Monarchs have not won yet this year and it's not going to happen tonight either. University High played at Preston last night and Clay Battelle travels to Tygarts Valley this evening.

I'll put a bold prediction and say by the time the clock strikes midnight tonight, the Hawks, Mohigans, Bee's and Mountaineers will all put one in the W column and none of them will be close. I am confident.

Hi ho hi ho....Orange Juice.

Photo Flashback Thursday

Once a week I take a little bit of time out and look through all of my tens of thousands digital images that I have stored and just select one image to write a blog about. This week is no different and I actually saw this picture earlier in the week and knew that this was the one I wanted to use.

This week's picture comes from the Spring of 2004. I was getting ready to graduate College and I was playing softball for Recourse. We had one heck of a team that year, but that is another story. I had a high school kid playing Right Field for me, he also played baseball locally at the High School level.

Today's picture is from a game he was pitching all those years ago. A high school kid pitching a High School game, ironically against my Alma Mater who I was actually cheering against that day. The pitcher was pretty good that day, I think he even managed to make a living playing the game and has been the subject of quite a few of my BLOGS.

Seven years from High School to the Major Leagues.

Hump Day

Hopefully this day is much better than what I experienced yesterday. Don't EVER use FedEx, the assholes claim no one was home and didn't leave my package at the door even thought Chad was home all day. I called FedEx and it has to be a live signature for them to leave my replacement iPhone, and the bitch on the phone was not helpful at all. SCREW FEDEX.

I called Apple to see if we can change the shipping plans. After being on hold for an hour and a half, they could not get through to who they needed to get through to to email me the form to sign and stick on the door so FedEx would leave the package and content that I have paid for, not only the product, but the shipping included. After 2 1/2 hours on the phone with Apple after being initially told that they could e-mail me a form and I could sign it and stick it on the door, I was then told that they don't.

I even went in early at work yesterday to get a good workout, long story short I was at the office for 12 hours yesterday, 4 hours of it taking care of personal business because Hayley's printer is out of ink.

This better be a better day.

Tuesday's Tidbits

* Once again Monday is in our rear view mirror and we are staring straight down the barrel of a Tuesday, I can't think of a better reason that that to do a tidbits.

* It's been 1,313 days since mine and Michelle's first date.

* 536 days since our engagement.

* 73 days since we entered into marital bliss this past August.

* ONLY 68 more shopping days left until Christmas.

* My new iPhone is scheduled to be delivered today, it was supposed to be over night shipped last Friday, but it hasn't made it here yet. I have everything backed up and am ready to install my new Otterbox once the new phone arrives.

* Erica Jean Nicholson has made student of the week this week at her school.

* I had a co-worker get interviewed about the cost of season tickets for WVU Football. We share the same opinion on the cost of Season tickets, they are starting to price themselves out to the local fans.

* Michelle and I gave our Dog Sadie a nice haircut and trim yesterday, she was starting to get uncomfortable and needed a trim real bad. We have our own equipment and do it a couple of times a year.

* Hi ho hi ho

Back To Work

All good things must come to an end, and unfortunately that includes weekends and it's time to return back to the grindstone. I have no idea what I'm going to run into today, as I had to leave to take care of my iPhone (Which still isn't here yet) and it's cracked screen.

The Steelers managed to be at the Jacksonville Jaguars yesterday, so that made it a nice and relaxing day. Michelle made spaghetti for dinner, and I was good as I'm really trying to get back in shape with a lifestyle change.

Not much to say this morning other than hi ho hi ho

Sunday Morning Rumblings

Here I sit, up in the early AM in a quiet house where everyone but me is in slumber land. Not even the dog is stirring around and the only thing on TV is the movie The Wild Life playing in the background. I'm just thinking it's been five years since Chris Penn, the start of the movie, had passed away. I'll always best remember him for his roles in Footloose which is now at the theaters in a remake and All the Right Moves.

Agenda for the day, I'm working on an old HP laptop that Michelle used to have when we first started dating. I'm going to try to get it up and running properly with the keyboard working, as it's been retired for a couple of years now. Chad may have a job for a month or so in Cleveland working, so we're going to try to get something mobile for him to take up. Like me, his computer is a PC that he built (I bought mine) and it would be a pain to take it up and set it up up there. So we're going to try to get him the old HP laptop up and running. The operating system is fine, it's just the peripherals (Keyboard ad Mouse) that are the problem. Shouldn't be a hard, or even a costly fix.

I think I spoke too soon, Hayley just walked out here. Speaking of Hayley, she has been working at Bed Bath and Beyond and really seems to enjoy working there. A big thank you to JD Lewis for giving her a chance, she wasn't happy at Target but she really seems to like working there. We used her Discount after she first started and bought a Smart Stick that we use every day and just love it.

Back to the agenda, grocery shopping and Pittsburgh Steelers football are also on today's agenda. It is Sunday you know.

Happy Birthday Brittany Dae Cummings

Wow could really have been 21 years ago today that I was sitting in the hospital waiting room watching a Who's the Boss rerun as Ed walked in and said it was a girl. I walked out in the hallway and saw them wheeling you around, and that was the first glimpse that I had had of Brittany 21 years ago today.

If you happen to see my beautiful niece today, make sure that you take a little bit of time out to wish her not only a Happy Birthday, but a very Happy 21st Birthday today.

Happy Birthday Brittany.

Terri to New York City

I have no idea why, but I just checked Facebook, but it appears that my sister Terri is on her way to New York City. She just posted a status of being in New Jersey. I guess she left late last night, I hope she has a lot of fun in the city that never sleeps.

Saturday Morning Ouch

Yesterday wasn't the best of days, and it wasn't the worse of days. It started out with me going to the gym and getting a great workout, followed by me having to go to the restroom and having my iPhone drop out of its holster and smashing the glass in the front.

I called Apple and was going to do whatever it took to have it repaired or replaced, however that is not covered under the warranty. They will give you what they call an "Out of Warranty Replacement" for $199.00 However when I tried to make an appointment yesterday, it was then that I realized the iPhone 4s was being released and I had no chance of getting into an Apple Store.

Long story short, they cut the price to $149.99 and $29.99 for overnight shipping and my new iPhone should be either here today, or I'll get it Monday. Being this is Saturday, my guess is I'll get it Monday.

I did buy an Otter Box Defender yesterday to protect the new Phone when it arrives. I bought one for Hayley and for Michelle previously, but it was me who did not buy one for himself that dropped his and smashed it.

A little over a week ago water got onto and into Michelle's old laptop. As a quick fix I bought her a new one and tried to fix the old one. Yesterday the new keyboard arrived and the old laptop, which we will now refer to my new laptop, so I changed it and problem was fixed. It's as good as new.

We did manage to attend Mountaineer Madness yesterday evening, and we had a great time. I went alone last year because Michelle was under the weather. This year with walking cast on, she managed to get around much better and is starting to adapt to that big cast. Gotta love her, and I do, she is a trooper.

Have a great day.

Big Ole Hairy Friday

Yes it is once again that time of the week that we all look foreword to, when we can take time to cease the labors for the week and take a little bit of needed time out to enjoy the fruits of those labors. It is once again the dawn of another weekend and a Big Ole Hairy Friday!!!!

Are you looking for a little bit of local football, well you better get it tonight because the Mountaineers are off tomorrow. The Morgantown Mohigans will play host to Westinghouse, PA, a team I know absolutely nothing about. This will be the first meeting between these two schools and it happens here in Morgantown this evening.University High plays host to John Marshall also tonight in Morgantown and Clay Battelle travels to Cameron this evening.

If you are looking for a little different kind of excitement tonight, the 2011-12 Mountaineer basketball season officially starts tonight with the first practice of the year during Mountaineer Madness. It will be introductions of both the Men's and Women's teams, a scrimmage by the men and the always fan favorite of a Slam Dunk competition followed by an autograph session to close out the evening's festivities.

I received my first ever Josh Judy "Major League" Baseball card in the mail yesterday. I had a few of his minor league cards, but this was the first Major League card and it was issued by Topps. It's going into the safe until Josh can get here and sign it for me.

Have a great day, hi ho hi ho

Photo Flashback Thursday

Once a week I like to look back at all my pictures that I have collected through the years and just select one photo, one moment in time and try to relive that one moment gone by on my blog.

This weeks image is a place some of you have seen, but many of you in Morgantown drive by ever day without a clue as to what is there.

In White park there exists a huge reservoir. I large body of water that is actually Morgantown's water supply. It sits back in the woods, out of the view of the casual observer. On the back end of this reservoir, the water takes a significant drop in elevation and actually goes to the level of the river. This happens right behind the Toyota Garage on University Avenue.

A few years ago when I got my first camera, I ventured out to where this beautiful piece of lost beauty in Morgantown was and took a few pictures. Today's picture is of one of those pictures I took of the cascading waterfall.

Hump Day

Two down, let's get today in and look over the horizon, I can see another weekend just off in the distance.

Well Michelle went to the Orthopedic Dr yesterday, her foot is definitely broken and she has a walking boot that they have given her that she's not liking too much. It's a different one than the one they originally gave her, this one is designed more to correct the problem. They told her no rails to trails for a couple of months, so maybe we;ll have to look for an alternative way for her to get a little bit of cardio exercise.

She can still drive, but since the Subaru is a five speed it makes it a little bit trickier. She'll be fine though, she hasn't had much trouble driving with the other boot on.

Speaking of the trails, hi ho hi ho

Tuesday's Tidbits

* Well so much for my three day weekend. It's Tuesday and back to work, so I guess I should do a tidbits.

* We received Michelle's new laptop a little early, it actually came yesterday. She came home sick from work yesterday, so maybe she'll get a chance to try it out today since she really couldn't yesterday.

* I've ordered a new keyboard off of Amazon for her old one and I'll switch it out once I get it to see if that makes any difference.

* I ordered a Josh Judy Rookie card last night from Ebay. Josh said that Topps now has them and they were available on EBay, so I bought one. Not sure when he'll get back to Morgantown so I'll probably give it to his dad and have him sign it for me. I

* I just texted him and told him to sign it and a few others when he gets to town.

* It's been 1,306 days since mine and Michelle's first date.

* 529 days since we became engaged.

* 66th day of matrimony for us.

* 75 shopping days left until Christmas.

* Hi ho hi ho

Columbus Day

I consider myself lucky today, for me it is Columbus Day which also means that it is a Federal Holiday and I am fortunate enough to have a paid holiday today. Michelle still has to work today, so my holiday may even contain a day when I actually go to the office to work out for a while. Go in, get my walking and lifting done and then I can just turn right around and come home.

I honestly don't have any plans other than that and running Hayley to work later this evening. If the post office was working I would get Michelle's new laptop, but they aren't so it won't be here until tomorrow. I think I'll try fixing her old one and use it myself, I have a PC and actually prefer a PC, however it would be nice just to be able to sit on the couch and surf the World Wide Web.

On a side note, I would like to wish a very happy First Anniversary to Moke and Ang, it was one year ago today that they were bound in matrimony.

Have a Good day, maybe I should say Hi ho hi ho it's off to the gym I go.

Sunday Morning Rumblings

Here I sit in a quiet house, everyone else is in a state of slumber and once again I am up early like I am every day.

This has been a strange weekend so far, AI think we have all been sick at one time or another, but the sickness has lasted a few hours and the recovery time has been rather quick. Michelle was feeling under the weather early yesterday afternoon and I got it in the early evening. Later that evening she went out and visited her Mom at the Auction and I feel good this morning.

Early this afternoon we are going to watch the Pittsburgh Steelers take on the Tennessee Titans, and this one will be in the friendly confines on Heinz Field. Three of the first four Steelers games have been on the road, now they get to return home for the second time this season.

The Mountaineers beat UCONN 43-16 yesterday here in Morgantown. Geno Smith passed for what would have been a school record 450 yards a few weeks ago, but it was short of his 466 yards he threw for against LSU.

Have a great day.

RIP Mike Puskar

I saw some very bad news over the night, Mike Puskar a man whose name is all over this town including the Football Stadium and the facilities building for the Football team, passed away last night.

If you know anything about Morgantown, West Virginia, or West Virginia University, you will know the name Milan "Mike" Puskar.He started a pharmaceutical company in 1961 that is now one of Morgantown's largest and best employers. His tailgates were the biggest at Mylan Puskar Stadium where the Mountaineers play this afternoon and I honestly have never heard anyone ever say a bad word about the man.

Thank you Mike for all you have done, you have changed this town, this community and this University for the better.

Big Ole Hairy Friday and three day Weekend

Yes it is once again that time of the week that we all look foreword to, when we can take time to cease the labors for the week and take a little bit of needed time out to enjoy the fruits of those labors. It is once again the dawn of another three day weekend for me and a Big Ole Hairy Friday!!!!

Looking for a little bit of Football Action? The Morgantown Mohigans host the always troublesome Wheeling Park at Pony Lewis Field. The University High Hawks play host to #2 ranked Bridgeport at their stadium. Out in Blacksville, Clay Battelle will host Van which may be the counties best High School Football game this weekend.

At home tomorrow also will be the Mountaineers hosting the Connecticut Huskies and we will out to seek revenge for last years debacle where they managed to beat us up in Storrs. We'll see if the Offense can let the rest of the Big east know who's going to represent the conference in a BCS game this season.

We'll probably not get into too much this weekend, Michelle has a stress fracture on her foot, I told her to quit kicking my butt so much, and we will probably take it easy this weekend.

Hi ho hi ho

Photo Flashback Thursday

Once a week I look to look back through all of my old pictures and select one to tell a little story about.

This weeks picture is one that I actually can't tell you much of a story about, other than who is in the picture.

To the left is Mick Toth Sr, my sister Pam and she is holding my nephew Moke, Jean and her Mother Helen.

It's amazing how quick time goes by some times, this was a summer of me still working at Sterling Faucet, both of the jean's parents were still alive and Moke was a youngun. This just seems like yesterday and makes me realize that time and life goes by us very fast. I would even believe the premise that the older that you get, the quicker the time goes to make up for how slow time went when you were waiting to turn 16 to get your drivers license.

Hump Day

two down so far, now it's up overt his hump and down hill to not only the weekend, but a three day weekend for me.

As a heads up, my brother in law Jim is going to have an auction this Saturday at the Cassville firehall starting at 6:00. He's going to be auctioning off some Halloween items if you are looking for those types of things.

The kids bought a bunch of pumpkins last night and have started to carve their pumpkins for this year. I have a couple books with a lot of designs and a pumpkin carving saw plus the dremmel tool. I'm sure we will see some very creative pumpkins.

Tuesday's Tidbits

* Well Monday is once again behind us and we are looking straight down the barrel of a Tuesday, if you know me that means that I am one person who can not think of a better reason that that to do a tidbits.

* It's been 1,299 days since mine and Michelle's first date, I must be one heck of a unique individual to even be still tracking this, and I am.

* 522 days ago I proposed marriage.

* 59 Days ago we all gathered at the Marilla Center for a party and to make it official.

* There are still only 82 more shopping days left until Christmas.

* We had a little accident here Sunday evening, water got into Michelle's laptop and pretty much ruined it. I've ordered her another one and am trying to make hers do until that one arrives.

* I had a nice little pleasant surprise today, I figured out that I am going to have a three day weekend coming up. Next Monday is Columbus Day, a Federal Holiday!!!!

* Hi ho hi ho

Here we go again, noses back on the grindstones ready to face yet another week of work ahead of making that stuff that allows us to enjoy our weekends. It's once again time to see those bright smiley faces at the office that we have come to know so well.

I'll be pretty busy the first part of this week as we are trying to finalize the first draft of a three country atlas for sequestration. It's going pretty smooth so far, just finalizing a few things and making sure they are kosher with previously reported publications and come up with a reason why if they are not.

Did anyone see that there was snow this weekend in Snowshoe West Virginia? Let me start the season off right by stating that I hate snow and I am already tired of seeing the white stuff and I haven;t seen the first snowflake yet. I'm ready for Springtime!!!!

First Afternoon Steelers Game of the Year for us

Finally after two weeks of Birthday parties and a Sunday Night game last week, we finally get a chance to sit and watch an afternoon game with the Pittsburgh Steelers playing. They take on the Houston Texans this afternoon at 1:00 in Houston.

We have already done our Sunday Morning Grocery shopping, we actually did it at 1:00 this morning as we both fell asleep and took naps after the Mountaineer Game and were both wide awake, so we beat the rush and made the most of it in the early AM.

Have a great day and Go Stillers.

Saturday Morning Rumblings

You know when you work a full time job, and are leaving for work an hour earlier so you can get a good workout in before you start work and sometimes are there a little later because of some approaching deadlines for a three country Atlas that will see the highest executive office, time tends to run a little bit short of free time. Couple that with trying to get Michelle out on the trails as well and your days just got longer.

Couple that with things we do around the house like grocery shopping and making sure all of the bills are not only paid, but paid early so there is nothing to worry about. You have a full week and there really is not much downtime.

Last night I wanted to spend some quality time with my wife so we headed out to the Buckwheat Festival, but stopped at the Methodist Church in Masontown to get my fill of Buckwheat Cakes. I was going to be good and only eat one plate, but Michelle doesn't care for them and offered me hers. AS we were eating I witnessed raining running down on the edge of the church, so I knew that the Buckwheat Festival would be a mud pit and we opted to just take a drive and enjoy the evening.

This morning with weather permitting we are going to make breakfast and try to head out to the trails with Sadie, then it will most likely be our weekly Sams Club shopping trip to gather a few items that we get from there ie bulk lunch meats, soda, almonds, meats or spices etc.

This afternoon at 3:30, I would like to take a little time out and watch the Mountaineers play Bowling Green. That and probably a movie or some pawn stars this evening and that will pretty much be our day until tomorrow morning when we do our regular grocery shopping followed by our first Steelers game of the year (its week 4) that we can actually be able to sit down in the early afternoon and watch.

Our days are long and our free enjoyment time is short, you have to be able to budget your time efficiently to be able to do everything you want to do and not miss anything.
