They are, and I’m coming! I leave tomorrow and I couldn’t be more excited
Nothin like a hot bologna sammich and a sweet tea from Tudor’s to kick this hangover’s butt. #thankgodimacountryboy #baloney #mmm
I need a Peppi, pronto.
Can we all just take a minute to appreciate how serious the “security” guy was? We were literally the only people there. #CalmDown #Baseball #WV #Power #NASCAR #BobbyAllison
Homeward bound! ✈😍♡ #AppalachianHomesickBlues #WV #MtnMomma (at Fort Lauderdale - Hollywood International Airport FLL)
Great — great — photoset.
Home. I’m so homesick it’s a little ridiculous. Thankfully, I’ll be back in West by God in just a couple of weeks!
Monsters, by State
What the hell is a poop monster?!
Probably you after that Taco Bell breakfast.
Raptor? Not too shabby. Meanwhile, they can say WV is “Mothman” but I’m 99% that’s just the Balrog from Baskhi’s animated Lord of the Rings.
Oh someone is doubting the Mothman, eh? Not a good idea…
Definitely remembering this today as many of my friends and family are still terrified to drink the water back home.
We’re poor as fuck because the state is pretty much run by massive coal companies who funnel the profits into other states. They literally destroy the beautiful landscapes of WV (oh hey my water is still contaminated and a river was just contaminated with coal slurry), never feed any of the money back into WV, and then make it almost impossible for other industries to come in to make new jobs.
WV is unhealthy and fat because unhealthy, processed food is cheaper than nutritious food and the state is poor as fuck.
WV also has to continue to hold clinical masters level clinicians as psychologists as a desperate attempt to keep mental health services in WV. Even if therapy wasn’t seen as almost sinful in our culture, it would take some people an hour or more to drive to the nearest therapist.
So, we have no money, no mental health services, and hardly any access to clean water and nitrous food. Yeah, we’re pretty unhappy.
It infuriates me as well because this is a gorgeous state. Just look up New River Gorge, Seneca Rocks, Cranberry Glades, Summersville Lake, Blackwater Falls, and you will see it’s gorgeous. I would love to stay here, but the fight that I would be getting into to change things around here is not one that I am sure I am up for at the moment.
I got this email from MoveOn because I signed the petition demanding clean water (because the government’s official response is ‘It’s fine, just drink it.’). They are urging people to call WV American Water and tell them you’re not drinking the water, that you don’t feel safe….
