Our first evening was fishing, exploring, dinner, a bubbly bath for Zachy and David in the giant tub, and a relaxing time in the hot tub for Mom and Dad. The only downer was Mom getting pulled over by a policeman on the way back from dinner. Speeding.....bummer. But he got one look at the sweet, beautiful boys in the back seat watching a movie, and could only issue a warning. WHEW !!!!!
Saturday included leaving our cabin and driving to a new motel that had a great little home cooking type restaurant. Best bowl of slow cooked green beans we have ever had. Then a quick nap followed by a drive over to the Cass Scenic Railroad! We road an old steam engine train. The "Fiddles and Viddles" ride. Up the mountain to a great buffet dinner, some bluegrass tunes and some great exploring by David and Zachy. Back down the mountain to the hotel in time for Zachy to have a bath before bed and for David to catch a cute little frog. Sunday was breakfast and a ride up the mountains to a remote little place to catch big ole trout. Three, to be exact. One was 20 inches long! Mom even tried a little fly fishing! Zachy said, ' -ish ! -ish!" Loves those fish! David was a great fisherman and Daddy did the hard work. An ice cooler and some ice and off for home with 3 "ish"! We finished the day with the all American dinner at Shoneys. We were tired but happy and glad that we have discovered alot of fun in West Virginia! Wow! What a fun filled weekend!

Our estranged cat Morris has returned home after well over a year's absence. He has been roughing it in the wilds of Kings Park West like a feline version of Eric Rudolph: living off the land and avoiding the man. Morris’s first order of business upon return was peeing in Herbie and Mollie’s dog food. While he could have been confused having been away from a litter box for so long, it was clearly a political statement. Given his experiences with the beagles it is understandable. We are happy have Morris back, but we are not sure how long this will last.
