==============================================

* If you consider it a sport to sit in a tree stand all day long with a
bow or a gun just to put food in your freezer, you might live in West
Virginia. Check

* If you're proud that your region makes the national news 96 nights
each year because Elkins is the coldest spot in the nation, you might
live in West Virginia.

might live in West Virginia. Saw this in Ansted, Check

* If you instinctively walk like a penguin for five months out of the
year, you might live in West Virginia.

* If someone in a store offers you assistance, and they don't work there,
you might live in West Virginia,...cause you're all so damn friendly. Check


* If your dad's suntan stops at a line curving around the middle of his
forehead, cause he wears a hardhat you might live in West Virginia. Check, except I'm the Dad.


* If you have worn shorts, sunglasses and a parka at the same time, you might live in West Virginia.

* If your town has an equal number of bars and churches, or if you are in
church and your priest or minister asks you to pray for the
MOUNTAINEERS, and wants to get you all home for 1 p.m. kickoff, you
might live in West Virginia.

* If you have had a lengthy telephone conversation with someone who
dialed a wrong number, you might live in West Virginia.

-You wave to 99% of the cars you pass on the road.

-You are sure that Autumn is a gift from God, and this really is Almost Heaven. Check
