One Final Look at the West Virginia Wedding....
Sunday, Coming Home_____
Sausage, eggs, bacon, more sausage(both links and patties), fresh fruit, coffee, juices, biscuits, and crescent rolls, were on the menu....and we ate well...thankfully despite the over eating this past weekend, I have dropped back to my pre-weekend weight, but it wasn't easy.
After breakfast we said our good-byes, until we hook up again at the delayed(by choice) reception in the Dayton area on February 19th. The Hemmelgarn's and our car decided to drive Highway 19 past the New River Gorge(where we would stop for a photo shoot), then take US 60, the long and winding Federal road, back towards Charleston, where it would hook up with the interstate. We would then cut off on US 35 just south of the Ohio River, and head towards Columbus, time wise not a great savings, but 75 miles shorter save some gas money and the monotony of the boring Interstate trip. Once there, we would drop off the Tuxedos at the Men's Warehouse location, and then Sam at his apartment near the Ohio State Campus. Back onto US 33 we would go, and arrive home at 4:15pm. There we were greeted by a previous days 6 inches of heavy, wet, snow that plugged our walks and driveway. That would take another hour or so to clean out....then I sat down with a couple of cold beers, and watched the Packers squeeze out a victory over Pittsburgh...which topped off a excellent weekend indeed.
3 more basketball games to work this week...tonight a Girls JV game at Van Wert, tomorrow I stay in Celina to work a WBL Boys contest at the historic Fieldhouse, then Saturday I finish up the week at Allen East for another Girls JV contest. By that time the deep freeze should be broken with highs reaching the mid 30s, and hopefully upward from there by the middle of next week.
Photos-The look at the New River Gorge Bridge on US 19 near Fayetteville, West Virginia. Kim and Tim fix breakfast for the masses on Sunday morning before our departure....and Sam standing on the platform before it begins it 600 foot walk down the wood stairs into the gorge....I would have walked down, but time, and the realization that I had no chance of making the walk back up the stairs kept me on top of the situation.
