Poor Monty by Tiffany Blair

I think I am going hire out my dog, Monty, as a hairdresser. I say this because his breath could straighten your hair (and maybe even give you highlights).

Wisdom from the Woods: Life Lessons Learned From Being Around Weak People by Jim Shock

By: LBSPY / Category: Blog, Jim Shock, Wisdom from the Woods

Wisdom from the Woods: Life Lessons Learned From Being Around Weak People Lives intersect in the most peculiar way in West Virginia. Like the meandering hollers and seemingly random back roads to nowhere, every path eventually leads somewhere familiar. I couldn’t honestly say what I went to the Dollar Tree for but I left with […]

Mountain Escapade by Craig Miller

By: LBSPY / Category: Blog, C M, Mountain Scene

There is definitely something to be said about getting out of town for a few days. Getting away from your normal day to day, escaping the monotony of it all, yet not necessarily our general setting in the world. The mountain paradise in which we live is alright in my book, yet the familiar senses […]

Curious, I decided to stop in, check out the goods, and talk to the owner, Kenneth “Jonathan” (as he likes to go by) Gibson. Gibson owns the Greenbrier Building […]

Vacation by Tiffany Blair

I need a vacation. More specifically, I need a beach vacation. The last time I went to the beach was in 2009 during a cruise and it was fantastic, start to finish. Given some recent events in the cruise industry, however, I’m going to back-burner a repeat on that particular type of excursion. Call me […]
