Wild and Wonderful West Virginia
Wahoooo, we are now in letter W. So gather up your wonderful thoughts and let us make the blog world wobble and rockin. Don't be afraid to post some wacky faces or weird poses. You can even add your favorite welsh corgi or your fur babies with white whiskers while they wiggle their tails.
Whatever it is that you want to share, don't forget the Wild and Wonderful West Virginia. The small city of Weirton, West Virginia is where we live. Wheeling and Weston are just some of the beautiful cities of "Almost Heaven" or the Mountain State. I love our state bird, which is the cardinal, but I also love wood peckers.
According to the source I found, West Virginia became the 35th State on June 20, 1863 with an area of 24,232 sq. miles. Before joining the union, the State was called "Kanawha", an Indian Name meaning "A Place of White Stone".
So are you ready to write down your words of wisdom? Bring it on and let me leave this wish I have in mind. "I want to visit and see the beautiful states of Washington and see the White House, then Wisconsin, and Wyoming.
Alrighty, it's time to eat some waffles so I'll see your wagon full of W's in a bit.
