Fare Thee Well, SPAAGERT….

SPAAGERT – or Senate President Acting As Governor Earl Ray Tomblin, has left the building.  For a chronologically correct reading of his departure just moments ago, read the bottom tweet first and end at the top.
 
Thanks for everything, sir.  You were simply the best and leave very big, fake, shoes to fill.

God bless you, and God bless the State of West Virginia.

Helmet on, goggles down, and with the tanning bed in tow, we depart for home. The garden calls, the growing season is half over.

And so with an intern in the sidecar, kindly on loan from @SpeakerThompson, and Mrs. Earl Ray behind me, I bid you farewell.

It’s an awfully long way to the Dairy Delight in Chapmanville – where lunch will await. A hot dog with NO SLAW @ASourAppleTree.

Mrs. Earl Ray is in the drive, and the interns have brought the ATV and U-Haul around.

First we must enjoy this magnificent breakfast & savor the moment. The upside is, someone else will have to take Noland to see Harry Potter.

Before Mrs. Earl Ray could say it, I told her I knew. It’s time. And the staff knows, too.

But there’s a look in Mrs. Earl Ray’s eyes – and I know what that means.

Mrs. Earl Ray has gathered the staff – it’s a breakfast buffet from Tudor’s. #amidreaming?

Heading downstairs. Something smells good. Perhaps there’s a surprise for brunch?
