Why I hate Virginia

It's full of roads that look like this...


Scenes like this...






It's full of old buldings.....






It's real spooky too....




Even the sky is spooky..




A few more misc examples of why I hate Virginia.......why should they have a whole state full of this stuff?






Hey Virginia!! Stop hogging all this cool stuff!!

If you hate Virginia, you are really going to hate West Virginia. It has a lot of the same stuff, beautiful back roads , great old buildings, terrific rivers and bridges to cross, wonderful mountain vistas.

Oh, those were just a few things I was reminded of this Sunday.
I've got lots of reasons to hate Virginia...

Take for instance how they get rid of their trains and turn the tracks into bike paths...




While the poor old train sits locked in a cage...


weary hikers can't even catch a ride anymore...


All the while they're just hogging more scenery......


As if it wasn't bad enough that Virginia's full of these crooked roads...they had to go and exploit that poor banjo too!!!


I'm sure there's plenty of more reasons to hate Virginia.......

Yeah. Screw that place. Too bad there's nothing to see there.

I love my state.

It's just that every day the Virginia I love shrinks a little more. I just hope I die before it does.

It's a terrible thing for so many cute little farms to be one state.








Then they think they have to hang on to roads that aren't even suitable for cars!!




It's just downright hatefull......


.....that all these curves are stuck way up in Virginia!!






Hate it

Thanks.....
I should have slowed it down a little more..
But I was just playing around...

I use paint shop pro 7..
A very good friend gave me...
I use the Animation Shop 3 Part of the program

I have dial up so I size photos to 600x450.
As for embedding that's easy ...
Right click copy n paste...
Just remember you need to know what your host allows in kb
and keep your animation smaller then it....

Just up load as any other photo.... It will be a gif....
Hey if I can do it anyone can....

I see that it's time for the Commonwealth to update our immigration policy.
