Just one more thing WV and SXM have in common.....
      #1593855 - 06/10/14 12:26 PM (75.151.242.49)

I've always said SXM was like a second home. They have rolling hills with gorgeous views, we have rolling hills with gorgeous views. They have roundabouts, we have roundabouts. Both have friendly people. SXM has wonderful beaches surrounded by turquoise blue water - yeah, we don't have that. But we do have a couples lakes with some sand.

Imagine my surprise when I saw this today...just had to chuckle

I figured they were talking about Avalon. It's a cool place with really great people. Try it sometime!!

Having spent a good bit of time in both WV and SXM, I've come up with something they do actually have in common. They are both north of the equator.

Another thing you have in common is that no one throws away old appliances, they make yard art out of them.

I have to admit - I was going to throw that in there, but decided not to. LOL! That and rusted cars in the yard! Yep, just like home

The ambiance at Club Orient and at Avalon are very similar...both are clothing optional, both have friendly, easy going regular customers, neither requires you to "join", and both are relaxing places to enjoy yourself. We have been going to Club O on vacation since 1997 and Avalon members since 2001. They are our two favorite places on Earth to relax and unwind...naturally!

Do they burn couches in the middle of the street in SXM?

Get to drive through WV twice this coming weekend - lucky me.

It's a big deal in Morgantown. Here is a web link to an article about it.

Okay, being from Morgantown qualifies me to answer this one. Yes, it is a standing joke around here and one that has been capitalized on in the past (you can find "couch" candles so you can burn your own) But truth be known, it is the university students running that game. A couple of years ago, it was pretty bad but has definitely quieted down in the last few years.

That being said, when my son was in the 3rd grade (and now a WVU student himself), looked at me in all honesty as we passed a Rent-A-Center and asked "What are they doing with all the couches outside? Are they going to burn them?" LOL-yep, that's life in Motown!
