Title: Re: Happy Birthday to "Otis"
Post by: Keats on September 27, 2010, 01:26:05 PM
An old Restaurant My Grandmother loved to go to.

Some of you are probably wondering, why I posted this in this thread,

This is basically in Randy's backyard.

My family was from Princeton and as a child we always went back to visit family.

My brother and I went back last fall and really had a great time recounting fond memories of that town.

One side of the family came from the coal mines in Arista and Dot, not much left other than gas lines in the woods.

I should just start a new thread with picts........

Keats you dont understand how close you were when you said my back yard i live on 16 acres that join the back side of the finks property on blackoak road, dont know the old motel name i know the building in matoka and iam guessing the other pic is lake bottom dont tell till Hubbard looks he as lived here longer than me.

Keats,

I was raised in Turkey Gap hollow, at Dott.  My Dad was killed there at the Prep. Plant, in 1972.  I think that is Main Street, in Matoaka.  I think the building beside the Carter Building is the old Sportsman Grille, Poolroom.  I could be wrong.  The Ferris Wheel is at the old Lake Shawnee property.  I've seen the blue building before, just can't recall where it was.  Are the steps leding to the little pond up Turkey Gap Hollow, or Arista? The old Hotel is the Virginian, in Princeton, WV.  Later--HUBBARD

DING DING DING

Hubbard you win the prize and are 100% correct.

There are not many that could have answered those.

Hotel Virginian was a Princeton landmark for many years.

The baptismal was right at the road ON ROUTE 10 and you can walk down to what is left of the Tipple and Company store.

Blue building is on route 10 right where it splits at 19     York?

Lake Shawnee (swimming pool huge) and outdoor park

Hey Yall

I just heard they are gonna have a new TV show on this fall, kind of a cross between "Then came Bronson" and "BJ and the Bear". A crusty motorcycle rider tours the country with his sidekick and high jinks ensue.

I got a spy picture of the Starring Cast of "Otis and the Bear".

Mike's post...
As you are both undoubtedly aware, Otis had a 2001 triple red before he bought the 2002 black and gray Road Glide.

I bought his triple red when he traded it in on the 2002.

On a separate note I am not usually terribly emotional, but during this years MV GTG I had occasion to ride up the big hill on 26 out of Asheville in a group ride with many of the GTG regulars including several fellow HBRR members. Every time I rode with Otis to or from MV he wanted to race up this hill, even on his last trip there.

I teared up just a little thinking about our departed friend.

Reminded me that Otis' birthday was this month. Otis was one of the first people I met from the site and we travelled to MV '06 together stopping on the way to visit Mike.

Happy Heavenly Birthday Otis.  :2vrolijk_06:
