Last weekend when we went hiking at Beartown State Park in WV, we stopped in White Sulphur Springs for coffee at Micky D's. This has to be the classiest McDonalds I have ever been in, but considering it is in the town that is home to the Greenbriar Hotel ~ Resort and the Greenbriar Golf Classic, I guess it has to be pretty nice. The shadows coming in through all the lovely glass windows were spectacular. It was in this McDonalds that I found the "Harvest Time" sign I posted for the "Signs, Signs" meme sponsored by Lesley.
Here is some follow-up information on the Greenbriar
I thought might interest some you war buffs.

from the late 1950's until in 1992.
Ted Gup of the Washington Post revealed its secret location in a 1992 story. The bunker had been a secret until that time and had been fully stocked with supplies for 39 years. The classified, underground facility, was named "Project Greek Island." Immediately after the Washington Post revealed its information, the government decommissioned the bunker. It is no longer used but people can make reservations to tour it. There is still much to see there.
All of my information is courtesy of Wikipedia. There is one definitive and fabulous article about the bunker with it is way too long to include in this post. Here is the link should you wish to see and learn more:
It tells the story of the bunker in words and pictures and is a fascinatings article well worth reading. Me, I am mesmerized my the story. We had no idea that such a massive and important bunker was located so close to our home.
