You Will Be Fine by Friday

Wisdom and wit from the Cats Eye Bar and Grill, Hedgesville, W.V.

Herein lies a collection of random quotes and bits of wisdom I gathered from my fellow patrons of the local bar, the Cat's Eye Bar and Grill, which serves the largest -- and coldest -- mug of Bud Light in Hedgesville, West Virginia. I offer these quotes and observations without context, nor attribution, nor judgment. Also there are photos here from those evenings I found the wherewithal to visually document the ambiance.

This compendium will be periodically updated with fresh material, so check back every so often, preferably with a frosty mug of Bud Light.
