Raven's Saturday Wordzzle

Each week Raven throws out groups of words for us to take and put in a short coherent paragraph. The challenge gets our creative juices rolling and we get to be writers for a day. Some of Raven's regulars are extremely good at this so I hope you'll click on the logo and head over to her place and read some REALLY good stories.
I only attempted the mini challenge this week. The words for that challenge I've highlighted in blue.

Here is my offering for the mini challenge:

Johnny drank his coffee and munched on a poppy seed muffin as he scanned his eyes over the diagram of his new car for the upcoming drag race. He was overly excited to be racing in his hometown of Charleston, West Virginia. He'd raced numerous places across the United States but was looking forward to being in front of a hometown crowd. In no uncertain terms that whole hometown boy makes good theme appealed to him. As he sat there daydreaming he imagined Take Me Home Country Roads would be playing over the loud speakers at the starting lineup and good ole John Denver would be up there in heaven swinging from a star, listening in and cheering him on!
