Well, would you?  Would you be willing to leave behind the air conditioners, the computers, the large flat screen TVs, the fast food places and all the things we've become accustomed to having to go to live in Mayberry as it was then?   Andy and all the rest would be there.  You too would get to see movies at the Grande and eat at the diner.  I don't know about you, but I'd be on the first bus!

I'm glad someone brought back these old posts. Fun reading them now. I must have had a beard back then cause my post was deep and it made me sound really smart! LOL

HA!  Good one, Joe.  I've heard that growing a beard will increase your IQ by 50 points!

Me too Susan. I'd be right behind you

What would you do first?

It's a very strong possibility that I would move to Mt. Airy You have the right ideaSusan

What I'll do first if it is in the daytime is go by the Sheriff's office and sit down and talk awhile with Andy and Barney.  Then I'll go over to the drugstore and get Ellie to make me a soda.  After that, I'll meander a bit, greeting the Mayberry residents and swapping gossip.  By late afternoon I'll walk to the Taylors' place and ask Aunt Bee if I can help fix supper.  If she says "Yes," we'll work together in the kitchen frying chicken and making mashed potatoes and green peas with apple pie for dessert.  We'll talk and laugh the whole time.  Opie will come in and say, "Hi," and ask for a snack.  Later I'll eat supper with the Taylors and Barney (and I'd like to invite Thelma Lou too).

After supper we'll sit on the porch and rock in the rocking chairs while Andy plays his guitar.  From time to time we'd all join in on one of the old hymns--harmonizing beautifully, of course.  Well wave and speak to anybody walking by on the sidewalk, and maybe gossip just a TEENY bit about them, too.  But only in the friendliest possible way.  If the Taylors invite me I'll surely spend the night.  Opie will do "Adventure Sleeping" on the ironing board and I'll sleep in his bed (after removing half a peanut butter sandwich from under the pillow).  Can't sleep in the spare room because it's full of extra furniture, suitcases, Aunt Bee's fruit (canning) jars, out-of-season clothes, Andy's old Army uniforms, and a couple of trunks containing the possessions and remembrances of Opie's Ma.

The sun, of course, will shine every day in Mayberry, so when I wake up in the morning it will be a perfect day.  A perfect day to spend in--Our Home Town,

I've thought about that.  I love my yearly visits there!

I would Invite Andy Barney and Mr. Tucker over for Sunday dinner after church

Then listen to WRLB Mt. Pilot

Go for a pop at Goober's Gas station

Then to Floyd's for a trim and rest in the Barber Chair

Then over to Thelma Lou's for TV " George Raft"
