Here is one that might stretch the imagination. If Mayberry were a real town what would it look like today?
Here are a few of my imaginings:
I can see Floyd's Barber Shop (which later became Emmet's Fix It Shop) might now be a used CD/Movie/Comic Book exchange in the front with aTatoo Parlor in the back. "Mayberry Movie and Ink" Owned by Goober's son Clint. Clint is canvased with tats, wears a bandanna, leather vest , rides a Harley, has been married three times, fathered five children and is currently looking for his fourth wife.
The Junction Cafe (where all the truckers went to talk to Juanita) has been replaced by a Walmart complete with a Starbucks, McDonalds and free WiFi. This drove Weaver's Dept. Store and out of business back in the 90's. Weaver's is now ??? Anybody??
The TV Shop/Funeral Parlor is gone and was replaced by a high end coffee shoppe, Brew Drop In, We Roast the Beans, So You Don't Have To. Quite different from the old cup of joe you got at the diner. Otis found a lawyer in Mt. Pilot in the early 1970s who got him on SS Disability. No problem buying booze now.
