I attended Mayberry Days in 2006 and went to the poetry book signing on Main St where I had my book signed by Kathryn Daren the book's publisher and a Mayberry tribute artist herself. I introduced myself to her and she told others in line that I was the one who wrote the tribute to Barney in the book. Several people asked me to sign their book. I was embarrassed but I obliged. Kathryn asked me to return to a book signing later that day but other obligations prevented this from happening.…


Poem by Joe Hoover from Greencastle Pa.

A few years back I somehow stumbled onto a web site called Christian Activities. They were going to make a poetry book called A Tribute to Mayberry. Throughout my years in life I have had several friends tell me that I should have been some kind of poet or writer but not having the will or determination I have never pursued this option. So just to satisfy myself and others I grew a beard and started to think. I figured if it worked for Goober it might work for me. I sat down one day and in a…

Hey Joe, The zip line is the line that you go from tree to tree like a

If you go to you can see it, it is about 30 minutes from Mt Airy. It takes me about 3 hours to get there so it's not too bad. You really should go sometime.

I Love going to Mayberry Days every year but once year I like to go when it is not so crowded. There usually are some tourist there but not nearly as many as during Mayberry Days. Mt Airy is such a nice place to go for a relaxing weekend and I try to find different things to do. I am going to try the zip line this time...sounds like fun huh?

Hey Joe, do you belong to a local chapter of TAGSRWC? If not, maybe we should start one. I got an idea for a name—"Beat To The Socks" from Andy's Vacation. I'm thinking of building a man cave, too. Ha!

Joe, I thought I had a big got me beat! you have some very cool items. Alot I reconize because I have them I see there is alot I don't have!

I like the unusal things that you just can't find everywhere. Where did you get the Andy & Barney statues?  They look to be proto types for the Mayberry Village pewter figurines? Hopefully your family & friends understand your "passion" and not compelsion.....Thanks for sharing your photo's ..Goober-Fife......
