I Miss Mayberry

Time passes and things seem to get busier and busier and soon we will forget the simplicity that was once part of life in a small town.   For nearly the past twenty years the world has been connected and made to seem very small and now everyone is connected. 

“I miss Mayberry, 

Sitting on the porch drinking, 
Ice cold Cherry Coke, 
Where everything is black and white, 
Picking on a six string, 
Where people pass by and you call
Them by their first name, 
Watching the clouds roll by.”

-Rascal Flatts

Mount Airy, NC is the epitome of the small town; it is also the childhood home of Andy Griffith and inspiration of Mayberry from the Andy Griffith Show.   I had the chance to walk through the town and even have dinner at Barney’s I was reminded of a time not too long ago when the world was smaller and we all knew and cared for one another.

We moved from the big city (sprawling Los Angeles) to a small town in Coastal BC. Takes two ferries (or an airplane) to get here. Not many jobs, so we are losing our youth back to the big cities. But for us retired folk, it fits like a glove. - Margy

I've always been drawn to the big cities during my youth (in large part because of the job market). I'm much more drawn to the Mayberry's now... and looking forward to retirement so I can do more than visit!
