Mayberry, NC

Barney Fife: [Barney is writing a song, doesn't know Andy is standing behind him, sung to the tune of Clementine] "In a jailhouse/down in dixie/fighting crime and risking lives/live a sheriff/ and his buddy pistol packing Barny Fife. Oh my daring/oh my daring/ oh my daring Barney Fife/He's a deadly crime stopper/what a copper Barney Fife. Then one day there/came a ridin'/two bad men to rob a bank. But Fife was tricky/a deadeye dickie/now they're locked up in the tank.... Andy Taylor: ...Oh my Barney/Oh my Barney/had a jail but couldn't lock it/had one bullet for his pistol/had to keep it in his pocket" - From a great episode of the Andy Griffith Show

I love The Andy Griffth Show and especially the Don Knotts character Barney Fife. There are so many great moments in the show and they are still funny today after all these years. I have always wanted to visit Andy Griffith's hometown and Mayberry inspiration, Mt. Airy, North Carolina. After almost six years of living two hours away from the place we finally took a day trip earlier this month. It's nothing major but it was fun to see some of the memorabilia, from the show, meet the real life Floyd and eat at Barney cafe! Enjoy the pictures.

Top 10 list - the Bucket list

We recently watched the movie the Bucket List about two men with cancer who are dying and decided to do all the things they want to do before they die. Of course it is sort of en vogue to make up these sort of lists, so I am putting mine in the form of yet another top 10 contest. This time I will give away a $5 card!

So here it is my Top 10 things I hope to do before I kick the bucket (may that day be far from today).

10. Take a cruise to Hawaii. Patsy can't fly but we would still like to go there someday.

9. Hike or ride to the bottom of the Grand Canyon and then white water raft on the Colorado River.

8. Hike to the top of Ayers Rock in the Land Down Under. I have no idea how I can get there without my bride.

7. Meet Maureen McCormick, with my wife there of course!

6. Drive to Alaska on the Alaskan highway

5. Go whale watching

4. Have Harrison Ford sign my leather bomber

3. Welcome at least one daughter-in-law to my family

2. Hold my grandchild

1. ??????
