Oh, how peaceful and what a comfortable night. I came in to hear the news and now it is bedtime.

July 18, 2001 - Msg 1269: With all these bulletin boards about "The Andy Griffith Show" I've been thinking about creating the town of Mayberry with bulletin boards. This is what I have in mind; have a web page, maybe call it Main Street, with the links to all the bulletin boards on it. Each bulletin board picks a location of Mayberry as there logo, for instance, I've changed my bulletin board to the "Mayberry Courthouse", "Miss Crump's" bulletin board could be the schoolhouse and Goober's place would be "Wally's Fillin' Station", etc...
Let me know if you are interested in being part of this. If so, simply reply to this post and include your web site address and logo. Please choose a logo based on a Mayberry structure or like Viola's "Mayberry Gossip Club", not something like, "Barney's Bullet" or "Opie's Toothbrush".
It will take a while to complete, but please send your requests as soon as you can, so I can be better prepared for this project. Also, the longer you wait the more likely someone is to use your logo!
With this set up, when someone wants to get a bottle of pop, head over to Goober's bulletin board, when someone wants to gossip, "The Mayberry Gossip Club" is for you, and so on. It will help make our bulletin boards more realistic and gives a feeling of everyone working together, in instead of each bulletin board being on it's own little island.
Let me know what you think.

Mavis, my famly makes up all kinds of words - we have family "rebellions" instead of reunions and we say "bas$-ackwards" for the other word that's unprintable.
My husband just usually shakes his head when we are all together. My dad really has some unique stories.

Channel 58 in Louisville has the best Mayberry commercial - it is called the "Songs of Mayberry" and the show clips of Gomer, Rafe, The Barbershop Quartet being available on CD. It is cute but it is only available by watching TAGS. Real cute!

Fun Girl - my four year old will be going to a Christian school this fall (early for him because he won't turn 5 until October) and I am doing the uniform search. Trying to find inexpensive clothes because he will be out of them before I can turn around. He is taller than his cousins so the hand-me-downs aren't there anymore.

Well. .I need to go work on my goats - right now, goats are my life! (I may have to change my name).

is eleven and growin' like a weed. He will be in the 5th grade this year. He will go to a christian school when he gets into middle school.
I work at the school now and I feel like I know what's going on there, but once they get to middle school, it's a little harder, plus with all the violence and guns and stuff. Well that boy is too precious to take chances with. He is a precious gift from God. Little Opie isn't picky. He wears second hand clothes and as long as he is comfortable for recess, he doesn't care too much.
I asked him last Christmas if he would like some clothes from "Old Navy" while I was there buying something for his cousin. He said "No Mom, I like the clothes I have, which are all nice, but none of them were bought new for him. I am lucky to have a boy. I have a feeling that if I had a girl, things would be different.

Have a good one.

July 18, 2001 - Msg 1278: Mrs. Wiley, having girls is a horse of a different color all together. I have two nephews and a niece and we never knew what a difference there was until little Raegen was born and Lord, what a prissy little thing. You won't see her skeet shooting though you might find her trying to whip Opie. She is full of fire that one, but how she loves to dress up and look purty. She is very picky about what she wears. She wears hand me downs from the other side of the family, but they pay 100-200 dollars for an outfit. I am the lady that goes through the closet at school where we keep the clothes in case someone wets themself or spills their milk at lunch. So a couple times a year, the secretaries ask me to clean the closet. (That's kinda like sweeping the porch for you Floyd.) Anyway, what we don't use they give to a local mission, but they tell me to take anything that will fit Kyle. So far he doesn't mind a bit. There are very nice clothes in the closet, like Nike t-shirts, etc. I just hope no one ever comes up to him and say "Hey that shirt used to be mine." I am one of those people who hate to see anything go to waste. Especially if I can use it (Ha ha)

I know how you feel about your girls, even though Raegen is a sassy little priss, I love her to pieces.

Hey to Hazel. Did you have good luck yesterday? I didn't rub the head of a red-headed boy or have a buckeye in my pocket or anything, so I don't know how good my fish chant worked. Hope it didn't do any harm, anyway.

Hey Asa, I appreciate you thinkin' of me when you planted your corn. That Bodacious brand sounds REAL good to me, and I cain't wait to sink my choppers into it! I don't think it'd be good for distillin', tho, 'cause for that you need a little higher acidity level in your corn in order for the mash to... ummm... that is... I don't know WHAT I'm talking about... Did somebody say something about moonshining? I sure didn't! No, I was just talkin' about corn with my good friend Asa, honest, Deputy. No moonshinin' talk goin' on here! (I'll talk with you later, Asa. Tick-a-lock!) :-)

Hey to my bud *Mavis! No, I didn't move to Raleigh, or take a trip to Charlottesville and get run over by a taxicab or ANYTHING. I just been busy-busy-busy around here lately, and I've been puttin' off my regular visits to the Porch. I'm gonna hafta quit that for sure, 'cause this place shorely is therapetic.

And speakin' of therapetic, loungin' around the pool with my beloveded Charlene and the young 'uns this weekend sure sounds good to me! Watching children at play is one of the fine things in life we too often take for granted. Ahhhh, I can feel them waves flowin' over me now, coolin' me off and revitalizin' me at the same time. Ain't many things better than than on a hot Summer day.

Hey ~Dež~, I'll send you my ICQ number as soon as I can. It's on my other machine. Hope you're doin' well, bud. I ain't chatted with you in awhile!

Ever'body else have a great weekend, and take care of each other. My, aren't we lucky to be livin' in such a friendly town?

I'll see ya.

July 21, 2001 - Msg 1318: Charlene Darling was a strange hillbillie. She didn't walk around barefoot! She should have it would have given her a much cruder,earthier, and more rural feel. Wonder if attractive Maggie Peterson had ugly or scaly feet or something and that's why she didn't walk around barefoot on TAGS.

Morning, porch - Hazel

July 21, 2001 - Msg 1322: Are you going to weed again today, Asa? I guess I'll have to again. Durn things growed back again. Think I'll weed for a while, maybe clean the house a bit, then go over to Rafe's and Charlenes and lounge around the pool. I understand he's got some real good moonshin- ... I mean lemonade that I might like to try. - Hazel

July 21, 2001 - Msg 1323: Hazel I'll brang some good old BEANS Lord knows I got enuf of 'em & we'll all just to to the Hollister Homestead & lounge around the pool & eat! Mornin' to all the porch sitters this mornin'
yep, that's the plan, go to the Hollister's, lounge around the pool, eat....yep believe that's what I'll do, go to the Hollister's,lounge... Oh for crying out loud go girl just go!!

July 21, 2001 - Msg 1324: Mornin Hazel. Sounds like we think alike. My weeds grow like..... well weeds. I think I'll leave the house cleaning for my better half though. She is much more talented at that than I am. I really like your plan for going over to Rafe and Charlene's place. That pool lounging sounds real good later on. And seeing how it's Don Knotts birthday we can partake of some of Rafe's fine elixer. That is after all a special occasion, right?
By the way HAPPY BIRTDAY DON KNOTTS. Hope you enjoy many more.
And hey to Otis 52. What does 52 stand for?


July 21, 2001 - Msg 1325: Mavis, ya snuck in there on me. Mornin to ya. I took a look at your web page. Looks great. If you all are goin to Rafe's to, bring your husband and his guitar and sing Summertime Dream for us.


July 21, 2001 - Msg 1326: Hey all,
Long time, no see. I didn't realize it was my birthday. I've been away and I must have lost track of time. Let's not hash out ancient history.
And I'm not going to stand around here and talk about trivial trivialities.
Have a great day all.
P.S.- I like the front porch green, but I can't find my green paint.
