A Happy Little Southern Town

Why is it that some important messages take nearly a life time before we see the obvious? There has been an plain fact right in front of my nose since the 1960’s And I have only recently recognized it. Any Andy Griffith Show fans here? Does and body remember Mayberry? A peaceful quiet Southern town where everybody was happy. Now I know why. Andy, Barney, Aunt Bea, Floyd the barber, Howard, Goober, Gomer, Earnest T. Bass, Helen, Thelma Lou, Clara, and, of course, Little Opie were not married. The only married one in town was Otis, and he stayed drunk. Does that make sense to you?

We were just in Mayberry (Mount Airy) yesterday and commented on the same thing. Later we saw a couple of police officers in a restaurant. I resisted the urge of approaching them with a question. (It might prove to be a good subject for a discussion this week.)

@Morleyhunt OK but you know I'm running on borrowed time. Hope it won't be long.

Nothing. I was just making an observation. She never does anything wrong.

Maybe it's a Southern thing. Have you ever been to the deep South @amadeo ?

I remember watching Mayberry. In fact it's still on TV. I see a rerun every once in awhile. I never thought about Otis being the only married guy in town but you're right.
