We’re getting to love these small town festivals! Mount Airy is a town of about 10,000 people, about 45 minutes north of us, in a beautiful setting at the foot of the Blue Ridge mountains. It was the birthplace and childhood home of Andy Griffith, and is the inspiration for the “Mayberry” setting of the Andy Griffith Show. In this part of the world, you can see a rerun of the Andy Griffith Show every day. Personally, that’s way, way, way too much Andy Griffith for me, but I guess it’s kinda cool. The spirit lives on with Mayberry art, old fashion police cars, stores and products, etc.
It was a great day! I’m grateful for so many things, especially the deep fried Oreos! 🙂
