Doing the Town...
|Gary was pretty happy... we just happened |
on a car show right in the heart of town.
|The infamous Barber shop where Andy and all the gang got their hair cut.|
|Well, I guess it was modeled after this place...|
And low and behold, it just happened to be Floyd's birthday celebration. We were greeted warmly the moment we walked in the door and everyone kept asking us where we were from.
"Come on over, sit down... have some cake!"
One thing is for sure.
People in Mayberry (Mt. Airy) N.C.
Wow! There was Floyd! He was turning 88 and still cutting hair! Gary said, "Yep, that's the real Floyd alright!"
Hey, I'm pretty gullible... and he LOOKED like he could be the real Floyd.
I was disappointed to find out that he was wasn't the real Floyd. But...
Andy's real life cousin and (cousins son) were there (above)... so that made up for the fake Floyd disappointment.
We had fun going about town, checking out the museums...
And visiting Opie's Candy Store...
|"I knew I shouldn't have lifted those licorice sticks!"|
|"Accomplice? What's an accomplice?"|
