I just returned from a trip to Mayberry, NC yesterday. OK, maybe I only went about 15 miles down the road to Clear Lake, WI, but I sure felt like I was in Mayberry at Andy and Opie's house. If you have not heard of the Taylor Home Inn, you should check out their website (www.taylorhomeinn.com). If you enjoyed the Andy Griffith Show, you really need to visit Dave and Marsha there. They have built their Bed & Breakfast to look just like the Taylor's home in Mayberry. It is truly amazing. There is Wally's Station, too if you want to sit down and have a pop. They have been busy painting downstairs and I can't wait to go back and see it. They are re-creating the Courthouse down there. If you should go there, just tell them I sent you :)
Marsha had a little project that she wanted some help with. She got her hands on some Chinese Take-out boxes and wanted to decorate them and use them as part of a little thank you gift for staying at their Inn. (Remember the episode with Aunt Bea working at the Chinese place?) I helped her with a few ideas and then we set up a Close To My Heart gathering for her. I even showed her how to make a fortune cookie out of paper. Our "Unforgettable" paper worked just perfect for this project.I am so excited, because by the time I go back, the Courthouse should be complete. Maybe I'll even get to go in Otis' cell or sit at Andy's desk!
If you want to set up your own gathering, just let me know, I would be happy to help you out. As you can see, I love lots of little challenges!
