Happy Summer! Mayberry is alive and well! Sort of.
It’s been almost a full year since the new Paystations have been put into the city and I’m happy to report, the locals still don’t know how to use them. Quite honestly, I think they like to complain more about them than actually LEARN how to use new technology. Typical. People don’t like change – its evident.
I enjoy change myself.. keeps life very interesting.
We have a new cast of characters that work in the city. One day I will introduce you to Vinnie from Jersey. Moreover, the Jersey Shore… A big city boy, with big city dreams, plunked down in a tiny city. Good luck with that Vinnie. My very favorite AT&T guy still roams the city with his Carribou Coffee in hand and chatting up the ladies… Harlen the window washer guy is busy as ever and his business has doubled since starting.
Our loved Canteen hasn’t opened this year. The American Legion didn’t have interest in reestablishing the business. Which is very unfortunate for me. I miss chatting with the Mayberry old timers. Once in awhile I will see a group of them sitting at McDonalds in the early morning – talking, laughing… reminiscing. The stories are history – Mayberry history.
I haven’t met any celebrities yet… however… I THINK I saw Vince Neil from Motely Crue walk right in front of my vehicle a few weeks ago. Kick start my heart… he’s still dreamy.. in an old rock star, overweight with wrinkles sort of way. He smiled and waved at me. It was a glorious day…
Please pay attention and pay the paystations when you come and visit me in Mayberry. I *might* tell you an amazing story about my brush with Vince Neil.. from Motely Crue..
See you soon….
