I'm fairly new here and when I first started I signed what I thought was the nick name I wanted. But later I discovered someone already had that name and I didn't want to get in trouble for posting under someones elses name. So I kind of thought I'd wait and see for a while.

The boy just STOPS the ball & throws a frozen rope to first. Third base is where line drives go to die when he's out there. Is it the laughter and excitement of the players? Is it the fact the only colors which matter are the uniforms? Could it be perhaps be the individual effort tied to a team? Maybe it's the perfect green of the field and the straight white markings of the baselines. The history, mayhap? I don't know. I know there have been two World Wars, numerous "conflicts" and a Depression........ baseball has been the constant..... Good to see all y'all..... Blessings, Jake

Hey to 776/797, and WELCOME TO MAYBERRY!!! I'm afraid the nick "Birdie Blush" is already bein' used by a feller here in virtual Mayberry. I don't recall whether he's dropped by the Porch just yet or not, but to be safe, I'd pick another nick if I's you. So you're female, huh? And you don't fish. Can you give us any other insights into your character? There's loads of female TAGS names that aren't being used yet. Let's see... There's Lucy Matthews, and Betty Ann, and Bunny Caldwell, and Charlotte (one of Opie's girlfriends), and Darlene Swanson, and Ellen Brown, and Ramona Wiley, and Pearly Mae DuBois, and Tyla Lee Vernon, just to name a few!

Well, I'd better git goin' now. I'll see ya.

I'll ask a dumb question: if a name is being used on Miss Crumps board, does that mean you can't use it here? Do the people use the same name on both? Because I was thinking of Elenora Poultice as my name here, but I see there is already one on the board. Or maybe here too, but I haven't seen it... 776

June 13, 2001 - Msg 803: I wouldn't do that...mainly just because there would be confusion as to who was talking. There's lots of names that aren't taken yet...so if I were you...I'd try for one of those. One thing, it's kind of a tradition that nobody chooses Andy or Barney as a Nickname. You can, and folks have, picked names that are simular to Andy or Barney (ie. Barney2001, Ange, etc) but just not Andy or Barney...out of respect.

June 13, 2001 - Msg 804: Yer welcome 776 you'll like it here, folks are nice, real nice! I agree with Floyd lots of folks go to both places & use the same name.

Rafe! You had apricot preserves with breakfast? Wow! I have never had them before. The most exotic jelly or preserve I've ever had was Blackberry Jam. This elderly man, who had to have been in his 80's if he was a day, used to make it homemade for my Grandma and we'd eat it with every meal! But I just had honeycomb's this morning...eating a heavy breakfast and then going to work with NO a/c - well, that'll lay on your chest!

You know how people prepare for the cold winters by taping up windows and all? Well, here at the Bushey cabin, we do things a little backwards. We tape up our windows in the summer! If we don't, I get ANTS in my kitchen! I had about 11 of em on the counter the other morning and then they got to be moving around a bit each day afterward. I can't stand ants in the kitchen! I only have to tape up the kitchen window with masking tape around the edges....

bad thing is if Gilly is cooking (he cooks everything on HIGH cuz he is too impatient to wait! LOL) then there is no way to let the smoke out!

It was an 18-wheeler and a little car, and I believe the 18-wheeler won, but nobody was really the winner, 'cause BOTH vehicles went up in flames, and the truck lost its ENTIRE load across the other lanes of the freeway, and IT caught on fire, too! That's why nobody could get by, y'see. ANYway... They got the car and truck moved off to the side, and the leftover load of whatever it was (still smokin' and smolderin') moved outta the way, and traffic is just now gettin' back to normal.

And it's a fun day. It's just a fun day all the way around.

I was watching the episode where Barney accidently
catches that escaped murderer convict when he is writing him a ticket for littering and when the crowd gathered there was a black woman standing right behind Barney.
I know ages ago we discussed the lack of black people in Mayberry.
Never had noticed that before. I'm getting ept.
Everyone have a nice day. Happy Birthday to your Dad, Rafe.
That wreck must have been horrific to see.
Glad you got some air conditioning are work Idelle.
