Aunt Bee, Opie Taylor and Andy Griffith. When I say those three names, what comes to your mind? Perhaps you can see Andy and Opie walking down the gravel road with their fishing poles on their shoulders. Andy in his pressed slacks and Opie with his Levi Jeans and red hair. And then you want to whistle the tune...Whowhowho Wahoowahooo, wahoo woo, who, who, WHO, whowho....This TV show reminds me of the times when things were good. People didn't have to lock their doors. People welcomed each other with pies and other food like a good neighbor should. Boys went fishing and looking for worms and not trouble.

|Shelton Winery Vineyard|
Shelton Winery, where Charlie Shelton, one of the two brothers that own it, came out and greated everyone personally. I asked if this was normal, and they said, yes every day! I was pleasantly surprised when I drove down the grape rows that they had gone the EXTRA step and planted a rose bush on the end of every row and even a birdhouse was nailed to the last post of the first row! I also visited Grassy Creek Winery which has an interesting story. It was built on an old dairy farm. The old barn is still there. So their logo for their sweet wine is a Guernsey Cow. They bottle their sweet wines to distinguish them from their other wines in milk bottles that have the Golden Guernsey Cow logo on them! Wine from a milk jar! The only thing that questioned their business commitment was the fact that they are only open Thursday - Saturday and by appointment only but just like everything else in the area, the old milk jars and business times reminded me of the good 'ole days!
