I live in Mayberry

Munhall, Pennsylvania. Just outside Pittsburgh (bordering on the City limits) home to about 10,000 people, 5 fire companies, part of the Waterfront, a large cemetery, and ummm well, it’s Munhall. It’s nice because it’s close to all the necessities. There’s the Waterfront, Mall, Sandcastle, Downtown, Kennywood and all that fun stuff.
Even on a more local level, on Main Street for example (yes, Main Street) there is a gas station, fire station, grocery store, pharmacy, card store, numerous tanning salons and numerous pizza companies.

Anyway, if you read my last post you can probably tell that it’s a rather friendly community for the most part.
I heard this town referred to as Mayberry the other day. It’s true!
I didn’t know of Andy Griffith before I came to the US but I’ve watch a fair bit of the Andy Griffith Show you can walk up and down the main street, wave at people, talk to people, stop in to a couple of businesses to sit and talk for a while. Hang around a while and you’re known at the post office and the pharmacy.
I can relate this town to the Isle of Man in certain ways, the small town atmosphere, the microcosm.

Anyway, I just thought I’d put that out there. Even though you’ve likely never heard of Munhall I’m pretty sure you’ve been in it/through it.

Stay a while next time.
