Thanksgiving in Mayberry

Mayberry was that small Southern town where everybody knew their neighbors and Sheriff Andy Taylor was everyone's father figure in a simpler time and place. Imagine what a Mayberry Thanksgiving might have been like!

Thanksgiving in Mayberry
T hanksgiving in Mayberry --
H elen and Ope home from school,
A ndy closes the Courthouse;
N ow Aunt Bee sets the rules,
K eeping everything just so,
S ets the table, cooks the food,
G iving each guest big helpings
I n the day's festive mood.
V ery soon all are seated
I n the Taylor's residence
N ow it's time for grace, says Andy,
G ives thanks for God's providence.
