When we were passing through Skylar, Virginia this summer, I was excited to pop out and snoop around The Waltons. I was disappointed that we had missed the opening times for the Museum, but got a kick out of visiting the boyhood home of Earl Hamner (John Boy) . In the Country Store, they give you a key to open up the house on your own, a sweet touch that really adds to the snooper's delight.
Although I don't think that anyone lives here, it felt very homely to me. So simple, uncluttered and peaceful.
I like this wardrobe very much.
I would have liked to have hung out a bit longer, and plinky plunked on the piano, but I was aware that hubby was in the car with the kids and the engine running, so it was a quick tour for my aunt and myself.
and once again I here the voices of my mother and father, my brothers and sisters
as we call goodnight to each other before we sleep.
The End...Earl Hamner
