Welcome to the archive of “West of Mayberry,” which published from January 1, 2009 to January 1, 2012.

This was my second foray into blogging, where I focused on the simplicity of living in the relative quiet of the mountains of East Tennessee while caring for my grandmother and building my relationship with my partner, The Attorney.

Because this is an archive, the posts are arranged by year in chronological order instead of the most recent first like a current blog. Navigate the menu to your left.

Some links and images within posts may have become broken over time. I apologize for any content that may be missing.

Enjoy yourself.
