Just wondering. Why can't people in this area keep appointments or call to say that they will be late or can't make it? Can any body answer me? What gives?

Hmmmm....let me think about it, Hmmmmmmm, maybe because the local Arikes are flakes? Perhaps they have such a huge personal net worth that they do not need the business? Perhaps they consider themselves too high on the Ebay consignment food chain to deal with the, "little people". Like father, like daughter
I guess it is hereditary here.

Basically if you move to Calico Rock you, can't count on people to show up professionally or for friendship purposes, ever. If you offer an item for free in Calico Rock expect to store it for free until these lazy asses decide to come over and pick it up at their convenience, months later.

Only move to Calico Rock if you are self-sustaining, secure and, can import professionals and friends. And good food.

If you want to give something away and you offer it, and they say ok just hold it for me. Thats when you chunk it into the garbage. They will want it two months later.

Great comeback and you are quite literate as we can all see by the way you type! A true blue Calico Rocker.

With flakes like you that offer opinions here it's no wonder that out of towners are moving in and taking control of this small town. I guess it's easier to tell people to get lost than it is to become responsible and display professional business practices.

You are a joke!

If the best is what the town has to offer are the ones on bench braggingat gas station, my family will be running the town in no time.
According to them, there the smartest in town.

Thinkin' of running for Boss Hogg. U hillbilly's r a hoot & half. I seen the names on cronies list, only a few native in positon. Seems like u'r people vote in names common in Northern States.
I drive a Ford Truck so that should get several votes from u hillbillys. Just waiting for our house to be finished and we'll be there.

Sounds like Mayberry USA. Love it, with my US NAVY retirement check I don't have a problem. Got my Ford truck, so I'll fit right in.
People on gas station bench filled me in on all the details of local politics. If the biggest thing on city halls agenda is the video camera, I've got it made.

I agree, let em all go back if don't like it. I've been to almost every US NAVY port around the world and ready for small town life where the biggest problem is a newspaper guy with video camera.
What happens in those meetings that they need a camera anyway ?
Looks like a bunce of people whining about things can't do nuthin' about. People on bench said it's the whining that got old block building torn down near flooring mill. I'm new to area, but I thought that building was so cool. IF any needs to be dozed down, should be house beside laundry. Maybe some more, but haven't seen them all yet. I should be back down in a couple weeks and get more info from guys on bench at gas station.

Don't have to worry about me. If I say "I'll get it", I'll be there, maybe in a few hours, but it will be that day or evening.
I'm planning on a wood furnace to be installed. If anyone offers me free wood, I'll cut, split, and haul it off u'r land. After doing some dirty jobs in hot climates for the US NAVY, I'll appricate anything people wil be kind enough to offer for free.

Goober was always there to do the job and happy to assist anyone that required his assistance. Aunt Bea was always there with with a hot fresh home made meal. The pharmacist was not a class A sex offender, and preachers led people to faith instead of lies for a special interest group.

People in Mayberry were considerate enough at least to go through the switchboard to let others what what was going on and when they were going to be late or, not to show up at all.

How does this classic Mayberry show compare anything near to Calico Rock with, people that do not show up for appointments, restaurants that serve reheated mediocre food and, the rest is well known around this community.

Hey, whiners, the road goes both ways. If you don't like how life is here in Calico, why don't you go back to the places you came from? Why do you people insist on coming in here from somewhere else and try to make it like the place you came from? If back home is so great, what the hell are you doing here?

Think that show was written by pro-gay anti-gun people. Only married one in it was the drunk. Floyds barber show was the gay hang out.
Howard had gay written all over him. Goober was A Sexual.
Aunt Bee had to have been closet lesbian, all those years only on male sutior. Maybe all the guys seen Aunt Bee getting dressed in window and turned them gay. Andy, don't remember him with a gun. Barney had only one bullet. Andy and Barney never got laid by girl friends.
