Hi All, I am also a Newbie to your family. I'm from North Carolina and have been a Walton fan since I was very young. Since I don't work during the summer I have discovered The Walton's reruns and thoroughly enjoy watching them almost every morning. Erin Walton was one of my favorites and I named my daughter Erin. I made the trek to Walton's Mountain (Schuyler, Va.) several years ago and the area is absolutely beautiful! I am glad to have found others who love the Waltons too; none of my friends or family share that love. (thank goodness my husband did love the name Erin even though he doesn't like me telling people where I got it from)

Reply to nixonspeech from a fellow Tar Heel:
Isn't it amazing how family programs have fallen out of fashion within the past 30 years? I'm speaking, of course, about shows that espouse eternal moral standards such as honesty, integrity, and compassion. It's even more amazing to me that there are many people in our country who do watch these shows on reruns but don't want to admit it to others because it's not "cool." I don't get that. In the 1950s, 60s, and 70s, our TV icons were the "good guys." Now, the cultural heroes, on TV and elsewhere, certainly aren't the good guys but those who are rebellious and opposed to the values exemplified on programs such as The Waltons.
