Dear Earl, Thank you so much for bringing us the Waltons, a bit of sanity in a mad world. I am a Priest in the New Forest in the UK. I take services at a beautiful old Church which is in the middle of the Forest, the atmosphere is fantastic. If you are ever in the UK please drop by and have a chat, and that goes for anyone reading this message all are welcome. I recommended recently that all schools should include 2 sessions a week of watching the Waltons in their teaching schedule so they could learn morals and how to treat others, it would be simple and very enjoyable. The web site is great. Blessings Rod Walton Ps the name is for real
Have a question for anyone. Heard today that Paul Harper (David's Father) was on a Walton show one time. Is that true? If so, which episode? Was so sorry to hear of his passing recently. Thanks for the info. Warm Walton Wishes C Rowe

The Waltons was our family's television highlight every week, and the characters were like dear friends. The childre were the ages of my own parents as children during the Great Depression, and the homelife hit a strong chord of family, fun, and values. Imagine how delighted I was that the Hallmark channel is now running the series, and they started with the first episode! Thank you, Earl Hamner, for creating this wonderful series that has held a unique place in the hearts of so many across these decades. God bless!

Again, hello Earl [The Waltons] reminds me of my Grandpa and Grandma's farm. I took for granted it would always be there.Oh how I miss it. The show makes me feel like I am there again. It too is my happy place.
I have a question for anyone who might know the answer. First off, I absolutely adore the Walton's. Why is it that Olivia always called her mother-in-law, grandma instead of mama walton or mama? Also, in the episode where grandma & olivia went to welcome the family from new york to the mountain and olivia introduced herself and then introduced grandma as " this is my husband's mother" instead of saying and this is my mother-in-law? I never could understand that exactly. But grandma always introduced olivia as "my daugter-in-law. Nothing major just have always been kind of inquisitive is all and thought maybe if earl hamner read my post could put a little light on the subject is all.
Hi Earl, My name is Christine. I have watched the Waltons since the telivision show began. I have all the DVD seasons. I am also a scrapbooker.
