Have you ever gone somewhere & felt as if you just stepped into a "time-warp?" That's how I felt when we arrived at "Big Daddy's" hometown....Kittanning Pennsylvania. I mean, he told me it was "smalltown," but honestly I didn't realize just how small!!! He literally drove me thru the streets (I use the term loosely) and I saw pretty much all of Kittanning in less 5 minutes!!! As driving thru the town, I felt as if I was going to see "Gomer Pyle" come running out yelling, "CITIZENS ARREST....CITIZENS ARREST." I kid you not, this little town of Kittanning which "Big Daddy" grew up in, is just like that of Mayberry!!! Don't get me wrong, it's BEAUTIFUL scenery, but the buildings are the same ones that were here (with the exception of a couple & a few name changes) 20 years ago when "Big Daddy" left home for the Marines!!! Other than that, the girls are excited about being here in "Kippsburgh."
