Upon hearing the news of the passing of Don Knotts, I was deeply saddened for about a day. But news of the passing of Andy Griffith is still like a punch in the stomach, 2 weeks after hearing of it.…Continue
"Absolutely...but only on the condition that Walmart ceases to exist. That monstrosity of a retail monopoly, as we all know, has pretty much killed small-town America. And what's worse is that nobody seems to care, just as long as they get all…"

"The single greatest scene from the entire run of TAGS is Andy and Barn on the front porch waiting for Mrs. Lesh. The greatest line ever from TAGS is Barn telling Andy that he got his parents a septic tank as a gift. My favorite episode and my…"
Upon hearing the news of the passing of Don Knotts, I was deeply saddened for about a day. But news of the passing of Andy Griffith is still like a punch in the stomach, 2 weeks after hearing of it. Why is this? What, exactly, was it about the man and the character of Andy Taylor that resonates so deeply with so many people?

What is your favorite episode of The Andy Griffith Show?
"Barney's First Car"
Can you share a short bio with us so that we can get to know you better?
Live in a small, I mean small, town, very much like Mayberry. Recall becoming visibly upset as a youngster the day I found out that Mayberry does not literally exist. Thought for sure the series really was filmed in North Carolina. MASH and The Andy Griffith Show are, by far, the 2 greatest tv series ever.
What sort of hobbies or interests do you have?
Hunting, reading, watching TAGS, Pittsburgh Steelers all the way, country life. We live in the woods here, much like the Darlings. However, I listen to heavy metal music, not country.

I think we may have done something like this before but it's always fun to revisit some of the classic lines from TAGS. Those immortal words that live on in the hearts and funny bones of us fans are definitely worth remembering. Let's list some…See More
"Good info, Janice. Somewhere, I saw a trailer made before the first episode aired, I believe, that showed Andy and Barney either raising or lowering the flag. It might have been in the first episode. But that was a great way to end…"
" Prior to the 1980's, restaurants tried to serve what a household wouldn't ordinarily make. That is why pizza and steak places became so popular in the late 50's. Now, since hardly anyone cooks any longer, you are seeing more…"
"Much of the movie was filmed in the town of Los Olivos, California. About ten years after it was filmed I moved to Solvang, about 5 miles away. Of course I couldn't wait to visit Los Olivos and look for tell-tale signs from the…"
