Passing Along "The Friendly Town"

I am a guy who does coupons. Yeah, that's right, coupons. I cut them out, look for them online, redeem what the stores give me on the back of receipts and collect rewards points back on my gasoline. I'm not fanatical, nor am I an expert, but I do pretty well. Once at CVS I had a $46.59 bill and only paid $7.19. At the local Sunoco gas station, I have filled up my car (up to 20 gallons) many times for as little as 38 cents.



That brings me to the point of this blog entry. Just after… Continue

Lessons from the Mayberry Christmas Story

I love the "Christmas Story"episode of The Andy Griffith Show...and until recently, always wondered why they didn't do another Christmas episode in the seasons that followed. Then it hit me.



If you watch a lot of the other Sitcoms, they will have Christmas shows every season. And when you talk to friends and refer to those other shows' Christmas Specials, someone would always ask: Which season...1 or 2 or 3. It gets confusing.



But NOT SO with the Andy Griffith "Christmas… Continue

My Trip to the BIG City

I recently returned from a trip to the big city…the REAL Big CITY…New York, NY. As I stepped into thecrowded lobby of our hotel, a broad smile broke out on my face. My wife asked me what I was smiling about. I turned around, leaned back on the bar with my elbows and said, “Boy, you sure wouldn’t have to look hard around here to find some good felonies.” (Andy and Barney in the Big City). We both laughed out loud. And it was hard to believe what they were asking for rooms, more than $7.00...a… Continue

Mayberry and Technology

Mayberry, NC is the home of one of the most beloved television programs of all time, The Andy Griffith Show. But as far as technology, there really wasn’t a lot by today’s standards. In one episode in particular, “Crime Free Mayberry”, Barney Fife is upset at the modern marvels of the neighboring Mt. Pilot police department and jealous because Mayberry was so far behind the times. He told Andy, “We don’t have any submachine guns, no tear gas, and we don’t even have a “hee-lio-copter.” Barney… Continue

Barney Fife as Singer

I saw the episode in which people have to exclude Barney from the chorus because of his atrociously off-key singing. Funny and poignant.  However, Barney sings along with Andy in another episode in which a man whose car has broken down stumbles into Mayberry.  Barney seems to be singing on key!!

Doesn't Aunt Bee ever learn?

Two episodes featuring Aunt Bee have the same plot. Both times she feels she must leave to give Andy a chance to marry.Once she pretends to date the butter and egg man from Mt. Pilot. Then she really dates the dry cleaner. Andy assures her both times that she is loved and needn't leave if he does marry.Listen up, Aunt Bee!

Rest in Peace, Mr. Griffith

Rest in Peace, Mr. Griffith

written by:  Holly McLeod, PHR

It’s been a long while since we’ve visited Mayberry together and learned a thing or two from Andy and the gang about what it takes to have better relationships, be a little more patient, and yes, even to be a better employer.  While these lessons are important and entertaining, we can’t forget the ones who made these lessons possible.  We’ve lost a few cast…

Andy of Manteo and Me

News came this morning (July 3) that Andy Griffith, the beloved sheriff of  TV's Mayberry passed away at his home on beautiful Roanoke Island, N.C.

He was 86.

Griffith was best known to the world as Andy Taylor or Ben Matlock on television, or as Larry "Lonesome" Rhodes, the role for which Griffith earned an Oscar nomination in Elia Kazan's "Face in the Crowd."

But when I lived on Roanoke Island, a place where every year-round resident is considered a neighbor, Mr.…

Quiz and music all in one!

Several years ago I wasted the good part of a rainy weekend writing a few songs about my favorite place. Last week while cleaning up a hard drive I rediscovered the damage I did back then; It's an "album" of songs about Mayberry that can provide you experts with a little mental exercise trying to figure out which episodes and scenes each line came from. Not saying that it's that good, just sayin that it's something you can listen to when you run out of dtuff to do.

You can find it at…

Hello Everyone

For those of you who don't know me, I am Ken Anderson and I live in Eau Claire, Wisconsin.  I wrote the book "Mayberry Reflections the Early Years".  I am the proud owner of a Mayberry Replica Squad Car.  Perhaps my biggest passion for Mayberry is I travel around the beautiful state of Wisconsin and give presentations based on TAGS.  My presentation is about 45 minutes long and I call it "What's Your Hurry".  It is a powerpoint presentation that includes many pictures and video clips of our…
