RIP, Andy

The sad news today is the death of the beloved Andy Griffith. 

We never, never tire of watching the old shows, especially the first ones when Opie was so little.  The Darling family and Ernest T. Bass episodes are favorites.  There are always comments about Aunt Bea when we have pickles.  Remember the Gypsies and Aunt Bea's earrings?

We have friends who have most of the shows memorized word for word.  When our granddaughter was four or five, she asked for Andy Griffith videos for her birthday.  I think it says a lot when we can get 200 channels of new programming  but always go back to these old shows we love.

Rest in peace, Andy.  You made my life better.  Hey to Goober!
